I say make up your mind before you start making logos.

Because Abandonia's key feature is being able to download those games. Let's face it: there would be much less traffic if we were only chatting here
Opening to everything would mean offering warez - and that would get this site into trouble.

I'm all for it if your network is about retro gaming.
If it's only about "old games you download claiming they're abandoned" better change the name once more.

I'm not a great fan of social networks, but your idea sounds interesting and I wish you luck.
If you want to have success your idea should be innovative and different from the other Social Networks around.
Maybe those applications that let you play old games using a browser?

Doesn't really have to mean that. Social network won't allow you to download games, but you can easily find links. If games are still protected, links will lead to selling places or there won't be no links. Similar like here. Also, there are lot of games for old computers that are no longer protected. Except for Amiga and PC (excluding coin-ops and consoles because I'm not sure about them) almost every game for any other computer is no longer protected. That's a lot of games. Not everyone will be interested in them, true, but you get the point.

Due to some issues in my life, I may be putting this project on hold.

Interesting idea, I like it. Might as well be the first and the last social network I'm actually going to join.

Nick, in case you get everything sorted out and decide to go on with the project, I might offer some of my free time and assistance. Possibly even a hosting for the network could be worked out. Contact me if you get back to this.

The social network is alive again. I'm also considering different software. Elgg seems great. Plus it's open source! Unlike phpFox.

I've contacted Dino as well. Considering my free host is still down.

No matter which Social Network script I decide on using, each one has a shoutbox plugin. That will be our #1 feature.

*bows to the mighty shoutbox*

i remember sixape's attempt on this it wasn't "just abandonware" though, so i guess it's kind of a different thing
