I think I've seen it mentioned that TFL is the sister site to THR. If so, what benefits are there to joining both?

TFL was first. When it closed in 2002 (IIRC), many of the staff started THR. TFL was eventually resurrected, but each has evolved its own unique culture.

THR now has a much larger active membership.

There aren't really benefits to joining both, much of what you'll find is the same threads in each. Someone will start a thread here and then cross post it over there.

I am a member at both, but I honestly like THR more. As John said, THR is more active.

Several of the mods here are also mods over there.

Thefiringline says it has no sisterly relation to THR. It is trackable however to a minor print magazine titled S.W.A.T.

Both SWAT and THR TFL are owned by Rich Lucibella.

Funny, I asked TFL, moderator said no relation. So SWAT, THR and TFL are one family. Okay.

John meant TFL, not THR. ;)

Doh! Yes. *TFL* and SWAT.

The relationship is as explained in my first post: some of the TFL staff started THR. TFL was eventually reactivated, but each site has evolved in its own direction with its own "flavor".
