Hi. I used to be a frequent forum lurker, back when my son & I played Pirates actively 10 years ago. We recently started playing again as a trip down memory lane before he heads off to college. Thanks, Ben, for all your hard work! I love your podcast, too.

Knew I recognized the username! Thank you for the kind words. If your son is really into it, college could be a great opportunity to teach some new players and maybe get a game group going. (board game nights, etc)

This thread already contains everything I know. Contacting them directly is the best way to inquire at this point.

Thats it! The song has been sung! I guess it's "Down to see old Hobb". It's been a pleasure and a privilege to sail with every mothers' son who call themselves Pirate! A finer flag to sail under, there be none! Take everything! Give nothing back! We pilidge, we plunder, we steal, we cheat!
A pirates life for me...




And really bad eggs...

So it seems in trying to save Miniature Trading by copying it; it may have actually sealed its fate. You have a good website and I appreciate all that you've done A7xfanben but all the traffic from this website has moved to your page.

I've just done the best I can with the info that the admin here gave me. Until it potentially goes down, MT is still the place to go for Pirates trades, historical fleets and reviews, and past information on the game via the forum archives. I also still firmly believe that the community forum and other data/discussions/history should be in the hands of the community, so we are not as reliant on a third party.

Yes, you've done an excellent job creating an alternate MT site; but as I understand it, the new owners are no longer going to eliminate MT, right? To use a Pirate analogy, its like everyone got in the life boat because we thought the ship was going down but then nothing happened and everyone is still sitting in the life boat!

Yes, all the info I have has been submitted to this thread. I'm just not interested in typing up forum replies at this point that may get lost in a site shutdown I have absolutely no control over. I have over 6000 posts here so I stand to lose a lot more archived content and post memories/info than just about anyone, so that makes me not want to go through that sort of fear again.

I'm just glad we had time to get in the life boat. Smile I didn't know it could be a "false alarm" until after I did a lot of stuff.
