The way Lemon does it is/was perfect!
Yeah I'm glad to find out now that it is there, but it does not have the same warmth and accessibility as the lemon comments and ratings.

yeah, I've tried to comment positively to encourage folks about all this. We the dedicated fans are sick to the stomach at having lost a national treasure. It will come back as guys are working on it. I know it only takes 24 hours at most to update a DNS server to get stuff recognised, but the lemon site may be GBs in size and it takes time to get all that transfered I guess.

Having the domain name 'down' is a great sign as it means the deal is almost complete.

I think this is a good sign as it makes us appreciate a great website. All too often (myself included) we take these websites for granted. I for one plan on making some donations to both eab and lemon for no other reason than that they stay around. ��

Latest news from TNT:

And another update.

From TNT:

"And now I have access to the new host! Lemon64 seems to be working perfectly, Lemon Amiga needs some fixing. After I've checked everything sites are published but require a password. It takes maybe a day while some trusted people do even more testing. After that... Lemon64 and Lemon Amiga are alive again.

Cheers,
TNT"

Does anyone know what this 'published' rubbish is all about?

When I upload files to my website they are there immediately for anyone to see if they know the URL, so what does 'publish' or 'publishing' actually accomplish?


Oh and it's great to see that Lemon will be returning shortly

I imagine that they want to make sure the new server(s) doesn't immediately die when unleashed to the public, which in something as popular as the Lemon sites is entirely a possibility.

I miss lemon very much. Always when I found an interesting game in HOL, the first thing is I look at magazines ratings through AMR and then I continue to Lemonamiga to browse screenshots (which is the feature that I miss a lot in HOL) and read user comments and gamers ratings. I am used to use this HOL - Lemon symbiosis for overall overview and it is something that Lore can not replace atm.

Aww, really good news that Lemon is coming back. Been a bit lost without it Not sure what will happen with the Berzerk round of the competition, but would be a shame to lose it. Maybe shift it to next month instead?

i miss Lemon Amiga

i do hope that all this talk about them returning does prove to be true. i'd hate to build up hope just to have it shattered by the harsh reality.

Hiya guys,
Final news from TNT:
"Final setup is done, Kim will now point domain names to the new IP. After that it should not take long until we can open sites for real.
Moderators are on the short list of testers, in case Kim needs more people testing the sites.
Cheers,
TNT"

Just some more new rumours. We have some moderators of Lemonamiga hanging around here as well and I haven't seen one single statement by them yet.

I'll just wait and hope they'll come back.

btw: F**k Fakebook

I am a moderator of Lemon Amiga and I have no idea what is going on, I have no contact with Kim, TNT or anyone else who may be working on this. This does not mean this is all "rumours" or that there are people not contacting them to ask how it's going. Why are people so desperate to be negative all the time?

Thanks for that invaluable contribution.
