Hello!

Post by xbc97 » September 21st, 2010, 12:51 pm

Hey!

I found this site looking for some good DOS games to try out, and found the forum. I don't know if the forum is dead, but hey, might as well post!

I like retro games, and am collecting several retro consoles. Retro PC games are just as fun, and a forum to talk about it just suits my interests.

So, hope the forum is still alive, and hi!

The forum is as alive as its ever been! Which is not all that alive.

We average 1.15 posts per day and have some regulars. Invite everyone you know to the site and we'll all have a great time talking about classic games!
Today entirely the maniac there is no excuse with the article.

I can probably get about two people on here.

Is it kinda empty because people don't like retro games? Odd...

I'll try and give it some advertisement, and I could probably attract a good 20 people if they take the time to look at it. It could be more, could be less, though...

Oh they do, it's just that the forum policy discourages a certain popular clique often found on DOS games sites - the kind that don't really remember the Software Creations BBS, or even Happypuppy/Gamesdomain... or have that popular yet illogical 'abandonware is everything old now free' judgment.

Really? The only forum policies that I know about are "no spam", and "post, vote, or private message within 30 days of registering or I'll delete ya". If there's something about my forum policy that discourages registration/posting, I'd definitely like to hear more about that.

Or are you talking about the site's policy of only hosting legal games?
