    Oh dear, Doom! (Dear Ty!) Are you okay?

    (Perhaps this could fit in the Other Websites section, but I'm not so sure about it. As thus, dropping it on here, it can be moved if desired.)

    While I enjoy Wolf3D and enjoy participating in the community, I'll make it no secret Doom is still easily my favorite. And for that reason, this month has been depressing. Sad

    I don't think many on here (if anyone) will already know what's wrong, so might as well just stick it out. The level archives for Doom on www.gamers.org/pub/idgames/ haven't been updated the entire month - normally they are updated every few days, at least. I've tried contacting the archive maintainer (Ty Halderman) 3 times. No responses. There is a thread on the main Doom site forum (Doomworld) talking about it but everything there is speculation, no signs of any answers. And there was no notice - at all - that this was about to happen. It's getting more depressing by the day, and I hope Ty comes back soon. But I thought I could still go to the off-topic section to vent a bit, maybe by a miracle someone else will have insight. Or just conversate, if nothing else.

    If this really is the end game of a 20-year archiving operation, I wonder just who and what will continue the legacy. There's still ample members in the community to pump out new stuff.

    So to get it straight, this website is like the Wolf3d Dome for Doom? If the old files are still accessible a person can just start their own site with continued updates, right?

    WolfForever, I believe you. Now that I think about it, what other web sites do you recommend for Doom clone and Doom total conversion downloads? There are a lot like HacX, Heretic, Hexen, Quake, Strife, Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Prey, Shadow Warrior, Max Payne, Sin, Unreal, and so on.

    No Doomworld is still running it's the /idgames archive that has stagnated. www.gamers.org/pub/idgames/

    It has been a backbone of Doom level archiving for 21 years. It would bring tears to see it stop. Sad
