It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to hand off administration to someone else. A contact of mine offered to take it off my plate and I've agreed. I'm simply tired of idiots trying to twist my words, lying about how things happened, leaving things out, or trying to claim after the fact that things that were clearly intended as threats were not. I just don't need the headache. I don't even play on the site, nor profit from it. It fact, it costs me money for the server every month (I only take donations for the domain name, which is a separate expense). The new administrator is not now, nor ever was, a White Wolf player, much less a member of the old chats or friends with any random ones of you. Whether they open the site back up or keep it closed will be entirely their prerogative and nothing to do with me. Also, who they ban/unban will also be in their purview, not mine. With the exception of the few bad apples who like to spread unfounded lies, I've enjoyed talking to you all and my time administering the site. Over the next few weeks to months the site will likely be moved to a new server. At some point in the near future the new administrator will likely post their own message. To clarify: The site is NOT shutting down, someone else is just taking over running it. Were they to decide not to do it anymore, the chats would come back to me.This proud Victorian-style manor stands in the city's residential area. No one knows it's exact location as the manor seems to find those it deems worthy of entry rather than the other way around. Past the wrought metal gates a stone path threads its way up to the wooden porch and the house's main door. A sign reads "Infinity Club: Members Only". On the gate itself, a "Wet Paint" sign "coincidentally" turns aside those with only casual interest in the structure. Stepping inside brings one into the mansion's entry hall, which has been converted into a small club. A scattering of tables, chairs and couches offer places to relax and talk, while a well-stocked bar, a jukebox and a dartboard offer other distractions. Beyond them all a number of warded doorways and staircases lead deeper into the manor proper. (Tradition Magi and Allies only)

LP: ((That's sad. I hope you'll reconsider. Didn't realize you were running in the negatives, wouldn't mind donating to keep it open.))
LP: ((We've kept the Chantry game going elsewhere, but this was always the place to go to touch base with potential new players, or the occasional ones.))
: Sadly it doesn't sound like it's a money issue and more the issue of what most chat admin wind up running into these days with drama. Linc was kind enough to keep the chats running is basically what they are saying despite gaining nothing from it but there is only so much drama that people can face. Thank you however Linc for keeping them open as long as you did. Even if I never played really it was nice to peek in and catch old players to catch up with now and again. Hopefully those who play together keep in touch and/or find new places to play since there are a few chats out there. But it will be sad to see the nostalgic one go for sure.
: Site isn't shutting down, just changing who's running them.
theJaer OOC: It might not be shutting down right away, but it will be up to the new person managing it to shut it down or not if it proves too much of a hassle for them to keep up. Since it's someone who isn't associated with WoD at all, hopefully that means fewer complaints at them about favoritism or game drama. However, that also means they would have no qualms in shutting things down if they felt like shifting their attention and resources elsewhere instead of this site. All in all, the future is an unknown highway. Thanks again Linthra for the time and space you have given us.
: Where can we continue the Chantry game elsewhere? I dunno what I would do without my weekly dose of Jareth
