mentelgen, some of you may have seen this coming but im sorry to disappoint you, its not what you think.
i would much rather avoid making a huge fuzz about it but i think you guys deserve a proper explanation, no real tl;dr will be offered but hopefully i wont really drag this along too far.
as i hinted before and i think spasm did too i'm not doing well personally, i have been going trough some rough times personally and emotionally and as it may seem very obvious to some if not most of you i have been slowly but steadily fading away from the community. i wanted to open FHC with the simple goal of keeping what was left of the SHC community alive, i committed myself to try and have as little impact to it as possible while keeping it running but i have failed to do so. yes the forum works, yes it has room to grow but sadly my situation has affected the personal portion of my commitment and to put it bluntly i cant do it anymore.
you don't have to believe me when i say that i want to keep it running, i really do, but i cant really accept the current situation as full filling the promise i made all of you in the first place which is the reason i am posting this
i want you guys, the community, to help me find someone who can take charge, someone who can and wants to be involved in the day to day situation of the community. i have no issues whatsoever to keep the site itself running, i think i did a fairly decent job setting it up and mechanically its pretty much self sufstaining. economically speaking thanks to the advertisements it almost pays itself, some of you still have ongoing donations that help cover whatever the ad revenue doesnt cover and even tho its been very rare i have paid for it myself and have no issues with continuing to do so. i am just disappointed in myself for not giving you
all of this is coming as i can think of it and it comes from my heart, feel free to mock me or insult me or call me whatever you may but i promise you that no matter what i will do my best to keep the show running
all of you deserved this explanation and hopefully we can figure out a way so we can continue to be
