Happy New Year and welcome to 2012, as a new year dawns and we all shake of the dust of the last year we here at The Radiated Society look forward to a fresh start and all the possibilities the future have in store for us all.

This site has been in a slow death spiral for the last two or so years. The last news post was on February 9th of 2011, almost a year ago. Unfortunately this is a sign of the times, the smaller/older Fallout Fan sites are slowly falling away into obscurity and or oblivion, never to be seen again. We have managed to keep the site out of the nonexistence of oblivion thus far and hope to for a few more years to come.

We have tried to keep the community alive, but as we all move on to new and exciting things, as our schedules become more hectic and full and as we find less time to spend here the site has slowly spun down to stagnation and inactivity. The Community is barley alive with only about 6-7 active members.

Over the past few years plans to revamp the site, to update its look and back end to include additional functionality and new features have all been planned and even worked on (very extensively in some cases). Even redirecting the url straight to the forums to help hide the unused front page (which has not been implemented as of this post). Unfortunately these plans have never been implemented only adding to the appearance of death to the site.

As this new year begins it's hard to imagine that things will ever return to the activity levels of three or four years ago. We all hope that if you are reading this that you stop in on the forums and join in our conversations. New members are always welcome!

However realizing that all good things must come to an end we hold out hope that we can push off that end for another few years and ask you to join us, it's not just about Fallout in our Forum, in fact it's mostly just some friends hanging out sharing stories and having fun, so please feel free to join in. Never fear however we still know our Fallout, and enjoy many other games as well.

The Radiated Society Preservation Committee was established to house all the old memories of the community. With user activity as low as it's been this area has now expanded and grown. Let's all work to create many more memories to file away in the Committee's Halls.

Thank you to all our members over the years for contributing to our community, for sharing your good and bad times and allowing us to share in your lives. To any future members we look forward to your arrival!

We hope you have a safe, productive and exciting 2012 and that you will join in with us for the ride.

Sad, really.

Post Moar!!!

This is the first forum I've joined and I have gotten a lot of joy out of it. I would hate to see it go just yet.

This was the second forum I joined (the first being Mike's Sims Forum [That is not the name, I do not remember the name]). I like it here.

This was either the 2nd or 3rd. I can't remember.
V52 was the first, that's where I met Scotty the Great, Altra, and ..... Rad. Man I miss that Scot's type.

The first one that I joined was Radioactive Rob's Fallout Emporium. That one died out many, many years ago. Back then, ICQ was still the big thing.

And I'll most likely keep the doors open here as long as some people are coming by and posting.

This was my first forum. Kandrakar.com was my second, but the first one to close. Think Beth was my third.

For the server, about $10/month. I could probably find a cheaper option out there besides phpwebhosting, but I like what they offer and how flexible they can be.

I don't remember how much it was for the domain; if I recall correctly, I renewed it spring of last year for another three.

TRS is sucking you dry for $120 a year. You should stop paying. :mrgreen:

Take that, you!

Even if I stopped paying right away, it might take a while before them to actually shut down the site. Last time the credit card I had on file expired, I didn't realize it until about half-way through the month. They never took down the site, or charged any kind of late fee.
