    Re: Hongfire offline?

    I was wondering what happened to HongFire. It was working for me for a while then once I went back onto the site, it redirected me to some garbage video "trends" web page. I still have a tab open from the last visit on "List of Free & English community made RPGs". Now I can't afford to close the tab.

    Re: Hongfire offline?

    Looking for a history (wanted to check the old IP hongfire.com was resolving to) I found something interesting.
    Last snapshot of Hongfire: https://web.archive.org/web/20190829...ire.com/forum/
    First snapshot of redirect soc***n.me/trends: https://web.archive.org/web/20191009042221/hongfire.com
    It's redirecting from hongfire.com/ to hongfire.com/forum/ and then redirecting to the site we were not expecting.
    Then checking domain registration Updated Date: 2019-02-24T12:05:08.14Z
    There was no update between the site switching.
    So that leads me to two possible options:
    1. Hongfire switched to a refer to prevent some lawyer to knock down his doors.
    2. Someone hacked the forum and managed to manipulate the .htaccess file or similar (setting the refer as maintenance site or so). This theory is supported by the fact that even thumb URI are redirected, but http://www.hongfire.com/forum/admincp/ (default URI for AdminCP of vBulletin) is responding with 403 forbidden which indicates there is still a vBulletin setup on that web space.

    Does someone remember the provider Hongfire was hosted on? Current IP WHOIS shows "zColo" in Colorado which sounds like a plausible data centre to host your own or rented hardware on.

    So I wouldn't be surprised if Hongfire pops the site back by removing the redirect.

    @Solonimbus Now that you mention that, I can't believe Hongfire straight up died before that game came out... The forum literally died of old age waiting for the game to be finished... R.I.P Musoft thread! 2013 (or was it even longer?) to 2019.

    Seems like they are finally gone. Sad to see it die, but when they removed all the downlaods and torrents a lot of people (including myself) left.

    Re: Hongfire offline?

    Is it gone for good? Its really saddening that its gone. There a lot of good memories there for me and it was really active back then too.

    I dunno why the admins and mods just left without even saying anything.

    It's truly crazy how it just up and died like a silent fart. I'll miss it especially with illusion games.

    I agree with De Kus, physically HF may reside on some server in well condition. If only admin appear here and just pass database to volunteers.
