I wonder how long MatthewDratt will keep haloce3.com running as an alternative for this kind of stuff? I can't help but wonder if he realizes what he volunteered for as there is a cost for keeping it running for the foreseeable future. It costs more than just money, it costs time!

That may be a tad extreme, but it the next upload will probably be quite some time from now.

The owner of this cite is Dennis. I am sure if you politely message him he will gladly give you an answer.

There's also other people talking about creating replacements for HM's submissions and uploads. Many people already have copies of the current HM downloads repository, as has been posted in other threads.

Dennis does poke his head in fairly frequently still, it's very nice of him to keep tabs on the community and I'm sure he still has a moderate interest in it. However as was mentioned in the OP the last update was 03/10/2016. That's over 2 years of submissions. That's a ridiculous backlog of work. They don't just get uploaded, they get a brief test. That's opening and verifying that 2 years worth of content isn't inappropriate for a family site, which Dennis has always held important.

It's never getting updated. That's okay, he's done it for over a decade, as a more or less one-man-army as far as I'm aware. He can't let another community member take over, because (from what I understand) this website is owned by his business, so it would open up liability on a larger scale if any misconduct occurred. If that's not the reason he'll probably post very shortly to correct me. But regardless, it's not getting updated and there's nothing wrong with that. Alternatives now exist, and free file hosting is easier and more stable than before.

Money isn't any problem with the site. The hosting is shared with my main personal websites and the domain renews for free via my current hosting site. The only foreseeable issue is Mediafire. Sites like Mediafire don't tend to hang around terribly long and it's been quite some time that it has been around so who knows since that what I use for the downloads.

But yeah time is the issue. However 3-4 updates/year is still more than HM right now so who knows.
