    • So, the trademark expiration date for MQ is October 25, if I'm correct? Are we sure that the source is reliable?

    • Someone said it in a thread, and that's about all the verification I can find.

      BTW, how's the Discord going?

      One person said so and provided a few links, however we can't be certain yet. Tannerman said he was going to ask a lawyer for help, but as long as he hasn't confirmed, we can't trust this information.

    • Why did it shutdown in the first place??

        Loading editor
    • Legal issues. Basically: people own MQ. Those people aren't us, and we don't have permission. If they see what we're doing and don't like it, the financial consequences would be huge. Too big of a risk for the devs to take.

      What? No, of course we haven't given up yet! We're looking into the rights for the game to see what we can do, and if we can't do anything, Heroes of Terra (I think that's its name now) will be the closest we can get to MQ. It'll definitely be something, which is better than giving up.

      Discord isn't active all that much at this point. I don't know if most people are on another server, or if they just gave up and left. The only server I'm active in is the Terra Quest server.

    • To be honest, I would be willing to risk this. There are private servers of countless games; Toontown Online, Pirates of the Caribbean Online, LEGO Universe, and probably even more that I can't name off the top of my head. None of them have been shut down. The point is, that if there is just absolutely no profit gained from it; no donations, no membership, no putting it on public hosting websites (e.g. Steam), no nothing; Nickelodeon is extremely likely to turn a blind eye. They don't CARE about Monkey Quest anymore; they were the ones that shut it down, after all. Why should they want to close our private servers? Disney is the most money-hungry company in the world, and they have not even spoken a word about private servers of their dead games, let alone close them; why should Nick? Some important developers of now-closed games have said that they even support fans trying to resurrect closed games, and are actively supporting and some even playing them. The point is, copyright is a risk I am willing to take, and so should everyone else if they really want their precious Monkey Quest back to them. Loads of other people have succeeded, and are still going very strong; we can do it too.

      I agree with this. It is unlikely that Nick would take action if we did not make any sort of profit etc. off of it, but there's still the perpetual "what-if" that makes it really risky.


      Also, this is just a general thing unrelated to the quote, but aside from the shooting star another weird thing happened to me. Just a few minutes ago I was reading my book and randomly thought "Is there still hope for MQ?" And a harsh ringing started in my ears but faded out. Or maybe I've just gone round the bend.

      Agreed-ish, but it's just really risky. If Nick notices and doesn't approve they won't just be waving their finger and saying "you did a bad!!". The consequenes developers would get in the worst-case scenario are too risky. Because of financial problems and stuff, you know.

      Also, as a general thing to everyone, MQ's trademark should lose effect on October 25, 2021. I don't know if this means we can use it or not, but it might be helpful to someone.

      Also, Nick can renew it if they choose to, so.

      I'm talking about how they closed up shop rather quickly and then didn't leave any comment about the donations (until weeks later). I was worried they had been another scam, as I've seen a few similar ones in the past.

      This is one of the exact problems I was trying to highlight and clear up in the post I made (which, for the record, nobody seems to have read). It doesn't matter how big the company is, whether you're Nickelodeon or Disney, Sega or Nintendo, there is no "worst-case scenario" or "consequences"; well, unless you openly ignore what Nickelodeon is trying to tell you. And to tell you that they don't approve, they would send you a DMCA request, asking you to take it down. There is nothing more they are allowed to do, unless you ignore this request and keep it online. All you would need to do is take it down! As I said in my post, I have asked experienced private server developers from games such as Toontown Rewritten, Darkflame Universe, and The Legends of Pirates Online, and this is simply what I have found. They obviously know what they're doing; if Disney and hell, LEGO completely ignore their private servers, why should Nickelodeon clamp down? And even if they did, where are these "consequences" coming from? All you would do is take your game, or your whole website down, and Nickelodeon would sing their joyous song and leave you alone. Besides, if you hosted it here on the Monkey Quest Wiki, Nickelodeon would be almost BOUND not to notice it. What famous entertainment studio spends their time looking for wikis and private servers of games that they themselves closed, and they have much better projects to be working on?

      Look, I'm not trying to be rude, but I really do want Monkey Quest to come back, and if we are getting like this about "potential risks", which are non existent unless you ignore a request to take it down from Nick, while other private servers have completely risen off the road and have loads of players and supporters, occasionally even including developers of the original game themselves, with giant name, rolling-in-it companies MUCH bigger than Nickelodeon (including the two big names, Disney and Lego) laying down and ignoring them, then we are going to get nowhere. Oh, and no donations or payment or money whatsoever apart from anything necessary to run the game (which should come out of the staff's pockets). I will admit that the consequences you guys mentioned would have been more likely if MQR had continued for that reason.

    • Honestly, your biggest problem isn't so much a takedown request, it's that probably no one knows how to make the game you guys want to make. Nick can't take down a game that's never made.

      Also, there's been so many statements thrown around here lately that show that nobody has any knowledge or experience with copyright law, or how company's legal teams work. I hate to be "that guy", but I don't see a lot of point in pointless arguments.

    • True, lol! We're getting so caught up in the worry of actually doing it that nobody has actually started to make a game yet! ūüėõ I, for one, have absolutely no idea how to program. I've just been sharing my research in hopes that I can kickstart the process a bit; if an actual programmer DOES come onto the scene (or already is here and I don't know them), that they take notice of my findings, and decide to take a leap forward and actually get a private server started. Regarding your second paragraph, it's true that I don't have any experience or knowledge myself, but the people that I asked my questions to certainly do, considering how their private servers have largely risen in popularity and have never faced any "original company" threats.

      They didn't just give up on it. They abandoned the project to avoid copyright claims which would have closed the game anyway. They pretty much have no choice in the matter, unless you want Luminex to get fried by Nickelodeon. That being said, since Legends of Tavoranna is a completely ORIGINAL project, I do hope Luminex Studios and M4V3R1CK Studios don't give up on it. Unless they run out of funding, which is unlikely anyway.

    • I don't know WHAT replaced monkey quest

    • When I first found Monkey Quest, I was 5 or 6. Once I got through the tutorial, it was surprising how good I was at the game. My parents even said I amazing at the game. Tbh, I though I was the greatest player ever, but, that's just 6 yr old kid thoughts. I played it for about a year and a half, before I fell out of it. Then, when I was 10, I got curious. I had no idea Monkey Quest had closed its doors. I couldn't find it anywhere online, so I had to fish out my Windows 7 computer. I found the Monkey Quest launcher and tried to launch it. I got greeted with a message that Monkey Quest had shut down.

      Well, that's my story. Waiting for a replacement...

    • Also, to reply to all the worrying about Legends Of Tavoranna closing, and the release date of that game. Legends of Tavoranna will not close, M4V3R1CK Digital has chosen to lead it and will continue. If for some reason they drop out, it will drop onto us. It won't happen. MQR was closed due to PERSONAL ISSUES between the owner of Luminex Studios which we do not want to disclose publicly.

      In terms of the release date of Legends Of Tavoranna, a full release won't be for quite a while. Though, we have already begun prototyping the game and creating Models. It is going very well, and development is going quicker than you may think.You will not be able to play LoT (Legends of Tavoranna) for a while, though certain testers may be chosen by early 2018 to begin playing.

      On a personal note, Luminex Studios and its leader apologise fully for MQR's closing. And in other words, as mentioned by Abce2 our Turn and run. Once again to reassure you of any pressure, all Patreon donations were cancelled before they were due. We took zero profit, we also closed our PayPal. We did not mean to scare you in the case about donations, but monkey-quest wikia is not our first priority as a company.

      On a good note, Legends Of Tavoranna is doing very well and will continue development. We hope to see you all on our discord so you can follow the project directly (if you need a link, send us a direct message).

      Thank you,

      -Luminex Studios

      A personal note from the lead-developer of MQR

      Hey, been a while since I returned to this wiki. MQR was closed because of personal problems as mentioned before, but it is open to anyone who is willing to bring it back. The files were released by me after we closed the project, meaning they are now in the hands of many. It is honestly fairly simple to reconnect the server. Buy a host (from the likes of zare.com etc) and then reconnect. There are many Networking tutorials which may help. It's not so much coding ability unless you want to get deep down into the game. Also, LoT is NOT Monkey Quest, you can't stress that enough it seems. Thanks,
