THE ENGINE will close  a little before midnight UK time 
on August 31 2007.

The first year  was about getting creators together and facilitating 
conversations that  didn't have anywhere else to go.  The second 
year was about just  providing people with an interesting place to 
talk.  Two years is  enough.  Time to move on.

So you've got three weeks to mine out the  place for the data you 
need, exchange contact details and all  that.

I've informed Andrew, the host, of my intent -- it's up to him  whether 
or not the Engine remains as a static archive, though I've told him  it's 
not necessary.  The search function has always been a bit weird,  so 
I'll be opening a thread for you to help each other find what you  need. will remain open -- in fact, I'll add a  forum 
function to it for those of you who want to stay together and stay  talking.

At this time, I have to extend my thanks both to Andrew, and to  my 
team of moderators, who took a lot of crap for no reward at all: Jessica,  
Maddie, Rachel, Ariana, Victoria, Melinda and Lauren made it a better  
place for me, and for all of you.  Also, I have to thank Charity, who  did 
the initial design and installation, Brian for providing the Engine  marks 
and logos, and Billy Gray for early mechanics and  troubleshooting.

As for me: well, as ever, there's a plan.  I won't  be out of the online 
community game for long.  News on that will follow  later in the month.

Thank you all.  It's been fun.
