  1. Dewit!
  2. You're reading this right, I have discovered the truth as to why Majhost has been down a very VERY long time. I have permission to post my findings here, so here it goes. BEFORE I DO THIS THERE IS A DISCLAIMER: If you try and research this for yourself, I and Spritewars is NOT responsible if you get in trouble. I did this for a research reason, and therefore I am exempt from any trouble I might have gotten into with my federal government.. Anywho, here we go: So we've searched high and low for reasons as to why our beloved Majhost has gone down. Some people had the majority of their things archived. Others, not so much. We noticed that the page says "Down for maintenance" or 403 forbidden. I have done extensive research on this topic, and I have reached out to Kevin Loch (unfortunately, messages to him probably go straight to the spam folder). We first noticed that Majhost's subscription kept getting renewed. From what I understand, there were a few time periods where the website was still accessible through certain means after it got taken offline. However, now those methods are gone. Reiterating what I just said, the subscription keeps being RENEWED. Why though? Why on a website that just says "Down for Maintenance"? There have been rumors as to why it went down, but most of them got shot down. I will shoot a few down for you as well. R: Hard drive failure A: Data recovery is rather fast, and he would have broadcast that to the users. R: He can't keep it up anymore A: Nope, he keeps renewing the subscription R: Wiping the drive A: Would be up again already. R: He's being a dick A: This one pisses me off, you'll see why, but no R: We can use Brickshelf A: Actually no, someone is removing Sprites from brickshelf, which is a recent occurence. The true answer that I discovered, which is so blatant, disgusting and surprising is that Majhost was used to host a lot of pornography, including zoophilia, hentai, and a lot of illegal, underage pornography displayed in actual pictures and through hentai. What has happened? Well, seeing as the websites subscription keeps being renewed, chances are he probably had to do some legal things, such as letting the government go through and find out who hosted the CP, and if he got it back, he is carefully deleting all of the bad things from the hard drive. The government might be doing too. To be quite honest, I don't think our things will be gone. However the reason it is taking so long, I discovered through archives. There are thousands. Tens of thousands. Maybe even HUNDREDS of thousands of inappropriate, pornographic and possibly illegal images. This is why it has taken so long, and why the website is still being renewed. The hosting hasn't suspended the website, and we can still see it says down for maintenance. In short, I'm now almost 100% Majhost is going to be coming back. Each passing day is more promising than the last. There is probably going to be a lot of authentications, and captchas, but that shouldn't bother us. Let's just wait for it to happen. We're far from dead with this realization that Maj should be coming back!
  3. I'm more interested in calling out Goemar. I bet you my computer he wouldn't be singing the same tune if his website went down. I bet you he wouldn't sift the bad files from the good ones to back them up either.
  4. Went to it pretty fast, yeah.
  5. Yeah they certainly are productive results. Goemar and Koesh are dominating the topic on VGR insulting everyone who lost something, saying "It's your own fault if you lost anything", and they're not pointing that at me either (I didn't lose my work): https://www.vg-resource.com/thread-30604.html There's the fuckery, pretty much all by myself on VGR with nobody to back me up because there are an unfortunate amount of twats who like to insult you unless you're god. They hear what they want there, not what you say.
  6. I can offer a few answers to the FAQ's: Q: IS THIS OFFICIAL?!?!?! A: Far from it. It however, is what makes the most sense, an-- Q: Then it's not real. --Listen. He keeps renewing the subscription. Why else would he? Additionally, someone is scrubbing sprites from Brickshelf, which is a newer occurence. There were also interesting events which happened on the site. Also the fact that it is always undergoing a 403 error means that someone is doing work behind the scenes. Q: How do you know this is the reason? A: Elementary. No seriously. CP is highly illicit everywhere and it was hosted on Majhost because it did not have the authentications Brickshelf had. In fact the issue with Majhost was that it was largely unmoderated and I discovered some things on the deepweb, that pointed to Majhost for being a useful site to post things to. Q: Mighty dangerous things you discovered there, are you going to get in trouble? A: No. I didn't break any laws. Q: Will I? A: I can't answer that. I don't know what you had there. Q: The hoster? A: Seeing as Kevin Loch isn't in jail, probably not. Q: Will my stuff be there? A: It's probable unless you broke the law or posted a lot of porn. Q: What about my account? A: Also, probable, unless you again, posted a lot of porn or broke the law. Q: When will this come back? A: I can't put a date on it. Chances are the government of the USA has yanked account information and went through the hard drive, collecting evidence. The government should in theory have given back the okay files. If he's just deleting them himself, it might take a while. Q: What would change? A: I suppose authentication and automatic deletion of inappropriate things. IF YOU DOUBT ME THERE IS ONE MORE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW! I kept this a secret for a very VERY long time. One day I was able to get past the 403 on Majhost and instead of down for maintenance it showed the home page. However when I tried to log back in it showed a 403 forbidden. I didn't want to give anyone else false hopes, so I kept quiet. Seeing what I am seeing in recent times, I'm deciding to say it. It's a shame I couldn't get anyones things, it was probably a hiccup while they were working on the website. It's being redesigned a bit, that's all I could see.
  7. Thread will be set up later, also again, not on this map for multiple reasons. It's way too contested. I don't want to make a rainbow planet for Earth and the new planet.
  8. Awesome to have you onboard.
  9. The sky is the limit, although to be realistic, if you're being attacked halfway across the galaxy, don't expect your entire army to show up immediately. Also Judgemagister, probably neutral or evil
  10. No problem with that, also, the map is now updated. Waiting for FreakOps to place Mezvaraa, and Judgemagister, you may place Kolvartia as well wherever you want, copy the blank planet marker onto the map and place it wherever, just not on top of anything else. Additionally, Judge, place your faction icon and color as well as name under whichever category you want to.
  11. With the end of the assault on Heaven, came many things. The Terran Command Remmnant, Robotnik, and most of Liberalis Terrae retreated off into space. Liberalis conceded defeat in the Asian operating theatre, and has now become Neutral. China has been irradiated and destroyed, although there was very minimal loss of life because of the Xenomechs. The IOT was disbanded and several elements joined the Mechvaraans, and Task Force X. The IOT high commanders Bunny and Antoine joined TFX, while Sally stayed to lead the peacekeeping force. EAGLE forces have also decided to work with the Task Force further. Sonic and Tails are still missing in action, as well as Esdaille (I think Mike and Shiki have a plan for them, as Shiki is doing the Executors in Interstellar). New Teutonburg is starting to explore space. The Axonian Empire suffered damage to Korea from fallout and has mostly retreated to the Ferra system and Axia, although like most of the other factions, are still maintaining a small presence on Earth. Terran Command and Robotnik have suffered moderate-severe losses of forces and equipment, with TC now on the run from TFX and the Mechvaraans (Robotnik has all but vanished and probably wont be appearing immediately, although from what I know, Mike has a plan for him). The Task Force and the Mechvaraans have wrapped up recovery operations on Earth and have placed refugees on Xorg-7 and Kait'hur. TFX is now additionally bolstered by mobians and mechvaraan forces.TFX and the Mechvaraans have pulled out into space, only maintaining small outposts on Earth. America, Canada, Japan, Australia, Indonesia and Papua are now under their own control again, with support from the mechvaraans and the mobian peacekeepers. The Executors were welcomed to stay on Kait'hur in order to plan their next course of action. The Executors, TFX and the Mechvaraan forces have returned to Kait'hur in order to discuss what to do next... Hopefully next season is quicker and a lot more fun for the involved factions.
  12. I know but I do want people to name what they control
  13. Earth and the new planet are purposely not included because of mixed ownership.
  14. Here's what I need so far from everyone (since nobody has posted responses yet) - Planet names/ideas. Also if there are any important planets, or planets that are part of SW history, such as Mezvaraa, that need to be placed, you should place them. - Someone to play as the forming republic government and then some people to play news. I'd prefer multiple faction owners to at least make a news comic at least once in a while, as the news isn't specifically for one network either, it can be biased to any side of the conflict, or no side at all. - Factions that are interested. Update and re-post the map. Also, don't go crazy claiming all the systems. You will stretch yourself thin and open yourself up to attack if you do not maintain your forces and productions of resources and if it is flat out ridiculous I will claim systems for you. Also interstellar is probably going to end up outliving GC3, just a heads up. Not saying that GC3 won't last long but this will somehow or another move on to a different season because of the large scale.
  15. Bumping this to the top, time to rekindle this thread's discussion. I think we need to wait a while now that GC2 has ended for people to get together and to really get excited again. The main issues we encountered: - Everything ended up drawn out and it wasn't much like massive battles from GC1 until near the end. - People were left waiting for response comics, and the altercations were very drawn out. While this is okay in many scenarios, sometimes people just get tired of it and want to move on. - People didn't often listen to each others requests, and acted outside of what they should have in some occasions (I myself was guilty of this a bit during the beginning) - Relating back to that second thing, some people just flat out had to leave or go long times without responses on comics because of real life. However we often didn't find out why they left until after they came back. - Unfinished sprites, aka the lego kit. Okay, that was mostly my fault, and it did hinder people's production of comics. Also, there were people who didn't share their completed sprites. - There sometimes was an obvious lack of planning...such as how the end of this campaign felt very rushed, even though it has been going on for over 2 years. - Majhost died and we ended up getting kicked in the sack. There's some promise it will come back, however, but it hasn't yet. We learned we needed to find more reliable image hosts and to back up our files. Interstellar has it's own discussion topic now too, there's that as well. Anyways, I digress. Discuss. Comments?
  16. Everyone, I want to make a large list of our Majhost account names incase Majhost does come back, and it seems like it is going to eventually. So post your accounts, and any you know of.

  17. We have a decent list, I actually found a few of my things from the wayback machine. Nothing too special but there were some items! Additionally, here is where you can keep up to date with things about the website: http://www.whois.com/whois/majhost.com Seeing as it's been renewed for 2 years in a row yet it hasn't gone back up, means something.
  18. I missed you man. In case you forgot who I was, I was RegularArmyCaptain :3 I can't wait to see the sprites come back.
  19. Agreed. Let's just do this.
  20. I already put that there, updating the list with all other names.
  21. English - Arabic - English one day. Storm fox went to the bar to kick Prime Monsta. Monsta got so angry they got into a fight and causing destruction across the city from the wars Sprite. At the end came capture Freak and melted them. End. New sentence: Mechanox decided to make some brand new Mechs. Unfortunately for Mechanox, Autofox decided to borrow them, and stole his designs! Infuriated, Mechanox called Millboar, who sent the Tau empire after Autofox! Millboar lead the Tau to victory and the plans were secured.
  22. Sylver doesn't come up, but DarkKaiser does. And I saw Electrodan, okay, adding that too.
  23. Also you can always double check on Brickshelf.
