Hey folks,

I'm sure you figured this out by now, but I haven't been around much... at all, really. Sometimes I stop in to Gemp and play a few games, but they're getting to be few and far between.

I've considered selling the server, or at least passing down the reigns, but I've got so much custom spaghetti code weaved in to the forums and wiki that I'm not really comfortable passing it on. I'd also have to deal with the difficult task of removing various bits of personal information, as the server that runs TLHH has run other personal projects in the past.

Fortunately, the ads on the wiki pages pay the server expenses. If you don't like them, remember you shouldn't see them if you're logged in to the forum, or use an adblocker. I'm totally fine with that.

So in any case, I'll try to stop in from time to time to check if the server is running, but it's unlikely that I'll be fixing any typos in the wiki or whatnot. GCCG should still be running too, even though nobody uses it. I miss those early days.  :P

I've got a few scripts in place to try to keep things stable and I run security updates on the server from time to time. If the site goes completely down, feel free to send me an email! I check my Kralik email at least... once a month? #-o

If there are any moderation problems, maybe someone in the community could set up a poll of some sort to elect new moderators. I haven't been keeping up so I don't know offhand who is trustworthy.

Keep on enjoying this fabulous game!

Kralik,

Thank your for providing this place for us over the years!

I haven't seen any pressing issues recently, but I check the site every couple of days and would be willing to help moderate if it becomes necessary.

I have nightly backups of the server that are duplicated off-site. There's a glitch where PHP crashes from time to time, causing TLHH and the wiki to go down. I've recently added my forum email address to my phone, so I should be quicker to respond when/if that happens. There's also the domain registrar email address which will go straight to me.
