    Hey guys, I think my time with Project Reality and this community is over.

    I am not going to spend any time writing up a big goodbye.

    Anyway, the web/TeamSpeak server costs 22.13 euros a month.
    The URL www.prteamwork.com costs 14.38 euros a year, next due date is 20/02/2022
    The PRTA.co domain is £35.99 for 1 year and the next update is pending 2022-01-18.

    I don't want to keep paying this as this really gives me nothing in return.

    If no one sane steps forward by September to take over, I will simply shut down and cancel all services.

    Sloan Inspect are the only two active people who know how to "manage backend stuff" so if they want to step in and take over feel free to let me know.

    Have a great day guys :smile:

    That is some tough news to swallow. :frown: Thanks for the great moments and for leading this community in good and bad times. You'll be remembered! :wicca.wicca.wicca:

    Thankfully we still have the community discord so we dont loose the peoples (or is that also a paid service?).

    Discord is not a paid service of course, but I don't think I will keep it. I can transfer it to someone... ???

    I said all I had to say in a gazillion posts including my previously final one.
    It's been a pleasure overall and I don't want to miss a second of my contribution time. Damn it's been a blast to work here. No matter what.

    It's a sad step to take Wicca , but I am sure it'll also be a relief for you and for some other people. Time for new endeavors. I hope there are a few to come. I'll always be around, if there's anything I have the power and time to help with.

    So...last words?
    Quite a bunch of people will always have a very special place in my heart. I am not calling names, cause I'm sure I'm going to forget someone, but you know who you are. Some of you have been mentors for me, for some I've been the mentor.
    I just hope tech guys archive some stuff and .... I don't know... put it on github or some free cloud space? 'Cause, who know's right?

    And sorry, it again is a bit of a melodramatic text. I just can't help it. PRTA is an emotional place for me.

    Fairwell!

    Well, I will put out the most famous one ever - kudos to mineral-wouter (who apparently doesn't have an account here anymore - at least I can't tag it)

    And people were saying PRTA isn't willing to stop using Linux. Thats one way to do it I guess.

    I'm not going to write anything long either, but wanted to say a few things.

    Thanks for creating PRTA and Foxtrot. We've gotten lots of shit over years, some of it deserved some of it not, but it has changed our lives for the better, by giving us the opportunity to meet so many awesome people. This is what gaming should be about.

    I know not everybody liked you and that's not really the reason why you are leaving, but you always treated me well and I've never had any problems with you.

    Also thank you for organizing the PRTA IRL event, which is one my favourite periods of time of my recent life. Without you Ghost would've never actually gone for it, so thank you for pushing him to do it.

    And lastly thank you for being around for so long man. PRTA is almost 11 years old and it would've not been possible if you weren't around. You've helped organize so many events and tournaments. PR wouldn't be the same without you.

    Best of luck with everything you have planned, hope to see you in greener pastures.
