CBstuff.nl keep or let go? (in General)


AdminShade January 16 2009 5:24 AM EST

I'm required to renew my contract of hosting CBstuff.nl

I'm now doubting if I'd really want to or need to because I'm not sure if anyone even uses it anymore because of our fine internal CBwiki pages.

Also the CBstuff.nl forum is a mess, with bots flying in like flies on a cow pie. I'm tempted to remove it completely and either leave it like this or start over with a new look.



So please let me know if you have used CBstuff.nl in the last year and if you have used it only once in a while or very frequent.

I have used it last year, but the wiki pages rather make your site outdated...

I'm sorry to say but I'm not using it frequently.

Some items described in your site aren't here but it easy to copy paste them in the wiki pages.

The only thing I really use it for is to see if CB is down or not, and nobody posts that there any more.

I only use to check for downtime as well.

ditto on the downtime status, i would imagine though that the next time i am wondering if the site is down for everyone i will just ask in trivia chat and hope someone sees it.

whatever your decision, thank you shade!

I use your site to point people to the alternate chat client that you host. I also used to use it to host my CB simulator, but that's long out of date.

I also only use it to check if CB is down.

Haven't used in the past year, no. No offense.

Thanks for hosting it, though!

NightStrike: would it be possible to host that alternative Chat Client on the CB server itself? (or a free hosting space?) That way I can safely remove it all together without really harming or hindering anyone really.


I feel that the wiki of CB has greatly surpassed the ideas I once had for hosting CBstuff.nl. Even though the amount of money for the name and for the hosting package isn't much, it still is useless to spend that money every time while it is hardly used.

I will try to collect every bit of data which is useful from my site and store it on my PC. When people need some of it, please let me know where to send it to.

I've kept CBstuff.nl for another year. :)

Aww Shade, you're the sweetest.

Let's use this thing now! =)
