Hosts to Dream17: Take them all down
Posted in Dream17 by Squirminator2k at 01/04/07 11:36am CEST

I was hoping this wouldn't happen, but late last night I received an email from Adam, the friend I purchased the webspace for Dream17 from earlier this year, saying that our hosts have taken issue with our collection of ADFs and IPFs. He'd had a similar argument with them about our CD32 ISOs a month ago - first Heart insisted the files were illegal. Then when we were able to provide evidence that Team 17 had authorised the files they still told us that we were in breach of their terms and conditions, although they refused to stipulate which ones.

You might have noticed Dream17 going offline late last night. This is because they demanded we take the files down. Unfortunately we've had to comply.

So that's it, then. Dream17 has lost one of the core elements that make it unique. I've officially had enough. Every time I try to do something for the communities that enjoy this site, I hit a wall. It's become tedious and tiresome, and I no longer wish to have to put up with it.

That's why I'm sad to announce that this will be Dream17's final update. We will no longer be updating the site with information on Team 17's latest games, nor will we be trying to get the files back. So this is what you should do: let Dream17 die.

Just let this old site gather dust. No one can open it; no one will even notice it. Let it become a strange little thing standing on a web server. And over the years, the world will move on and the site will be buried. And if you wanna remember it, then you can do one thing. That's all. One thing: Have a good life. Do that for me, readers. Have a fantastic life.
