No, Dharma Wheel is a new forum, launched by David, Dhamma Wheel's owner, a few hours ago. It is modelled on Dhamma Wheel but is intended for discussion of the Mahayana and Vajrayana schools.

So, what exactly did happen in the Soto forum in E-Sangha? Or does the dark shadow of E-Sangha extend even here so no one will talk about it?
I don't see E-Sangha as entirely bad, but their inability to accept criticism and openly discuss and debate the direction of their website with their members is what I find highly suspicious.

Im a member here and also at ZFI, buddhaforum and dharmawheel
The Mahayana sites i post in have always been very friendly and helpful, and i feel the same for mahayana followers who post here
I think this is because there is an understanding that each site is directed towards a particular tradition and understanding
So if one wants to discuss Theravada they can post here, if they want to discuss mahayana they can try the new site and so on for Zen etc
This way there is mutual respect for each other and friendly chat without any spats occuring based on a difference of views on the Buddhadhamma since one accepts what each site is geared towards and so its going to have a particular stance on certain things
I think this is the best way to go
