Thread: Time to move on

  1. Default Time to move on

    It comes to a point where you begin to realize:

    "What am I still doing here?"
    "Am I gaining anything by doing this?"
    "Shouldn't I be thinking more about my future?"

    A site like this takes a lot of time and a lot of passion. My passion has most certainly not run out - I still love working with the site and doing extractions. However, the time it takes to do quality extractions and provide great information is daunting. Furthermore, I feel a growing disconnect with newer players of Maplestory. They stay the same age while I just get older and older. I'm 23 now, and I don't see myself staying here much longer.

    So, I am leaving SP members with a choice. Find someone who is willing to run the site AND can perform extractions. The alternate option is that I shut down the website on June 15 for good. This date is non-negotiable.

    A person who I select to run the site will have access to:

    - All of my scripts and binaries
    - FTP/MySQL/Root access to the server (paid up through the 17th - costs $35/mo - host is through VPSLink)
    - Access to the server host control panel
    - Access to the site I use for image hosting ( - paid up through January 2011)
    - Full admin access on Southperry
    - Pre-made fully customized server
    - Ability to collect donations and ad revenue (site is self-sustaining)
    - vBulletin license (publisher's version)
    - Access to the DNS (NameCheap - yearly dues are next month)
    - I will stay for two weeks to help with the transition and ease you into using my scripts if you'd like

    The person I'm looking for has the following qualities:

    - Familiarity with WZ files a necessity
    - Previous forum admin experience a plus
    - Never been banned from SP in any way
    - Have a passion for data extraction
    - Familiarity with Python a plus

    If you're interested in buying Southperry, please PM me with your bid and any relevant experience you have. If you would like, you can contact me on MSN at --------- or on AIM at --------.

    Between now and June 15, it will be business as usual around here. There will still be moderation. I will still be posting extractions, and I will stay with the site until the end.

    Thank you, Southperry, for the good times. All good things must come to an end. And yes, I did shed a tear writing this.

    Stay Chinchillin',

    Good luck. I'm indifferent as to whether or not SP stays up or comes under new management, as I've nothing to do with MapleStory, but I wish you well; I would've done the same thing in your position.

    Oh god this is completely unexpected. :( Good luck dude.

    Buy Southperry? I know you payed for all the stuff that keeps this forum up, but isn't it a little greedy to sell off your baby like that? Wouldn't it be better to find someone who fits all the things you listed, pass the torch on to them, and then have them pay for all the stuff once it expires?

    Are you kidding me?

    Uh, you caught me completely off-guard.

    Is this for real? I'm sad now. This is the end of a happy family and the best MS forum around in the history of ever.

    Will you at least stay here and post some? This is one of my favorite forums, and that is because of you, Fiel. Hopefully someone qualified will step up, and be able to fill your shoes.

    I know that, but it doesn't answer my question.

    I know Swerve, but this is like a shared house see.

    Not greedy at all. As much as you are getting the right to be an SP owner, you are also getting a pre-built, optimized server, a vBulletin license (the one used on this site retails for $200+), a shared webhosting service paid up through January (~$35), as well as an already established site in the community, all of my scripts, etc. etc. etc.

    Its not the same to be in a forum with lots of people than having their E-mails. So unless we ALL posted our emails and started group conversations It will never be the same...

    But lets look at the bright side: there is still hope that a hero will rise and take SP.
