What happens to some sites wen Flash Player is Discontinued? I Know this site where its fun, But the developer gave up on it. So does this mean it will no longer work. The game is (And its 18+ game leave me alone) Banned from equestria daily. Dont judge ay? Any way it will still be avalable?

If the website is entirely Flash driven, it is of little use to anyone.  Browsers have already stopped supporting Flash Player plugins by default.  And mobile devices never supported Flash.   https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Plugins/Roadmap Website owners should have an exit strategy in place.  Flash content must be re-built with replacement technologies like MP4 video or HTML5 animation.   Otherwise, the site should be taken down permanently.

Sites that need Flash Player will no longer work. Unless they are made to work a different way (a project that might take days or years). That’s all folks. People who run sites have had years to do this work, but for various reasons many sites won’t be changed and will be dead. Perhaps most alarming is that quite a lot of colleges have active courses that use Flash, and have done nothing. It’s probably too late for many of them, and their students. (I don’t say any of this is good).
