Site shutting down

Post by snarfblatt » Fri Dec 11, 2020 10:12 am

Hey all. Sometime in January AOFroobs will be officially logging off permanently. It's been a long time coming. The hosting we've been paying for is coming to an end and rather than trying to find a new place to host and keep spending money, I've made the hard decision to just let it go.

Feel free to flame, I understand. I wish everyone the best.

No flame, but how is the game doing? Still around? Healthy and okay? I've been gone for a while.

Thanks for hosting aofroobs all this time Snarf, you've truly done AO and the froob community a great service all these years <3

I'll be sad to see aofroobs go offline, but I understand the decision. For any players looking for a new home, please come join us on the now froob-friendly official forums or the Anarchy Online Discord or in-game in the froob200 bot. :)

In the meantime, we still have some time to archive our favourite threads in the wayback machine.

How easy would it be for you to export the dB and let someone else take it on?

Doable, but would have to be entrusted with someone known.

Hi there, i have never used your forum but since this is one of the final sites dedicated to game that i loved a lot in the past(no matter i left like 12 years ago), i think i can provide you with free hosting space on one of my servers. Please give me a message with what resources you need and i will try to help you out.

Hi guys, I'm not sure how to send a direct message on here, sorry about that. But I have a buddy with a spare server who is willing to host the server. If you'd be able to send him over the files and data, he could take care of all the rest and make sure AOFroobs can continue its legacy. Let me know what you think! You can catch me on discord at SharpTony#2466.
