Last Update: 4 July 1999
In occasion of the 15th Anniversary of the Ghostbusters Franchise Columbia/Sony seems to prepare, along with the awaited re-release in theater , a Web Site promoting the event. News and Rumors are appearing frequently this is why I have decided to collect them here.
| 2 Jul 99 | The Q&A with Ivan Reitam answer dat as been post poned to 26 July, 6 day later.
| 28 Jun 99 | Site officially up
|8 Jun99 |The official GB site has been Unofficially updated. This mean that the update is at http://www.ghostbusters.com/ghostbusters.html and if you go to the main URL you still get the DVD ad. Also this beta-version may disappear in few days.
|8 Jun 99 | GBHQ says that Netsolo receive an email from gb website team member affirming that the site would remain the same for the summer and will feature Shockwave contenetns a la EGB in the near future.
|15 Apr 99 | Sony / Columbia Pictures make available the Official Press release of GB& GB2 DVD where it says that the DVD will contains links to CP , CTHV and www.ghostbusters.com web site. Therefore we can can conclude that the site should be ready later on 29 June 99 date of the DVD releases.
|Date Unknown| GBHQ let us know that the company responsible for the Ghostbusters official Web site will be the same doing all the current Sony's pages and not Fanlox.
|Date Unknown|Proton Charging report that Columbia/Sony purchased the www.ghostbusters3.com domain name. Although this can be seen as a excellent news we have to keep in mind that there's a possibility that Sony got the domain to avoid someone else to own it
|Date Unknown|- Checked as FALSE - Some webmasters ( Paul Rudoff, Troy Benjamin..) Received an email about a new GB site set to the end of 99 with 1.5 GB of stuff featuring the possibility to have a special email address ( such as firstname.lastname@example.org), including a lot of goodies. Something that could be called "The GB dream-site" made by the guys at Fanlox.. After analysis the whole case seems to be False.
|Date Unknown | In alt.moives.ghostbusters this post appeared:
"From: Ed <email@example.com>
I e-mailed fanlox and:
As Director of Internet Relations for Fanlox.com, I am sorry to inform you
Mike M. Ziesmann
If this post, I believe we can easily suppose that Fanlox IS making a GB site, otherwise the secrecy should be needed. Is left to know if this will be the "Dream Site" we heard about. This "Dream Site" stuff still keeps to be hardly believable.
|Date Unknown|www.ghostbusters.com is down. No panic , this happen on the 'NET. Think about there's two possible causes to this :
1. The server is down for Configuration (!). Uploading pages , setting scripts etc.
|Date Unknown|Sony acquired this domain and set a GB 15th Anniversary for the end of February. Although the site is not yet ready, the URL actually redirect to the Sony Pictures Web Site.
