c64.sk is dead

Hi everybody. C64.sk was 20 years on 20th of may 2021. I closed it few days before "the big day". If I didn't, I would forget to do it, so I did it all because out of sudden inspiration.

C64.sk was slowly dying for years already, and I think it's good it's now closed. I seriously think there was nothing that could resurrect it. CSDB is perfectly functional as far as documenting activities of C64 scene is concerned, anyone who wants, can follow the scene just by watching CSDB. Of course C64 scene isn't only about releases, it's about life outside the computers. It's about interaction with living people, it's about communication and stuff, but for that, c64.sk didn't have any special function that could follow it. Important note: ignore the last post at c64.sk, I seriously don't feel like doing anything right now, I'm happy being hibernated, scene-wise.

I wish I could say, that I created this thread to get some attention and consolation from all my fellow sceners. No, I didn't not. I just had couple of beers and I made some gfx stuff for my client and took break to check CSDB, and then answered some stupid post at lemon64 forums and then I recalled that there is something like c64.sk. And then I thought it might be a good idea to write some rant here. So I do.

I don't care, really. I think everything is ok, great, or at least as good as it gets. Seriously. I love you everybody. Do what you love to do, have fun.

See you on some party, or in cyberspace.

Peace!

;-)

CreaMD, you did hell of a work maintaining this website through all those years and keeping scene spirit alive! Your SID compo was one of a kind and I miss it a lot.
Well done and thanks!

Yes, I must cheer in and thank CreamD for giving us such a great c64 website in the early 20xx-years. I remember being really critical towards csdb when it appeared, thinking "Why does this odd database try to be some c64 news site, while there's only ONE true news website for our beloved machine?" :)

Well, time changed a little, I'd say. But the importance of c64.sk, especially for its time, will stay forever - and I'm sure this is valid for most (if not all) c64 peeps out there!

Some 10 years ago C64.sk was THE site for me to get an overview on upcoming events to plan the party year, so thanks!

Oh man c64.sk in the early 2000... Living in a boarding school pretending to do schoolwork on the PC in the school library :D Storing .d64s to diskette and bring to my room. That xe1541 cable transferred so much stuff found through c64.sk...

End of an era, sorry to see it go. Hope this isn’t an indication that the c64 scene in general is cooling off.

Thanks CreaMD for the work. c64.sk has been the start page of my browsers for many years. I will always remember it fondly.
See you on Forever or some other party mate!

c64.sk was the center and main news site for the c64 scene for a long time, I was there from the very early days.
It had its time, hard to see it die but it will always have a special place in my heart, thanks creamd fpr all the years of caring for it.
