Thank you and Goodbye

Hello everyone

Proposed timetable for website closure
 

  • The SussexScene forum will close at 19.00 today, Tues 25 Aug. It will be switched off and not be reinstated. * Update - Will remain viewable until Mon 31 Aug, the PM system will remain open until then, the forum will remain open until 20.00 hours approx 25 Aug.
  • Other areas of the SS website, e.g. escort directory, will go offline on Mon 31 August and not be reinstated.
  • On 1st September, the entire contents of the SS website will be wiped and the SussexScene.com domain will stop working.

SussexScene has been online for 6 years, since early Sept 2009. We hope you have found it useful.

However we no longer have the time or motivation to maintain it, upgrade it and moderate it to the high standards we set ourselves in the past. It has become a chore, increasingly time consuming and far too invasive of our everyday lives. Complaints about content posted by members reached a record high last week, and complaints continued to be received yesterday, soon after the re-introduction of the forum. I am sorry to those members I have not had time to reply to. 

The future of the website has been under consideration for several months - since the temporary closure then reinstatement of the website earlier this year. This month, with our server contract about to expire, it came back to the top of the agenda. The final decision to close was made a few days ago. 

Over the past year we have been averaging about 2,000 unique visitors a day across all our content, forum and directory, and averaging around 20,000 page views a day. Based on available online website traffic ranking data, I believe we are the most popular regional 'punting' website in the UK, with more traffic than even the Little Black Book website, which covers the UK punting capital of Manchester and the North West - and we have hugely more traffic than the equivalent Kent and Dorset sites. For a small part of the country like Sussex, with only a small personal services industry, we have punched above our weight for a long time. For that, a big thank you to all our loyal members who have lended their support by logging in so regularly and contributing.

I'd especially like to thank our FBSM members - the Sensual Massage forum users have been brilliant with their adult conduct and regular contributions.

All the best for the future to all thumbsup.gif 

For those with an interest: Final year stats lifted today (Sept and Oct 2014 visitor numbers are distorted by spammers from China which were eliminated by November with new anti spam software)
