Is the site dead?

Hey everyone, I used to play a lot here before I got a busier lifestyle, but I will always consider RU something special. It is the best place to play older games IMO, and I don't like how everything seems to be die so fast these days on the internet, and only these boring social sites are left...
So curiously I wanted to check what's new here, and noticed all the posts are really old, which brought me to this question. What's going on?

Re: Is the site dead?

Most of us are old folk (I'm not old, I'm only 26, but I've been apart of this community for a very, VERY long time) that have our lives taking unfortunate precedent over this site, sadly. I wouldn't necessarily say the site's dead, though. Just right now, there are nearly 147k members, 62 of which are users, the rest being guests. Whether or not those are actual people, is a little bit difficult to tell. This is actually the most amount of people that have ever been on this site!

But it also just goes to show they're more interested in the gaming portion of this site and not so much the forum part. If you notice, a lot of the more active topics are usually by the same people. But we come and go. Right now, there's been a lull, but there are still high scores being set nearly every day. In any case, welcome back to the best place on the web.

Re: Is the site dead?

Thanks for the calming words
I wish the scoremode would work on Android (which is already possible technically)
People seem to be more on their phones these days

Re: Is the site dead?

There definitely doesn't appear to be as many of the high scorers active as perhaps they once were when the site was at its most busy and competitive. That said, I absolutely love playing here - the site is a real credit to its creators and I'm hugely thankful for the moderation work which goes into keeping the system organized and operational. Sorting and approving scores must be a lot of work.

I've discovered so many classics which I was never able to play back in the day and for that alone I'm massively thankful. The high score board is also unique and tremendously motivating for that "one more go" feeling. As Impossible Mission said: Stay awhile, stay forever!"

Re: Is the site dead?

Still my go-to when I don't have a rom. It's unfortunate that the really social players have moved on to other platforms like Twitch and Discord. RU is a fantastic time capsule.

Re: Is the site dead?

I still use RU to play any number of games. Internet Explorer is dedicated to RU on my PC. Much easier than using MAME or hooking up the old systems to these modern TVs. But yeah RU is competing for everyone's time with FB, Steam, TG, Aussie Arcade, Donkey Kong Forum, Twitch, Discord, but maybe not MySpace haha

Someone is still updating / checking scores, and I'm very grateful to them for that! Thanks and cheers!

Re: Is the site dead?

I just wanted to bump up this topic as there hasn't been much movement on updating scores in recent times.

Given the state of the world presently with Covid-19, it's a perfect time to hit the Retro Uprising arcade and make some scores.

If there's anything I can do to assist with maintaining or updating scores, I'm quite willing to learn and help out however I can.

Cheers

Couldn't agree more. While working at home I always make sure to get a few games in while on a break.
