FPSB Shutting Down

This may come as a shock to you all but due to the recent economic downturn FPSBanana has been unable to pay its last two server bills and will be forced offline on the 10th of April.

The current slowdown in advertising revenue and subscriptions on the site has meant FPSB has been unable to meet its financial obligations and is currently running up a large debt. We lease about 6 servers for different purposes and simply can't sustain them anymore.

I have worked on FPSB for over 7 years now and have seen it grow from a simple site that covered Counter-Strike news into a massive download repository of FPS content and a thriving development community. For this reason it deeply saddens me to see it all go.

I would like to thank all the admins, moderators and artists who have contributed to the site over the years and made it what it is today. Hopefully you will all be able to find new homes on the Internet.
