Hi,
did anybody know what about planetserver?
The server crashes a couple of years ago and they promised to recover or set up again.
But until now there is only the start screen of the site.
It's a pity to the good ranking i have worked on so hard a long time. :-(

I wish I knew more than that... I remember them having a couple of crashes, and it was after the 2nd one that the forums disappeared... I wonder if they lost the data and that's why they haven't come back online. Has anyone talked to the admin recently?

What I recall is that the forum ran on auto-pilot for a while until they had to change the hosting provider (and they did change the hosting provider instead of letting it expire because their email runs through the server.). The web and mail server were transferred to the new host, the forum (and autohost) was not.

Someone must be alive there because the start page was edited in October I think (removed the link to the disfunctional forum), and because I've got season's greetings from one of the admins. "To: whole address book" probably.

My PlanetsCentral server aims to be a successor to PlanetsServer somehow, but I don't think I'm there yet. Still need many more, reliable players.
