The main rosebum.com domain has finally expired. http://www.rosebum.com/

Looks like an Indian squatter has taken it and turned it into a fallacious blog. Not sure if I want to laugh or cry. It's definitely for the best, though. RB lingered for far too long.

were trying to restore it. We already put up a RB ut99 Tribute server here 192.223.31.18:7777 We are also trying to find anyone with a forum back up of any kind so that we may restore it and continue to maintain it.

I actually tried to get the domain, but as you said some squatter grabbed it up unfortunately.

Thanks,

I was aware of your possible interest in securing the domain once it became available, and there were weeks after Rosebum collapsed and before it became a blog, weeks where it may have been possible to claim the domain, but I was concerned that if I sent you a public message it might inspire someone else to grab it before you could. Private messaging functionality would have been useful.

Rest assured I followed the auction from beginning to end. The domain was doomed the moment it went up for auction as the design is flawed. The length doesn't extend when you bid, allowing squatters to scoop it in the final moments of the auction without giving you adequate time to outbid. The smartest course was to simply not bid and hope it gets released in the wild. Unfortunately a bidding war started at the end.

Additionally, the price went beyond what I was interested in paying for a sentimental domain name so I let it go. There's always next year. Maybe UT will be launched then and the time will be right for RB's return.

So you decided to continue with the name Rosebum instead of changing it?

I'm assuming you're referring to the plan to name a new community that's separate from RB. That was the original plan since Milk was going to own RB for the indefinite future. Now that he's given it up entirely, resurrecting RB through UT4 is an option. We'll have to see how the winds are blowing once UT4 actually launches.

I want to think UT4 will be ok, but I know it will be at least 2 more years until it's near a release state.
So far there has been a lot wrong with what they've been doing as far as Development goes.

If RB can be rejuvenated I'll be happy. Fun times ahead. For now though, it's not so good. That's just my view on it though.
