Default Get rid of roms.zophar.net

We are not affiliated with it and all the links are down anyway. There's still people who come here and thinks and roms.zophar.net is affiliated with Zophar's Domain.

Honestly, I wish I could. It's not up to me though.

I've bitched at Edman about it. Supposedly, roms.zophar.net is what is keeping ZD running (financially), so he isn't making any plans to cut it off any time soon until ZD can make a profit. ;/

Feel free to offer suggestions.

Well, maybe put another sticky post under the "no rom or iso request" one that says in the title : "Not affiliated with roms.zophar.net" or "We do not support roms.zophar.net" or anything like that.

That or a picture of a prairie dog with a muffin on his head.

Why do we still have the no roms rule?
Seems most companies don't even care anymore...

It's been like this since the beginning. It's kept like it since that's what Zophar always wanted.

Lifting the rule would make ZD, well... less "ZD." There are plenty of places to find ROMs nowadays anyway. Besides, I enjoy banning rom begging kiddie n00bs anyway. ;p

Oh i see....didn't mean to rock the boat.
Just figured it would ease the constant rom requests if we had somewhere for to point them...
But i can respect the wish to remain the way it is.

I always thought the 'No ROM requests' rule gave the site an air of respectability. We'll help with emulation, translations, and ROM hacks, but we don't supply ROMs or tell people where to get them. It also helps that since we don't provide or link to any illegal materials, I can link anyone from anywhere else to here for help with their problems since we don't violate any 'warez site' rules. The ROMs sub-domain takes a lot of that away though...
