Dave Posted February 28, 2019 Share Posted February 28, 2019 It's been a very very long time since MWG was online, however I'm excited to announce we're back. For good! The demise of MWG was originally down to an attack on the McCodes server MWG was hosted on. There was then sadly no drive to get it back online, until recently. I'm sure there are a few questions that I hope to address in this post. Ownership I, Dave Macaulay, own the majority of MakeWebGames (including source code, database, domain etc) whilst McCodes (Kunal and Dabomstew) retain a small portion owned by the McCodes company itself. This allows me to have full control over the forums, direction and leadership. New Domain: makewebgames.io We've moved from the original makewebgames.com domain over to our new makewebgames.io domain. This is partly due to someone forgetting to renew the domain before it expired, thanks Kunal! New Software We've ditched the horrendous vBulletin 5 and migrated to IPS (or IPB depending on how old you are). I hope this shows my commitment to reviving the forum as those licences aren't cheap. We've ensured to migrate all existing member accounts and content from the legacy instance over, so all the great content you posted when you were younger is retained for you to laugh at. McCodes & MWG As with the above you have probably assumed that we will retain some ties with McCodes, it was the most popular game engine on this forum and it's the topic with the most posts. Staff If activity on the forum picks up I will be looking to recruit staff members to help run and manage the forum on a day to day basis. Spam When MWG was last live there was a huge spam problem, we were being barraged by spam on a day to day basis and it was a real challenge for the moderation team to keep under control. Luckily the new forum software should enable us to stay spam free for the foreseeable future. If you have any further questions please respond to this post and I'll be glad to answer them!
