who's who - news

March 19, 1998. What can I say. It's been fun. But now I'm not sure about the future of Who's Who. Maybe it's too hard to keep track of an ever expanding gaming community (industry employees included). Maybe it's because it's my senior year of high school, or because I'm just sad about losing the two hard drives which had the only recent copies of the Who's Who pseudo-database file..

Anyway, I'm putting Who's Who on indefinite hiatus. I may come back to it, but probably not. Simply, right now I can't truly be proud of Who's Who as a resource. When WW began almost nine months ago (tomorrow will be the quakEncyclopedia's 11th month anniversary), I updated every day or so. The community was smaller and more focused, id software was id software, ritual just began as hipnotic, and ION storm was just beginning to form. Now there's Valve and G.o.D., team gamespy and rebel boat rocker. I can't keep up with the quality that I would demand of myself.

As the future, I'm taking time off from serious webmastering to do other things and reconsider the main idea behind my sites, especially this one. Perhaps I'll size down the scope of WW, change it's focus entirely, or hand over the reins to someone else. Anyway, since I don't think people really visit this site, I'll have to say goodbye to Who's Who. It's been a lot of work, just for the sake of maintaining a simple people resource, but I don't regret a nanosecond. Thanks blue, dakota, bastard, the rest of the planetquake staff, and everyone else who ever mailed to say hello. -- Andrew "kolinahr" Wu
