Cool Another FTA Site Closes

Rumor: Fta-newbies and Dss-newbies have closed
C/P kya100


here is a c&p from the man himself, fifties:
"Here's the full story;
our server bill is due tomorrow, and we had no funds to cover it. We had no sponsors, and didn't accept donations.
I was going to make an announcement of the impending closure of both sites (dss-newbies as well) today at fta-newbies, on the anticipation that we would have at least been up through Wednesday, and maybe a bit longer.
IDK if the server operator took us off-line early, or our root admin did, with plans to take the DB to a cheaper server, but it doesn't look good, and I've heard nothing.
I would like to thank everyone who visited there; we always tried to maintain a classy site. "

End C/P

C/P from FTA PEOPLE...Fifties is a Visiting Admin there...

Fifties is here, lol, and thanks for the condolences, Wil.

This thread could actually be moved from the rumors forum, since the subject is indeed reality.

Fifties is a good man and I am sorry to hear about this.
Thanks for letting us know about this socal.

Here is another example on why we ask for donations.
As you can see it does take money to run a site such as this one.

We thank all the donors for keeping us up and running all these years!

Yes was a good site ---unfortunately they chose not to support IKS and in most cases condemned it.

The many sites that got me started, and I modded on 12 years ago are also long gone.

Just the nature of the hobby.

At least they were not closed down by a court order-----Just lack of support and the fact they didn't keep up with the times.

Sites are run to support the "hobby". No sponsers means no money generation, no sponsers because nothing is working and boxes/gadgets are not selling. Very simple solution of supply and demand, the next best thing will generate alot of business and then an "official site" will appear. And around and around we go, where we stop nobody knows. No kwak, no money no hoes

We must wait until a piece of cheese is dangled again, tomcat is winning........ jerry is hiding waiting for his tidbit.

Cheers

i have a question ,no big deal but i added a site closing today which i thought was pretty useful at times ,i have a lot of friends there but not as much as here,i mean i did mention the site since it was going out for good s--n-cview support,they were very helpful and politebut i alwasys feel at home here.i have gotten some of the bins before others no big deal ,but i thought any little bit someone might use.so when someones* site is closing or somrthingin the slight bit interesting,post it this might let someone else tke the front page for once.
remember anyone can copy and paste newspaper clippins all day long thats why u see 5 thousand posts in a weelend come on put away the cough syrup,love ya all
dont be mad ,be glad give me rep pionts its been a while.
