Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the hosting site which runs both of my online ballbusting games has changed the terms of their free plan, such that it's no longer feasible to keep the sites up. (The database is now under much tighter restrictions, which makes it impossible to keep things running at any kind of scale.) They'll be closing at some point within the next week or two, when the database gets automatically shut off.
I'm willing to hand the sites over to someone else, if they want to pay for an expanded database to keep things running (~$10/mo), but I'm not going to pay for it myself or even accept donations – my online anonymity is important to me, and paying for the web hosting would require me to reveal various personal info.
Even though I haven't done much with either site for over a year, I'm sad to see them go, especially since I know there are still plenty of people using them. I hope you all enjoyed them while they lasted :)
P.S. A final stats report: between the two sites, there have been over 750K battles and 250K ballpoppings. Pretty impressive for a pretty niche kink.
P.P.S. I took a long break on the Pokemon BB blurb requests (surprise surprise from me, right?), but I'm hoping to start up again later this week. Hang tight!
