I hate to make a statement like this. But I have not the time nor energy to spend maintaining this wonderful server nor its wonderful community. The real world is hitting me hard, and I am overwhelmed with everything. In addition to this, our Chief Admin, NeonDin0saur was forced to resign due to his work situation and other real-life issues. I am in a similar position. When he was on, I could rely on there being a staff member or two always on the server. With him leaving, and Monaxide not having anything to do, and therefore finding other servers, I no longer have the energy nor time to keep this server going.
I have been more blessed by the community, the generosity, and the overall wonderful family atmosphere that Serenity has had for it's life. However, without having dedicated staff who are able to be on constantly, it does not matter how generous the community is, nor how wonderful the server may be.
It hurts me more than any of you will ever know to writing this right now, being I have had multiple servers and they have all ended this way. I will wrestle with myself and with the other Owners and staff regarding this decision. But for right now, Serenity will have it's last open day on March 1, 2014.
I love you guys, and hope that this is not permanent
