A CHALLENGER APPEARS

Postby JaMbo87 » Sun Jun 24, 2018 9:57 am

Hey Guys!

Big announcement today!

I've decided to step down from TiZ. I first started the site when I was around 19 years old, back in the dcisozone days - I would never have thought it would still be going until I was in my 30s! It's been a privilege watching the community start off with just a handful of us and grow to where it is now...

Which is why I couldn't just let this aging old site stagnate and put such a good thing to an end - a completely new version has been created and handed to the guys who have been passionately moderating this community for years.

Say hello to Retro Zone!

Code: Select all
https://retrozone.co/


In short, it's the much needed update that TiZ was waiting for.

Over the next few weeks they will find their groove, sift for bugs and get used to running the servers. Then, when they are ready we will redirect the traffic from here to them - though this could take some time

Whats next?

Well, one thing you guys always said was that if this site were to go, you would always want the community to stick around. Though it's a little different now as there will be a community over there - I will still stick to my word and create something

I've had a vision of a social network with the ideals of the way the old internet used to be and try to capture that old feel - Online aliases, no censorship, no personal data and no data collection.

Would love to hear any ideas you guys would have for it, Just shoot me a PM!

Big thanks to all of you!
Until next time!

Absolute legend man thank you, found this place before the merge and loved xboxisozone, used it every day after I by chance got an x2 chipped xbox from cash converters, have not left the place since, this site helped get me into tech and modding and the community has helped me so much over the years, thanks to that love and hobby, I now work full time as a technician, I attribute a lot of the experience I had to get the job, from the resources this website has given (and a keen passion of course)

Thanks again man <3

It´s sad to see the site go the way of the Dodo, but I guess it was a long way coming. Personally I love the fact that the site had the old look and feel to it, as someone who grew up with the web since the mid 90`s I still can´t get used to the new, modern design of most websites just because they have to make them look better on Smartphones. I remember the days when some websites would tell for wich screen resolution they where optimized for.

Guess I got a bit Off-Topic here.

I wish you the best for the future and I love your idea of a old-school Social Network.

Thank you for creating the old zone-network and merging them to this awesome Site. I really hope that the new one can live up to the legacy.

The New Site, hopefully, we continue from here,
It's a bit bare bones at moment in the forum, so get over to
retrozone.co and sign up using your TiZ Nick :)

TiZ ain't dead, just evolving :)

Wow. Just wow. I don't know what to feel; I've been hanging around here for years, well before I actually joined, and it's going to be weird just packing up and leaving. Is this actually replacing the zone completely?

All uploads to TiZ will cease at some point soon.
and yes it is replacing TiZ. Hopefully, it'll be a lot faster and less buggy.

The team have a lot of work to do shifting data from TiZ and setting up the forums.
.oO(Wonder if Curb's been sleep yet?)

and remember - ALL YOUR GAMES BELONG TO US ! (Well the new site anyway)
So it it's on TiZ, It'll be on RZ :)

Eventually, it will be a long while yet though :) Needs a smooth transition

yeah you'll have to re-register we couldn't copy he database over n get it working right, but everyone gets a clean slate :)

If your a regular, please use your TiZ nicks as it's gonna get confusing else lol
but at end of the day, it's your choice.

It is a WIP but it's new and for you lot :)

Expect a few bugs n gremlins to start with, but just let me, pinky or curb know about issues you encounter. Don't expect instant results, it's all new learning curve for us all !
