Hi guys, I am sorry to inform you that I have finally managed to screw it all up. My last two posts were about a possible relaunch of Streetfiles, they signalized enthusiasm about a new beginning. Now, I have to tell you that I have failed to realize these plans in an early stage. This is what you need to know:
Streetfiles is going down on the 30th of April

Yes, we are going to switch the site completely off on that day. This is not one of my sneaky tricks to grab your attention. Nor is it an April fool hoax. This is the bitter truth. This is the end, my friend. Goodbye SF, hello RL.

We have switched off comments here to avoid unnecessary discussions. Our decision is final, we really mean it. We have already checked out all kinds of alternatives, but no chance.

It was a tough month with lot’s of exhausting discussions, endless e-mail threads and sleepless nights. I am totally burned out by all this fighting. In the last weeks I could barely think of anything else. My brain was like in an endless loop running hotter and hotter. This whole project is totally poisoned for now, it’s full of hate and bad karma. Something inside me broke. I had to stop riding this dead horse. I also could not stall the relaunch any longer, so I pulled the emergency break, even though a kind of trade-off was insight at the end.

Have something to say? Write your message of condolence to hello@streetfiles.org. We will publish a selection in the next blog entry.
