"The leaders of the DotA Allstars clan, TDA, proposed that a dedicated web site be created to replace the various online alternatives that were infrequently updated or improperly maintained."
While the start of the statement is true, there was one major online alternative, dota-allstars.info which had a strong forum community, and updated itself. It was the main alternative compared to the very infrequently updated main site which was rather basic. So it wasn't really the alternatives being not updated(I'm not aware of other alternatives for dota when DA.info was still popular, never checked.) but the main site. But its true the TDA clan (finally) brought DA.com it up to what it is and should be today.
Extra Backstory: They kinda made a deal with .info and created dota-allstars.com, and at some point later, the deal broke down, with dotaportal.com being the refuge of some of the... unhappy people. The details of this part is a bit murky and conflicting. :S
Notably, this page contains exactly the same text as the page at this LoL Wiki page. While I doubt it's CopyVio-- this sort of thing lends itself to being copied around by the original author-- it's worthy of note all the same. Thurinym (talk) 04:27, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
