Goodbye Abandonia
 
I remember when i was in college , more than a decade ago.
I had a weak laptop and could notplay many games.
I found Abandonia (and abandoia reloaded) and many games to play. A lot which escaped me in my younger years.
I kept an eye on the site and saw its updates dwindle as fewer articles get posted.
Today i see the writing on the wall with the casino article.
I know this is a tactic , of the lowest form , to generate revenue by inserting casino links into articles. It's not even subtle here.
To the team behind abandonia , thank you for all the work over the years so that I could see so many games I enjoyed.
To the forums , though i very rarely interacted , have a good one.
Goodbye and thanks for all the fish.

For them mods feel free to delete this post. Just wanted to give a warm goodbye to a site that held a certain place in my heart for many years.

I doubt it's the site and not the hack. I killed the "news", if it worth something.

Um, Mystvan, I am, so to speak, "technical specialist", and you could know it already, as I keep saying it in every occasion. I have, um, technically, powers of supermod and updater, but I rarely use it, because I got it as side-effect of my actions, not because I wanted them. And while there are "real" autorities, I am trying not to mess with site functions. It's simply not my area of knowledge, and my last update (that I messed somewhat) shown it too. :)

Well, sorry for my insistence, but I think you could replace the absence of Admins and Updaters... Just my opinion.

Why? Because I believe it would be a matter of time before you had more experience and learning on how AB Forum works... :idea: Eureka! :yahoo: Because it is critical to have at least one active Mod and you have been the most active of them lately...

:umm: Ummm... I am not sure, but it looks like Grand Emperor Japodeis :king: and Capotain *salute* :poke: are currently “missing” as they are visiting their Twinsen, Paco :paco:, on planet Twinsun... :sunning:

And while WebSpace God of Hollande is probably Lost in WebSpace :sos:... Or exploring the infinite and vastness of WebSpace Cosmic... :starwars:

Japo is here, and reacted quite soon. I could be "real" admin, of course, if I had the time and willing for this. Unfortunately, I involved in too many personal projects for my own good, not counting "real" work and family. So no, while I can be useful somewhat, I hardly totally suit for this job. :)

Closing this thread, as it's now duplicate with the official announcement.

PS I came to Abandonia for very similar reasons... I too remember quite a lot from that time, though not everything any longer.
