I recently reached the traditional UK retirement age for men (65), I’m “officially” retired (as far as the government is concerned), and I’ve now decided to retire from crypto-related activities as well. Except for hodling.
Some of the old-timers in here (>6 months) might remember me saying similar things before, but this time I’m going to make it stick.
What prompted this decision now? The tipping point was when I decided the wiki needed a redesign and started to look at reskinning it but realized my heart is not in any kind of technical work these days, so I might as well give it up. But I first started having vague thoughts along these lines over a year ago.
As well as dropping the wiki work, I will also stop making regular contributions here on the forum and in other channels. So that mainly concerns technical help, though I was never very good at that anyway! I’ll continue to look in here and elsewhere from time to time.
Until someone else can take over the wiki hosting I’ll continue to do what’s necessary, but no more. I’ll stop taking donations either when the hosting is taken over, or when what I’ve already paid out is covered, whichever comes first.
Reskinning the wiki is not really necessary but I do believe that the home page needs a big shake-up, and it would be great if someone was willing to take that on.
Also, however, the content could do with updating in various areas. The markup language is not difficult, though the home page code is a little messy due to the use of nested tables. (The main reason for reskinning was to get away from tables.)
Anyway, that’s all up to you guys now! Hello, anyone out there??
