Levels-4-You
L4Y: For Sale
Posted Jun 28th, 01:02pm by Garner
Modified Jun 28th, 01:03pm by Garner
Anyone that knows me, knows this has been on the cards for around 3 years.

Anyone that doesn't know me, "hi"

I'm Roger (aka Garner), the guy that owns/runs the Levels-4-You website. This place was setup as a level/mod hosting site for various PC games - I think its done pretty well for what started out as a hobby.

Over the last nine and a half years we've served up 125 million pages and 4.5 million downloads. There's 152 thousand of you registered and a mere handful of dedicated volunteer staff members.

The site was my life for its first 5 years, however then I got a job doing the same thing from 9-5, 5 days a week and my spare time and enthusiasm for L4Y naturally went out the window. These days I barely even remember you guys are here...

To this end, L4Y has been for sale for the past 3-4 months. Staff members were told back then and I know it leaked out to some of you as I got a couple of PM's. Now however its going public as I want everyone to know the site may not be online for much longer. Quite simply I have a life that needs my time (and to a lesser extent my money lol) instead of a website I no longer have any interest in.

I'm ignoring the joker that offered US$ 60 for the site

http://www.sedo.com/search/details.php4?domain=levels4you.com

Should the site not sell, all the files will be zipped up and made available to any other site owner that would wish to take over all the files. I'd rather the community is kept together however as you all love each other so much

Out of curiosity, how much space does the entire site (dbs, code, files, etc.) take up?
I map stuff. Sometimes.

G,

Didnt you have 2? An extra file server?

What is the size of all our files?


Second server was decommissioned 3-4 months ago.
Approximately 150Gb. About 400Gb including backups.

You know what they say, "All good things..." Thanks to Roger for making available, without charge, his website for us gamers to download files, and connect with others. I'm hopeful that someone will pick it up and run with it, but if not, life goes on. Cheers, Roger!

I double what the amper said. I doubt that I would have still be playing this game (Red Faction) for as long as I have if it wasn't for Garner, this site and most of the community that supports this site and the games supported by this site.
StuPidaso "you people" make the make this game fun too.

Thats next to nothing if someone buys the site and has a terrabyte or two dedicated home server computer could handle it, but what I really want to know what is the monthly bandwidth?
