Sensible Rescue Mission

quote [ i lost my favourite site a few days got hacked and lost with it was a lot of good friends i made on the net. ]

There's any number of SE "lifeboats" out there

Facebook Group
Sub Reddit

This is the place to post where the refugees are.
As soon as steele gives his blessing we can swoop in and "save" them ;D

Also, there's a lot of orphaned content such as the SE Flickr pool, and Onan knows what all out there.
Steam group?
Minecraft server?
What's out there and can we bring it all together?

SE HTML has now been updated to explain and link to Sensible Endowment.

I would prefure you use the dns name for the MC server.

Is the facebook SE invitation only, for that link only returns "This content is currently unavailable" for me.
cb361 said @ 7:12pm GMT on 26th Feb
It's a private group. I think we need your facebook account, or email address or something to invite you.
papango said @ 4:32am GMT on 2nd Mar
If you PM me your email address I'll invite you into the Facebook group. I think I can do that. If someone else hasn't done it already. It's technically a 'secret group', but everyone is welcome.

Is there any reason that group needs to remain secret? It seems like opening it up might help catch a few more refugees.

I'm not sure, but I think it's so things posted there can only be seen by SE and not show up in your timeline where all your other friends can see. The group shows up in searches and it should be able to be easily found.
HoZay said @ 8:08am GMT on 2nd Mar
Is there anything happening on the facebook site, other than directing folks here?
papango said @ 6:11pm GMT on 2nd Mar
Yeah. People make posts and comment on them and that sort of thing. It's not especially active and it's mostly just chatter and you're not missing much be not being in it. It's not like a clique or anything.

I'd say, if you're on Facebook join in, but it's not worth joining Facebook just to join the SE group.

Interestingly enough, it did not show up in a search for me. I know that once upon a time it did, but now before I was added to the group, I could not find it, and assumed that it had been deleted by FB.
Skuld said @ 5:19pm GMT on 9th Mar
Thanks, cb361 added me, so now if there will be a second (more sudden) SE-apocalypse, I have a safety-net!

Does this mean, as the chosen ones, we get to decide who takes part in the Rapture?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I suspect we're the ones who got left behind.

Arrowhen said @ 6:54pm GMT on 20th Feb
Wait, "as soon as steele gives his blessing"? Were we not supposed to start inviting people yet? Cause... uh... I didn't tell anyone, of course, and anyone who says I did is a Commie mutant traitor!
-_- said @ 7:01pm GMT on 20th Feb
Yeah, I don't know for sure that we need to hold off till Monday.
But... steele can tell us Monday if it was necessary or not ;D
-_- said @ 7:03pm GMT on 20th Feb
Or, of course, people can do whatever they wish .. there's that,/I> option too.

Hmm, double posted.
Arrowhen said @ 7:12pm GMT on 20th Feb
I'd also suggest everyone look thorough their old emails, etc., to see if they have contact info for folks who haven't found their way to one of the refugee stations. I only found one person who wasn't already at Reddit or the FB group, but some of you guys who were involved in more extra-curricular activities than me might have more.
-_- said @ 7:19pm GMT on 20th Feb
+1 Good Idea
lilmookieesquire said @ 7:21pm GMT on 20th Feb
Ya, I had at least one person contact me via the old SE Mafia Google Groups email.

I left a message on the Clan SE message board on KoL, but these days that's only about 2 or 3 people. Most of SE's Loathers have either left the game, or moved on to other clans.
Arrowhen said @ 11:08pm GMT on 20th Feb
Cool, I just notified the SE Minecraft mailing list.

The Kingdom is still going?
Headlessfriar said @ 12:01am GMT on 21st Feb
It actually just got a bunch of major updates. It's very much alive.
sanepride said @ 11:54pm GMT on 20th Feb
Anybody know what happened to the original SE?

I expect Saint Marck will get it fixed any minute now.
Arrowhen said @ 12:14am GMT on 21st Feb
That old place? I haven't thought about them in forever.

On the one hand, good to find this.

On the other hand, so much for getting my life back.
Headlessfriar said @ 12:39am GMT on 21st Feb
Marck hasn't logged into his facebook account in a long time. For all I know, something happened to him and the bills on the original SE finally came due.
buzhidao said @ 12:50am GMT on 21st Feb
ran off with joecam
sanepride said @ 1:02am GMT on 21st Feb
Sounds like as good an explanation as any.
I was thinking DDOS attack from A friend or mrcucumber or some other disgruntled outlier, but that's probably giving them and us too much credit.

hah, wrong thread. i'm just running around making comments randomly to see if there's a threshold for being able to mod comments.
this is the most active i've been on se in a long time.

Was SE really hacked?

Nobody knows. It's all just speculation.

Mistakes were made.

Apparently it was in May of 2003. That's the date on that particular forum post.

Saint_Mark got mad at you. it's all your fault. repent now.

in another hand I think nobody knows (or will ever know) what happened to SE. as said maybe Saint_Mark really disappeared ....

Tried getting in touch via myspace, facebook, and bugmenot. Gave up, checked reddit, and saved myself.

So glad I found you. Despair was setting in as SE continued to fail, day after day. Fortunately I remembered the Reddit association and with a little googling, found my way here.

Wasnt there a Steam Group as well?

Woo, at last! I came here via the post on the Steam group, the first place I thought to check after it became clear that old SE wasn't coming back online.
*hand touching temple, sombre but determined face looking up at 45 degree angle, red-tailed hawk crying in the background* We salute you, old SE.
cb361 said @ 10:17pm GMT on 24th Feb
Yay. I didn't think that post would be useful to anybody.
Tirade said @ 2:16am GMT on 26th Feb
Found the reddit subgroup through a google search, nice to see some of familiar faces.

I really should get around to actually making a reddit account and joining the nerdherd. Feels like I'm the last geek to not have one.
HoZay said @ 5:01pm GMT on 26th Feb
No need for Reddit now. This is more better.
mjteegarden said @ 3:29am GMT on 28th Feb
Quite glad, I am, to find the people exist in another island of the net. And all it took was me cluing up and taking a minute via Google. Oh, the trials and tribulations. :P

Yay for return!

I once was lost but now I'm found...
The seeing part is negotiable.
