Title: What next ?
Post by: OpenSC on January 17, 2021, 01:47:12 am
 Hello Opensc.ws Visitors!  I am a user on this site from the early 2000s, I've seen a lot of great code, people, and projects come from this site and to be frank, I miss it.... Well I have recently acquired the domain and am in a position to try and "bring it back"........... ofc if there's  interest..   So, my question is, is there still interest in a forums site  for malware research and development ?   are you guys willing to use the site and add content and participate in discussions, projects, and contests?

Do you have any ideas that might be a better fit here?   I an open to any and all suggestions here.  I am willing to dedicate my time, energy and money to try and build this community again to its former glory.........how about you ?

I would say yes. If I were in your position I would base the site around development as a whole, not just malware per se. I do believe there is a large demand for resources relating to malware development though.

I agree, and Im pretty sure if something becomes of it, then it will most likely be coding based and not just rooted in malware.  I'm not real keen on another marketplace tbh.   I'd like to stick the meaning of the site title :)   Markets are cool but there are so many of them there's no need for another, don't you agree?

Welcome wAnchor and thanks for the comment :)  Hope you have a great day !

Fully agree. Let the other sites handle the headache of a marketplace. So this can just focus on development.

Regards.

I'd love to see this site come back, I just don't think there are many people interested in programming anymore tbh

Welcome everyone.  My apologies, I didn't realize there would be this much response, I turned on admin approval because of all the spam, at the time only CB and a few others registered for a couple weeks and I was beginning to think no one besides us old school cats were interested. 

As far as the shitty SMF forum, lol again, sorry I haven't invested shit yet.  I didn't wanna get left with something I've sank money into that was bygone ya know?  But I feel ya lol

I'm not LTT and  Im not Null I'm not root/001/BUNNNN or any of those doods.   I'm just me :)


Hs32-Idir right on my friend, that is what I am thinking.  A malware programming and research platform, I'm not interested in trying to open a market or have folks sell shit here,  I have a job, this is my hobby, and I'd like to get it back to the open community that it was back then.  No drama, no beefs, no bullshit. just friends and code.

Opensource, helping each other learn, having fun, and being innovative.

I just approved over 86 accounts, so lets see what others may have to say now.

Hope you all have a great night !!!

Me personally I am agree and hope to give something, We were always against the loss of OpenSc.
I seeked About LttCoder because he was the only member who really care about the charter and the fundamentals principles.

-Good luck.

Darn, the registration is disabled again. By chance, I had a strange feeling and searched this domain again. I'm glad to see someone else picked up the domain to try to carry on the legacy. OpenSC has always been true to my heart when it came to software development and potentially malicious programming and was one of the last vx-like forums I could freely communicate on. The nostalgia remains with this domain but so does the will to have some forum that isn't dead like rohitab or shutdown by external forces.

I agree with the others that this forum should not have a market or any selling / buying sections and if someone wishes to sell or buy they should risk it elsewhere.

I also agree that we should use a different forum software, I would suggest phpBB / MyBB / fluxBB. For the love of god please don't use discourse, the software used on reverse4you.org or think of using discord or reddit as an alternative social group.

Regarding topics around development, maybe include some features to link GIT / SVN support. Sites like GitHub have some pretty liberal ideologies and disapprove to force removal of malicious source code, so it may be safer to actively use their features for hosting code than on here.
