    Not sure, The latest owner has neglected the site since obtaining it late 2017. May not even own the site anymore?
    I recently emailed him making him aware (awaiting response), but i have not talked to him in 6 months or more. I was not happy with the neglect and some of the BS there and he continues to neglect it appears, (see ps4hax.net the neglect is there as well by same owner) but i am curious what is up

    This guy is driving me nuts... It's about time, that the site get's back into a scener's hand... A person who actually cares about the scene and not just cash...

    Speaking of their overall neglect, do you know if psx-scene's forum software is likely very outdated? It has looked the same ever since many moons ago, including some long-running bugs.
    Even if it goes back up, I don't feel too good about using it if it's just asking to be breached again.

    I got a reply from the owner.
    Well, actually it was completely blank reply (even lazy there), but i went to psx-scene.com.
    It had a database error this time (not a blank page), i reloaded the site and is up..

    So i would advise get what you can if you want something. Because who knows if there is long term issues or not. We do know its badly neglected.

    I regged on PSX-Scene last week but I can't seem to make any posts or even read any while logged in. I had to log out just to view what was there.

    That is something new...
    From I remember new post has to be review in some way by moderator.
    Unfortunately I don't know how many active mod are still out there on that site?
    Some post appears after quite long time...
    It is especially annoying for users w have got under 10 post.

    You have this problem e.g. to read while you're logged in via mobile phone, PC...

    BTW FMCB 1.966 not FBCM 1.966 in signature.

    I was the last active moderator their and have not logged in to SCENE in over 2 months because new owners do not want to take care of the bugs in forum.
    So moderated posts are way behind got tired of fighting multi posters and bugs together so just stopped taking care of something I get no real help with and no money while new owner do's nothing and gets payed.

    When I had PS2 I loved there when it was called ps2-scene, the community was strong and the owner and moderators were dedicated. What a shame, so that's why the community abandoned the site these days though. The site that was hated and considered evil because it wanted profit was called ps2nfo if a remember exactly. Is ps2nfo something else today, did it change to another name / domain?

    Edit: I found my answer on reddit, here it is the history of ps2nfo names along these years: ps2ownz, ps2nfo, ps3new, ps4news and finally psxhax.com

    Wasn't aware of this, but it looks like PSX-SCENE is going the same way Assembler Games is?

    - Owner MIA
    - Moderation team gone
    - New accounts to be manually approved by owner
    - Again, owner MIA

    Never cool to see historical scene sites disappear or die thanks to negligence.

    I can only add that PSX-Scene It is quite good place of knowledge (to read), especially about PS2.
    Some stuff (apps, themes, diagrams, etc.) are still out there...
    Unfortunately as well there are currently many issues on it (on that site)...

    So... there was even an idea to change FMCB logo a bit.

    That's another good point, A lot of tools and logos point to psx-scene -- which appears to be largely dead or non-functional.

    At least it's not HTTP 4XX or 5XX yet. But that's likely only a matter of time
