I'm not worried about the domain name too much. I doubt very much someone will try to get it who isn't someone we know and we can probably buy it back from them if they do. Anyway, we're not going to lose the domain name at the same time as the forum crashing, unless that's the reason we lose the site. In that case though, we should have some time to plan in advance.

Gin does have a point, as long as we have the domain name, there's no real issue.

As for people who only post when prompted to do so on SG day, I'm sure they would know how/where to contact Damien if needed?

By the way, is there an info@squaregamer.com address used somewhere?

As I said before, turning SG into a not for profit could make sense anyway. If anything, we could use the whole Google Suite for free, and have all our backups hosted there.

"This site may be hacked"

Be nice to get that removed off the google search entry for Squaregamer.

That's probably because of the spambots? I don't really know though...

Calbrena - Is SG for profit? I wasn't aware it was making any money.

Maybe it's just because the whole thing is massively unpatched.

For that matter, if you type in "squaresoft forum" or "Square Enix forum" squaregamer just doesnt show up even for 10 pages straight.

SG probably isn't a company that specifically exists. There's paperwork associated with officially being a nonprofit.

We don't need no stinkin' cyphers. Passwords in clear text all day long.

I should probably stop using the same password for everything then o_O

EDIT:
Oh man, remember when the forum was in perl? Watching the staff show each other patches was like alien cursive.

The RDM does not remember that. He thought it was always some openBB standard stuff.

So from what I can gather from this thread is 5 people care about a contingency plan for SG vanishing?

Supposedly within a year or so Chrome and Firefox will start flagging every site without SSL as a problem. So, now is a great time to start encrypting everything, since LetsEncrypt is free. but still requires effort to get it set up which is unfortunate.

The RDM thinks Facebook automatically dumps you out of groups you don't use.

You join and then don't do anything, then forget you joined it and why until someone else posts something.

Yeah this. Facebook groups themselves are a bit of a relic anyway.
