Since March of 2005, Vanguard Crafters has been operated by me or by other volunteers to serve the community and the developers in Vanguard and the associated crafting community. I have not been actively involved in it’s operation for quite some time. The amount of link spam and the attacks on the wiki recently, paired with the decline in the size of the Vanguard community have led me to the difficult decision to shut it down.
If we are all honest with each other, the site is a shell of it’s former self, and the amount of effort by unpaid volunteers to keep it up has become unconscionable to ask for.
I want to apologize to those of you who still used the site. I know there are a loyal few. Please understand that the whole episode is very heartbreaking for those of us in the community that had hoped that Vanguard would succeed.
I’ve temporarily redirected the site’s traffic here for an explanation. I’ll be taking this down and shuttering the site permanently in the coming weeks.
Thanks so much to everyone who contributed over there over the last 5 years. I’m really sorry I let you all down in the end, but it was very much fun while it lasted. Best of luck to all of you and many happy loot drops!
