After five years of running the site, I’m ready to pass it on to someone else. Due to the way it’s hosted and because there are not enough built-in moderator tools to do everything through the web interface (like creating new tags and hats), it would need to be moved to a new server/VPS that the new maintainer controls. The domain, Twitter account, and GitHub repo (which can be transferred to a new organization) would go along with it.
The new maintainer would have to pay for a new server/host going forward, and continue the domain renewal ($95/year). They would also need the time and energy for moderation, light administrative duties, and advancing the Rails codebase to add new features, fix bugs, clean up the code, and all that other stuff.
I don’t know how we will collectively decide who to transfer everything to, but I guess I’ll start by asking if anyone is even up for taking it over. I’m not in a rush to move it, and I can help with much of the migration process if needed.
