Game over for VGMix? NOPE

Recommended Posts

So, yeah.

http://www.vgmix.com

Down for at least a week and a half now, based on when this thread over at The Shizz was created (there's no word officially about what's going on there either). Sad times, even if the site hasn't been in operating condition for quite awhile, it is part of the history of this community. Has anyone heard any confirmation regarding the current status of VGMix?

WISE FWOM YO GWAVE

http://vgremix.com (temporary address; will move to vgmix.com proper soonish)

Being put together and run by the guys behind ThaSauce with input from Jake.

The main site has been inactive for an eternity pretty much, half the mixes weren't even downloadable for some reason. I personally don't care about that site much unless it comes back without getting hacked one week later.

Now the one I'm concerned about is dod.vgmix.com, cause I know a lot of people were still all over that monthly competition. I've greatly enjoyed listening to each month's entries, and I know a lot of OCR remixers participated in those a lot.

sad for historical and sentimental reasons, but not really significant as it has been pretty much dead for years anyway. still, rest in peace vgmix

Pretty much sums up my thoughts thought it's a shame how it pretty much died.

Not only that but man, MANY OC ReMixes started as DoD entries that were either refined or just directly submitted. It's definitely cause for concern.

Thanks for the info, Kyle. That's good to know.

Well, the least that can happen now, if the site is indeed defunct and the new slim-n'-trim virt isn't going to bring it back, I hope he doesn't forget his holiday promise last year about the torrent or zip or whatever of all the archived songs. I miss them songs ;_;

The eternal optimist in me wants to think it came down 'cause they're finally putting a better version up. That is just my wishful thinking though.

He has all of them archived then huh? I started downloading some of their better stuff in 2006 but wasn't able to finish for obvious reasons. I would love to finish what I started.

VGMix.com is still registered. Not parked. Not stolen.

At this point, for the domain to be showing up with NOTHING they either deleted everything in the hosting account, or re-pointed it somewhere else, or a number of other things.

We know 2 things:

1) They didn't let the DOMAIN just up and die.

2) They (probably) didn't let the hosting account go unpaid and die.

Essentially this is happening more likely because someone DID something, rather than someone NOT doing something.

VGMix is a domain that, like OCReMix, would be pretty much stolen immediately if it was let go.

So...yea.

I personally don't visit VGMix often, but DoD was really important to me. Every month I had a bunch of new remix to listen about, some of those really good even if under OCRs standards.

I'm happy that DoD isn't dead and there are http://dod.bossies.org/ and http://dod.redheadedblacksheep.net to keep things going forward, but I would like to know that everything will turn back to normal in future :)

I loved VGMix back in the day, but hell, let's face it, the site was dead long before it ever went offline.

Hell, give it a few years and Super VGMix RPG will be back in development like it used to be.

I was checking Vgmix everyday one year ago, but then I only visited once in a week or once in a month. Now I only visited it to check the Dod results.

DOD should never die, with 15+ songs almost everymonth and 200 votes or something it's to popular. Vgmix shouldn't die as well.

I'm surprised some enterprising individual hasn't offered to buy the domain name yet.

Say... that's a good idea... *emails virt*

(haha, just kidding, virt hates me)

Lots of good music on VGMix 2.0. Man, time flies. Either way, I'm surprised that no one knows exactly what is going on. OCR and DoD seem to be, for all intents and purposes, the last ones standing. I still check Metroid Metal as well, though.
