In a recent forum post I mentioned a little work is going on behind-the-scenes here. I'll stay vague for now to build suspense, so feel free to suspend yourself. But I do want to note that we're retiring a couple of really old-school features that have been part of the site for a couple of decades now. First is the .plan tracker. At one point this was an amazing source of game news, as many developers used their .plans to directly communicate with their audience. This has obviously been superseded by Twitter and other social media, and the use of .plan files has fallen by the wayside (for the record, the last three posts the tracker recorded were in August 2013, February 2007, and December 2005). The other obsolete function that's departing is the LAN Parties tracker. At one point LAN parties were major happenings, but once again the internet has taken its toll, and it's now so easy to play with others online that lugging computers from place to place has ceased to be a thing (ironic, since said lugging is 1000% easier in these days of LCD/LED monitors). For those with a remaining interest in such face-to-face gaming, the LAN Party List Website is still online, though this helps illustrate the point, since it lists fewer than a dozen events still to come in 2019.
