So I've been on here for a short while, and I feel like this site is older than what any of the dates on here tell me. Mostly a lot of mods being uploaded in recent years but being made way back. It's like the site didn't exist before 2013.
Was there maybe a change of server or something? I tried to find some info about it but haven't had luck here on the forums. Maybe there is some thread which I've just missed, I dunno. Can anyone tell me the full story?

I could bore you with that, but long story short MAFIA's community atrophied over the years and our site never changed much, so, knock on wood, the site was deserted by about 2010.

Then, the perpetually absent webmaster (...don't ask) forgot to renew the domain and the host deleted the site. Later, a guy who worked on the site provided a CMS backup. No database though, so what you see here is a vandalized, zombie copy of the site as it appeared in 2005. The corpse is moving, but the brains are long gone. If you get my drift.

The site's origins date from 2002.

My post might not really be of use, but... man, all the posts, pictures, eventually even mods, all gone? Because someone forgot to pay the bills? Well, I guess even the real mafia isn't that cruel and will give you somewhat of a warning and won't immediately send a kill squad to your place. What?

There once was a German mafia game fanpage, called "das pokerzimmer" (the poker room) It seems to have disappeared some years ago without a warning or explanation...

However, it is good to see that the posts are getting more and more every time I pass by to have a look.

Greetings from Vienna! Farewell

Oh oh. The hosting. Not domain. I wasn't there; my kind was not welcome. That's my excuse for the bad memory!

Thanks for fixing the front page, Chris. Bye! Salute
