Hey everyone,
after almost twelve years of GDT its sadly time to say goodbye.
For a couple of years now we sadly dont have the time needed to keep the site running as it deserves and finally it caught up with us - so we will be shutting the site down at the end of May (more or less, precise date TBD)
If someone wants some of their data exported and sent - feel free to reach out.
Thanks for a great ride,
Revan

P.S. A farewell torrent from a Prague show couple years back: http://gdtorrent.com/details.php?id=1627


Long version:
We would need to change the code to some more modern and secure standards (do the migration etc), migrate whole technology stack to up to date versions or something more modern (start using https and similar stuff), upgrade servers etc.
Each point is not so bad on its own but combined its a lot of work that we sadly dont have time to do. (funny thing is when we started we didnt have almost any money or knowledge to get the site running and now its the exact opposite)
Right now we are at a point where we had to shut down our email servers so as not to allow spammers to misuse it, so sorry if mail notifications are not working anymore.
We will be keeping the domain for at least a couple of years, so as not to allow some scams or something.
If someone would want to resurrect the site in the future or just want some advice or something - feel free to reach out to us, we would be glad to help to see the site running again in some form or at least see its spiritual successor
I will be doing backups of all files and database data, so if someone wants to have some export of their data sent (pms or something) then feel free to reach out to me in pms here or at: pavel dot jandejsek at gmail dot com (replace dot with . and at with @)

Thanks for the great times and special thanks to all the friends, admins, mods, donators, uploaders, users, everyone,
Have a nice Green Day,
Revan (Paul)
