Site Info & Other Fascinating Stuff

Site Status

8-8-19: Unfortunately my web host has been having serious technical problems for many months, and as a result my site and many others they host have frequently been completely offline or partially inaccessible, often for extended periods. That may mean hours, days or longer. If service does not improve I will be forced to change hosts.

Site Content

Certain sections of this site may contain mild depictions of violence, nudity, or strong language.
Parental discretion advised.

Site Privacy & Security

This site does not use visitor tracking elements, such as web cookies. You will find no malware here either.
If you do, please contact me immediately, because it means my site has been hacked and malicious content covertly implanted by cyber crooks.

Site Links & Ad Revenue

Twilight Blue is currently a free, personal, non-commercial domain. We have no ad sponsors, and receive $0.00 in ad/click revenue. Links are posted purely for educational or entertainment value, and should lead to safe, reputable, spam free websites and on-topic articles.

Copyright Complaints

For DMCA takedown notification, please use the Contact Page to email directly.
Your complaint will be promptly addressed.

Site Browser & Device Compatibility

My site isn't very mobile friendly. Fairly high bandwidth consumption and general site layout isn't geared toward mobile users.
Re: Chrome: My site isn't Chrome compatible. Chrome seems to have considerable difficulty processing web animations, embedded audio and video, scripts, flash elements, and so on.
Chrome users may experience a lot of lag here, due to high cpu usage.
I recommend Firefox for a smoother ride, or try another browser.
Re: Edge: Media players or audio streaming may not function properly with Microsoft Edge.

Technical Problems

Our site may periodically experience technical issues, such as outages, or site pages fail to properly load. That's probably because my web host is having server isssues, and may be performing server maintenance, and occasionally web hosts are subject to DDoS attacks. Unfortunately those problems are out of my control, but will be investigated and hopefully quickly resolved.

Site Participation

Currently no part of twilight blue offers user registration, subscription or membership service, other than the chat room. However chat access is closed to guests at this time. That feature is presently reserved for friends and family members.

Flash Games - Security Concerns & Offline Play

Adobe Flash Player is well-known for vulnerabilities, which have been exploited to run/install malware.
I'm no expert on the subject, but it's important to keep the add-on updated, and don't run or download swf files hosted on suspicious or disreputable sites.


If you play the games on my site, and you're prompted to allow twilight.blue, or a third party website, to store data on your computer, just click DENY and continue. Unless you're building a castle in Crush the Castle II, in which case it may be best to allow the game extra storage access, to save your building progress.

Other than that, it isn't necessary to allow storage access on your system to play any of the games on my site. Your browser should have adequate memory to play most flash games online.

The "core.mochibot.com" request is due to game devs adding code designed for analytics & marketing purposes. More info here. That company now appears to be defunct, with zombie servers, but the code may still be used for dubious purposes, so I will probably remove any game that contains the Mochibot code.
In the meantime, please Deny access to Mochibot.com

My website has nothing to do with the data storage aspect. I have no access to, nor control over, whatever data is transferred.
It's probably just harmless game cache, such as saving your game progress, but I have no idea what specific type data would be transferred between the game and your computer, or what it might be used for.

Embedded Game Links and Ads: If you click any link contained in the games, you do so at your own risk.
I won't accept any responsibility for third party sites and content. But if you find any suspicious links in the games, please contact me so I can take a look. I will remove any game containing malicious links or code.

Playing Games Locally / Offline on Desktop: You can generally do so with your browser, if you have flash player/projector installed.
R-click on the swf file and select 'open with' your browser.
IE still runs SWF files locally, but that option is disabled in newer versions of Firefox. Go here for instructions on running flash games in Firefox.
