It's been a while since Project Spark was abandoned and it's been a while that Sparkshare runs and tries to give some hope to the remaining sparkers around... We've tried over a year to keep that boat afloat and we have to face it, it is over.
The statistics clearly show that SparkShare isn't used anymore (if it ever was) and we cannot provide help to new comers anymore. The community of former players isn't anymore, the great sparkers have left for better horizons.
The multiple windows 10 updates, day by day, make the Project Spark experience worse in a point where I couldn't launch Project Spark on the lastest skip ahead update to Redstone 4.
The forum isn't active, except maybe for a few adventurers that are curious and would love to test Project Spark, quickly stopped in their enthousiasm by the impossibility to log in and our inability to help them.
This board, the SparkShare database and the statistic engine have shrunk and are now all hosted on the same server I own since years and where I run Sick Rabbit Studios
instead of their own servers, to avoid the costs for me. To be totally honest, SparkShare doesn't cost me anything anymore, maybe a little storage place on the server if anything, but behond that nothing, not even time anymore, as I have totally stopped developing SparkShare's client since long.
When an animal is badly hurt I would always try to help it. If its death is unevitable, I'd rather help it out of its misery rather that watch it slowly and painfully die alone. And I think this is the question I'm asking myself right now concerning SparkShare.
What do you think (if anybody replies it would cheer me up a little)?
