Help keep poeTV running


And please consider not blocking ads here. They help pay for the server. Pennies at a time. Literally.

I suppose if the server stays up, someone else could register the domain and point it to the same ip.

Someone might also, temporarily, setup an alternative domain or sub domain and point it to the ip.


SolRo - 2017-02-20

Or we could just get wasted and fuck!


simon666 - 2017-02-20

Also, everyone might consider should this place go down getting over to exy's 54evil.com if you haven't yet already.

Also, wasn't there a facebook group?


exy - 2017-02-20

54evil is a quiet graveyard these days, but if poetv disappears, I am willing to put some time into supporting more video-riffic submissions because a world without you sick people sounds horrible.

Also, Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/309452562438606/

*** IF THE DOMAIN EXPIRES ***
And the server is still up, you can add an entry to your hosts file that will allow you to access poetv.com despite being expired.

On Windows open the following file in a text editor C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and add the following lines:

184.107.143.242 poetv.com
184.107.143.242 www.poetv.com

On Linux/Mac edit /etc/hosts and add the above two lines.

So long as the server is up, you can still access the site with the poetv.com domain.


Oscar Wildcat - 2017-02-21

OK, I edited my hosts file as follows.

127.0.0.1 poetv.com

and nothing seems to have changed. All good?


Crab Mentality - 2017-02-20

I've always dreaded this day. I should have bought more wolf urine.


Jet Bin Fever - 2017-02-21

We all should have.


Xenocide - 2017-02-20

Dangit, I know I shouldn't have left Support on a remote island with nothing but a jug of fresh water and a pistol containing a single shot. Even if he gets back alive he'll probably be more interested in elaborate, sexy revenge than in saving PoeTV. Sorry.


Crab Mentality - 2017-02-20

As a lesser POE member, I look forward to dying as an introduction to a more drawn out fight sequence between Support and someone like ROUS or Time Travel Mishap.


simon666 - 2017-02-20

I like turtles.


Bort - 2017-02-20

Bort recommends this strategy:

1) Click the "Donate" button on the front page.

2) Donate some money.

3) Check yer PayPal account and you will see the email address that your payment got sent to.

4) Send an email to that address telling the person (?) there that the domain is gonna expire. Also thank him/her/it for his/xhis/hxsxxrhx work.

5) Or maybe just do steps 1 and 2 because I already took care of 3 and 4.

If I can pony up 10 bucks, so can you shmucks. Do it!


BiggerJ - 2017-02-20

I already know who's currently in charge - Patrick at POE Hosting. I've just emailed him at [email protected]


BiggerJ - 2017-02-22

Oh, and apparently the domain was originally registered on Feb. 22, and was last renewed on Feb. 23 2016 - it could very easily happen annually. Feb. 22 just began in Texas where the domain registrar is. One more day and we'll know for sure.


Tycho - 2017-02-22

Donated my ten, even if it still goes down I owed the place way more. I'm assuming he/she/it/lizard will get a notification of the payment and that speaks better than a harassing email from me.


Bisekrankas - 2017-02-20

Well, guess this is goodbye then, we had a good run, god speed ya'll

SolRo - 2017-02-20

Just don't got to boenews if this place goes dark. It is a silly place.


The Mothership - 2017-02-20

What does this actually mean? After expiry, could one of us not re-register the domain and become the new owner? I know nothing about coding anything, but I'd pay a couple hundred bucks to own or co-own poetv so as to keep things running.


Bort - 2017-02-20

I'm pretty sure people are spazzing out over nothing. Every domain in existence has to be re-registered periodically. Someone noticed that poetv.com needs to be renewed, good catch, and I imagine it's gonna get renewed and all will be well.

FYI, the issue here isn't the Web site itself being destroyed, the issue is what site you go to when you type in www.poetv.com. See, ultimately every Web site on the planet is identified by an IP address, an ugly numeric monstrosity that, in the case of this site, is "184.107.143.242". The Internet would suck if you had to type numbers in to get everywhere, so you can register a name (like "poetv.com") for a year or two or ten and then map it to your Web site. So at issue is whether poetv.com will continue to be mapped to 184.107.143.242.

It would somewhat suck if the domain didn't get renewed. There are people out there waiting for domains to expire so they can snatch them up, and charge a small fortune to the previous owners if they want to buy them back. That happened to poenews.com in the early 2000s, and rather than pay the ransom to get poenews.com back, Chet simply registered poe-news.com instead and we all started using that.


Bort - 2017-02-20

Bort's tips for not getting bitten by domain issues:

1) The administrative / technical contact for "mydomain1.com" shouldn't be an email address at mydomain1.com. If the domain expires and you have to renew it, you won't be able to do the email verifications because the domain is down. Yeah there are ways to get the domain back but they're a big hassle, and more importantly a NEEDLESS hassle. Get a GMail account and use it for your contacts, or if you manage multiple domains, the contacts for "mydomain1.com" should be people at "mydomain2.com".

2) Renew all your domains once a year. Don't wait for them to come due, because you'll never be able to keep track of them. I make a point of renewing all my domains in December of each year, as part of my end of year / prepare for the next year duties. Haven't lost a domain yet.


BiggerJ - 2017-02-22

Apparently the domain was originally registered on Feb. 22, and was last renewed on Feb. 23 2016 - it could very easily happen annually. Feb. 22 just began in Texas where the domain registrar is. One more day and we'll know for sure.

BiggerJ - 2017-02-20

The in charge of the site, the mysterious pms/pmspoe, is Patrick at POE Hosting - I've just emailed him about this at [email protected]


BiggerJ - 2017-02-20

*The guy in charge


RedRust - 2017-02-20

I'd post the contact number of the owner, but as we all know that is against the rules.


BiggerJ - 2017-02-21

I already shot him an email at [email protected] - he's Patrick at POE Hosting. I bugged him just last year when preview images were being created as black rectangles.


BiggerJ - 2017-02-20

If it expires, you can do what was described at http://www.metafilter.com/152852/Earth-has-been-restored-to-1-day- simultaneous-rotation#6200669 and https://www.facebook.com/VADsolutions/posts/940737745999134 back when timecube.com expired - go to https://www.networksolutions.com/manage-it/bulk-renewal.jsp , enter poetv.com and pay to renew it - anyone can do this, even if they don't own the site. You can do it only after it expires and before it's released - I don't know how long it takes to be release, but timecube.com was down for a few weeks before someone renewed it.


BiggerJ - 2017-02-20

Nevermind, POEtv's with Wild West Domains instead and they don't let anyone renew a domain like Network Solutions does..


RedRust - 2017-02-20

And Wild West Domains is how to find the phone number contact...


chumbucket - 2017-02-20

poeTV has always prided itself on its self serve model of Web admin


Cena_mark - 2017-02-20

If this is the end, much love. Thanks for all you taught me.


badideasinaction - 2017-02-21

Maybe it'll be renewed. Maybe this is it. Been fun, either way, even if things have gotten a little crazy the last while.

I joined Poe-red pre-2000 under a different account. It's been a ride.

As someone who has mostly been a lurker, I love you guys, and I love how rickety this dang site is, it's like a wooden bridge to a temple filled with wonders


BiggerJ - 2017-02-21

I've done all I can. If it turns out the POE Hosting guy genuinely forgot to renew the domain, i will have been a geniune honor to save this site. This site is something geniunely good.


poorwill - 2017-02-21

I'm more of a last minute addition. Submitting videos to this site and attending/hosting MNR feels like time well spent.

I was a lurker here, and at Poe-news, going back to at least 2000. Great videos with incisive discussion and well crafted ASCII penises. I only registered last year, I'm still not sure why I did really, though I have enjoyed sharing my particular love of John Larroquette and other random bullshit. Really though, I love this place and most of you filthy assholes. Never change, and I want you all to know that I will be recommending each and every one of you for commendation... in whatever fleet we end up serving.

This place gives me diarrhea anyway

This would be the perfect epitaph to write on POETV's gravestone.


Louddetective - 2017-02-21

Just got back here after three or so years away. If this is the end, bless you all. In many ways, this was really the only ""good"" site.


Rodents of Unusual Size - 2017-02-21

Also can't we do a collective fundraiser (not GoFundMe though, they literally steal from people) to ensure it doesn't go under?


simon666 - 2017-02-21

This place is going to be low bandwidth, considering the homepage images are only like 2-3k, it's mostly text, and the videos are all embedded. I bet Patrick or whomever might be willing to transfer the site and db to new caretaker that has the bandwidth and hosting.

Everyone is spazzing out unduly. I would not be surprised if Our Mysterious Overlords renew the domain every year on the day it's due, and this year is no different, except time someone noticed the domain was coming due and everyone panicked.

There's no need for a collective fundraiser; there's a Donate button on the front page. Also donate to kingarthur, he's not getting enough love.

I hearby renew my offer to build a new very similar poetv if it actually really dies. If I use the time I normally spend on poetv each day I should get it done pretty fast! :)


Eternalurker - 2017-02-21

Like the name says, I've been lurking here forever.
Goodbye everyone! I'll remember you in therapy.


posertom - 2017-02-21

Long-time lurker, going back to portalofevil.com. I hope this is some kind of a false alarm. I'm honestly not sure what I'll do with the internet once this place goes away.


Gmork - 2017-02-21

Here since POE-Red. I will always remember this as the place I discovered alex chiu, shitting dicknipples, and a website filled with pictures of strange and mysterious tropical diseases that turn your feet into sponges.


Tycho - 2017-02-21

Is this actually a cause for concern? I've been lurking around here since POE-Red, even had a portalofevil.com email address (which I used on a resume that led to my first job out of college). This must not be allowed to happen, as a mostly silent observer I have witnessed earth from an astonishingly different perspective because of this site and would miss you all. Even the bouncers.

i followed 9/11 on poe news and still judge video games by time-to-crate. this is, in my opinion, the only comments section worth reading on the entire internet.

i pulled prime directive on this place until kingarthur got sick. only a website i'd spent this much time on could make me question my own mortality.

the loss of this place and kingarthur and everyone else here...let's just say that would be my david bowie. this is a piece of the old internet, one of the few left. i think i may have to start a paypal account...

...though i can't help but feel this is like that scene in a movie where everyone thinks they're gonna die all the feelings come out and then the plane stabilizes and we all sit around blinking awkwardly at each other. guess we'll find out soon!


Tycho - 2017-02-22

Yeah, 9/11 on POE-news for me too. I wish that site hadn't turned into an insane pit and died. I miss the bulbs.


Maggot Brain - 2017-02-22

Back when poeRed what the second thing that popped on Google when you entered the word "Evil."


Tycho - 2017-02-22

You got me all nostalgic about portalofevil, I just spent some time on the wayback machine. I had forgotten about the POE affiliates like old man murray. It was a weird dive into the past, like reading a college roommate's old journal. This place may have changed, but it is still a pretty cool vestige of the original web. While everywhere else keeps changing content delivery and mission statements to try to cram more ads into my brain, I really like coming back to this place and just seeing weird and amazing videos presented by a mostly unknown (to me anyway) cloud of people. I don't know of anywhere else on the web like this place, there isn't really a pandering to a certain age group, or a drive to push up membership. This place merely is. Like we all just write messages on a rock in the wilderness. I've seen a lot of arguments here, and people leave, but in the end it never mattered much to the rock. There was always plenty of room left to write.


BHWW - 2017-02-21

IT would be a shame to lose this place, in part because it's the last real remnant of PoE - I've posted at many different forums but Poe-Original and PoE-News were for awhile one of my preferred places to post. I still miss PoE occasionally and wonder what the denizens' take on this or that happening would be today. I know the internet changes and all that but I've really become accustomed to this place.


BiggerJ - 2017-02-22

If this is it, I'll miss this, and all of you, terribly.


BiggerJ - 2017-02-22

Oh, and apparently the domain was originally registered on Feb. 22, and was last renewed on Feb. 23 2016 - it could very easily happen annually. Feb. 22 just began in Texas where the domain registrar is. One more day and we'll know for sure.


muffinbutt - 2017-02-23

Last one out, remember to turn off the bulb.


Ranma X. - 2017-02-23

I'll keep the light on until the void swallows us whole.


Kennifu - 2017-02-24

looks like we're ok! I have been lurking for so long here, can't believe it's been ... at least 15 years or more? In that time I went from a broke student, to finally finding a moderately successful career and becoming financially stable. I never had anything witty or smart to post so I've been quiet here, from POE-red, POE-news to POEtv but have been reading your posts and just want to say I'm glad to have known all of you virtually. It's incredible to think that things like Geocities, Asianavenue, Friendster, Myspace and all those bigger communities have since become lost to time, but yet this place managed to stay alive. Wishing everyone well.


Louddetective - 2017-02-26

Man, I'm glad you're all still here.


Crab Mentality - 2018-02-20

What a scary day this was one year ago.
