I do not want a situation where the wiki becomes unreliable (if it hasn't already) or blocks enthusiasm for another site or group of sites which may fill its role (yes, there are other wikis out there). We do not yet have a system admin, nor anyone willing to take leadership in the editorial role… a role which I feel the guilt of having short changed for years now.

I will hopefully be able to completely archive the system to give to volunteers who may come forward after the shutdown, and be asking River Valley to replace the wiki with a shutdown notification page.

That would be a good thing! Hope it all works out.

Good Luck,
