Dedicated to the memory of Tom Tweedy 1948 - 2008
Site ClosedownI'm sad to report that after discussion within the admin team we've decided to close down the site as an active gaming resource.
We will be keeping the site up as a memorial to Tom and if I ever get round to sorting out the games I archived offline when we got hit by the hackers as a lasting archive of the games.
More details when we get ourselves sorted out.
This is not a decision we've taken lightly, I've been involved with the site since 1999 when Tom first approached me for a little help and the administrator has been around for many years as well when we needed help running the site with the moderator popping along later. The site couldn't have continued without their help and that of the GMs.
However it's apparent that modern technology has left us behind and modern playing styles are both going ahead with mobile apps and interestingly backwards to more face to face games (which rather cheers me up). With my current and increasing committments which also applies to the others we simply don't have the time or inclination to go through a full scale re-invention of the site in the way we did in 2003 and again in 2009.
We have all thouroughly enjoyed our involvement in the site and it saddens us that this decision has been needed but as you can see if you look at the stats page the number of games starting has slowed to a virtual stop. we did commit to keeping the site up while there will still players and GMs wishing to use it, while we still have GMs it appears we've run out of players.
The GMs who have run games on this site since 1999 and to who we are eternally grateful are
