    Well, when I said "ST is going to be closed either way", I should have said that we are closed already either way. Most of our visitors came for download only, it's been months since we had any downloads up, and for the most part the forum is getting less traffic every day. I don't have any time frame in mind to kill off the forum, depends if people keep posting but when it gets to the point where there is one post a week, probably going to be time to just shut the site down for good. So no need to worry about the site going suddenly and just not coming back anytime soon, or at least so I hope. No matter what happens, there is no going back unless people want to chip in serious money to keep things running, but I do not see that happening. It's not enough to just pay the servers anymore, I really need to make money to pay bills, take girls on dates and all that stuff.

    I'm talking about the pirated software mostly with the booby traps. I do not really download a lot of freeware stuff, so I can't comment on that really, other than stay away from a lot of those free poker freeware games, have had to clean a number of computers with spyware from those.

    Lol, free poker games

    Okay, good to know. And yeah, that'll be a good indicator when to close the site xD Might be around the time Naruto ends, because by then Bleach might be finished as well and that's what most people discuss around here (sadly One Piece isn't discussed as much ).

    I had to register again just for this post.
    I didnīt really visit much, either for the forums or for the downloads, but Iīm sad to see the download section go, even if I understand and accept the reasoning.

    I just wanted to ask if thereīs a torrent of the archived manga somewhere, because I think a lot of them are not available anywhere anymore.

    No, I do not have the money for a server to load the Manga onto and I'd rather not do such a thing from my personal ISP.

    Damn I know I'm late but I'm sad to hear the news. I still remember the stuff going on around the time I joined like it was yesterday. Very understandable considering your situation and a number of other factors playing a role in this. I'm glad this place is still around now even if it won't be for long. I'm going to try to visit however much I can before it finally ends.

    Also wanted to just stop by to say thanks for hosting, supporting, and doing all types of crazy stuff for this site for as long as you have up until now. It's kind of crazy that it's been almost a decade since it started. I'm happy for the memories, friendships I made here, and time spent here both the good and bad. I hope you the best once it's finally over man, you deserve it!

    Better late than never right? Thank you for returning and showing your appreciation, it's always a good feeling to hear such things especially since I invested a great deal of money and time to keep this site going. Memories are forever so hopefully in another decade you will still from time to time think about how great ST was back in the day. I wish you all the best as well.

    I'm sad we closed too, but unless someone is going to start kicking in serious cash, we are done for good. I know you mentioned you will pay up, but unless it's going to be hundreds of dollars each month, ST will simply stay like this for good. I'm happy to hear that you need this site, it's good hearing those words. Thank you for returning and posting in this thread.

    So, a couple months on since the stutdown, how are things?

    I still visit here every so often, and I have to say, I rather miss it, I have good memories of this place.
