Sup fellas! First of all, let me say sorry that the blog and the site have been silent for the last couple weeks without an apparent reason. Sometimes life moves fast, and that has certainly been the case for me lately. Many reached out through different channels and tried to figure out what the heck is going on, and today I’m finally able to write something up.
Unfortunately, the announcement I have to make might not be what you’d like to hear. Effective immediately, I won’t be able to maintain Uncensored any longer. I’m moving on to a new chapter in my life, personally and professionally, which is too demanding and important for me to write articles every day, play the game, and code for the site. I was very conflicted because I love the project, but it’s simply not something I cannot do. I guess that’s part of growing up.
I will write up some more stuff about what’s going to happen with the site in the coming days. I don’t plan to take it down entirely, just some aspects won’t be updated as frequently, or at all. The most obvious casualty is the blog, where I’ve written up 95% of the posts myself. I do however plan to keep the Toolbase updated as best as possible and have the board and Discord open for those that value Uncensored as alternative, non-official, and fully independent discussion platform.
I also plan to publish a more extensive farewell. But for now, this should just serve as an announcement so you guys know what’s going on. Let me just say that the last four years covering the game have been an absolute blast. Uncensored was my first major “hit” in the interwebs and will always be more than a project in my résumé. How it has grown to 100,000 freaking users per months from scratch is just insane. And what I’ve learned in web development, community management, and other aspects is invaluable.
Thanks for this incredible journey, which now unfortunately has to end.
