Hello Everyone,

I just want to say that I am very sadden to have to of made this decision.  It was long thought out and was not something that was posted on a whim.  Let me assure you, it is not a financial reasoning.  This is a time and energy issue.  All of us have devoted countless hours into building these sites and ultimately this entire network.  

I wish I could express how saddened I am inside to have to of come to this conclusion.  I would rather leave on a high note than let something that I cannot tend do die from neglect on my part.

I love everything about these sites, especially our users.  Without you all of this would have not been worthwhile.  My love and commitment to the live music community is without limit. I truely hope that everyeone continues to share the in the love of the music.  

It will be a dim day in my life when I hit the "power" button.  An important chapter of my life will have come to a close but not without a final paragraph devoted to each and every one of you.  It has been a fun ride.

It seems the problems here, is finding someone with the technological knowledge and time to devout to the site, I'm sure the second part of the problem can be sorted between a few of us, maybe a consortium of some sort?

Agreed, Graham. There's a lot of us willing to pool our energy together to do organizational work. The key is finding someone who has the know how regarding the technological aspects.

Im in on the consortium of some sort?

I'm happy to put in the time and energy to keep this going as many of us are, If we need to move it to a new server to keep it running. We will all need to get together on this I feel, I think it would be a shame to let this die.

I'm just looking in to getting a server to move the site to as I know a guy who runs a hosting network, (fingers Crossed)

Hey guys, I am more than willing to help with the initial setup and transfer if need be. Unfortunately I can't assist with on-demand support but more general (non-pressing) problems that have a few days would be more appropriate.

The server would require no more than 500GB / monthly bandwidth.

This is actually more than the server would probably ever use and am basing it on an estimate. In reality it would probably only use 150-250GB / month.
