Something really bad. https://twitter.com/Romhacking_net

RomHacking.net‏ @Romhacking_net 25m25 minutes ago
We would like to thank everyone that helped make http://Romhacking.net a truly welcoming and creative community over the last 12 years.

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the closure of http://Romhacking.net . it has been wonderful 12 years.

I would like to say that RHDN's shutdown means a huge hole has been created, not just by the massive knowledge database that has been lost, but as a central for those interested in romhacking to gather.
Now, it is apparent that the database has been lost (I can't wonder another reason for them giving up). So rebuilding an empty, new site on the same address would at least fix the second problem.

I wish I had saved more tools and documents. Regrets.

About a hundred links I've posted here are links to tools that were on RHDN.

(Scratches head in confusion)

Now someone is saying that tweeter isn't run by nightcrawler. Does anybody know if it is? That tweeter account was created on jan 2017.
Does anyone have personal contact with the admins to really know if the shutdown is official (and hopefully more information)?

I'm trying to get some info from...

irc.synirc.net #romhacking.net
(I'm posting this here, because I keep forgetting the link address ;)

EDIT... I'm not sure. The Twitter account above is not official. Maybe Fake News.

I don't know what to think about it... i mean, there was nothing that was saying the site was going to close, and also, i think (i hope) they have a backup of the hacks and other things. I didn't had time to download everything i wanted of that website... And was waiting for updates of some hacks. If they are back, i think i will have to download to backup things, and the whole community was still working on various projects. What to think about this twitter account, it is so strange, so sudden. I hope it's just a fake twitter account, but if this is real, i hope someone was faster than me to backup everything. I still have many bugfixes and translation patch to download :(

There are several people saying it is indeed a fake account. Hopefully it is just a host problem and it should be back soon.

Yea, I noticed the downtime, too.

That twitter account is indeed not related to romhacking.net.
https://twitter.com/spinner_8/status/842036210407202816

Hope it's going to be back up as soon as possible.

Info provided by The Cutting Room Floor, so it is trustworthy info:
News from Nightcrawler, RHDN owner: https://twitter.com/CuttingRoomWiki/status/842543088815890433

So I don't know what's going on, but at least RHDN should be back. Hopefully nothing was lost. We just don't know 'when' it will be back.

I have an up-to-date copy of the wikitext and HTML of each page on NESdev Wiki, but I lost shell access sometime since the server move in September.
