Though being one of the more later member's, I must say it's sad to see one of older Zelda 64 forums closing after being joining this site. I hope flotonic learns a lot though when he goes to UNL.
NOT a Zelda rom hacker anymore. Gone back to Minecraft and Mario World Rom Hacking.

This isn't really one of the "older" Zelda modding sites, as it's only a year or two old as far as I know. That title belongs to ZSO, which opened in 2002, I believe. But I do agree that it will be sad to see Maco shut down.

Ah. Why was ZSO shut down, anyways?

As a side note, I've always liked the simplistic HTML look of older websites. ZSO is a good example of that.

There's been a long history of disagreement of users with ZSO's founder, the site and forums getting hacked, then threats of whatever kind... basically a whole lot of drama, I don't remember the exact details.

And I gotta agree with your side note. That kind of look still exists to some extend today, but with more modern underpinnings like, say, Wordpress or some other sort of CMS.
