End of the ForumsEdit
In April of 2011, several tragic events took place. An RHQ veteran started having bouts of depression. He nearly resorted to suicide, coining a common term among RHQers for his attention grabbing bait and switching suicide thoughts. Many people egged him on to perform the action. Despite him not comitting suicide, Clockwork shut down RHQ for around 2 weeks and called the police.
However, the forum came back up after a bumpy road. However, it soon would go downhill once again. The forum was very hard to keep online, because of the great amount of users that were on the forums. This increased the amount of money that was needed to keep the forum alive. One user sent a photo of his private area to an unknown person. Another member ended up getting ahold of the images and sent them to all of his friends on Steam. Clockwork was gravely disappointed and gave all of RHQ a little over a week to get people's emails and keep in touch before taking down RHQ forums. Instead of his original plan to keep RHQ up for 2 weeks, he only gave the users the weekend before he shut RHQ down for good on May 1st, 2011.
