Nah, they'd just pocket it and say it was lost in the mail ;p I will miss doing the Insider though, even through the workload, it was great keeping tabs on the community efforts!

It has been a fun ride, and I'm sorry to see it end! There are a few other sites out there that will fill the void, I'm sure...maybe I'll see some of you there, or even in a game server sometime1 Be sure to say hi!

it will be sad to see one of the biggest gaming/modding website go i mean this is where i come to get all of the patches for games and mods and stuff now i will be forced to find another web site which will be hard sense a lot of the other sites want your money so you can download the files faster. well at least it lasted a good while

Is there any other site that can replace FileFront for mods? I haven't seen any others with as many mod downloads available, or am a mistaken? If not, this is a small tragedy for the gaming world... think of all of the millions of hours fans have put into creating these mods that will probably be lost forever!

One would think they'd have kept a backup of the source files in any case. Source files are like gold for modders, not least because they're vital for updating and bugfixing mods.

The biggest inconvenience is likely to be finding another place to release the mods but there's no lack of those out there - the reason those sites aren't currently used is because people were using FF instead, but they're no less useable than FF is/was.

Your Right Mikouen but who is the best alternative to turn to instead of FileFront ?
Alot of other sites host only one or two particular games ... Who else hosts them all and is a free server ? ... If any one has a preference, I would like to know instead of a lot of trial and error !

I'll certainly miss Filefront, if this is indeed the end. All things must come to an end, but this is quite a sudden ending. Like astronomers say, it can take a long time for a star to be born, but the star can die in an instant if it shines brightly enough.frown

Mikouen: obviously the original authors will probably have their own source, the problem is that most won't bother to upload their stuff to another host once FileFront goes down (if and when they realize it.)

Even those that do will probably scatter and upload to different sites until a definitive host like FileFront is established, so there won't even be an easy way for users to find them without exhaustive searching.

You'll also lose all the comments and ratings FileFront accumulated from its impressive user base, which help separate the good mods from some of the really crappy ones. Users are less likely to download if they don't know what they're getting.

The end result is that very few of these mods and maps will be as accessible for downloading in the future, if they are accessible at all. Thus, much of the original work will be "lost" to history.

#15: If only it was just a bad joke, but I think I may actually be true. I already can't moderate comments, post news or post files anymore Cry

I'd just like to take this opportunity to say that it has been an honour to be a part of Half-Life 2 Files and of course the entire FileFront Network. I've worked here for 3 years and I sure am going to miss it an awful lot frown
It says that FileFront is being "suspended", so who knows? Maybe it'll come back someday, in some form. *Crosses fingers*
Thank you to everyone who's helped me through my 3 years here - Hfx-Rebel, Ronnie, the late 2GOOD and of course Skyrider. Thank you all so much! Two Thumbs Up!
I realise that with FileFront closing down that a lot of developers are going to have all their files removed. Which is a shame. Especially for developers such as FakeFactory, who as we all probably know by now did a phenomenal job of remaking Half-Life 2 in High-Resolution. He truly made Half-Life 2 even more worth playing through again, so kudos to him. Hope you get a job for what you do, FF (Y).
To be honest, we should have all seen this coming. What with Skyrider slacking on the PotDs =P j/k

Well, that's all I have right now. I wish you all the best for the future, and hope you enjoy Half-Life 2: Episode 3 when it FINALLY comes out! (Y)

Peace out,
THGhost.

I really don't think it's an april fool. None of the staff can access the admin panel anymore and with the email we received today I'm 99% Filefront is closing for good.

It was a pleasure to work on MoHFiles and on the Gaming forums. My 2 years as a staff here were incredibly fun and I met great people.

I will miss MoHFiles and all the Filefront community. I just hope to see it revived somehow.. But I doubt this will happen Cry

Farewell Filefront, MoHFiles.

Considering they are advising us to download the files we want to keep, i'm not sure this is a joke.

Because if it is, me downloading all those damn files, wasting my bandwidth isn't very funny.

But i'm going to go along and assume this is true, and say. farewell folks. These sites were my past time back in the day, I use to sit back and wait for specific mods, or try to assist in mods. I've created some mods for some games, on my other user and i've caused a lot of Moderators trouble, but all in good fun.

Seeya folks.

crissi and falcon, it's been a great time...i learned a lot from finally being on the ''other side'' . i really feel for the members as there doesn't seem to be a central local to at least say goodbye but non the less, they're finding where ever they can to do so .

i just hope to God this isn't because i missed the big meeting back in feb .

I wish.. But huge sites like Filefront usually don't make April fools like that. And the forums are really down.. + the email from n0e kinda confirmed it was going down for good.

Guys, its been a pleasure. I am so sad and upset right now. It's kinda like seeing a family go separate ways. Kinda like on Star Trek nemesis, ro Star Trek The Undiscovered Country. Or Generations.

While the ship is preparing to disappear beneath the ocean that is the Internet, I'd like to give a sincere thanks to the whole CoD community, you guys are the true reason this site existed in the first place.
This closing came as a complete surprise to even us staff members, as we were never warned about this. But, economic times are getting hard and it seems like Ziff Davis doesn't have the money to continue the FF network.

Again, I can't say enough thanks to all of you who have kept the site thriving for so long, since it began around 2003, 6 years ago.
While there were those members who would climb on everyone's nerves (dvdhaxor, I'm looking at you), there were also those who were constantly sending in new data to be publish, new files, new news, the works. For those of you, I can't thank you enough for all the work you guys have done.

A big thanks goes to all the Site managers and staff that led before me, I feel kind of like I'm the one who closed things down.

This has been an amazing ride, with many bumps, twists and turns. But through it all, I am proud to say that I enjoyed it very much, it added a great deal of spice in my life to say the least.

So farewell Filefront, it's been fun. Who knows, you might find me administering another site very soon. *hint hint*

This is Nightmare, as the final CoDFiles Site Administrator, signing off, and wishing you the best in your future gaming world.

I just don't get it why they won't sell FileFront at all. This way, everything can be kept up. But on a different network that won't let its projects down. Just letting it go, just is really bad and unprofessional. If they lack of funding, SELL it? That's better than completely nothing.

It is a sad day indeed. New projects are springing up and at least we at the FileFront clan now have a new home onits way.
We will also be hosting certain files and adding other sites to our list to create a unofficial network.

FileFront maybe gone but the communities will live on.

...And came as a shock to me. Ever since 2003 I've been browsing the FileFront sites and eventually took them for granted when it grew. There's something in me that wants to save anything and everything as much as possible, but... *sigh*

I wonder how details of the news will also effect people's opinions on the current state of events in life... In any case, I'm just going to miss this place big-time.

#33: Moderators can no longer edit comments, including myself frown the forums are down, so I wouldn't be surprised if the PotDs have been disabled aswell.

Such a shame that the last PotD on HL2Files had to be that crappy anime sniper! Roll Eyes (sarcastic)

i can understand them not having enough money to support it's development anymore, but why can't they simply make it so no one can add any further content and simply keep the site as an archive of past modifications. there is sooooo much history here and it would be a shame to just outright throw it away :C.
i think i'm fairly accurate in saying that over a hundred-thousand people use this site, thousands even on a daily basis, and they span across over 100 different games, some people even come for multiple titles, and there is NO site anywhere else that is this comprehensive. with that in mind, 'suspending operations indefinitely' seems a bit rash when we have so many people dependent on this type thing. even if it just continues as an archive with no new updated material, i think it would help relieve some of the uneasiness and dissatisfaction that that abrupt pop-up provided to all of us users with that whole evil, out-of-the-blue 'site will be forever terminated' message.

to #28 - Skyrider- i think selling filefront would be a great idea too if they're really having money trouble, as long as we keep the site alive.

and to #29 - IKS_Yo_Mama- if this is indeed for real, as it appears to be, i'll be looking forward to seeing this stuff back up wherever, even if it is some mysterious 'new network'! big grin

it would definitely be a shame to see all of this hard work and history merely thrown away as the linked letter suggested ;_;

Adding new content isn't what costs money, running the site is the expensive part, as well as paying their staff and maintaining equipment.

Jeff "n0e" Mills, the network manager here, is setting up a new independent network to replace FileFront, along with a group of the older long-term staff members. This group has already acquired a full backup of the network's database, as well as much of the source code, and they're currently working on making a full backup of every single file hosted on the network sites ready for migration. Got several sites fully backed up already, and even have support and assistance from several developers in this endeavour.

The forum for this network should be launching in the next few days, with a test site shortly after, and from there it shouldn't be too long until the network itself goes live. It'll be starting from scratch, so it might be lacking some components of FileFront, but it will be an ongoing development and gradually as it builds up momentum it will surpass FileFront completely.

I'll be posting news on this project as soon as I hear it, on my Twitter profile.

I think that everyone who has good internet connections should download as many files as possible and save them to discs and the like, so they won't be forever lost. pretty bad though, i decided to go to the forums one last time, and i get this stupid apache thing. sucks. despite the fact that i was already inactive after a year of being signed up, i will miss this place. shame i had to come in the final days of filefront. I can only wonder what other people on the forums are thinking...

and it is also a shame that even though i didn't really like the new forums format, it was only here for a month. n0e and hfx rebel and ronnie (I am still EPIC though) put so much effort into this site only to have it downed like this. I hope that FileFront will come back later, after this economic 'crisis'.

to #38 Mikouen - i was just thinking of the amount of actual data space that was needed to store all of the files the site had and how it had to be constantly increased as more and more mods made their way on to filefront. sorry if i sounded a little confusing, i did forget about all the other stuff you mentioned too.

And, thanks also for the info about the new network. it's just that when i read down through all the previous posts there were only some ambiguous remarks about it and nothing really in depth or anything. i'm glad at least all the stuff here will be saved then and will even be able to continue. i'll definitely be watching and waiting for this to happen. i wish the people behind it all the best of luck! big grin

It's been a great journey, 4 years of work on LotRFiles, it's really been great, I'd like to thanks the members of the site all of the developers for their mods and efforts to make the site what is is/was.

Staff have been great too, you've made my life that much more enjoyable over the last 4 years, and to meet people like you all so diverse and brilliant in your each and own individual way was what I needed.

I'm really lost for words at this moment, so my message to all of you is take care and all the best in life.

For FileFront as it is now, no.

However, we have the ability to fully restore all of the network's files and data (sans screenshots, unfortunately) on the new network as soon as it goes up.

Good to hear your you aint going down without a fight Kouen!

Well everyone, its been a good few years in my opinion. DOW Files had its ups and downs, mainly its downs thanks to picture of the day, but anyway. i enjoyed my 2 years as site manager for DOW Files and i find it hard to beleive that i'm saying goodbye to it.

All i can think to say at this point is to say thanks to Gaffer, he was a fantastic sub admin, Thanks too all the staff members that helped me over the years, HFX rebel, Despoiler, Ronnie and all the file posters that helped out at DOW Files. DOW Files wouldnt be the same without you! Final thanks goes out to the community, you guys kept us going by sending in the files, news and more contravercially, the screenshots!

I know my time as site manager wasnt loved by all, infact i'd be supprised if it was loved by some, but i did my best, and thats all i asked of my staff so its all i expected of myself aswell.

ok, i'm starting to ramble on, i'll just finish up by saying i wish everyone the best of luck to everyone and i'll definatly look into following Kouen's progress with the new network, so see you all there if his plans fall into place.

Regards,
-Sergent_Killa

To me, this site has been fantastic - I've never had to go anywhere else for file downloads, the community is great, the PoTD has been... a blast (whichever way you look at it), and I'm deeply sad to see the site fall. I only hope it will make a return someday as Kouen somewhat suggets.

A toast to Killa, Dread, Sl4sh and of course Saoreire - dudes, the site would never have been the same without you, you've all done a stand-up job.

Beer! Beer!

Peace y'all, I'm out'y

I thought you were splintering off with a different site?

As far as the other two go, I have no contact with them, so it's pretty hard for me personally to extend an olive branch. If you or Killa wants to get something organised on that front, by all means do.

Right now I'm just going over the contacts I've got and trying to get everyone as organised as I can.

First, I couldn't believe it. I thought the site was under construction or something. When I came back half a day later, it still wasn't back online, so I went to EaWFiles. Then I saw the black box on the top of the screen. As many of you guys I thought it was a joke. For 5 seconds only.

I came here when I was looking for cheats for Forces of Corruption. I browsed through the files and found out about modding. When you know about it, you really can't stop. Belive me.

Thanks to these guys I'm an extreme modder now:

Mobbman: Your mods are great. I played AEM 4.5 for almost half a year.
Smallpox: Thanks for teaching me how to use the Story scripting. Two Thumbs Up!
Sidious Invader: You're the greatest .lua expert wink
Warb_Null: Misschien heb je ook een e-mail adres? Ik heb nog steeds problemen met 3DS Max 8...
Eagle_101: Hooray for the mods that never came!

Especially:
Enceladus: Thanks for your tuts, man. I love them.
Lord X: Your tutorial was the best ever. Though, you better watch you spelling.
And Keraunos for helping me with adding my fist new units.
I'll meet you at MSN, Strategos wink

And all they others that have helped me once.
Also the guys I can't help anymore: We'll meet once again, in this life or the next.

ello01@hotmail.com


I really, really hope I will ever meet all of you guys in a brand new Filefront again.

Nope. The fiscal year ends in the near future, I'm betting Ziffy always planned to close off in the first quarter of 2009 so that FileFront wasn't on their books for the next fiscal year.

Hey guys. As you all know by now the FileFront network is closing, which means that, alas, JKFiles along with the rest of the network sites will be offline from March 30th. Unfortunately we can no longer add news posts or anything else to the site, so Im posting this here so at least people can read it.

Ive worked at this site for 2 years and have been visiting since the very early days, when Jedi Outcast was still fresh and new! Over these many years I have seen many things, the rise of great modders, record breaking mods that have clocked up tens of thousands of downloads and have had the great honour of reviewing files great and small. I would like to thank all the members of this site for visiting over the years, for making mods for us to review and being an active part of the community. I would also like to thank all our previous managers and staff for all their work and I am honoured to have worked with them and been a part of this great site!

The site is only going to be online for a couple more days, so make the best of it! Download your favourite files and enjoy what time we have left with our beloved site.

Whilst this may be the end of a great site, it isnt the end of a great community! Do not despair, because there is great effort being made to establish a new network and save our vast archive of files. I cannot reveal much about what is being planned at the moment, although I am sure some of you have heard rumours and such. Suffice it to say that a new place for us to go is being built at this very minute and should be ready in the near future. A big effort is being made to move as much as possible of the network to a centralised new home where hopefully we will be able to prosper once again.

I must make it clear that whilst we may feel sad at the loss of our site and others, there are backup plans which are being put in place at this moment, so dont worry because there is hope! Nothing will ever be quite like JKFiles and the rest of the network, but the beating heart of our community will survive, just in a new place.

I would ask everyone to please be vigilant as we wont be able to reach everyone when the new network is up and running because once this site goes down, we will no longer have a centralised place to post news items. Hopefully we will be able to spread the word about where to go once our new site is online and in turn, those people who get the message can spread the word further and we can gather our community back together again.

This might sound a little rambling and soppy, but to someone who has worked at this site and seen the ebb and flow of people of all kinds coming here, I am genuinely extremely sad and shocked that it is being torn away from us so quickly and without warning. No one knew this was going to happen, and it happened so quickly that even FileFront management couldnt post a news item about it since the pug was pulled by Ziff Davis, right at the top of the corporate food chain.

Once again, please keep in mind that we arent just going to roll over, we are going to put up a damn good fight, and we will win, one way or another! Remember to keep your eyes pealed for developments, and do your best to keep in touch with all the other members you know, so that when our new network is up and running, we will be able to spread the world quickly.

In the mean time, if I can help anyone with anything, please contact me on MSN; nozy_007@hotmail.com and I will get back to you.

Once again, thank you for all your years of support at this great site, and I hope you will join us at our new home once it is up and running!

Well,I really dont know what to say,I guess its no joke...
I want to say to the staffmembers(on the payrole that is),I`m sorry to hear you lost your job,I know how it is,been there.

To all the ultra rich sports,movie and music stars out there playing games a lot:How about a nice donation to help 1000`s of fellow gamers out?If I had the money needed to save this place,I wouldnt hesitate for a second...

I`m absolutely shocked and will hate 1st april 2009 for the rest of my life,the day one of my most fun webpages disappeared...for good?
Just cant believe it,I thought we were going strong and FF was,too...
To everybody I want to say thank you for posting,helping with and downloading/enjoying my work!Its been a great time here for me and my mod.
WCPv2.8 absolutely was an appreciated piece of work(almost 37.500 downloads),the #1 SP mod download.

My plans?Yes,there will be a new version of WCP(also for CoD1/UO),FF stopping has made me more determined than ever!
`m going to join exiledgamers after this message and am thinking of hosting my own CoDfiles type of website in the near future,dedicated to hosting,ofcourse,my own work and the other files that I`ve saved and others might send me...We`ll see.

This is WCP,signing off,I`m bent but not broken...

See you around,

WCP.

I am still in shock tbh that there will be no more soffiles. I just hope that the rumoured new network being set up by n0e is real. If it does happen I have a feeling it will be better than ever without corporate masters n0e and his team will really excel.

Now i know your all going to be thinking i am just posting this bit for advertising and in many ways your right. There are no staff to edit it so what the hell.
I loved my time here both as a member and for 2 years as staff in the network and forums.
We have all met a lot of new friends on FF and most of them I would still like to continue chatting with.
So over on http://www.theexiledgamers.com I am going to add a new user group for ex filefront staff with a small private forum, similar to the old gentlemans club.
Sign up today and make your self known.
We will let you know when the new network goes up on there and fully support n0e and the rest who are working so hard for all of us.

MESSAGE FROM JEFF "n0e" MILLS


Hey all. I know many of you have eagerly been awaiting any sort of news as to what is going on and what we plan to do for the future.

To those that don't know I, along with a tremendous amount of help from folks like Phenix, and Ronnie are making backups of all of the network sites and we plan on moving to a new network of fan sites that will be open soon. For legal reasons we may not be able to include the items such as reviews, potd's and other various bits of information on the sites. However, with the permission of the modders we will retain all of the files. Those who do not wish to continue having their files hosted on the new network need only contact me after the first of the sites are online. I'll see to it that they are promptly removed per your request. We will not hassle you about it or tell you to '***** off'. Just remember that we're restoring a database so please don't get upset after seeing them initially. We respect your copyrights.

There will be forums up and running sometime hopefully next week. When they are up I will provide a link here so you know where to go from then on. I certainly hope to see many familiar faces and even new ones. There will be a clean slate for those coming back as well. If you were banned for whatever reason, you are allowed to return and given a second chance.

The new network and forums will have one more thing that I'm sure will make everyone happy. There will be NO corporate involvement. Things will be run by people who actually play games for people who play games.

I'll have more news for everyone as it's available. I wish to thank everyone for their continued patience and I'm certainly cannot wait to have the good parts of FileFront return while just trimming out the bad.

Thanks!
Jeff 'n0e' Mills

I don't really see any point hanging around here waiting for the inevitable end of FileFront. In fact I don't see the point in any of us doing that. I've set up camp on GOODY's site - http://www.theexiledgamers.com - Hope to see some familiar names there! Two Thumbs Up!

#80, i was always here for mods for a game where I could be the Captain instead of the Captain...BCFiles was one of the sites I was visiting. as "Captains" we have the obligation to go along with the ship......

When this site mumbles his last words, I for one believe it is trying to tell us that resistance against the economic crisis is futile, but that what is living in so many hearts never really dies...

For all who's checking out this website one last time: Live long, and prosper....

so sad to see everybody scattering away in the universe called Internet..

If Filefront is not selling their domainnames, why not let them advertise the url to the new network Jeff 'n0e' Mills is talking about? that way there is 1 place we will all know about and the information will reach everybody...

But maybe people from rogue should take a look at theexiledgamers.com as well wink

This reminds me of the day I left the navy, which was my submarine's last day in commission, only there were more tears.

So I guess this an appropriate closing:
"Lieutenant, set the 15 min self-destruct."
"Aye sir."
"All hands, this is the Captain. Man the escape pods, abandon ship."

Beer! Beer!Beer! Beer!Beer! Beer!---cheers to the FF network staff, modders, and one hell of a great network!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I have a suggestion:

What if we all bought a part of the site, per se? What if all registered members payed like, $20USD? That'd be $12,904,720 USD! That'd be more than enough to run this site for the next two or three years!!! I mean, this is the bet gaming site that I've ever seen. I'd be willing to bet that upwards of 1 million people use this site, spanning over 100 games, more than 5 different countries across the globe, posting 10+ million mods (no joke there). This is a gamers heaven, and if this all goes poof, think of how many people will be mad and disgruntled. If we all sent in $20USD, then the staff will keep their jobs, and we'll still have a place for our mods to call home. This is bullcrap to close the site without even thinking of something this simple!!!

That's exactly why i think there is more to this than just financial problems, but let's face, sending in money to them wouldn't be the greatest idea considering that we don't exactly know who is getting this money and most people probably wouldn't send in money anyways the way things are now. This new website sounds like our last hope for this kind of situation. Hopefully it works.

Ziff-Davis filed for bankrupcy last year..even before the economy was taking dump..and now they are mostly a supplier of PRINT media..which is getting hit hard on all fronts, they are dumping everything that is NOT making money..and this is one of them! Notice that they are SUSPENDING the operation here, not KILLING, leaving a small window open for REACTIVATION if they find a buyer or a way to finance the cost! Too bad they did not act earlier, charge for accounts here and for file storage..this site might have had a change to survive longer.

I don't see a need to pull off my 25 maps for MOHAAS as no one plays MOHAA custom maps anyway!

Ziff Davis media is closing Filefront which included the gaming network (all ***Files.com sites), the forums and the main news / hosting / download Filefront site. So yes, the site you are posting from is most likely going down later today.

Alas the death of the network has begun, so I want to take this opportunity one last time to remind everyone no to worry, because as many of you already know there is a new network being set up which will be our new home, and our files from this site have been saved. Please check http://www.jksource.com regularly for more information, hopefully it will be up and running soon!

Also please check out http://www.therogueforums.com/filefront-preservation-forum/ as n0e pointed out, for updates on the current situation.

Once again, thanks everyone for all your great mods and support over the years, it has been a pleasure to have served this community as part of the staff here, and I hope to see you all at our new home! smile

For followers of LOTR-Files:

I would also encourage everyone to move to The 3rd Age.

http://www.the3rdage.net

We have:

A BFME Modding portal with Articles/Tutorials, a Mod database and other Downloads.

A forum with lots of active members to help you.

Hosting opportunities for your mod.

Also, Digz has joined our staff, so he's there!

BFME is old, if it's to continue to thrive then modders and mappers need to stick together, not be spread over several sites. So join us!

Well we have arrived at the last day of Filefront. Soon it will likely be the last hour, then the last minute. Then the asteroid hits, and begins digging the crater. Anyone who somehow survives the initial impact will surface to find a desolate and dark world, where the sun has been completely blocked out by dust shot up from the impact.

That's literally how bad this sucks. But life on Filefront has already found a way to survive, despite the horrific catastrophe. I have nearly everything on LOTRFiles downloaded, if not all of it. In addition, I have probably almost all of A2files up to a couple of weeks ago. Life may possibly spring from the ashes of death.

For we've all been through death...and life together.

Well, looks like the time has come. The pages for all the files appear to be gone. It was nice knowing everyone, even if no one knew me or my one mod on bcfiles. Hope to see everyone on whatever site turns out to be the new network.

I can tell you the truth now about Project S and the SoF2 CSS italy remake.

Farewell Filefront and thanks for all !

I think there are still two other options:1)very elaborate joke.(It's out of scale though)
or 2)it ahs been sold to UGO. See news at http://www.ziffdavis.com/press/releases/090106.0.html

So or so I have all files for EF and EF2(not off rel.) and some for AvP and Doom3.I might be able to slavage some other from crashed disk.but they wuld be outdated.

The Site is still up I see !!! ... I saved about 15-20 gigs of mod-map files for myself over the last couple days. I managed to download all of the FarCry Sp Maps with all of the reviews, about 90% of the Doom3 Sp Maps with most of its reviews and alot of stuff for Quake4 and Prey as well ... I also saved assorted files / patches / mods across the board of other games as well. There are supposedly people making full back-ups of the entire FileFront data base for future use, thus making my downloading a big waste of time, but if someone is putting a new site together and is looking for lost files, I may have what you need or may be able to help out.

Hopefully, I don't have the last post !

What time zone are you in for it to be April 1st already? Last time I checked, there were 31 days in March, so any time zone should still be on the 30th or 31st.

If you still haven't realized that files are being removed from home page, that the forums are really gone, that employees lost their jobs and the community is moving to new places and still believe it's an april fool, open your eyes. This is a serious network, a business network. They wouldn't play around with profit like this just for an april fool.

For some reason owner of filefront doesn't mention ANYTHING about this closing.
The still list this entire network as fully functional and still targeting advertisers.

And what files were removed?I just tried a new file and one of older (six years)
all downloading just fine.And I question deleting files,while being online,that is not modus operandi while closing sites...

I'd imagine the reason stuff is still online while they shut everything down is for our benefit. I don't believe Ziff-Davis is actively trying to screw us, so it's possible they agreed to keep downloads available until the very last minute while everyone scrambles to backup what they can.

@jamann, there is still life, me..and several others who want to visit the site until it's completely declared dead. but for now most of the functions are still operational...

@rendroc: perhaps, but shouldn't they announce that in a comment or in that deadly thing on top of the website?

It'll probably go now, everythings gone apart from the network news and stuff so it's only a matter of time.

This is an emergency broadcast transmission, this is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill.

Sorry guys, but this definitely is not an April Fools joke. We have no access to the backend of the site, so we cant post anything, and some main site features have already started to disappear, as you can see from looking on the front page.

As of now, our new Network forums are officially http://forum.strategyinformer.com/index.php

Please everyone visit there and register, and pass this message on to everyone you know! Our sites new home will be http://www.jksource.com so dont forget to check back there often for updates. Hopefully everything should be up and running soon enough!

I have no idea why this site hasnt been taken down by the Ziff Davis people yet, but then again, when were they ever quick with anything?! XD

I was proud of the mature way the members of this site were taking the fact that the site is closing. There had been very little spam at least in this thread and a few PotD threads, and then this guys comes along. Good bye File Front, I'll miss you, but I won't miss SithLord223

This was definitely supposed to be an April Fools joke. After, seeing how many people got touched by it though, whoever's responsible doesn't want to reveal him or herself. lol

Can't say I blame them. xD

"gullible, credulous, trusting, naive, innocent, simple or green." eek!

That's OK with me tho, small price to pay if FileFront is really to remain open for business for the forseeable future! big grin God, I hate April Fools pranks, especially of this magnitude! ... I backed up a whole lotta stuff for nothing ??? ... Thanks FF !!!

And with that, it's an estimated. Ziff never really seems to say to pull the plug of ff/network sites right now as I've been told, so it seems to gotten brought back up as the billing lasts until April, 12.

FileFront has been acquired by the original founders of the site and will NOT be suspended as previously announced. This is NOT an April Fool's Joke.



After learning about Ziff Davis Media's plan to shut down FileFront at the end of March, the original founders of FileFront made the decision to buy it back from Ziff Davis Media.



We're happy to announce to the gaming community that as of today, April 1st, 2009, FileFront is a completely independent company again and is no longer part of Ziff Davis Media. All previously suspended services should be active and working again. We thank Ziff Davis Media for their cooperation and willingness to keep the site and community alive.



Due to the very unfortunate timing of this event and related announcements on March 24th and April 1st (April Fool's Day), we'd like to make it perfectly clear that:



1) The March 24th announcement about FileFront shutting down was NOT an early April Fool's joke and Ziff Davis Media had every intention of shutting down FileFront by the end of March.



2) This announcement about the original founders buying back FileFront from Ziff Davis Media is also NOT an April Fool's joke.



3) We're making this announcement on April 1st because the deal was completed today and we want to bring all services back online immediately.



4) We would NEVER shut down FileFront as an April Fool's joke.



5) We are happy to be back!



FileFront has existed in one form or another (originally as FileLeech and Voodoo Extreme's downloads) since 1997. In the last 12 years, FileFront has become the gaming community's most comprehensive and trafficked library hosting millions of files for thousands of games while requiring no registration and providing uncapped download speeds. We look forward to improving FileFront and serving the gaming community for years to come.



Welcome home. Game On!



Email us, founders@filefront.com

I have used FileFront for a while now, and was downloading like mad when I thought they were going out of business. I would be glad if it stayed online and active, but I don't know what to think now. Are those peeps still fired? That would suck. Well, FileFront, I'm glad you're back, or I miss you.

Something like that...

I and many others are glad FileFront is back in business !!! ... Hopefully , "The Founders" can find a way to keep FileFront thriving without the need for corporate involvement in the future ! ... Somtimes you just don't know how good you got it until it's gone! ... Here's to FileFront serving the gaming community for years to come ! ... Cheers ! ... Beer! Beer!

I removed all of SithLord223's posts. Starforce beat me to banning him permanently.
