    If this is the wrong place to post this, or posting this is not allowed, I apologize. I have just recently started using homebrew, and after many of my games were lost due to a break-in (my wii was intact!) I started using wiiso to replace them. however it seems to be comepletely down for over a week now, and someone said it was gone and wouldn't elaborate. so what happened?

    I don't think you're allowed to talk about it even when it's down. People here got in trouble about another two, in which at least one of them is back up.

    In the for now, learn how to torrent. Google uTorrent, it's just the client, don't ask for anymore.

    But that sucks hard if that happened. I just pirate because I don't want to pay for my games. [​IMG] I knew about "that site" but never really used it since I don't download many Wii games anymore.

    This thread should be locked or deleted by a mod for discussion like this is taboo on these forums.

    Why? There was no rom or iso or whatever request. So no need to close. Just a simple question: What happened to *removed*? I've seen worse things on release discussions here....(check MadWorld...). Guess no one who "needs" that page would ask. I don't, but I'm still interested in what went wrong. Never ordered at Lik-Sang, wanted to know bout their closing, too. So: News, anyone? [​IMG]

    does the website in question have roms hosted on it? if yes, then you are breaking the rules.

    If you define linking isos to different download websites hosting then yes, but as I recall, a better term for something like this is redirecting.

    I think IMO *removed* is a redirectory and forum infusion based website.

    but nevertheless, it is a site that allows and directs people to download illegal game isos. Just this basic fact is enough to make it a taboo topic on gbatemp.

    "Sorry for corrupting the world. Wasn't the intention! Hope no one was sent DDLs while searching for the site. Would be a burden to hard to take for me....ppl makin' their own decisions and stuff...anyway, I go with the masses: If I was a mod, this thread would be so muthafarkin' closed right now... So stop posting! Honestly: Who gives a fuck (bout W****.***), of course!)" would be the only adequate thing here. So stop. Posting. Go. Watching.

    Probably due to legal reasons.
    Why are we talking about it here, though, I understand it's the Off-Topic section but it's like...a different video game related forum that happens to be illegal.

    To the many of the people who browse on *removed*, the site has been closed ironically until further investigations/repairs.

    Yes and Nope. I took that quote into a sensable theory and plus I changed some things to make the quote more fluent. If it happened once it chances are the same thing will happen again. (Like Haklab and Appulo)

    It does make sense that a DoS would occur.
