Karoshi Corporation forum offline

In April 2005, Karoshi Corporation launched a forum at ProBoards in order to receive gamers' feedback and to help new developers. It resulted in an active discussion board with many active users and developers, mostly from Spain. Unfortunately the policy of ProBoards not to admit non-english forums to their servers forced the forum to move to a nwe location.

On this new location, kindly donated by superdwarf, the sexond Karoshi form grew even further (to more than 2.500 posts!), helping old and new developers to improve their skills, directly resulting in the development of new MSX games, some of which have been released as entries in the MSXdev'05 game contest held at Robsy's MSX Workshop.

Unfortunately superdwarf have decided to close down their server due to the lack of visitors, taking the Karoshi forum down in the process. The board admins have nod decided whether or not a third Karoshi forum will arise in the future, but are always interested in offers where a potential future Karoshi forum (coded in PHP) can be hosted.

This is sad news, so shortly after MSXdev'05 closing down. I hope you'll find a new server. Unfortunately the MRC can't offer free web hosting, but our MSX forum might be of some relief to those who are eager to start or continue discussions...

it seems the number of moves of the Karoshi forum will overtake the number of moves MRC had since the PHP site started :/

BiFi - still in Germany, but at a cheaper location with better back-up options, much higher specs and a nicer datacenter. However, cost-reduction is the most important factor...
