    I vote for calling it TatsumakiSenpukyaku.com.

    You can use my drawing of Ken doing a Tatsu in a dark alley as the logo. It was submitted to the last MS Paint Whisperers game and immediately taken down by mean old @Pertho .

    What's the SRK discord also?

    Which one?

    Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Vanilla forums, as there seems to be bugs that still haven't been fixed yet (like posts remaining in the quick reply field even after the post is made). phpBB is one of the oldest open source php-based forum software, and certainly the most used. I also think that from a customization standpoint, phpBB certainly will have that in spades over Vanilla forums (which I never heard of until SRK started using it). I've used it for the past 5 years on multiple sites and have been very pleased.

    I'm not worried about the migration. The guy I would use is one of the lead developers and has done migrations of this size and complexity so often he can do it in his sleep.

    I'm all for using phpBB if I need to -- whatever works best. I'm currently balls deep in Vanilla, which I chose because it is used by many large companies and has a modern design that makes theming a bit easier than traditional forums. I'll keep playing with it for now but if I keep finding issues I'll take another look at phpBB.

    Tom Cannon put up a poll on Twitter today asking if people serious about keeping the forums around would be willing to give to a Patreon or something of the like.

    As of right now with nearly 1000 votes, the results are 73% no, 27% yes.

    Bad sign for anybody still holding out hope for SRK living past the end of the month.

    I find it mind boggling that the cannons will talk to people on Twitter, Reddit and IRC but not the site they created.

    They want it to die.

    Can we just call it as it is?

    Yeah...lets start talking to the site owner by telling him to eat a dick. That'll totally help.

    I agree.

    Counterpoint:

    It can't kill the forum twice.

    The logo is one thing, but what about the name? Wouldn't calling it SRK bring the same possible legal issues? Last thing we'd wanna see is the new forum getting estabilished, only to get shutdown for an oversight like this.

    I'm a bit clueless about this, just wondering...

    SRK is just a nickname so it doesn't matter. And if anything , Capcom owns the rights to "Shoryuken". What you have to avoid is using content copyrighted by Shoryuken.com, and/or custom images tailored for it.

    How about splitting the board up into different sites if that's easier to maintain for the time being, then just link them all together at some point. General discussion and tech talk can be its own site. Fighting game discussions and Matchmaking can be another sites.

    Or can't we just just donate money every month. How much does it cost to maintain SRK per month, was it 2k?

    ShinShoryuken.com, I think has a better fit.

    Tom's poll ends tomorrow, about 550 on twitter said they'd contribute which is like $4 a month. Hopefully, we will hear more than. I'd like to restructure so 50-100 with $5-10 premium could keep it afloat. There is no reason SRK couldn't run on $500-600 a month.

    Splitting shouldn't really make a big difference, it wold just fragment the community and make more costs. Best to keep stuff together, imo.

    Although its a noble idea if you will to create a new site. I think if SRK dies.. SRK dies. Even if its SRK 2.0 or something. The chances of it 'working' are slim in my eyes.

    Its the brand I think if you will. Its recognizable. Think of street fighter as a whole. Lets be honest here... do you think all street fighter games, have been better than all SNK games? Or any number of games from other companies that have come out? But street fighter lives in the thoughts of the masses because of its legacy, the brand itself.

    And shoryuken.com I think in a way IS a brand as well. The idea of shoryuken.com will always be in the thoughts of I think of most of the FGC even if street fighter is not their favorite game.

    Again I think its a noble idea and cool, but if its not actually shoryuken, I think its gonna take a lot of luck for it to work. Because I think most people would be like you know. Its over dude.. its ok. SRK no doubt is not the site it use to be when I was a kid and first coming here. Hell but STREET FIGHTER is not even street fighter anymore either. But its the idea of it that is still in us that make us come back and give it another shot. Or well at least sometimes.



    Maybe just like arcades its one of those things that hey dude, they just dont exisit anymore. I dont really give a fuck about reddit, discord, twitter. And I think the whole idea of saying there is no need for a general hub of information is complete nonsense. But what are you gonna do?





    And on another note personally id like to know what people are gonna do for big things like EVO and other tournaments. Isnt that always synonymous with SRK as well? I already think the idea that people are just gonna come to SRK for the news is iffy as it is. But id wonder if this is gonna hurt the "EVO" brand if you will as well.

    I don't post here very much, but there's a wealth of information here that you just can't find anywhere else sometimes. I'd really hate to see this place go.

    Is there a way to archive every single thread on SRK if we eventually decide to shut it down? I wonder how large that file would be considering that some threads go back almost 10 years.

    I say forget about starting a new site at such short notice. Lets cover the costs with donations for at least 4 more months. By that time we might figure out how to keep the site running with offering donations.

    I think SRK needs an official Youtube channel, like a fighting game version of IGN.

    Be honest. How many of you even paid attention to the facebook status update feature that Vanilla has? I didn't even realize it was there until it came time to skin it....maybe I shouldn't even bother and just remove it?

    Nah I went on that IRC with the people running the site, the general vibe was "We don't give a fuck about the forums anymore"

    And so far we've had one hosting company offer to host the SRK forums for $120 a month and several experts saying it's fucking crazy for it to be costing 2k a month even with Vanilla.

    Between a group who no longer care about the forums and have either been shockingly inept ar running them at best or who are lying to us at worst and passionate people frenticly putting in work to migrate our community elsewhere and keep it alive I know who to throw my hat in with.

    If you guys want to have SRK forums archived, ask one of the owners to get a database dump of the current forums. Vanilla uses MySQL and there are ways to get full database backups that will be in one (or a few) large files. Then if there was another Vanilla forum setup somewhere, you could just import the database backup. And if Vanilla isn't being used, there could be scripts that are written to make the backup database to whatever schema the new forum is using. That would require a decent amount of work but in theory it should be doable.

    If you can migrate all of that stuff over, you would have all the user accounts and threads instantly in a new forum. But the key is getting that database dump which who knows if that is something they would even allow others to have access to at this point. It seems like the owners don't give a shit so I don't see why they would even care other than being power trippy.

    I think @Sephiroth73003 tried to get it off Mr Wizard on the IRC last night and Mr Wizard was convinced it couldn't be done with Vanilla.

    @bchan009 making a new site can always be done, but migrating current SRK forums or at least the important one GD is limited by time, I'd be happy to contribute what time and money I can. but please give data migration priority, we need to keep the history alive!


    And I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but this thread has me cautiously optimistic, maybe this isn't the end after all.

    Well he's 100% wrong.

    I know computer illiterate people know things are stored in the "cloud" but does he think it's some magical fluffy cloud floating around in the sky that he can't reach or something?

    Mr. Wizard didn't really answer other than say an archive would be created. I reached out to vanilla to see if a database dump would be possible if Tom asked for it or if it would be part of the archive and have not heard back yet.

    I'm a professional full stack developer, if I can get a copy would like to assist some sort of migration. Even if it is in an archive section.

    Welcome to the internet. God help you if you have an opinion.

    I should start keeping written letters in sealed envelopes when I go to tournaments. If i get bodied, I give them one, and when they open it up it says "fuk u"
