I tried to download a few venues but keep getting a blank page with the web address www.fishsim.rus why is this, I have also tried to locate the web site with no success. Has the venue been hijacked!.

I just did a search for it too and only 1 hit that says it's offline. I can't find the forums for it either. I'm beginning to wonder if it's a temporary thing or if it's gone altogether. :blink:

Dave, the down loader is working OK I think it is a small percentage of venues that will not download and the following page (2) is one that is displayed after trying to download the venue 'Cicely Mill' which is just one of many that I created a few years ago.

Try using SD's Downloader.

>>>SD's DOWNLOADER<<<

Jase was thinking of closing fishsim.net. Maybe he's closed his mediafire account?

Thanks for the reply Dave, I believe that Jase is closing his account on the 18th March and that is why I have been downloading venues as I was not sure if when he closes his account the downloader will also disappear, I have almost downloaded every available venue which is over 2000 with about 8% not available, these titles are listed but when attempting to download, different pages are displayed stating that the particular venue has been removed or the account closed etc. There appear to be all of the Swedish simmer Beki that have gone missing and I remember him posting on here saying that he was closing his website so perhaps other creators have requested that their venues be removed when leaving the forum.

I just posted a link but I know he's committed to FS.

Just to clarify, Jase asked for feedback as to whether fishsim.net was still being used, he did not say he was closing it unless the feedback suggested that it wasn't being used.
As it turned out, the feedback showed that it was still being used and the interest in FS2 still does exist.

So, please be careful what you post, people have the habit of taking discussions as decisions and rumours as fact. :)

Good news that Jase is renewing fishsim.net SD, I posted my comment based on the following post and took it in good faith, however I for one shall not comment on any future similar posts.

Hi everyone.
Just incase Jase doesnt post this here, he has posted this on Facebook:
---------
Is there still interest in fishsim.net ? If not I will let it lapse on the 24th March 2018 which is the next renewal date. It will be 17 years since I created it and in that time it has had more than 21 million visitors, but recent years things have been a lot quieter and i'm too old and past it now for a version 3. It's been a blast though and i've made many friends and had so many laughs. Thank you !

Sorry Algy, I wasn't meaning to have a dig at you, please feel free to express your views, that's what a forum is all about.
I just meant that the wording of Jase's post has been misinterpreted.

If you read it carefully, he is saying that he would not renew if the interest was no longer there.

Quote: "Is there still interest in fishsim.net ? If not I will let it lapse..."

As you can see, he was seeking some feedback, the decision was not already made.
Once he saw the feedback, then he made the decision to renew.

Hope that helps.

All the best.
