Has it been closed down?

Looks like it's gone, yup. Needed to check a script on it yesterday and noticed it wasn't on the list. Despite the fact it's probably the only server I rarely frequent... again I hope no one bothers paying for it again. We need to stop doing that ****.

I was under the assumption Stefan had opened it and that nobody had to purchase it. I can only see negative effects from it closing down. Developers now have nowhere to practice or even start learning...

Testbed was a player-run thing, and people have attempted to convinced Stefan to keep it up but it always comes down to the players to pitch in and pay for it to stay up. It shouldn't have ever been like that, so when scripters start disappearing(and they already are) and there are no more to fill in the shoes of those who leave because there's no place to learn, then maybe Stefan will get the message.

Can't believe it's gone... i guess we're left to beg for testing space on random people's servers.

Anyone wanna help me in hosting my project? Just 1 script, about 100 images.

I don't know who started it, but twinny paid the bills most recently.

Well, we can complain forever about how it really should be a community thing, but I don't think that it's likely to be that way anytime soon.

I'd be willing to chip in if others are too. Twenty bucks apiece from five or six people would be sufficient. If Twinny is the person looking after it, I don't mind trusting him with the responsibility of making the official transaction.


Now more than ever is a great time to tap into using the server for experimentation, teaching others, and improving open-source tools for the benefit of the community.

I don't see why it should be a problem to open up testbed without anyone paying for it. If Stefan is wondering why his game is going to ****, this is part of it. Developers have nowhere to come from

Testbed kind of sucked, servers weren't really meant to support so many developers on the same server. Without moderation it also resulted in a lot of issues of players uploading abusive/malicious scripts and annoying other people who tried to use it.

I personally would like to see rent-able 'micro' instances that only a few people can log-on and limited to only staff so people can get their feet wet.

I loved the testbed concept, just the other day I was talking to a player on Era who has advanced knowledge of a bunch of different coding languages but wanted to learn gs2, think this would of been a perfect place for him to go to harness some resources and pick it up.

It wasn't the best by any means, but it was pretty much the only thing most of us had available.

I think a better place would be an offline editor that supports GS2.
