    Whatever happened to the forums http://www.r4ds-forums.com? Few days ago it was working, but seems to have gone down. Anyone got a clue?

    I've finally managed to find something out and it seems like the domain name hasn't been renewed -

    http://whois.domaintools.com/r4ds-forums.com


    Not sure what the "Updated" bit means. Maybe payment has been made but not yet gone through or something. Hopefully it'll be back up shortly *crosses fingers*. We'll need to wait for King to sort it out as he's the one who has the necessary access.

    Yeah, I noticed the domain expired too.

    I was worried a domain squatter would poach it...

    I think that it'll be safe as long as it's renewed within 30 days of it expiring. After that, it's free for all.

    Hello fellow R4DS forum people! I did wonder why it had been down... Sure has been down a lot in the last month...

    Has anyone tried contacting King to see what the situation is?

    Yeah, but if the R4DS forums are gone even they are unofficial, the next target for most of the noobs would be here! I already saw enough people there saying where should I buy an R4 and stuff there... If they like Googled R4 forums, you get the R4DS unofficial forums first, then you get a review on GBATemp. But then again, they're noobs that don't know how to search...

    Nobody knows his contact info. And we still want our prizes, that's why we care. [​IMG]

    I could be wrong but I believe the email that is sent out when you get a PM will be one that he can be contacted on.

    Edit: I've found another way to contact him where I know it's him. I've sent him a message & will keep you updated here.

    I can confirm that r4ds-forums.net is the current legit site for the forums.

    Just an FYI for those that care: www.r4ds-forums.com appears to be functional again.

    Thanks.
