    It's been down for about a week, us folks in discord noticed the DNS was renewed, so someone's paying some of hte bills, but the forums are KIA.

    Hard to say, nothing was reported.

    Domain was recently renewed, but looks like their DNS is not pointing anywhere, so they've essentially fallen off the internet. I think I read they're self hosting a physical server, so getting it back online might not be as straightforward as filling out a couple of DNS fields.

    [edit]: Looks like it went down sometime on or after June 17.

    Someone forgot to pay the electric bill? Also, who the f*** self-hosts on metal anymore? Seriously?!?

    3D Gladiators had an update on this. Server move was interrupted by a medical emergency.

    Hope their server admin gets better soon.

    I hate to say it, but at this stage perhaps it would be better to close the site now. 3D art sites aren't exactly that high in traffic and being down for nearly a month is most likely a death knell. Such a pity too. F3D, despite having a x286 server, had some really good content.

    Have to assume it's gone forever to be honest. If it's been 6 months

    I also think that there is nothing more, too bad!

    I heard there may be a Discord server somewhere, but I have zero information on it, since I don't really know anyone from F3D.

    To be honest, I only noticed it was gone because I thought it was weird when I didn't get the annual birthday cards from there and SFM. :lol:

    It looks like Bob's photography website is in the same boat. I know he went through some rough times, so I really hope it's just him prioritizing his time and resources and not something worse.

    He is on the 3d scifi renders facebook group, you could reach out to him there and ask maybe.
