Post by: iq_132 on February 23, 2005, 10:19:16 pm
Just the forum is down.  The rom's download site is up.  Also, Emuchina, site and bbs, is up.

Ok . I really did mean to say the forum . Anyway any idea what the problem is ?
Title: Romshare
Post by: iq_132 on February 24, 2005, 12:47:52 am
none at all :(  but you can rest assured that if the romshare/emuchina sites are still up, the romshare forums will remain up.

Yeah, I miss the romshare bbs so much that I had to register on here just to say hi  :(   I even got farther along with my frontend and was looking forward to posting the update.  The FTP site is also down.  Got my fingers crossed that everything will be back soon.

Very nice site IQ ^_^

I'd made a change in my computer and then I couldn't access the forum.

At least I know it's not me with the problem.

I did it. Me!! I hacked the damn thing coz you wouldn't elect me Master of the Universe, despite my uncanny likeness to He-Man :mad:

 :D

Actually, I'm as clueless as the next about this RS-being-thing. Looks like only the main site is is up, or parts of it. I can't access the download section.

If this is the end for RS, I'll just be over here in the corner waiting for someone to start a new gaming/emulation/off-topic board .... /leers at IQ & Square .... ;)

:D LOL

It really was only a matter of time until we all started flocking to IQ's page to get our bbs fix.

wow this place is turning into a romshare bis? lol  :D
let's hope the forums will come back with a faster server...

Just when I wanted to check out RS... is down. A month has passed since last login, I hope everything is ok.

So...we spam here now, right? :D
Hi everyone btw !! :p
Title: Romshare
Post by: Styrofoam on February 28, 2005, 04:02:34 pm
Well it's not as much spam as it is fluff.
Either way, I'm all for making IQ busy cleaning up after us :D
Title: Romshare
Post by: procyon on February 28, 2005, 04:39:29 pm
IQ, during Romshare's "hiatus," would you mind if we populated the "General Emulation" section of your forum with the usual emulation news posts?  There's a new ClrMAME Pro out and such...  I didn't want to just assume that you wouldn't mind...  Let us know.  :D

awww for feck's sake Ender, you haven't been here 5 mins and already you're rep whore :D

.... and to anyone about to report this post to IQ; don't, Ender's my friend (well sort off ;) ), so I'm allowed to diss him like this :cool: :p

ahhhh it feels so good to spam and annoy again

Post by: procyon on March 02, 2005, 08:34:15 pm
Man, this really sucks  :( I'm really starting to miss RomShare now... Trying to update MAME without it is kinda hard... my only sources are the newsgroups and the IRC, and I hate F-Serves... How are the rest of you coping?
Title: Romshare
Post by: James33 on March 03, 2005, 06:51:46 am
I just hope the forums data base is intact .As it would be a shame to loose all that info.
Title: Romshare
Post by: miko on March 03, 2005, 07:36:49 pm
is anyone a member of the EmuChina BBS ?
maybe we could ask whats going on in their 'water zone' :)
hopefully Webmaster might reply.
getting a little worried now  :(  :confused:

i'm confident that said info can be replaced if necessary by our nearly 10,000 members ;)

@miko - hi :) good to see you here!

Post by: Ender on March 04, 2005, 12:05:39 pm
Over two weeks now I think.
I'm starting to think we may never see the board again. :(
Let's hope I'm wrong.
Title: Romshare
Post by: neo04 on March 04, 2005, 12:44:24 pm

:D  :D  :D  It's not all bad news!!!  The FTP site came back up!  That's a good sign!

I bet the BBS can't be far behind!

Is romshare forums down again ?
Title: Romshare
Post by: miko on April 21, 2005, 07:04:04 pm
yup and it looks like its all of them this time, hope Webmaster is just moving to a new server, wish there were news posts to tell us stuff like that, my hearts in my mouth here, could be good news (new server), could be very bad :confused:
Title: Romshare
Post by: iq_132 on April 21, 2005, 07:33:34 pm
Well, I talked to Square, who talked to Bibi (Webmaster), and apparently Bibi said that RS should be much faster soon.
This leads me to believe he's switching servers again.
Title: Romshare
Post by: miko on April 21, 2005, 07:45:31 pm
oh well, all smiles here then (and probably with Square also ;) )
:D

edit - tis now back up and seems nice and fast...
:D

Post by: Ender on April 23, 2005, 06:04:22 pm

Title: Re: Romshare Forum
Post by: Robert on April 15, 2006, 05:32:14 pm

Title: Re: Romshare Forum
Post by: iq_132 on April 15, 2006, 08:42:11 pm

Thanks for harbouring us once again IQ :)

Maybe it's time RS got it's own little sub-forum on neosource eh ? :wink:
Title: Re: Romshare Forum
Post by: Styrofoam on April 17, 2006, 04:24:34 am
RS down again .... and it looks very deleted this time.

Anyways, we all knew this would happen some day, so Ender and I have started a little community for the RS regulars, it's here: http://www.2104.dk/forum/index.php

IQ: hope itøs OK I post this in here .... if not, well then feel free to spank me :biggrin:
Title: Re: Romshare Forum
Post by: Robert on April 17, 2006, 06:26:38 am
Yeah tried Romshare just now and got a 404 page not found.
Title: Re: Romshare Forum
Post by: iq_132 on April 17, 2006, 10:19:37 am
I think Webmaster may have grabbed up one of the free romshare domains,
but that's just speculation.
Title: Re: Romshare Forum
Post by: Styrofoam on April 17, 2006, 10:55:50 am
Could be, I'll check it ....

*edit* so far no luck, but it could take a good 24hrs before it's registrered ...
IQ do you have WM's email adress ??
