Thx a lot ST, please keep us updated!

@Glow yeah, I get you. And I try to re-post stuff with a link to the original place, or just quote stuff inside new content. I too don't mind having it archived...like many who spend years there, I just don't want to loose my stuff or the access to great seduction material.

Parts of the site could only be accessed when logged in due to privacy concerns.

The sections you are talking about are the journal and field report sections.

But even when logged in some posts like the one I'm looking for where no longer accessible.

I think they removed entire sections like the HOF section.

When I went there a week or something ago, it redirected me to some .live website, but no popups but still a possible risk.

yes this is what i meant, i don't feel comfortable either making points and then in my points sending people there due to that reason...

Sorry to be slow responding. I have been busy.

I can read NextASF just fine. I go to https://nextasf.com and it works.

I got an admin account again. It's worthless. When I log in to the control panel, I get a white page with no links. I tried adding on additional stuff like /index.com, and other common section names I got a lot of no such page messages. I did manage to open the part where you change settings for the site, looking for the user agreement, but could not find it. BD is going to have it fixed somehow, but he fired the first two guys working on it for being incompetent. I suspect they fucked up the control panel, which was working correctly when I lost my admin account in July. This project is not his highest priority.

It's the Internet. If there is an article you think is solid gold, copy it and save it as a file. Stuff dissappears from the Internet all the time. I know this is no help for people wishing they could read the hidden stuff, but it may save you in the future.

When I goto this thread, it has those redirects/ads/possible script viruses or whatever they might be


It redirected to howtestscent1 dot live or something and another one was to you're firefox 50billionth search click below to get your prize SCAM do not click that, nice potential trojan or something request right there.

Another redirect was to b dot bestdealfor35 dotr life/robot37 etc

Anyone else get this redirects? I do run uBlock origin, perhaps it let some of the bad stuff through when I was on my phone.
I'm guessing not much can be done since it would cost more to keep it going and on top of that, make it adfree [I'm guessing it has ads I'm not sure, I certainly didn't click any ads, those redirects were on their own].
Or is it not money, we just don't know what's actually the cause of this?

I hope it's ok to comment on this thread at this time, 18 months after the last comment.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what happened to the original mASF site and its servers. Did La Ruina wipe the servers ? Does he still own them ?

I personally would not give you two bits for Blackdragon's NextASF content, but the content and archives of the original mASF are virtually PRICELESS, as far as I'm concerned. What would it take to find and purchase those servers and add all of the original mASF content to this site ? ? ? ? ? As I said in my first post on this site, just minutes ago, it is impossible to overstate the loss to the seduction world when the original FastSeduction.com was shut down. The value of the posts, the archives, the comments, the stories, the experience and the wisdom on that site is beyond calculation.

@Linguinator,

Commented on your other post about the chronology.

But, Jay (Formhandle) sold Fastseduction.com and the mASF boards to Rich (Gambler).

After the sale, the forum was poorly maintained, and at some point the server became corrupted. They apparently(?) tried to bring it back but failed to do so. I'd assume they have a backup somewhere. I do know there are folks in the community who have copies of the mASF database, but obviously they can't distribute those due to copyright law.

Anyway, Rich has since sold most of his properties. He sold PUATraining a little while back, I think about 1.5 years back. I'd imagine that came with the other web properties he owned (but not the games or his YouTube). Not sure who the buyer was, but whoever that is, that individual or entity likely owns the rights to mASF now. Presumably that individual/entity has a viable backup of the mASF servers as well... but I'm not sure.

As I said in my first post on this site, just minutes ago, it is impossible to overstate the loss to the seduction world when the original FastSeduction.com was shut down. The value of the posts, the archives, the comments, the stories, the experience and the wisdom on that site is beyond calculation.

I agree, it was the golden age for online seduction chronicling, for sure. Forums don't get that kind of activity and attract anywhere near as many talented seducers any longer.

Hey, Chase, thanks for the info and correction. I had only a rough understanding of the sequence of catastrophies that resulted in the demise of mASF.

I'm just nerdy enough to sit around reading things like Abraham Lincoln's speeches and letters, mainly because he was a true genius and an unparalleled, brilliant writer. The loss of mASF reminds me of a letter he wrote to one of his generals, Meade, early in the War Between The States that expressed his disappointment at the general's unforgivable inaction and failure to attack Lee's army, at a moment when Lee's army was extremely vulnerable, and end the war right then and there.

Paraphrasing from memory, Lincoln said, "I do not believe you understand the magnitude of the misfortune that your failure to attack Lee's army represents. At no time has his army been more fatigued and less prepared for a fight and never has our army been stronger and had this much advantage in a potential battle. You very easily could have attacked him and destroyed his army, but you tarried along the river and Lee and his army made their escape. Now your golden opportunity is gone and I am distressed immeasurably because of it."

(This is a very rough and abbreviated paraphrase. The actual letter to Meade was several paragraphs, not one. Anyone can find it in a three-second search.)

That's how I feel about the death of FastSeduction.com. Our "golden" website and its unfathomable treasure of seduction accounts and wisdom is gone, and I am distressed immeasurably because of it.

I also don't understand how anyone who owns the mASF servers and material can fail to comprehend the value of that content and not see the value of restarting that website.

The only bright spot is this site and the fact that you are, to some degree, modeling it after mASF: it's neither intolerably commercial nor a vehicle for some guru's massive ego, as some of the other sites have been.

Interestingly enough, Lincoln never sent that letter to General Meade.

Maybe this will reduce your sorrow. Many of the content from the old forum is maybe lost but a very interesting portion of it is on Maniac Pick Up is which surprisingly still online: http://www.pickupguide.com/

I think some of the content is even older; dating back to asf rather than mASF.

Good Reading
