As of a week or so ago Weebly decided to take my website down and delete my account without no prior warning. I contacted them and asked why and all I got in an answer was "I broke their ToS rule(s)'.. after 8 years or so of the website being used daily. They would NOT tell me which rules, or would not give me a chance to rectify whatever it was that they deemed rule breaking and just literally banned & deleted my account.

This has really made me not want to write anymore guides for games OR even create a new website so as of now I will NOT be actively writing guides or anything anymore, I really DO apologise but having 8/9 years of my time/hard work/life erased in an instant without NO prior warning or asking me to make corrections so it was back within the ToS has really disheartened me greatly.

Good luck with future game releases guys, I will pop back every now and then to see what's going on but that's about it now, thanks for all you've done.

It hurts me to read this. I had your site as a reference one when it comes to rpgs, along with kurisu's blog. This is such a dick move from Weebly. I can't fathom what kind of rules could your site be infringing for they to take such drastic measures, really. This is why I don't upload any site in this kind of hosting services, you never know when they'll do things like this. I want to thank you for all these years of taking care of the site and updating it with contents. I'm gonna miss it for sure :(

PD: also another very important site for PCEngine rpg fans was lost a few months ago: Brothers Duomazov. It had lots of reviews of PCE rpgs.

My sympathies to the OP. There's an Archive.org capture of the site as recently as January 2019:

https://web.archive.org/web/20190125160 ... eebly.com/

At least the content is still available somewhere (barring any updates since January 25) if you ever wanted to start over.

Sorry to hear they did that to you. I know many people found your site helpful. Thanks for running it for all these years.

Sorry to hear about your site.
Do you have a backup of your content?

It looks like the site's back up? Or am I confused? This is it, right?

yes.. it's back up but i'm not sure for how long.. I requested that they allow the site to be published for a short time so I could DL a copy of the site. I wasn't even aware they had done this until i checked here late last night, I had no email from Weebly saying they allowed this and for me to head there to DL my site, which btw took 6 hours for 1.8gb of data. In ANY case.. I have now a copy of it but am very reluctant to put it up on any other website that has the same type of usage as Weebly, i believe WIX does but not 100% sure. As stated in OP i'm really disheartened to even bother at this time now with a chance it could happen again.

Thanks for the heads up on the website being active.
