What happened with Digital Press?

Recommended Posts

Back, before I had to quit the hobby due to my life being turned into a mess in around late 2006, Digital Press was a very active website. With a fun chat room on IRC I used to visit a lot. There always seemed to be discussion. I also, had an account here, (This same one!) but was mostly a lurker. I returned later last year / early this year to the hobby now that my life is back on track, and...


Well Digital Press Forums seem super dead. What I understand is, the owners started a brick and mortar store with the same name, and dropped the forum for a bit but then someone else took it up? Or they just run it without moderation or something?


Anyways, I re-settled back here on AtariAge since this place seems super more active than my old stomping grounds of Digital Press.


Basically just wondering what other peoples takes on that is?

It's all there in the forums if you dig about a bit. Basically the brick and mortar guys wanted to kill it, but someone else agreed to maintain it as an archive with a only lightly active forum. Then the bills didn't get paid and it all went down for a minute, but it got put back up basically as archive only at this point. It's a ghost town now. I think it just outlived it's usefulness, like MySpace.
