What's the deal with XForgery?

mrgreenwithagun

Anyone know what is happening over there?

Not too sure. Haven't heard anything from anybody on facebook or Xbox LIVE... I don't know WHY they'd disband if they did. I always preferred XF to Forgehub.

haha i totally forgot about that xforgery. I posted on forgehub not too long ago and as soon as i did i thought to myself "why". I never get any good feedback from either of those sites. If you wan't expert advise on the two words they know, "aesthetic" and "los", then you know where to go..

Eh, I tried to post at XF over Forgehub wherever I could. I felt like my maps didn't get 'swallowed up' by other posts so easily, and that maps without trees or foliage stood a chance at being recognized on XF. I swear that every time a new 'map of all time' was showcased over there that it revolved around being subpar and including trees. I miss XF.

Well xforgery continues to produce an error message. I cannot help think that those administering it have given up.

Anyone know what is happening?

Nope. I've searched far and wide and found no word from anybody on what's going on. I haven't heard from anybody on LIVE or Facebook who belonged to the defunct group.

So I asked around the Forgehub chatbox, and got a reply along the lines of "Yes, noklu, somebody does know. somewhere."

I'm sorry but I have nothing productive to say. I only wish to comment on Fun's Post. It is the single greatest thing I have heard all day. The Grin on my face refuses to go away.
 I don't know what to put on here so I will just say Hi. HI! Also, I'm Maximo Vara and I'm 90%ish certain that I approve of this message.

I'm in serious discussion and I almost never have anything to actually contribute.

I take it there's been no word on this?

Has anyone tried contacting an XF staff member? I think one of them was Alzarahn?

Ah, I remember Alzarahn, but I haven't tried getting in touch with him. I wonder if it's a topic that they even want to discuss, actually.

I know there was...what's his name... Ah, blast it. The memory has gone foggy.

XForgery admins weren't people I ever met or chatted to, so I couldn't and haven't checked that way. It's just my supposition that it's gone down.

I remember Timothy as well, but I lost contact ages ago. Shame- they had a great setup there.

Internet Archive yielded these:

Soren515 (title: Pencil Pusher) ran a feature thread

Null Parameter was an admin (go here, mouseover his name). His Twitter, YouTube, and personal site are all dead. Listed Skype account is "null.parameter".

Alzarahn is listed as the Event Director. His YouTube account was last publicly active four weeks ago.

Ah, but I'm running out of time. I just found an (outdated) archive of the staff list, so feel free to investigate yourselves. It may be worthwhile to dig elsewhere as well, since this list is from 2010.

Hey guys! wiggums here.

I don't know if you guys are still wondering, but XF is hopefully going to be up soon. Our admin Null Parameter recently went through a move, and hasn't had time to fix the website yet. From what I understand, the website was not taken down purposely.

Hope that answered some questions, and hopefully I'll see you guys around there soon! ^ ^

To add what wiggums said, a while back something happened with the forum software (vBulletin), during that time (and ongoing) Null was moving and getting a new job and all sorts of busyness, and has been unable to look into the issue and fix it as he’s been without a home computer. The timing is bad because there was already lots of discussion on whether or not to close the site. I don’t know why it’s taking Null so long, and if he’ll even fix it. The future of XF is unknown.

PS If you can pass on the word to any other curious peoples, I’d appreciate it.
