Looks like there has been no official word since December on if the website will continue in some way. Any news, rumours, alternatives out there yet?

Oh, that explains the unsolicited email i recieved about Armageddon this afternoon.

 

Would someone from the NZGamer team care to explain what is happening?

I wonder if this means we can a copy of the forum database too? I would be keen to stand up a server to keep it alive.

I don't mind if the sale helps keep the site alive BUT we should have been consulted even though I know they don't need to and have had good ties with Armageddon peeps.

This would be the best way to go and if we don't get access to the forum database we can still start from scratch, would still be nice to continue with the NZGAMER name, if not, we can start coming up with a new name.

Pretty disappointing that this was never relayed to the NZGamer database that it was happening. I've had a good look through the Terms of Use when creating a new account and can see nothing about the right to share email information with a third party. The least that could have been done would be an email explaining the transfer and giving the option to opt in/out of emails. Also unsubscribed from their email list.

Definitely. I'll look more into some forum software and getting things up and going.

With the way technology is headed and the fact that we are from the land of the long white cloud, how about
“Cloud Gamers” :)

If you're going to double the first word, do the rest: New New Zealand Zealand Gamers Gamers ... please? :D

 

I don't feel I have anything to hide, so am not so bothered about email being distributed, and I was actually borderline interested in the email lol. But also quite happy to go with you servery people here, and it's not like you could do much worse with forum software :)

How about NZsuedforsharingprivateinformationGamer.

 

A courtesy post from the admins / owners on the front page and forums and we probably wouldn't have a problem.

 

They're clearly completely done with the site and picking the bones for anything they can.

The front page is no big loss, it’s the forums closing that will suck.
