Neither can I, but I'm sure it'll be up before too long.

Yeah, monthly donations ARE required. The site's admin has to donate a chunk of cash every month out of pocket to keep the thing running.

You on the other hand have the option to donate a small portion of money to support the gigs and gigs of content made available to you. If you miss a month here or there it's fine, you can still use the service. But the site's admin has to pay every month or the whole thing comes crashing down. All so that you can have a place to download bootlegs. So why is it that you're complaining that he asks for a little help from time to time?
For as much as some people claim to hate what Star Wars has become, they sure seem incapable of shutting up about it.

Agreed, Rouser. So many netizens are so used to getting things for free, they can't even conceive of the hidden costs involved. Odd behavior, indeed.
MeBeJedi: Sadly, I believe the prequels are beyond repair.
JediRandy: They're certainly beyond any repair you're capable of making.


MeBeJedi: You aren't one of us.
Go-Mer-Tonic: I can't say I find that very disappointing.


JediRandy: I won't suck as much as a fan edit.

VERY, VERY true.

I really do think alot of the sites bandwidth is used up by folks that are looking for SW stuff. SO please help these coming. I feel loyal to MYSPLEEN and Xaiver and myself have donated.

I agree also, I have donated and don't mind to do so, when I can, if it means I can get treasures that are not going to be released. I can't put a price tag on that. If I have $5 extra this month or $50 I WILL donate to keep it going.

I have downloaded 20 to 30 torrents (OOP Items), thats about $400 worth of DVDs. Well worth $5 to $20 a month. If everbody that downloads donates that much every month we can keep this site up and keep getting the torrents. When I downloaded "EditDroid" SW there was 44 leechers at one time on it. That is enough right there at $5 a piece to keep it going, and there are way more people on the site than that.

SO COME ON PEOPLE DONATE!!!!!!!!!!

I donated... don't mind helping either... it just sucks that only a minor portion of the downloaders help support his costs. I wonder sometimes if it is the star wars torrent fans who contribute the bulk of the donations as many here have donated.

Hmmmm... you know what? That's an interesting point... sadly, you may be right.

Does anyone know anything about when MySpleen will be back? If it's going to be awhile, is there anyway someone with the EditDroid ESB could upload it on another tracker? Or does anyone know if its up anywhere else?

I donated to MySpleen, and the site says to PM someone and explain that you donated. But it doen't actually say WHO to PM there. Who should I PM?

MYSPLEEN seems to be back up!
I can't help but notice how empty I felt without it
the thought of it never coming back was scary

Let's all keep donating
and most importantly keep seeding!

Should this make us feel safer or less so?

Geek.com is reporting that LokiTorrents was NOT shutdown by the MPAA, but in fact scamed it's users for thousands of dollars then ran with the money.

Sigh.

The ESB by editdroid is excellent, not quite as sharp as the star wars disk but still the best of the ESB bootlegs.

ESB bootlegs always pale in comparison to the other two.

Probably b/c there's more white color tones, smoke, constant movement that makes digitizing much more difficult.

But as far as ESB transfers go, the Editdroid is very good.
