Who are the Grey Havens LLC? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

While I'm neither new to nor really playing the game at this time, I'm interested in who the Grey Havens LLC are, since I can't find any information online about them.

Any information out there?

I believe one of the OM's on the Spiral Knights forum stated that the website has been long since outdated and that the company wasn't meant to be a museum anymore - but it may have already been updated and I may be wrong.

The website doesn't really say who "they" are. Who are the owners, the principles, the people behind the mask?

It's been updated since the YPP migration - it was offline for a short time too. In the last few days the icon on the top bar of this website has been updated to have a Grey Havens logo there which links to the now working website.

I think perhaps they made some internal changes as to who owns it or what their scope of involvement is with each game - as some games like Bang! Howdy no longer get updates but servers are kept online in order to keep the game available.

With the new additions to the Grey Havens roster of games, and no doubt the addition of numerous active employees from those games (developers and community staff) - they are seemingly taking a slightly different and more involved approach with these. Cronus said in another thread :

Have I missed or not found some statement of intent, plans etc. from Grey Havens?


Yes, we want to provide new content and/or changes to existing content. We haven't determined what that new content will be, so we don't have plans we can update you on.

Our first order of business is to make sure both of our MMOs are working properly which is a larger task than you'd think. For example, we needed to create a new ticket system for emails.

Once that is done we can turn our attention to lingering technical issues to make sure that if someone new wants to play, they can actually download and install the game properly.

We hope to have some more concrete plans soon.

For trivia buffs, I'm happy to announce that we just got our first piece of actual mail. It arrived from the great state of Nebraska. Full sails ahead!

I've noticed that everything seems to be located somewhere in Europe now. YPPedia is 4 hours ahead of where I am, EDT, but the forums are 5 hours ahead??? Where's Faulkston when ye need him to find some info about this, lol.

Edit: Correction: Grey Havens LLC seems to be based in Ohio! http://www.manta.com/c/mbsxxr5/grey-havens-llc
Could be wrong, though. This site seems a tad sketchy, lol....

Edit #2: Okay, it seems to be confirmed with other sites on the Google search for Grey Havens LLC, but the issue remains about the 4 and 5 hours ahead... Very odd.....

The time in the forums is based on your settings, if you go into my profile and change my settings you can edit you location.

Not sure about YPPedia I always thought it was the same as the forums, it might be to do with the clock change. I have my location as the UK and the time is usually correct but it moves the clock to daylight saving time at the time the clocks change in the US where we change the clocks a couple of weeks later (and back to standard time a week or two earlier)
