    I admit that the second part was never actually said by Valve directly, rather interpreted in a bit / rumored. As for the communication attempt, a bunch of server owners (me included) gathered together in a Discord server and wrote an e-mail to them, addressing our concerns regarding the whole situation.

    Their (or rather one of their employee's response):
    [​IMG]

    This was back in January and I am not quite sure if their entire team shares the above sentiment. The original statement has now been rewritten to be more clear / correct.
    Regarding the "several attempts" part I was referring to the mass of e-mails posted on the HLDS mailing list when each of the changes were made, you should still be able to find an archived version on https://list.valvesoftware.com/hlds_linux and https://list.valvesoftware.com/hlds.

    Thank you for clearing the confusion,
    I hope I didn't come off too harsh, but an email where they outright stated that they are split on it might help us further understand just why things are the way they currently are.

    Either way, my condolences for your current situation and best luck for the future.

    Is there any way or form where someone else can pick it up? The servers I mean?

    Hey, just wanna thank you for giving me the opprotunity to be an admin on JB for some time. It was an honor to serve this community even though some people clearly didn't deserve it. Thank you (and everybody who i've met here) for the great moments i've had here since 2015. I've made a lot of amazing friends and certainly some enemies througout this ride. But It was fun at worst and truely awesome at best.

    Although i've been inactive here for the past few months, seeing this --and then getting flashbacks of the greatest moments i've had-- brought tears to my eyes.

    Good luck everyone and "gg" indeed.

    What a weird day to stumble onto the forum for the first time in 5 years.
    Also Downy still owes me a pair of buds

    Oh, wow. Never thought it would come to this so 'early'.
    The FOG Jailbreak servers were one of, if not, the first servers I've ever played on since my start in late 2016.
    Thank all of you for the year(s) of fun, I'm so very grateful for the warm welcome to TF2. Goodbye.

    Even though I haven't played in a while, it is still sad to see this end.

    I have spent most of my TF2 play time on the servers, be it mario kart, vsh, jb, orange and more, and I always had a lot of fun and even when I got bored of TF2 I then spent way too much time surfing and put even more of my time on the servers :) (I still do not know why I played JB for so long, was bad but so good at the same time)

    Wont make a massive post, so I will just end it with, thank you guys for all the fun times and its sad to see it finally die :(.

    Wow, Somehow It never occured to me that FOG would ever shut down. 4 or 5 years of Coming and going. FOG was always my fallback, I would stay for a while, leave for a while and then come back. Each time seeing how the commuity had changed and reintegrating. Well, I suppose all things must come to an end.

    Thank you everyone for such wonderful times.
    @Spartan@Spartan You probably don't remember me but you were one of the main reasons I stuck with this community, You did a brilliant job managing Jailbreak back in the day.

    Oh and CurryPyro, If you're reading this (which I doubt), I'm sorry.

    Peace, And I hope to see you all at FOG V2. Peace.

    So I've heard;
    This is it, huh.. Never really thought it would come to this.
    For what it's worth it's been a hell of a journey! You know the first time I showed up I was in a very weird place.
    But overtime it shifted to something I was content with. Logging into the trade_rawr server I've made friendships that I cherish to this very day.
    No matter how you get there or where you end up.. human beings have this miraculous gift to make that place.. home.
    And I feel like I owe it to this community. Thinking about this now I feel like I am, once again, in a very weird place.
    But not the kind of in which I would be complaining! It's occasions like these that really make you reflect on the past,
    where it is you're standing in the present and of course - the ambiguity of the future..
    Most recently I've been taking some trips down memory lane.. entering websites I used to pay regular visits to,
    rewatching nostalgic YouTube videos, playing through games I've already completed etc.. This community is no exception!
    So thank you! It's had its ups and down but most definitely ups is what predominates here.
    I wish there was a way to know when you're in the good old days.. before you've actually left them.
    I bid you all farewell and good luck in whatever it is you set your mind on to!
