There's no easy way to announce this. It is with a heavy heart that I announce Crysandrea's official close.
As has been true for some time, Crysandrea is in poor shape. To continue with the re-launch of Crysandrea would be commiting, at the very least, 2 years of the team's time and effort. As individuals, we've begun to move toward different life goals, and keeping Crysandrea alive is a task that is no longer realistic for either admin.
What's next? When the decision was made, I figured the most valuable thing we can leave as a legacy to the community would be: The community engine itself.
We're releasing all the source code to Crysandrea, along with a tutorial on how to get it going on a cheap server, so everyone can benefit from the trial and errors we've gone through over the past years in terms of creating an engine as opposed to inhereting one such as phpBB, vBulletin, Vanilla, SMF...
Pixeltweak has published the code, which can be downloaded below, along with a step-by-step video tutorial on how to setup Crysandrea on a basic server.
Best wishes and fond memories,
The Crysandrea Team
