Glad to have you aboard now Darkkefka, was wondering when you'd finally find your way over here. xD

As for why ID is gone, the short version is the site was getting overrun with bots so badly that registration itself had to be disabled just to stop it. (We're talking literal hundreds of bots showing up every day.)

So in response to the decaying state of ID and the absence of the site's owner Archael, Newgame Plus was created as a sort of sister site to host some of the hacks from ID that were still being actively developed so the community could actually grow with new members. (Hacks like Brave New World for example.)
And it was also made with a broader vision in mind of being the place to host "Well designed hacks" rather than simply "Challenging Hacks" that ID was more aimed toward. (Though you can still make hard hacks here, it's just not the sole focus of this site.)

A few months pass, ID is still being watched over by the admins, and lo and behold Archael himself shows up out of nowhere...And then immediately kicks both Advent (Kyrios) and Ninjasdf from their admin positions and proceeds to blame them for ID being dead because of shutting down registration, and basically says the bots weren't that big of a deal and they should have been able to just comb through and delete them manually. (And just overall being a jerk to those who would have been willing to work with him had he not acted up this way.)
So he reactivates registration, and ID pretty quickly gains over a hundred new members in less than 5 minutes...Members who were not shy about letting everyone know what their favorite sports team is or what their preferred brand of cigarette was or where to get "male enhancement" pills. (Spoilers, they were all bots.)
So between that and Archael basically taking a dump on some of his most loyal community members, not to mention he came in with illusions of grandeur basically saying "Your lord and savior has returned, I will fix all the problems" but no one bought it, the community backed him into a corner and called him out on his trash, forcing him to apologize to save face at all.
But the damage was already done at this point, and most of the main members of the community jumped ship entirely to NG+, leaving Archael with his sinking ship that was ID.

And then ID was just gone.
There isn't really much to say at this point beyond speculation, did Archael delete ID just to save face from his own misgivings, or maybe he did it because he saw that ID was dead now and this was his way of acknowledging that NG+ is the one to carry the torch now? (I mean I doubt it, but it sure makes for good poetry.)
But whatever his reasons, one things for sure, the biggest loss from ID disappearing so suddenly is the storm that happened when Archael returned, we can only tell tales of the fireworks that flew that day as the community saw him for the garbage he really was, any respect people may have had for him before he showed up was completely gone by that point.

And that about sums up what happened to ID

Man, great to see you here, DK. I'd love a demo of v9, whether I'd have to start over or not when the full hack is ready. It always has been, and always will be worth the wait.
