Just to let everyone know, TeamXbox (.com) has shutdown because of financial situations. Currently they are closed indefinatly, but there is a possibility that they MIGHT return.

Here's what you see when you try to get there now.


We regret to inform our faithfull viewers that TXB is down at the current time due to an inability to continue to afford our monthly costs. The site is growing faster than the internet economy and we are simply not bringing in enough revenue to make up for the huge growth the site has got. Our site has tripled in traffic over the past 2 months and the increase in bandwidth is more then we can make up for. Since we have started, we have funded this site out of our own money, and we have no more to put in toward the site.

Just tell me where to send a donation.:(

This sucks! I was just on their site a couple of hours ago. :confused:

I am also a TeamXbox refugee. Microsoft should help out with web hosting for sites like TXB and Xboxaddict.

If TBX goes down and all their fans flood this site... then what? No fan site has an unlimited budget for bandwidth. The popularity of the Xbox could cripple fan sites.

ACK!!

Ok, The TeamXbox staff is suggesting that you email Microsoft at:

feedback@xbox.com

and tell them that you love the Xbox and Xbox.com and that TeamXbox is gone and that MS should help them etc.

I'am a refugee... too.. I'am really sad... Loved the gang on this site.. :(

I Hope they come back sometime soon... i would love to see Novembre 15 on TXB...

Milkman Dan

Oh well. Hopefully they'll be back soon, Xbox Addict isnt' bad from the little I've seen so far. Thanks for hosting us displaced message board addicts ;)

I can't believe it's gone.

I really hope they get back on their feet. And I really hope that MS will take them under their wing and give them support. With MS behind them we won't have to worry of these things happening.

TXB is dead, Long live the new King Xboxaddict!!

10-19-2001, 02:59 PM
I just sent my email out. Suggesting that Microsoft needs to use some of that $500 million war chest to bail sites like teamxbox and help out sites like xboxaddict.

FordTang
10-19-2001, 03:06 PM
The first thing when I got the message on the website was go to Xbox.com and write to them asking them to help TeamXbox. I really hope they listen.

Remember people, just rally behind TeamXbox and MS will have to listen.

So the email is feedback@xbox.com

And don't forget to put down http://www.teamxbox.com and shockwaves email. His email is shockwave@teamxbox.com

Please help TeamXbox, they need it the most now.

The TXB forums were the best so far this forum is the only one that comes close to TXB. Lets just hope that X-addict is as good with the news.

I came from teamxbox also. I have visited here several times but never visisted the forums. Kinda sucks though since I was visiting that site since last year. I went by the same name there as here.

Xmun
10-19-2001, 04:07 PM
I've never heard of TXB?
Were they any good? :p


On a more serious note folks does anyone have any contact info for the staff at TXB?

I want to get in touch with 'em to see if I can help out.

Xmun
10-19-2001, 04:16 PM
They have been posting quite a bit over at the IGN boards.

I really feel like a goof for not keeping in touch with some of the fine folk over at TXB outside of the board itself.

It's like suddenly losing hundreds of freinds in a single day.
Well at least there are a few of us here.

I feel so bad that Teamxbox is closing. I just wish they gave us more notice that teamxbox.com is going down. I also think they have done an unbelievable job of running that site. I also think its crazy that they have been running the site out of their own pockets. only TRUE Xbox fans will do that I've been a member of the site for over a year. I will try to do everything I could to get the site running agin. This is the worst Friday in the world. *cries*

Best Regards,

A lot. Just think of it this way, there is about 3-4 people that chip in monthly for the website, bart, shock+serenity and sol and they are having a hard time keeping up with the montly bills. Bills keep jacking up due to the fact that people just can't get enough of TXB, which means we are constantly upgrading servers ($$$).

Can some of you guys from the TXB boards answer a little fever question for me? There is not a lot of info on these boards.


Are the Texans in Fever franchise mode?


Thanks in advance for any info. I miss the information you could quickly get in the TXB boards.

I'm another TXB refugee. It's nice to hear some familiar voices...makes me smile. TXB did a great job of sustaining my Xbox enthusiasm, my positive feelings about the Xbox, the launch, its future, the community building around it...and I didn't like the idea of heading into the launch "alone," so to speak. It's great that the site will be back up. I think everyone ought to donate something, whatever they can spare, even if it's just five or ten bucks. We certainly owe it to them, for all the community and fun they've made possible.
