Anime Addventure gone?

Postby Dumbledork » Fri Jun 17, 2016 2:08 pm

Tried to check for new stuff, but I only got this message

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator at to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Since there haven't been any real updates in months I wouldn't be surprised if someone had simply pulled the plug.
And that's the bottom line 'cause Dumbledork said so.

Definetly not a "site is gone" message at least. The site server is clearly there, but something has messed it up.

My first guess would be that admin tried to update the server software and something went wrong.

Since there haven't been any real updates in months I wouldn't be surprised if someone had simply pulled the plug.


Wasn´t that because of some weird bug about chapter numbers? They fixed it twice(at least) already as i read it, but apparently couldn´t get rid of it completely.

Anyway, i don´t really know anything beyond what little i´ve read due to following Pusakronu´s Dungeon Keeper Ami.

Actually, just the other day... someone uploaded 17 episodes of additional content of the Dungeon Keeper thread, however, they were really not new, they were uploaded because they found them in Internet Archive of the old Maximum Addventure rival site.

Actually, there have been some updates in the last two months. It's just that there aren't more than two or three per week, lately. I haven't checked more than monthly, myself, due to there being few extensions on the threads I was following. It's not like it was in 2005-2008 when there were several hundred updates per week.
Some people work to achieve peace and harmony.
I'm not one of them.

I was checking it regularly still... the last updates I am aware of of any marginal impact was someone had uploaded 17 episodes of Dungeon Keeper from the old and long defunct Maximum Addventure to the thread on Anime Addventure.

Most of the other recent updates were to stuff I don't track.

And Kestral has only written Naruto episodes the last few years, so there was nothing interesting for me.

Still not back up. So I guess the site's really gone.

As long as you´re getting an error message from the server, the site isn´t GONE.


There was a post last week or so on a forum about the primary mod trying to fix it but having trouble.

While site owner is having medical issues and may not be available(and apparently haven´t handled the site for years anyway so probably doesn´t have a clue how to fix anything even if he´s around right now).

In short, the site is inaccessible, and it´s a big questionmark how long it will remain so, with some risk that it could be a permanent loss if the mod can´t figure out how to fix it. At least that´s what i got from the discussion i read the other day.

Yeah, saw that as well on TFF. I do know someone has messed with it off and on, as a few times instead of the message the screen is completely blank, but no error or timeout like it tried to load, but there was nothing actually loaded.

On a related note. Adult Fan Fiction ORG changed its category links, but the site links and direct story links were unchanged. I discovered this three days ago and fixed my links yesterday. There was no announcement on the main page I saw.

Well, that´s a little hopeful at least then. Though in the thread i read, someone also had looked at statistics for the site, and that was rather on the sad side of things, 10k chapter posts in the 2nd year, then constant decline down to around 300-400 last 3 years.

Oh and by the way, Pusakuronu´s Dungeon Keeper Ami is now posted completely on the SufficientVelocity forum, and it seems s/he will post further chapters there as well.

A pity, as I do not feel a forum site is the best location for a addventure type story.

That´s the thing though, all stories that have been good on the site are essentially NOT "addventure format".
DKA, No Tendo etc... They´re basically linearly preplanned and written by a single person or a small(same) number of people.

Combined with how difficult it sometimes is to read or even find stories there, well DKA was the only reason i started reading there at all.

I went poking in the browser cache some days ago as I quite often do before wiping it – and noted that every request returned the same error, including the one for favicon, which the Anime Addventure does have. I’m going to guess that someone or something trashed the document path by either scratching over the correct path in the config file or munging the directory structure and not resetting the config file accordingly.

Web archive refuses to show the past because even robots.txt returns the same error!
