Munkki is finished. For real this time.
It's been fun, but I'm just done with this site. It's been around for about ten years (and was active for maybe six of them), and that's a pretty damn good run.
Frankly, I'm just tired of running a site I founded when I was 17. Every other time the site has "died" it's been because of lethargy or hacking or some irritating error I didn't feel like solving, but now it's just... time to move on. The forums died, but that was less a glitch and more of a completely unsolvable MySQL database error. The database is apparently just gone, there is no fixing it, because I tried to. It seemed more like a sign than anything that it's time.
I wouldn't say I've grown up (anyone who knows me can vouch that's absolutely not true), but I've changed a lot, and I'm ready to move on to other things. I'm retiring the identity of Gojiras along with Munkki, and for personal reasons any other projects I work on will not be linked here or under that alias.
To anyone who's reading this, thanks for sticking with it. Thanks for coming back when I revived the site a year ago for one last hurrah. I wish you all the best and by all means come hang out with us on IRC sometime if you're bored, it's still pretty active in there. I loved having the forums active, even for a short time, and it was wonderful catching up with everybody. I think I'm following most of you on Twitter now anyway!
If you wanna contact me, my email is gojiras.vi at gmail.com (checked sporadically, so if you email me I may take a bit to respond). I'll be on IRC in the usual spot (irc.cyanide-x.net / #munkki). I think I'm friends on Steam with pretty much everyone who still checks in on this site. Anyone with hosting on munkki.org will continue to see it function for the foreseeable future, I'm just taking down the front page and forums.
RIP Munkki, 2004-2013
