The count down has started, we have 362 days left of our beloved hlfallout.net existence on the internets. Me and Brumisator acquired ownership of the domain name and servers. A few years ago we successfully ran a drive to gather funds. There was an outpouring of support and thanks to members we were able to keep the lights on for several more years.

I got an alert a few days ago, that there is 1 more year of life left before our domain expires, and I just wanted to know, is it worth it? Should we move on, or stay firm until HL3 arrives? Keep the site going just because of the memories? Its old, outdated, nobody visits anymore... etc, etc, etc.

Whats your take on it?

Get a donation drive going, I'd donate to keep it running. I'm sure others would too.

hold your horses and stop throwing your money at the site. Seriously, ask yourselves this, whats the point if nobody ever visits or posts anymore?

WTF M8!

We outlasted halflife.net for fuck sakes. We're like the only Half-Life fan website left.


AND WE SHALL NOT PARISH!

hell why don't we try to revamp the website into a more STEAM/PC gaming oriented site. We have a better chance of doing that and getting more visitors then HL3 coming out...god damn assholes at Valve would rather work on Left4Dead 3 and Portal yay gravity puzzle 3,Counter-Striking your wallet with "missions" and 1337 gun skinz, Team Fortress 2 of yeah we're still updating and working on this cash cow; go buy a hat, and DoTA we bought another MOD from a different game to cash in on.

VALVE isn't even trying to cock-tease us with info on HL3 or a new graphics engine AT ALL.It's like the company has turned into a giant collective shit storm of a ton of random projects and random teams doing whatever the fuck they want rather then you know everyone working on 1-2 collective project(s). If it wasn't for the gold mine that is STEAM I doubt Valve would even be around. Think about it, when was the last time Valve released new ORIGINAL game, not a sequel or something built out of an existing game, but an Original new IP. I think Left 4 Dead was the last one, and it came out in 2008. 7 freaking years bros and brosefs, SEVEN. The name George Costanza wants to give his kid...7.

I've really started to dislike Valve over all of this to be honest. It's like they're starting to turn into the next big bullshit gaming publishing company, Valve just makes money on people and companies selling their shit on STEAM. It's like the guys at KickStarter, they're doing jack shit and are getting paid. Well maybe not like KickStarter since they have to maintain servers and what have you, but kinda on the same idea.
