Server unreachable (updated!)

Post by Ricardo » Tue Sep 01, 2015 5:04 pm

Please read the following very important article: http://samp-funserver.org/news/121-server-unreachable!

Update: please check it again... I've updated the article again and it has some new information about the status of the website and server. Make sure to let everyone know about this.

Well, shit.
I started playing here after Ricardo took over the control of Garsinos Funserver. It was fun to play here, making badass stats was very addictive
and so was making fun of other players, back then. I got kicked out of the community quite fast and some time after creating rainDrops group I got banned for along tine.

When I got back, everything was great again till I got in troubles cause my poor communication skills with other players, I got banned again, eventually for even longer after
doing some bad things to the server generally. When I returned for the 3rd time, I didnt plan to change myself at all and that lead me to being promoted after being very active.

I continued being an active player as an administrator for quite long time, I enjoyed being rich and owning all of the cool properties I ever wanted. I loved creating new
tutorials and other useful threads on the forum which made me most active player on le forum (which I still am!). Then everything stuttered after updates that never came and
the continuos server crashes.

To every player Ive ever said anything bad or offensive in past two years, you probably deserved it. I enjoyed every one of you little pricks trying to get me demoted and
I give both big thumps up to Miracoli for always understanding what type of a person I am.
Its very sad that I have deleted all of my SA-MP screenshots over 5 years, Id upload some great memories here.



Upload the forum database to some free forum for example, so we could still chat around here.
Even though I wasnt active more than few times a month past 8-10 months, I visit the forum every single day.


I wish the forum will remain alive, please.

Man. It's truly shattering to see RFS end up like that.

I have spent more than 4-year here. Honestly enjoying each minute.
I joined the server in April 2011 when I was a 12-year old kid who recently got SAMP and was simply looking for a server to enjoy. The most attractive thing about RFS was it's atmosphere and community. The server had a very chilling atmosphere and a very nice community. I quickly made some friends and started playing frequently.

The most fun times were when I was in NF and the war with rD specifically epicface who was my very first enemy and most hated guy. Which is quite funny because two years later, I would be co-leader of his clan and as much as I hate to admit it, that was a very enjoyable time back then.

Through the years I continued to play and have fun with my good friends here. I learned a lot of things. English, for instance. Which amazes my IRL friends and helps me a lot with studies thanks to RFS.

Now I'm 17. I moved on with life and stopped playing SAMP. But I really want to thank Ricardo and Miracoli for providing us with such an awesome server. A lot of memories flowing in my mind right now. Too much to write. But in all seriousness, thanks to everyone here for one hell of a 4 years ride. Wish everyone a good life and good luck with everything.

#ThankYouRFS

P.S: Please, this forum is a grand archive of all the great memories here. As much as it being the only place of communication. Don't let it vanish. I hope you can come up with something to save it.
I realize now that it will take time.
That the road ahead is long and shrouded in darkness.
It's not a road that will always take me where I wish to go.
And I doubt I'll live to see its end.
But I will travel down it nontheless.
For at my side walks hope

Thanks for the kind words guys. It really matters a lot to me and that is 100% true.

Sunlight & Joe: I really don't know how to keep the forums accessible. The problem is that I don't want to be paying for the domain name and hostnig (€21,75 per year). I can home host the website, but that also means that I still have to maintain, moderate and update something that is practically dead. :( Also the domain name must be kept and that costs €12,09 a year.

Leaving the forum running in read only mode is possible, but that also doesn't make much sense either, even though I do admit that it's nice to keep it around. Sigh... I'm not sure what to do about it.

Dont you have any friend who owns a website himself? Or your school, perhaps?
It could be www.hopedepot.org/trash/rfsforum or whatever, people would still visit and chat around.

Also its so awesome for me to sometimes read my first posts or w/e.

Well, I've had such a fantastic time on this server for the past few years.
Out of all the servers I encountered, none come close to this.
I am really sad to see the server closing down.

Honestly, I really am lost for words here. I just could not believe this is actually happening.
I know I've been quite a blithering idiot on many occasions, and with that, I sincerely apologise for my actions.

On a final note, I would like to thank everyone, and I really do mean everyone, for making my SA:MP gaming experience truly unforgettable.

Hopefully, I will see you all again in the near future :)
