So, it's been 15 years working on this website. Online since the Internet was young in 1997, it's been a good run with the electricferret, but all things must come to an end. I am retiring from working on the existing interactive website areas of electricferret.
Fifteen years is a loooong time folks, and I cannot do this anymore. The personal time requirements needed to administrate, code, support and generally maintain the website are more than I can continue to expend. And, as you know, this entire website is a completely non-profit endeavor for me, so besides the time and work that goes into its maintenance and production on my personal off hours, it is also an ongoing personal financial drain to me.
The interactive portions of the website will be closing down. Here's the schedule.
Now - New registrations closed
by Aug 24th-25th - all CBUB / FPL functions closed down (matches, character creator, etc.)
The Forums - I do want you guys to be able to communicate and what not so I will close that out last.
The Electricferret domain will continue to exist and serve Non Interactive content. Things like the CBUB back issues and the FPL Character Database. Basically, the existing things which do not require me to deal with the Login, Authentication and Maintenance of users or put any additional time or code into the website. I have a lease on this server for the next 10 months, so the stuff will be up at least that long for your reference.
Thanks all. Peace
