Goodbye to DH.Net?

Posted by admin with 59 Comments

After 10 years Desiring Hayden.Net has decided to close its doors. I (Jen) do not really have time anymore to keep up with Hayden news, pictures, etc. It has been an amazing ride throughout all these years. From meeting Hayden, and his family to actually hanging out with him, was defiantly a huge highlight in my life that I will never forget. I will also never forget the supporters of DH.Net. Without you this site would be nothing. Thanks for helping me make Desiring Hayden.Net such a huge success.



I received many emails regarding the website closing, and there are some that want the site to stay up and be just an archived type site, and some friends are saying they would like to take it over. I’m torn on what to do. Just close it? Archive site, or allow others to take it over? Please be aware it was not my intention to make anyone angry, for myself it is time to move on. I still am a fan of Hayden’s and will go see his films. I just don’t want to be involved with fansites.
Anyway, give me some feedback on what you would prefer. I’m a very indecisive person, as you can see! :P

    I would like to thank you Jen for all your work and all the updates and pics.
    You did such a great job.
    You’ve been very dedicated to Hayden Christensen, promoting his career, and giving a chance for his fans to share.
    I do understand your decision to close down Desiringhayden.net. You gave so much but certainly didn’t received as much as your hard work deserved.

    I have seen some of your job, I wish you lots of success in everything.
    Please give me your email back as (if you wish).

    Thanks for everything, Jen. I know I am a long-time visitor and I’ll miss your site but I understand that life gets busy and you have to do what’s best for you. Thank you for all the news, pictures, and screencaps throughout the years, it’s been great fun. Best of luck to you!

    You’re awesome Jen. It was all cool. Have a splendid life and best wishes to you.

    It’s the end of an era. Goodbye to Oprah, Larry King, Regis, Whitney(sob) and now desiringhayden.net (more sobs).

    I had never posted before, but have been visiting this site since the beginning and I just wanted to say that not only has this been the best Hayden site imho, its been one of the best sites of any celebrity I have ever seen throughout its decade.

    Wish you all the best Jen in anything and everything you do. Thank you once again.

  6. Comment by LA-Fairy in March 2, 2022 @ 3:16 pm

    *cries* This bites. Dh.net was for a really long time a site I visited everyday, and it has accomplished so much. Thank you Jen for all the info you brought to us about Hayden.

    If by any chance, you could upload this video before monday I’d be ever so grateful, I’d been meaning to ask you for about a year now. http://dhnmedia.net/displayimage.php?album=107&pid=303#top_display_media

    Thanks, and I hope dh.net comes around once more.

  7. Comment by maria in March 2, 2022 @ 5:40 pm

    Hey, my first time commenting on this grate site. It pains me to see it get closed. But I’m wondering, will we still be able to see those great pics of him? Like from ROTS, the various events and all that? Personally, I’d continue to drool over him in ROTS and Takers.

  8. Comment by Adennos in March 2, 2022 @ 8:21 pm

    Please, don’t take off the video and gallery section =( I won0t have enough time to download everything lol
    Anyway thanks a lot for everything you have done here, have a happy lifetime and may the force be with you J.

  9. Comment by Lauren in March 3, 2022 @ 5:55 am

    I can’t elieve the site is closing, i’ve always come here for my Hayden goss and pics, ru to leave up the multimedia page i’llrun out of download space andon’t get mtme to get them all

  10. Comment by Chris in March 3, 2022 @ 12:38 pm

    Jen, you did an awesome job on this site. Your hard work and dedication were not only recognized by the fans that come here, but by the man and his family as well. It’s a sad loss to the internet that you’ve decided to close your doors, but I’m sure it’s been a bittersweet ride for you. Thanks for pretty much a Hayden encyclopedia of information, pictures, videos, etc. This is where I’d come if I needed to know anything. Don’t think there’s a site out there that can match what dh.net was. Congrats and good luck and hopefully, we’ll see you out in cyberspace. :)

  11. Comment by Fred in March 3, 2022 @ 6:12 pm

    I’m so sad !
    Jen , you’ve made an extraordinary work for Hayden and his fans, thank you and good luck for other projects and in your life.

    Fred

    Thank you so much Jen for the hard work you put together all these years for us Hayden Fans, this site will be missed! please keep the gallery and multimidia sections online they’re simply the best. I Wish you well :)

  13. Comment by Norma Lita in March 3, 2022 @ 8:14 pm

    Hi Jen…and goodbye, thank you so much for all your hard work, for your website, the best ever about Hayden. I have amazing memories of wonderful people I meet here and Hayden of course…but I understand you, after all this time you need to go in another direction…Thank you again, I wish you the best…please, I have a question, the forum will go down too?

  14. Comment by nohemi in March 4, 2022 @ 2:10 am

    sorry that fence to close this page, was one of my favorites, I think it would have been a good idea to pass the page to someone else, but I understand that like all have a life, but please, do not have enough time to download all .. you should leave the page as this … or at least leave the photo and video session, really, thank you all your time and dedication, I’m crying, but it has to face, I hope and we can grant this request or at least leave more time to download the latest memories, if you choose something you can email me to decide to do, thanks, take care and best wishes for your life.

    P. S. sorry for spelling, my language is Spanish and I have no much knowledge.

    :,)

  15. Comment by AJ in March 4, 2022 @ 3:14 am

    It’s a website made of love and will not be replicated to say the least. It was a great run with it. Best wishes in life to you.

  16. Comment by bexy in March 4, 2022 @ 10:48 am

    All good things must come to an end I guess. I’m very sorry to hear it, Jen but I understand. It’s probably a lot more work than I can imagine! It was such a treat to meet you in NYC (not to mention the man himself!) Your site has given me so many great memories with so many special people that I’ll never forget. Thanks for all you’ve done. Hayden is losing his best publicist! Bye everyone!

  17. Comment by loyalty in March 4, 2022 @ 5:55 pm

    Sorry to see this end but I do understand as we grow and move on with our lives it becomes difficult to monitor and watch someone else live theirs.

    You did a great job with this site and it bought great joy into my life at a time when I really needed a lift so thank you for that.

    Good luck and be happy.

  18. Comment by Adennos in March 4, 2022 @ 6:57 pm

    Day 3 I’m running out of supplies and still downloading as much as I can.
    Please Jen don’t take out the gallery and the multimedia section T____T
    Thanks again for all your support!

  19. Comment by Casey in March 4, 2022 @ 10:27 pm

    Thank ou for everything, you have made a website that has really helped launched Hayden Christensen and I loved coming and reading your posts. Thank you for all you have done!

  20. Comment by Lydia in March 5, 2022 @ 12:49 pm

    Dear Jen:

    I wish you the best in this new chapter in your life. I will certainly miss this website, you did a great job over the years and brought great joy to many of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  21. Comment by Gina Riedel in March 5, 2022 @ 11:46 pm

    Great job! We’ll mis you, Jen. I’m on Facebook if you want to keep in touch with Hayden-related news. :)

    We met at The Social after Bullrun in 2006. :)

  23. Comment by mrpickle in March 6, 2022 @ 1:22 am

    Bye! May the force be with you all.

  24. Comment by MC in March 6, 2022 @ 3:21 pm

    Well, it’s still your choice.
    If you think that you’ve invested too much of yourself to just give it to somebody else, close it.
    If you still care about Hayden, let someone else give it a try, perhaps supervise it as much as it’s possible for you.
    If it’s none of the above, but you care about his fans, choose the archived type. So if we ever wonder where a certain picture was taken in the last decade we can come here and search for it and take a trip down memory lane.
    Anyway, thanks for all the time, effort and money you’ve spent on DH.net.

  25. Comment by Mel in March 6, 2022 @ 3:57 pm

    First I want to thank you Jen for this great website. I love it. I am a big fan of Star Wars just because of Hayden Christensen. Too bad that you want to close it. I hope you’ll reconsider everything and retain the website. But I wish you well and good luck!
    Best regards from Austria:)

  26. Comment by LA-Fairy in March 6, 2022 @ 4:05 pm

    Ohhhhhh nice!
    I think you should do half and half Jen. Archive some of the really old stuff, and let someone worthy take over. And every now and then stop by and say hi to us LOL

  27. Comment by Just me in March 6, 2022 @ 4:13 pm

    Don’t close the site!!!
    This is one of the best webs out there and you have like a Hayden Christensen library
    I dunno maybe somebody else will like to take the site.

  28. Comment by Maria in March 6, 2022 @ 4:24 pm

    First of all thank you for the great work you’ve done. I really love the site. It would be cool if you could find someone worthy to take it over. If not I would be great if you could archive the site so that all the cool stuff doesn’t get lost.
    Greetings from Germany

  29. Comment by SC in March 6, 2022 @ 4:49 pm

    I’d archive it. This was your baby and if you let someone take it over, it would really have to be someone you trust explicitly to carry it on in the same manner you did. If it was me, I’d just archive it as it is and if someone wants to start a Hayden fansite, let them make their own creation. Just my personal opinion!

  30. Comment by lauren in March 6, 2022 @ 5:55 pm

    I’d let someone take over maybe. But, it would have to be someone that is a true Hayden fan. It seems quite a few of his so called “fans” like to hate on him when he’s not working or for who he’s dating. If you’re a fan of Hayden, you like him no matter what and don’t hate on him for having a girlfriend.

  31. Comment by Rita from Rome in March 6, 2022 @ 5:59 pm

    Dear sweet Jen,
    Please don’t close this awsome, fantastic site!….I can understand you if you can’t manage it so much…life is changing and many things are changing too, but please choose someone able to take over all the sections of this incredible masterpiece: gallery, video, press and multimedia as the same manner of you do! -Of course! - And if you couldn’t, please archive it but let open these sections for being able of seeing them! Thanks a lot again for your fantastic, magic, incredible job during these ten years!…You’re a really special person!…wishing you a lot of good luck for everything you plan…and hoping on hearing you often, even though you’ll “give your baby” to someone you really trust! Please let it fot all of us! many heartly hugs with all my true friendship!

  32. Comment by Jessica West in March 6, 2022 @ 6:15 pm

    PLEASE DON’T SHUT DOWN THE WEBSITE OR GIVE YOUR “BABY” AWAY TO SOMEONE ELSE. I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF HAYDEN FOR 7 YEARS. THIS WEBSITE IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME. LIKE ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE , TRY TO KEEP THIS SITE IF YOU CAN. PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE KEEP THIS SITE OPEN ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Comment by Stacy in March 6, 2022 @ 7:08 pm

    I say archive it (at least the Gallery/ video stuff that may not be found elsewhere) and move on. You put too much work into this site to just hand it over, and who’s to say that whomever might take it over would stay true to your vision? Anyone who is so invested in Hayden that they would be angry at you for closing maybe should devote that energy into building their own Hayden website. Just a thought. You have no obligation to anyone, Hayden and his fans included. Do what your gut tells you. You’ve done a great job!

  34. Comment by Jhené in March 6, 2022 @ 7:47 pm

    Hi Jen,

    I think I was 17 when I first visited your website, since then I followed your posts regularly.
    Now, I’m turning 26 and I realize I kind of grew up with this site which was my number one source about Hayden until today !

    I can’t even imagine how many hours you’ve worked on it during all these years.
    You always provided it with exclusive media, HQ pictures, not to mention the “birthday projects” you’ve set up, etc…
    Your dedicated love and work for this fansite is just amazing ! So I may say it’s not only a website that I would be missing, but a little part of me too, I guess it would always refer to a period of my life.

    I would feel selfish to tell you not to close the website. If it was your first decision, it means that you need to close it. It’s been 10 years, after everything you’ve done I think you deserve to move on.
    Besides, if you can no longer spend time on it, this passion may risk to become a chore, which would be a shame.

    I guess the wiser decision for you and the fans would be to let your friends take care of it if it’s what they want.
    In this way, you’re not abandoning your “baby” and will always be able to keep an eye on things from a distance.

    No matter what decision you’ll make, think of what would be best for you first, alright ?

    Thank you for your amazing job, I’m really grateful for everything you’done so far, I wish all the best for you !

  35. Comment by skye in March 6, 2022 @ 9:14 pm

    This is such a fantastic website, I want to thank you for the 10 years you have given to all the fans of Hayden. You have put your heart and soul into this website. I hope that you wil feel comfortable with the decision you make about the website. Archiving the site would be wonderful for everyone, it would let you bow out, and let Hayden fans have access to all this information. If you find someone you trust to adopt it, that would be even better. I think you feel it is time to move on and not feel pressured to be involved in the actual running of a website. Archiving the media/gallery/video sections, if no one takes it over, would be a nice option for everyone. It seems a shame for all this work and dedication to disappear totally. I discovered this website a couple of years ago, but have only commented one other time. Thanks again and best wishes in all you do.

  36. Comment by Roxi in March 6, 2022 @ 9:51 pm

    jen, ah chick. if ya aren’t sure about it and have to ask everyone then you might not be ready to just let it go. that’s normal though after putting your life into something so long. no one else can really make your decision for you. either give it up for whatever reason that is personal to you or hang onto it. doesn’t matter. you did your part. and if you give it to someone else it will be theirs and not much yours anymore. think about that. but at least you can keep the library of photos and your information archived.

    it’s not really up to the fans. you know what they want. it’s about what you want and are ready to live with. you’re the one paying for the website. you’re the one putting your time, effort and thoughts into it, basically your life. if you want it, keep it even if you have to give it to someone else maintain. just do what ya gotta do. your the decision maker. no one else was even really visiting the site dear. and it’s not because of you or because of anything you did. it’s not because you weren’t appreciated. you were. it’s because of lack of interest during a very quiet time. and life has gone on for everyone else - even for hayden. and he’ll have his big moments i’m sure and he’ll hit the quiet times like everyone else. so whatever is important to you, is what you should go for. i just wouldn’t make a big deal about it. i’d hand it over to someone else to take care of it if you don’t want to lose anything. and live a very happy life. think of you first, this time. then let this place go to whomever you want to take care of or let it go altogether. i’m sure you’re a sweet person cause i can see you hanging on a little bit.

    happy life to you—-ro

  37. Comment by loyalty in March 6, 2022 @ 10:35 pm

    I say let it go and move on with your life.

  38. Comment by Stacy in March 7, 2022 @ 12:18 am

    Look at it this way - if you don’t have time and interest in maintaining the site while H is doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, how could you hold the site up to your standards if/when he actually returns to work and there’s news to share other than who he’s having lunch with or where he’s going on vacation from his vacation?? If your heart is saying let go then that’s what you should do, no matter who it disappoints.

  39. Comment by Nadia in March 7, 2022 @ 2:06 am

    I think you should let someone take it over. I can’t imagine the site frozen. This is an amazing, awesome, fantastic, incredible page, seriously, the best website I’ve ever seen.
    I followed DH.net since… A realy long time. I’d never commented but I’d always was there. Reading all the news, watching all the pictures and videos.
    You should just give your friends a try, an opportunity. I don’t think they’ll screw up the website or whatever.
    However, It’s still been your choice. Your future life is more important than a website. If you can’t handle it anymore, don’t worry, do the Archive thing.
    I mean, anything would be better then close the page.

    Best wishes for you, I hope you have an amazing life, Jen. Thank you so much for everything and please don’t forget to visit us soon =3
    Kisses from Argentina =)

  40. Comment by bridie in March 7, 2022 @ 6:14 am

    PLEASE don’t shut the site down completely. If it’s not for someone else taking it over, then please keep the galleries and media section. You put so much effort into saving and publishing all those goodies, it’ll be a shame to see it all go to waste. So please keep it open/try to archive most of it!! I’m sure it’ll be much appreaciated by loads of loyal fans. :)

    All the best for you, Jen!!

  42. Comment by pennyc in March 7, 2022 @ 4:07 pm

    Jen you’ve done a terrific job over the last 10 years and I for one, have been more than happy to send you contributions from the UK.

    My personal legacy has been the memories, particularly staying up late into the night awaiting live reports from Hayden’s premieres etc. and sharing the excitment on the forum which has led to continuing friendships across the globe.

    As to what to do with the site, in the end it’s your baby and the decision, what ever it is, I think should be made in your best interests.

  43. Comment by Ami in March 7, 2022 @ 10:53 pm

    Oh my. Don’t let people try to pressure you into staying with what you decided to walk away from for your life and personal choices. Give the site up to someone who won’t mind looking after an archived place. And oh my word dear. Don’t let someone else run the site for you. Just archive it and have them look in on it. I would never let anyone, especially a fan, a hold of it. I wouldn’t particularly imagine allowing a fan take it over nor even my closest friend. I could possibly see having a friend watch the archived site maybe but not taking the existing one over.

    You should get to where you are wanting to go in your life and do it as painless as possible. That’s why I suggest to archive your site and have a friend to watch over it. You don’t need anymore to do with something your heart is not in and where your priorities have changed. At the same time there are plenty of people who are just waiting to take things over in the name of Desiring Hayden. You might trust them, but oh dear… too many friends are lost over things like this. Exactly the reason if I were you I’d just archive the dear photos for the care of another to watch over. Walk away for your life purposes which is far better for you. That’s more important. And be proud of what you’ve done and then enjoy your life. Don’t feel guilty for walking away. You should be proud of what you’ve done.

  44. Comment by diamondeyed in March 8, 2022 @ 12:33 am

    I’ve been visiting this site since I was 13 years old and I have to say that it’s been a significant part of my life. Seeing it close will be very sad. But I also understand that you’ve reached a point in your life when you want to move onto other things. This site I’m guessing has probably been a huge responsibility for you. I would be sad if the site closed completely. Perhaps like others have been saying you can archive the galleries, media sections etc and just close the main page and stop updating. No other Hayden site on the web is as comprehensive as yours and it would be a huge loss for it to close completely. You’ve put all this time and effort into it so why get rid of the results of that great effort? Again, archiving it and getting rid of the homepage would probably benefit both you and the fans. It’s been a pleasure, Jen. Thanks for 8 wonderful years. :)

  45. Comment by lolosun in March 8, 2022 @ 8:57 am

    Please archive the site, at least. Don’t massacre all these years of work.

    Thank you Jen for 10 amazing years of Everything Hayden! It breaks my heart that this wonderful site will be closing, but I understand it may be time for you to move on to other things..maybe you could pass the torch to someone else? I agree with the others It would be such a waste of your hardwork to have everyhting cleared out,,Since we all know he’s such a hard person to keep up with! lol..This is the only site where you can truly have updated news and info about him, be proud!

  47. Comment by Rita from Moscow in March 8, 2022 @ 7:03 pm

    Jen, you have a female pride? and human dignity? close it and don’t think more! there is something, and you know it. there is no uniqueness in your site.
    He doesn’t want you.
    Live. be successful.
    Marry, give birth to beautiful healthy children.
    Close this period of your life. While one door won’t be closed, another won’t open!

  48. Comment by J in March 8, 2022 @ 10:41 pm

    Hello Jennifer. I may get philosophical. Forgive me. Don’t be indecisive where you have already made it clear your priorities have changed and intent on getting on with your life. Inviting so many people to make suggestions at all (which funny they all come out of the woodwork since no one has been coming to this place in ages) will only confuse you. You are a person and you have your family and your life. You need to just live it and not worry about all of this. This website and photos- they are just things. And although the legacy of this website will remain intact and are GREAT in the eyes of the fans they have a problem seeing you as a human being who needs to make her life and family GREAT apart from some website which doesn’t make you who you are. The fans are just thinking of these pictures of Hayden and great memories. Nothing wrong with that. However, You are more important than a gallery of collected photos and information. Don’t spend too much time trying to figure out what to do. Before long you’ll just talk yourself, or let Hayden’s fans talk you back into holding onto something that is emotionally hard for you to let go of to begin with. They are just Hayden’s fan. They are NOT your fan. They might say they admire you and honour you. They like Hayden or have liked him at one point. I truly believe Hayden would tell you to move on with your life, and that if you had not already had a plan to archive this place; then why are you second guessing yourself? I’m pretty sure the guy wouldn’t want you to toil with the frivolities of a website. I don’t care how many pictures are on it. Hayden does not glorify himself. The fans do. And I don’t think he would want you to second guess yourself. I think you know what you wanted to do. You ought to just do it and get it over with. And then walk away from it sweetheart. And have a great life.

  49. Comment by Chris in March 9, 2022 @ 1:34 am

    I say archive it, my friend. You shouldn’t do something your heart is no longer in bb. It would be kewl to archive it so at least we’d have a encyclopedia of his works and things to refer to when needed/wanted. You’ve done a great job on this site. it’s time now for you to go off onto bigger and better things. :)

  50. Comment by Karen Robinsin in March 10, 2022 @ 3:00 am

    Hi Jen this has been a Densational Sight. Im sorry to see it go.
    I love visiting this sight, and its so rare to find anything anywhere else on Hayden.
    He is no.1 in my book of favourite actors.

    I Love Hayden

    Thank you

  51. Comment by Ian in March 11, 2022 @ 7:25 am

    I think you should archive it. Don’t let all your hard work go to waste by closing the site. Leave it as an archive type website, so everyone can still share your hard work that you put into this site…

  52. Comment by Andra in March 11, 2022 @ 3:20 pm

    It might be nice to archive it just for the fans sake. But no website is important to our living our lives so the same should apply to you. You do what is important to you. Is it going to take up much of your time to archive it? If that be the case, and it’s going to take too much time to archive don’t worry over it. Some people don’t act like they care or comprehend that you may have a life and need to use your time for other things other than archiving or handling the dismantling of it all. If you do have time to archive it and leave it like that then that would be good for everyone else. But it’s not up to all of us honey. So I wish you the best with your life.

    There are more important things in living your life than carrying on or worrying about a website. We, the fans, would like an archived page at least. If you don’t have time or priority for it then I can understand if you let it go. And it’s ok and nothing to feel guilty over. You’re not wasting anything by letting go of something. People put lots of years of creativity into their homes and still they sell their homes and move on for something better. It’s really only the fans who are going to say that you’d be wasting it away by getting rid of it. In truth it’s not a waste. Your efforts you put into this website is the same as it was even if you get rid of the photo gallery. I think you ought to listen to yourself and not us fans. If it’s going to take up your time or distract you from your life that you want to get on with then don’t worry about this website. The website was great but it is not your life. Your life is more valuable. Do what you have time for and what you feel is best for you.

    Your website was fabulous by the way. It was the best Hayden site out there. There are other good ones now like Hayden fan News and others. But still this was the first and the best of them all. You have learned much from having a website and maintaining one. I’m sure you have acquired all of these wonderful skills to help you in your career. And I know you’ll have a wonderful future with your family. Take care of yourself and be good to yourself. That is all that is important.

    I just found this site today, and was all excited and then…. :-(

    Hi Jen….Iʻm sure itʻs difficult but as a fan of you, this site, and of course, Hayden…I saw hand over the reigns. Donʻt close it…youʻve put too much work into it to just let it go. Get a small search committee together, of maybe 2 or 3 of your most trusted visitors and have them sort out the applications and present you with 2 finalists and then decide. But shutting down this fantastic site (and forum) would be such a waste.

    Hey Jen, I don’t know what goes into creating a website; in spite of this, here is what I think. If the site is closed it’s gone like it never existed. If the site is archived it can still be viewed, however the site is in limbo, like it doesn’t have a past or a future. If someone you consider trustworthy takes over the site, it stays open, and in a few years if you’re having a boring day, you could visit the site you started and see what’s going on. I like the 3rd option! Best of Everything Jen! From Anne the Artist.

    Archive your site. Don’t hand it over to someone else. If it’s that important to you stay with it. But never give it over to someone else. I’m not sure why it’s important now what anyone thinks. None of these people cared much to participate in anything for a long time here. You will always be a fan and you’ll always have everything you’ve ever collected. But you only have one life to live. So live it and without regret. Archive your site luv and be happy.

    You ought to never let any good thing go to waste. However, you ought never let a website or celebrity fans guide your thinking once you have already made a decision to part ways. Archiving the site is favourable and you can do so without losing anything. At the same time you won’t be sacrificing your life. Get to your own life. That is more important than Hayden. He’s a good guy. But he wouldn’t want you dragging this on behalf of what his fans think. Regardless of what anyone says in favour of you as they flatter you, they will never really understand what you’ve had to sacrifice to make this a number one site for Hayden. I will go even farther to say that not even Hayden really understands in the way that really matters. The important thing is that you have given it your best shot and have created a place everyone can remember. And if you archive it, then it will be a place they can visit in the future to remember. You ought not allow anyone take your site over. No matter how much I trust anyone I would never trust them to run my business for me or take my money to the bank. There is too much politics behind things like this. Be good to yourself and take the best path for you Ms. Jennifer.

    Archive. It’s a history of this person that you have thousands of hours into. You deserve to let it stand. Hayden and his family I think, would appreciate it too. Even if he does nothing else, which I doubt, then this is his scrapbook. I hope that you do archive it.

    I agree it would be great to archive it too. I don’t think that Hayden or his family would want you do anything that would take any more precious time from your valuable life. You’ve done quite enough for us fans and for Hayden. I think that is where Hayden or his family would be appreciative. Archive it if you think it would be good all around for everyone including yourself. I guarantee you Hayden or his family really aren’t sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see what you will decide as they continue to live their lives. It’s time to live yours and not worry about us and what everyone else will want. It would be nice to archive this place for the fans sake. Hayden or his family will not be any more appreciative if you decided to scrap everything. I’m sure everyone should just be happy and appreciate what you’ve done already. No one should expect you do anything more and it is selfish for anyone to EXPECT anything of you dear. If it is allowable for you to archive it then do it. But don’t take away from your life trying to do what every fan would want you to do. Have a great time living your life.
