I am here today to provide you with an update on the state of Minetime. This was originally just going to be a thread where I released the maps and announced the date at which the goodbye server will come online, but there has been a change of plans. Minetime is going to be headed in a different direction than I originally anticipated -- and I think we will all agree that this is for the better. Once again, please take the time to read this entire thread before responding.
In the previous announcement thread, I listed these reasons why I was shutting Minetime down instead of selling it or transferring it to someone else:
It wouldn't feel right just selling this entire community to someone else
Minetime has certain assets that I wish to keep (such as the forums and domain names)
It would be extremely difficult to explain to anyone else how to run every facet of this network and I would be getting dragged back into it for months
