    Hi all, it's a SaD day :( Due to excessive overload of the BeyondUnreal servers, where SkinCity forums reside, it's been brought to my attention that the smaller forums will be discontinued in a day or two.

    This will not affect SkinCity the site but it does mean that any info held here / posted here will be removed and unretrievable. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Plz feel free to post your reaction or comments here before we bite the dust.

    It's been a pleasure ;)

    Well yea, that bites. This is really the first model/skin forum i've found that has simple basic straight foward tuts and when you ask a question someone tries to actually answer it not just flame b.s. or go into a rant about how "I'm sick of all these n00bs not learning how to use the search blah blah blah."

    Any chance BU+QApete could give SaD a bit more time (1-2 days notice is kinda short) to find a new host, back up and move the forums before deleting them? If not that, how about just folding the Skin City forums into the BuF Unreal dev. modeling & skining forum(which imho is rather lacking atm)? If the latter is pos. it would make for a nice one stop shop for all UTxx model/skin resources right from the main BuF list.

    In any event i'm glad that Skin City will still be around.

    I haven´t heard anything like that.
    I know there are some inactive forums to close , but the SkinCity-Forum isn´t inactive in any way . :)
    On a side note , the BU-Staff is doing great work and support for the hosted sites and I´m sure they aren´t acting like that.
    I´m sure ,if the SkinCity-Forum is on a closinglist or something like that, they would give us enough time to find a solution.

    I mail QAPete to get some info and will inform you all , if it´s true or not.

    Or can it be , it´s April the first.

    They kept the Devatox forum up, but shut down SC. That's just nasty. Why not get rid of the Eon forums, they're redefining inactive.

    I say delete all the post that have not been replied to for over a month. That could save some space.

    Only if something is going to happen.

    :lol: .You got me the first 10 minutes before I realised what date it is.
    My mouth was wide open and the color in my face is gone to a bright white.
    Also I had a big WTF in my face , too.


    Yep , that was a great one. The april fools on the BU-Newspage are always superb.I remember the last , the FBI-one.Countless hours to laugh about.
