For those who have been within the CPPS community, over the past few years may remember Rile5.com. Rile5 was not just a forum, but the home of the CPPS community. The forums featured the majority of the founding members of the Club Penguin Private Servers, a range of resources, releases, advertisements and much much more.
Unfortunately, after its first arrival in 2011, it later was shut down in 2015 with this notice still to this day, featured on the site:
But today, this is all about to change.
The Aureus team have been hard at work on a top-secret project over the past few months, even dropping a subliminal hint just yesterday, all leading to a restoration of the Rile5 forums which was just announced.
The entire Rile5 forums have been archived, opened for public viewing. Meaning, no modifications to the forums can be made, in order to preserve them. The Aureus team has gone into full detail as part of their launch announcement:
The Rile5 Archive is now LIVE. Awaiting to be explored – exactly how it was since we last saw it in 2015.
Aureus has reached out to us, for further comment. Here are some quick questions you may have, answered:
What do I have access to?
Users have access to everything on the forum, including the trusted section. This also includes all attachments and downloadable files.
How much content was recovered?
75% of all attachments/images/uploads were recovered and 100% of all posted content on the forums. (Which totals to over 300,000 posts).
Can I get my old account back?
No. Everything on the forums are read-only and open to everyone. This is so no modifications to the forums can be made.
What version of Rile5 is this?
This is the same version of the forums used the day Rile5 closed.
What was the goal of Aureus releasing The Rile5 Archives?
Although Aureus is focused on looking to the future (programming), we thought this was important to put out there so we could remember our past while moving forward.
Whether you are in search of a tutorial, seeking help for a solution, or simply an old member of the community wanting to feel nostalgia, your answers may lie here.
This certainly is a game changer, in bringing light to an integral part of CPPS history, and we highly recommend you check it out.
