Hi guys. I received the same message that you did, Phil.

Only three people sent me their email address at the Syberia forum. I have a couple of others and will be happy to send out an email to all of them if and when you say the word.

Hi,
Nice to see you have joined Gail... :D
I believe but i'm not sure, you can send this new address to your contacts by private e-mail (not PM) in order to stay in touch and it's up to you to tell them to keep this confidential...
i don't want to challenge MC2 in any way at all and i think you'd understand this matter before.
Facing this situation, i don't know how to preserve our sweet community...
Anyway we can imagine that for the moment, each time MC2 sites are down we can continue to discuss here...
it's a DMZ specially dedicated to Syberian lovers !... finally

Fine, what about Still Life forum ?...
It would only take for me 1 or 2 days to make a back-up one...
2 problems :
1- what was the structure ? (the same as for Syberia ?)
2- what was the skin ? (black background and red typing ?) i must say i don't remember clearly...

Pif ;)

Ok... I'll pass on this 'secret' meeting place.

Phil was a moderator at the Still Life forum. Perhaps he knows the format. "Stone" offered to improve the forum there but I don't know if they ever accepted his ideas. He can be found at http://www.adventure-eu.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1...or maybe Phil has his email address? Including the Still Life forum might be a good addition here.

Phil may be a moderator there too... I'm not really sure.

I told you the site would go down sooner or later. It was going to happen anyway.

Nice for you to put up a site, Pifou!

Thank you Pifou :D
And thank you Gail for the e-mail :)
I was also thinking how long the official forum will be open :roll:
I was there just in time to see about possible "back up forum"
It would have been sad thing if we do not have any playground left.

Hugs,

This is a great idea to made this forum Pifou!
I think the MC2's servers won't work forever for syberia and still life forums, especially if they have problem with them!

It's for all microid's games fans a good (semi unique, semi altenative) place to meet each other and discuss about (general and microids) games!

PS: sorry for my english!
PS2: i find this one is more quicker than the official one (well done pifou)!

edit: I just see support parts of the forum, good idea and good work pifou!

finally, I'm here...some health problems :cry:
well, I will send the address of the "new" site to the persons I have their email BUT they will be principally for the french part...

about SL, we could take the red-black colours like the original one, and for the different chapters (if I good remember), there were
1- the game
2- talking about other games
3- technical problems
4- prelude (the on-line game)

but the structure of Syberia is nice too and it's a manner of making a relationship between the 2 games :idea:

I wait for the answers...

i would prefer not being forced to do it, but MC2 attitude didn't let me any choice...
imagine wrote:PS2: i find this one is more quicker than the official one

it's perhaps because database is still small for the moment... wait and see what happens when growing... :wink:

Yes but from an internet search point of view, it is preferable Still Life to be referenced as "Still Life" and not like a sub-forum of Syberia because no one could find it while searching the web...
I'm going to start a new forum project for Still Life and let you know when i will be ready... ok guys ?...

Pifou :wink:

my meaning was "to make the forum with other colours BUT with the same structure than syberia, the same architecture "
sure, SL has not to become a sub folder from syberia 8)
