It would appear as though it's not hosted on the same server as ZMD.

The person running the forums is referred to as "Edman," who posted the following on January 10th of this year:

"Hello everyone! I finally managed to get a forum up and running, so we can hopefully enjoy ourselves more on this site. I'm Edman, and I'm the webmaster of this ROM archive / site. If you've sent an email to the address that was listed on the main site before, I was the one replying.

So anyway, enjoy yourselves"

So apparently there have been some new developments, but no one is mentioning them... :> That leaves me with a few questions that I doubt are going to be answered, as I've posed at least one of them to Swampgas with no reply:

- who owns the site?
- what are they planning on doing with it?
- why are the wwwthreads boards constantly being broken when there's a perfectly good vBulletin board on the roms.zophar.net domain that simply hasn't been mentioned? Shouldn't the boards point to the more active forum instead?
- why the secrecy about who owns the site in the first place? Every time something goes wrong here the answer seems to be "It's not my site any more," but whose site it -is- remains to be seen. The only person who knows isn't talking. :>

Thank you for saying so...I waited for a while to see what would happen if I moved the thread to Talk of the Town to get it more attention, was starting to think I was the only one that had a lot of questions about this place ;>

Nope, not at all. I'm very interested.

I've been wondering a lot of this same stuff as well, it kind of pisses me off. I guess I didn't say much because I didn't think I'd get an answer, but it surely would be nice if someone would...enlighten us.

I seriously doubt that a straight answer will be provided here any time soon, I'd suggest anyone that's looking for one register for the "other" boards (as they're working better at the moment anyway) and ask Edman about it directly. :>

To many users there, I like the hometown atmosphere here myself. Besides according to the userlist most of the people there signed up and never even post or post just once. I sorted it by posts and even though there are 1019 pages of members "30569 people" by page 11 and on till page 1019 it's members with 0 messages posted. Check it out.

There seems to be a lot of complaining and then people telling the complainers to shutup about ROM downloads. Is it legal to download PSX roms now? I only ask since I've been off the internet so long. Second question is could this be a honey pot as they call them. I mean as in a setup by some game company or thier lawyers like the RIAA of music and then they take down the IP's of all downloaders and fine them $3000 per game or settle out of court for some fine that is still huge?

If it's still not legal to download roms yet I think I'll stay clear of that place for a while just to see what happens.
