VGIRE Launched! 

Oct 22nd at 6PM / tagged: news. / 1 note

MONAGHAN, Ireland - 22nd October 2012

My name is Padraig “VampiricPadraig” Fahy, founder of Gamers And Geeks. Since 2008, we have had a small (less than 25 people) community of which most of us are PC gamers! Unfortunelly, Gamers and Geeks had to close because of various reasons as outlined in previous posts!


This gave me time to think about doing something new, but something that I enjoy…Forums!


Since the beginning of October 2012, I have created VGIRE. It’s current name means “Video Games Ireland”, but this may change soon!


So, what is this blog post about. Well, this is to let you know that you can register for VGIRE right now, and if you want, you can help us get the site up and moving.


We need all the help and support from everyone (not just from Ireland) to get VGIRE going!


So please, come check us out and sign up today and tell your friends about it! Thank you!

UPDATE: 26th September 2012 

Sep 26th at 2PM / tagged: news. / 0 notes

Hi everyone, 

I have no immediate plans to bring back G&G in any shape or form.

But I have been contacted about the sale of Gamers And Geeks.

It’s not for sale!!! 

Just because the site is closed, doesn’t mean that I won’t use the name for something else. Please understand this.

If you think that you can do something with Gamers and Geeks, then drop me a email at contact@gamersandgeeks.net with your ideas and then we can talk it through.

But at this time, no, nothing is being done. But I am brainstorming. More on that on a later date. 

Thanks for reading!


RE: State of Gamers and Geeks 

Hi everyone. Let me get straight to the point and not beat around the bush about it.

Gamers and Geeks is not doing well. FACT.
We have achieved over 6000 views in the past 2 months with about 6 registrations, most of which are spam bots (Typical).

Well, As from today, I will not be running a community! I don’t have the patience, motivation and I am wasting my money on something that has gained nothing.

I know I have shut down the sites and restarted it a load of times, but this is it. I am done.

I have promoted the HELL out of Gamers and Geeks, with no luck. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, GW2Guru forums and ForumPromotion. Nothing worked.

I can’t keep spending money on nothing. I am just wasting my time.

The only reason I have kept G&G open is because I am currently unemployed…and I wanted to do something as a hobby. This ofcourse has failed. Majorly.

What happens now? Well, due to Enjin’s plans, In 13 days (from this post being created), the site will default back to gamersandgeeks.enjin.com - I will probably move the domain back to here on Tumblr for notice purposes. 

Q: What about the Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Steam group. 

A: They won’t be deleted…They will be left inactive.

Q: What about the Guilds and Teams?

A: All teams and guilds are hereby disbanded, even though no one applied to be in a team. I will be joining a Guild Wars 2 guild when the game goes live. 

Q: Is this the end?

A: Yes. This is the end…for the final time.

Q: Any other reason why G&G is closing?

A: Haters. People hate me and want me dead…simple as that.

I am here closing Gamers and Geeks for the final time….and the tag G&G/GnG is no more. 

Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the past while. 
Thanks to all the domain and host providers over the past couple of years.

Goodbye! 


Reminder: We are on Tumblr for a few days 

Jun 18th at 12PM / tagged: blog. gaming. / 0 notes

Hey eveyone, We are on Tumblr for a short but because of issues that we are having with servers and what have you. I have spent over €30 in servers this month and I (personally) haven’t used them at all.

From next week onwards, it is going to be changing dramatically.

Only €6 max per month is going to be spent on the site. I can’t spend any more than that when it comes to servers. I just don’t have the disposable income to do that. So there is not going to be anymore game servers or voice servers. Just a community forum.

Game events are going to be on the new site and they are going to be intergrated with the Steam Group (if it is a Steam game of course).

I want to get the site ready for when Guild Wars 2 is coming out and also Counter-Strike: Global Offensive when it releases on August 21st 2012.

There is going to be a application process but not for the first while, while we get sorted.

We have nearly finished the site (Well, when I say that, It’s ready to be put online) and it should be up by next Monday or possibly even this weekend if I can get everything ready for it.

Thank you anyway for sticking with us if you have!
