    Not that simple. I think it's dedicated hardware he owns instead of a virtual machine in a server farm, to mitigate DMCA and legal threats that'd make the host shut down the website right away if there's any DMCA from right holders.

    In any case that kind of attitude leads nowhere.

    AG has been great, and Kevin did great things for it. Lately he's lost the flame and can't bear it anymore, which is understandable in some way when your passion becomes a chore.

    Let the lasts days of AG be gracious instead of an implosion of hate.

    ^ This is pretty much the answer. Kev doesn't understand how to run a server since he uses Plesk to manage everything (which also adds on to the monthly cost).

    What I find funny is that Kevin won't sell the site, yet the longer he holds on to it, the less intrinsic value it ultimately has. He might as well make up some of his costs while he can, rather than just go down with the ship.

    So how does this work with the Refugee status over at OG? I've sent a PM to Morphic a few days ago, but I can image that's he's been very busy.

    I've just looked and it's been done. Maybe demon or morphic saw your post.

    I know, right? I wish there was some way to save everything. Like, to just download the entire forum into a zip folder for future reference. But I think we'll just have to save as much as we can in the Wayback Machine before it ends.

    Also, I'm not sure if I'll go to ObscureGamers but for now I'm just going to stay on that unofficial discord server ("Unofficial Yeet Games Discord"). My Discord username is Everlith#5361.

    I speak for myself and only myself, but close this site and never reopen it. I don't want any flip flopping.

    Wasn't the whole drama a couple of years ago because Demon was given a complete forum backup and Assembler thought he stole it?
    Why doesn't he just use that to resurrect the forum?

    No, IIRC Demon was only given logs. I think it was huge logs, but logs nonetheless.

    No. Please stop spreading misinformation.

    Kev was, once again, an idiot and made accusations about Demon which were 100% false.

    Demon was given server logs. They came to aroubd 90GB. No user information, PM's etc were ever owned by Demon.

    When Demon asked for an apology, Kev threatened him... then again, Kev is the kind of guy to claim he will sue people over April Fools jokes.

    So, yeah, please stop now.

    It's that simple. It should only cost $30 /mo for a forum like this. Plain and simple. Anything else is needless over engineering.

    Anyway, fuck everyone. See you in the bowels of the internet!

    And damn -- my 11,000th post... guess I'll leave it at that.

    Calm down, dude. It's not like it matters.
    It's a stupid rivalry on a niche forum. Nothing that happens here has any effect on the world.

    That's nice and all, but maybe you should stop running your mouth about shit you clearly know nothing about.

    It's one thing to be misinformed, but it's another to publicly state that someone potentially has a copy of all user data on the site. That certainly has "effects on the world".
