Thanks for keeping this place going as long as you have, max. I hope things work out for you. Thank you to everyone else, too. My first home was Sheridan's site, and the various versions of it before and after the weneedahobby guys took over, then I found this place... I've never really been in a position to contribute anything noteworthy, but I'd like to think I tried to help where I could. Either way, this was a nice little community that always made me feel welcome. Hopefully I'll see you in another life, brothers.

EDIT: Just saw that the place will still be open. See you tomorrow, brothers.

This is the sole website to lead me on the journey of the screenwriting craft. Sorry to hear about your health, please let us know if there's any way we can contribute and give back. I'm truly grateful for the dedication and generosity you've shared with us all.

Thanks for constructing this site initially as a lower-cost choice to WTR which a lot of us migrated from (and likely will migrate back now). Sad to hear of your health and hope things improve. Even though less scripts are being posted on this site anyway, the forum with others we can PM trade to at least will still be running for a bit it seems. Thank you for that! Wish you well on future endeavors!

Thank you Max! I just got back from a multi-month overseas assignment, but even still I’ve valued your site highly for years now and truly wish you a speedy recovery and thank you for everything!

Thank you Max, it was a very generous and kind thing you've done for a lot of writers. I've learned a great deal from what's been posted here and all the scripts I got to read that I never would have been able to otherwise.

I hope life treats you kindly and that things improve really soon. Thanks again for everything.

Sorry to hear this but you have to do what's best for you especially when it comes to your health.

Please feel free to delete if this is inappropriate to mention here, but the ScreenWriters Network discord server has a script hub google drive which has all the same scripts as the scriptdrive one plus new ones that have been added over the past year, currently totaling over 13,000 screenplays. It's a private resource for active members of that server only, and there is a 30 day wait period to gain access, however it is free. Plus its a great community.

Good job on keeping SD posted scripts on SD only. Fan-*******-tastic.
It's inevitable that it's going to happen between public forums, and I think that just kinda has to be accepted since it won't stop, I just don't usually see it stated so obviously so I thought it was amusing.

'How to start a website'is the most Googled thing on my phone.
I cringe at the idea of all this copyrighted material being thrown into cyber space. It seems most people have the attitude of 'If this site shuts down, somebody will start another one.'
I can't believe how many script sites have shut down since I start collecting!

I imagine there are a lot of reasons for that. Some legal, some not. I would think it can just get flat-out tiring after a while, especially having to moderate the inevitable arguments between the "haves" and "have-nots." Kudos to Max for keeping it going as long as it did.

It is a fact: when operating a forum, you will need help.
If I am able to get something started; I doubt it would be open to everyone. Sad, but true.
I would like to get anyone on W2R to answer this: W2R has $60 a year pricetag. It is a fact the price is that high because Hank wants to make a profit, not judging. Does anyone think the $60 a year keeps a certain type of script 'enthusiast' away? Is that a reason why they are still around?
I would say if someone slaps down the cash, he/she would be much more hardcore than those who are not.

I can vouch for the worth on WTR. Hank also provides a notes service that, along with feedback from other forum members, helped me revise a script I wrote that placed pretty high in a recent screenwriting contest.

Does Hank still charge $100.00 for notes?
