cheers

https://vanilla.tf/ works for me, idk if its something on your end

edit im retarded, vanillatf2.org

i mean, it's just a blank page right now. according to the whois the domain doesn't expire until 2018-03-23 so either they're having server problems or they're going to let it expire and be done with it.

you could probably check archive.org or google caches if you wanted to

That's not the same thing.

http://vanillatf2.org/ is an ancient competitive TF2 news site.

@OP

there's a google cache from just 20 or so days ago on the match part of the site, so I'm guessin it's just temporarily down?

It's dead, maintenance of ancient wordpress plugins with massive security holes became too much. RIP

GentlemanJonIt's dead, maintenance of ancient wordpress plugins with massive security holes became too much. RIP

so is there no way to recover all the articles and put them somewhere else for safe keeping

was anyone smart enough to do that before taking the site down otherwise

there's a lot of tf2 history on there ... it's bad enough that most of gotfrag & natf2 are lost

Dunno bout the news articles but VanillaTV had a youtube channel so not all of their content is lost. not sure if this is what you were interested in though.

Like GentlemanJon says, I had to take it down due to unpatched security holes in unmaintained plugins. Also lots of deprecated stuff broke after upgrading the machine that hosted it to PHP 7.
The content is safe of course, database backups and files are still there.

Excellent, please work with someone if you have to to get that content somewhere else that is safe whenever you can please, even if it's on an ugly website that just takes you to less graphically good looking articles.

I've been spending the past little while trying to make a well made and sourced "History of North American Highlander" type deal with player interviews and what not, and man, it is unbelievably hard if not impossible to find any content pre-2012, and even quite a bit of the 2012-2013 content is lost. There's so many format deciding events or important matches that just won't ever be seen again. (which on the flip side is weird because it means I've experienced/been apart of things that will just be lost)

I can only imagine how much worse off 6s is on this, where the pre-2012 content is an actually immensely substantial amount in comparison and it's kind of hella sucky that most of GotFrag/NATF2/Leogeos casts/old forced on crits on matches are lost outside of the very rare montage from back then that featured any of that stuff.

i think it's important that competitive TF2's history can be retold best it can, and VanillaTF2 was one of the only old-ish comp news site left so that's why I responded the way I did earlier. I hope you get this stuff somewhere, I'd loooove to go on a nostalgia train back to my era of 6s.

Thanks for the work with VanillaTF2 Arie. I remember the good old days when it was the most active EU TF2 news / gossip site, it would be a real shame if the content wouldn't be available somewhere for nostalgia.
