I have announced the imminent closure of UKCycling.net

(Apologies for slow response from that server; someone's publishing SPF records like there was no tomorrow and the processing's a bit heavy.)

Maeh. That is indeed a sadness.

OTOH, why can't you let it run unattended, at least until you can find someone to take it over? it'd be a shame to lose a valuable resource completely (says he, the utter non-cyclist, but I have friends who do).

News stories need to be added. Submissions to the forums have to be validated before posting or they fill up with commercial spam and flames. Parts of the site that are not pre-moderated have to be monitored for similar reasons.

I can understand both the decision and the sadness at taking it. Presumably the amount of work you've been doing on SPF was the nail in the coffin lid? Certainly a noble cause to move on to anyway.

It's difficult to maintain the enthusiasm required to run a site for something you're no longer doing regularly yourself... if I didn't fully intend to get back into fetish clubbing this year, I'd have closed down UK Fetish Info a while back, having not been to any clubs myself for ages.
