ok, here it is, we need 500 euros to get the domain name back, if ANYONE is interested in contributing then say so in the post and i will get back to you about getting some cash into a paypal account.

I really want to get this back and other like minded people have expressed an interest in getting the domain sorted as well.

We cant just let the name die and hope it can be as strong as before.
So please put yourt hand in your pocket and help us out.


What do you think

I appreciate where brooky is coming from on this but as I said to the guy earlier. For those of us who had to move on going back will never be the same, regardless of the BarrysWorld name.

I'd rather barrysworld.com redirected to freddyshouse.com so people who were not there at the move, know we are here now.. however I have no spare cash due to various pc breakdowns so sorry.. :(

Surely it only costs that much because the bast who bought it knows it has emotional value? I say let him sit with it, and let him realise beyond us few merry nerdlings, there's really sweet F.A. he can do with it, rather than paying him money for being a shiteburger.

Yeah, maybe Ted could bribe him with a free family membership?
:kissit:

Let it go, is what I say. Make more history and let future punks wrangle over some-other shit name that you just made up on the spot.

I say collect the cash, write to the guy explaining the fund-raising and the whole debate/debacle, then withdraw the offer. Say you've decided to spend the money on something else worthwhile instead.


And buy a new PC called...


:p

Offer him £20. "What else are you going to do with it?" you then say.

The actual price is 1000 Euros, but i have another person (who wants to remain anonymous) paying the other 500 Euros, i am prepared to put in 100 Euros so we only need 400.

If you cant be arsed or bothered about this then so be it, i am only trying to save a domain name that once mean alot in the world of online gaming in Europe (if not worldwide).


Its up to you lot.

It's not about not being arsed, I think it's out and out extortion from this guy. What right does he have to own it, sell it, and make obscene profit from it? A 1000 Euro paycheck to reward him for taking what was never rightfully his?

The panel decided that the domain was rightfully his so he can legally sell it.

I am not bothered about anything else apart from getting the domain back for use by gamers for gamers

i am glad that people have come forward and donated the funds so that we can make this happen

I'm glad we have it back. The main reason I'd give for having it back is not sentimental or anything, it's simply that I would cringe if I, one day, went to barrysworld.com and found that it link to some crappy porn site*.

* A good porn site would be fine :)

If we could get the domain back and point it to FreddysHouse instead of someone buying it and using it for evil means then lets do it?

But the name BarrysWorld is a chapter in history and FreddysHouse is the future. I doubt very much Ted and Deebs would change back to BarrysWorld.

But pointing BW at FH. Game on :)

just curious, if the the purchase of the domain goes ahead, who does it get registered to?.

if you'd have asked me to donate money to get it back during the good old days, i would've done it with no hesitations, but seeing how well he community has come back together (albeit, without the gameservers :() its shown me that its just a name. If i'd have said that 4 years ago i'd have gone and hanged myself right about now :)

and as dams said, what the hell is he going to do with it otherwise? dont think he can make more than 1000 euros out of it :)

Lets get the domain back in the hands of the community 1st and then we will worry about who its registered to, all i can say at the moment is that it will be in "safe" hands.

I am negotiating the sale so i suppose it will be in my name to start with, but after that who knows.
