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.

    One word... "FUCK !"

    Guys I really wish this were a joke... as I'd hate to see all my hard work and effort go down the drain, however sadly it looks like CSDL, CDG etc will take over as the number one FPS moding community.

    Perhaps we should set up a donation either to tom, or to someone to pay for a small server to back up all of our BEST skins, maps and prefabs etc.. It would be such a waste of talent to see some of this stuff disappear.

    It's a real shame to see it have to come to this but thanks for all you have done for us tom.

    Well I just got my first ripe a few weeks ago.. They never mentioned the site will close... Paying customers should get their moneys worth or get it back. You don't go to McDonalds and order only to have them say, sorry we have no food and then just keep your money.. sorry for bad example. I may have completely read it the wrong way but just my opinion.. I would like to get what was payed for.

    Fingers crossed that it was some lame ass joke..
