Equestria Gaming Down?
Hey guys, it's a little report. I just noticed one of our partners, Equestria Gaming is now down. It's domain isn't actually even renewed.
Does that mean that the site is not maintained anymore? Does that mean we won't get any word from them as well?

There hasn't been any activity at all from EqG for the past few months. What are your guys thoughts about this?
Discuss in the forum post version of this announcement.

Well this was unexpected.
Even if there was no activity, I hoped it would at least be frozen in time or something.
Guess whoever was paying for the domain (maybe the founder?) noticed the lack of activity and decided to pull the plug.

I'm not surprised, to be honest. Was kinda expecting it to go down eventually, it's not like too many sites stay running after they're no longer updated. Or, sites of this type, anyways.

It's too bad, the Lyra's list used to get me kinda hopeful that games could be made in a team. I guess the new call for writers just wasn't enough to help revitalise it. Another part of the fandom lost...

I think it's been effectively dead for a long time. Sad, considering the value of the domain name. I'll miss having a neat reference to stuff other people made. For what it's worth, this place is pretty quiet too.

Sad So sad indeed. Equestria Gaming was the site I found about MLGD, and the first site where I could actually find fan-games from other bronies, also news.

I still hope for a site re-open tho, but I don't find that much of a possibility anymore.

Yeah, I was sad to see it go. I hope they had a backup of some sort.
Hoping it would be a screenshot of the past and all.

Well, I guess that means the torch is passed down to us now when it comes to that then?
Course we're going to need writers and as well as the monthly Lyra list. You think we can pull that off?

Probably. We'll need to advertise the site more for it to work, though.
Don't be sad.
Even if the world does not forgive, I will forgive you.

So please tell me.
What will it take for you, to forgive me?

Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster. Excited to have finally made an account on here. As far as the topic of discussion, I'm surprised no one has mentioned that the site was run by RedEnchilada (http://rainbowdash.net/redenchilada) and he actually posted on his twitter about a week before the site went down that he was well aware of the domain expiring (https://twitter.com/RedEnchilada/status/...5667256320). I haven't checked up on his RDN posts lately, but he hasn't mentioned it again on his twitter page. No idea as to what he's planning on doing with the site now... Shame though, I would frequent EQG quite often.
