I'm confused -are you saying that LL bought it, integrated it and you're bringing it back despite it belonging to LL?



If the IP and all belong to LL, trying a relaunch might not be the wisest thing to do...

Checked out the site and noticed this at the bottom of the page:

Quote:
Copyright Avatars United - "Avatars United" is a trademark of Umbrella Ventures Corporation.
Can't find any information on Umbrella Ventures Corporation. Closest I could find were 2 Umbrella Ventures, LLCs, one in Texas and one in Florida, both having been in existence since 2015.

So either Umbrella Ventures Corporation doesn't exist (legally) or it has been hidden from public perusal. Both of which have the red flags waving.

Yes, of course.

And you're giving away free bridges and such to the early adopters.

Sometimes it's best to just let dead things stay dead.

So from here, I'm off to the drawing board. Thank you WolfEyes for saying what I probably should have told myself from the beginning. I'm off to try something a little more original.

Cheers.
Sounds like an awesome idea -bear in mind it's a crowded field; but if you're willing to work with that I think there's still room for someone to do a VR-based site that is done well (or at least uniquely)


Good luck to you!

Probably part of the International Warez Network.

Like http://warez.cybernothing.org/ or http://warez.bofh.org.uk/

Since OP is busy bringing the cray-cray, here's a link.

Login Avatars United - Social Network

All the post-deletion has me ever so eager to hop right on this.

Well, if there is interest, then I'll keep it up. I dropped Oxwall and went with PHPFox. It's a lot lighter on the mysql calls and a little speedier.

I just want you to stop retro-editing all your posts.



Posting a link you couldn't remove seemed to be the best way to accomplish this.

Like Beezle said, stop editing your posts to say something completely different from the original version. That practice is highly frowned upon in this forum.

Well, now that I've gone and mucked up this whole thread.. sorry.


It was decided, thanks to WolfEyes input, that it should stay dead, and I should have started fresh. So I'm trying to get everything moved to a new domain, which I won't post because it'll just make this thread even worse (and the registrar is still processing the registration anyway).

Nah, go ahead and post when it's live. Just have cat memes handy, or a thick skin, or both.

So she went into the garden to cut a cabbage-leaf to make an apple-pie; and at the same time a great she-bear, coming down the street, pops its head into the shop. What! No Soap? So he died, and she very imprudently married the barber.
