The End

Well, the time has come unfortunately. I unfortunately no longer have time to keep the site running (as you may have noticed). I'll be moving the site into readonly mode, to prepare to archive it in the next little while, starting with the KB, then the Forums. It's been a pleasure serving you for the last 21 years, but all good things must come to an end. Special thanks to the moderators who have hung on for so long, and everyone else who continues to post and chat.

First: thank you for all years.
But, any alternative to shutdown?

Oh wow .. Is it time or money or both?

hmm I guess the SUMO forums is going to get the traffic from here that is if people are willing to use a Firefox Account just to post on the SUMO site.

This sounds bad. Would be great to find some solution to at least keep the forums alive. Josa's daily build information is indispensable.

Sorry to hear this. Been fun/educational/ and a pleasure helping others along.

Guess I'll have to find a new hobby....

Oh no!
Please Jason.
If there's any way to keep the fora alive, we'd all really appreciate it.

Serving on here gives me the opportunity to assist, as best I can, anyone with a problem
PLUS, it keeps my old brain cells functioning.

I try my best for around 6 or 7 hours every night & don't know what I would do without mozillaZine
to stay active.

Thank you Jason.

Hi Jason,

As the site is already hosted by OSL then why not just swing over to their Managed Hosting? - http://osuosl.org/services/hosting/details/

Discourse is not a support site.

Official support is at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/

If you want unofficial, use the newsgroups, mailing lists or archive at Google Groups. Supported by volunteers just like mozillaZine. Firefox and Thunderbird groups are moderated.

Well, the shoe has finally dropped ...

I certainly sympathize and understand, but still, what a blow. This has been a "home" to me for 17 years now, and in that time I've learned a lot and tried to pass it on by helping others as best I can. The official Moz support site just isn't the same. You will be missed, sorely.

Thanks for all the fish.
