What's happened to Nonags?

Nonags, the long-established freeware/shareware site, briefly disappeared a few weeks back, having changed its domain name from nonags.com to nonags.org; but that domain has also subsequently gone offline. Nonags' Facebook page, which was available up to a few days ago, is also no more.

Curiously, I can find no comments on Google from other users regarding the disappearance - does anyone have an insight as to what's happened?

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

I noticed this a week ago, and am perplexed.  All my seraching turns up notheing.  Feel a little hurt if they went out of business without even a goodbye email---as I had bought a lifetime membership.   Will keep digging as much as I can and  post if i find out anything

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

I've never heard of it but a google brings up nonags.com as a free casino site? 

and nonags.org as saying there is technical difficulties....

 

Google -

trying site recovery, if successful it may take up to several days. - hardware errors found. - level 2 started. - unknown error .

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

Yesterday Google search summary said nonags.com had not been hacked but sold to the highest bidder. The page that came from was unavailable to view. Today Norton Security  says the site is "unsafe" (Computer Threats: 1) Yesterday when I looked it reported that the site was "Untested".

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

I did go to their facebook page and got a response when they took down the nonags.com site. They basicly said they had sold nonags.com but everything would be available on nonags.org. Now they just disappeared. I too had a lifetime membership. I did get to use that membership for many years and feel that i got my moneys worth. Still I'm sad to see it go. i would like to know what happened. They did have some questionable stuff (music, books, etc.) I wonder if they got busted?

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

Major suckage; feel SOLD OUT!

Also paid "lifetime" membership, and contributed stuff.

Probably sold to an entity interested in suppressing competition to commercial [a] package[s]/venue[s].

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

I did not have a lifetime membership but had used the site for quite a while and am disappointed that it has gone off line. what I find interesting is that there has been no notifications or updates to tell us what happened or if there are any plans for a return.

Also, does anyone know of a site that provides free software like nonags did?

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

I also did not have a membership,But I found a lot of cool stuff there,I had the exact same thing happen on a site called prochat where I had a chat script I paid for one day they was just gone, its seems to me that kind of stuff should be illegal for people who have paid money, without a explanation...

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

I am sad to see it go too.  I am a software junkie, and NONAGS has been one of the most valuable web sites I have ever used in the 17 years I have been on the internet.  I loved it so much I even posted a link to it on my own web site.

I am glad I found this thread.  I am also dismayed that they disappeared without any warning or explanation whatsoever.  I have seen free e-mail providers do this over the years, but I thought a site as popular as NONAGS would be more considerate to their users.

Has anybody found out what happened?

Re: What's happened to Nonags?

They sold out Undecided after all these years! I also had a lifetime membership and linked them on my googlepage. Cry I wish they had let us know so we could have downloaded a few more good programs! They should have charged more for membership or at least let us know and we could have contributed to a fund or something. I guess like all good things their time has ended. So sad. I used to know a bunch of freeware sites but stopped using them when I found NoNags. Will have to check and get back to ya. What a tragedy...
