    You want to re-create the DotA-Allstars Database.

    You've lost it.

    Probably gonna ask for some donations - looks like we'll need a IPB license which runs $175 in addition to whatever hosting I end up with. Kinda scared to use the nadota server because the d-a database is gigantic.

    I actually wanted to talk to you about this spit.

    *Checks Steam*

    Little back story so people are not so confused;

    Since September I have been speaking with Steve (Pendragon) regarding gaining access to the DotA-Allstars.com Forum Database so I could find the contact info of other users who I have been looking for for the last 2 y while discussing this he finally decided its better to just release the whole thing, as of speaking 108 people currently have access to the DB (mostly old DotA-Allstars.com Forum Staff members and TDA members) This DB is limited though all account passwords Personal messages and all the private forums have been removed for security reasons by Pendragon though I personally can gain access to them or those who had the access to said information can probably gain it from pendragon him self.

    Regardless expect to see the forum back up in a read-only format within a year most likely.

    Might as well post the whole email...

    Greetings,

    As many of you know, I have failed to make good on a promise to bring DotA-Allstars.com back online. When taking the site offline I had the best of intentions – and really was only planning on a short offline period while transitioning to servers. It turned out that the transition was much more work than I had originally anticipated and as I had competing priorities in my life at the time it simply fell by the wayside.

    I’ll spare you the details – but I agree that there really isn’t a good excuse for breaking a promise. I’m still not in a position to have the time to bring the site online – but I feel like there’s an incredible amount of value in having the content available so I’ve decided to release a copy of the old forum database.
    My hope is by doing so that some resourceful person out there will restore access to the millions of contributions to dota-allstars.com that were made over the years – preserving our shared history and culture even if for no other purpose than to indulge in nostalgia.
    You can download the database through this link: [redacted]

    If any of you use the database I’d love to hear from you.

    [contact information redacted]

    Thank you all for the memories,
    - Steve “Pendragon Mescon

    99.9% of everything surrounding DotA until 2008 can be found on d-a.

    And once again hes right in a different way. You can bring the D-A database but what about the old D-A site before they "remodeled"? Probably wont ever get to see the flame box (i believe thats what it was called) where fenald called out pen etc. Ohwell that shit was older then time itself anyways and i doubt anyone remembers it
