To explain why the site has been down for the last 24hrs.. Well our host was threatened by Microsoft for copyright violation of 4 Viva Pinata screenshots for the Nintendo DS. The email we recieved is in the spoiler below. The DS-Scene network was then taken down, so we removed the images and mailed the host waiting for them to put us back online, which has taken a day. I know you're probably thinking how ridiculous it is of Microsoft to take us down over a couple of screenshots. The funny thing is the screens actually had gamekult watermarks pffft. I never post watermarked images myself, if i can't find a clean image i simply wont post screens. So everyone can blame Homie for this one :p. Anyway we are back online now lol.

So M$ took down the site over some screen shots of a product they made.... (so in essence they took you down for giving them free advertisement...)
