Hi guys, this isnt really a question to the admin or nick because lets face it, no one actually runs this site really anymore. So its more a discussion to see if anyone knows more and if admin or nick enlighten us then thats a bonus.

Recently funkypool went down for a few days. Its happened many times before and im sure many expected it to be back. However what was weird about this was it was foreshadowed by a user called pull_life. He messaged another user and said that the site would be ending the day it went down, weeks before it happened.

Granted the site never ended and it came back, but how could he know that this was going to happen without some inside information. I understand he was an ex admin or moderator that had the title removed for bad behaviour and he must still continue that to this day.

How can someone know if the site is going down? Will the site end? Can we few loyal members keep it going. And can we have a overhaul of moderators and admin who actually want to improve the game and keep it going?

Is it an annual thing? Some sorta reset with whatever other programs it uses?
I dunno kirk, but was talkin to a guy on snooker and he reckons it will be gone by 2022 as java will be antiquated by then

But you're right, none of admin or nick give a hoot

Could well be. Still even if so, to predict it to the day shows that have some sort of knowledge on it. It would be great to hear from someone to warn us of the downtime. Some people on here will have been in complete turmoil over the thought of maybe having to venture out.

Yeah iv heard that a few times over the years, I know the Java thing was why nick created a download to be able to play it which is something I have to use now.

If nick or any sort of admin was even able to log on once a year to help make sure its in good hands would be something. I really dont understand why you would create this great game which at one point had a great user base and thrived, to then go traveling living life like a Bruce Wayne carbon copy. The funky hamlet needs its caped crusaders because jokers are taking over the asylum.

people have said for years about java going
there are still millions and millions of java users on their platform
it wont and cant physically go by 2022

always speculation people saying this and that
takes you 20 minutes to read things about Java

people buy premium it will keep
the site paid for, Nick wont make any money
but as long as the site doesn't cost it wont go

everything is always speculation

admin and moderators do need to be sorted
but it wont happen so what's the point in discussing it

jimfaebod
is the only one who comes to mind who could possibly moderate
no one else

that's in my opinion and we all know what opinions are worth

Its a windows ap download for people struggling to get on normally. All you have to do is load the download and it takes you right to the game. No google or anything so you would have to go on that to access messages and forum etc.

I do agree with mostly everything you have said apart from moderators. Although Jim does have the experience of being a moderator I assume he isnt interested anymore to have stepped down. But why not players like yourself or hippesville? Long term members that ultimately want the best for the site. I dont believe in these antiquated views of a player who has been banned not being able to moderate, many of us were younger and dafter years ago. Having a previous ban does not mean you should not be able to moderate. Many past moderators including admin have been corrupt and no better anyway.

Obviously with the title comes responsibly and setting an example but I believe anyone with the right attitude that still plays should be considered. Its only a pool site in the end.

Thanks for the post dude. I dont think there was a conspiracy as such, just weird how someone knew it was going to happen weeks before lol.

Anything doing with this place at all, or are we sadly enduring a long slow funky death?
