Pixel Woods has had a long run, and I’ve learnt a lot about how not to script whilst building it. In fact, I’m still paying a monthly fee for my bad scripting.
So over the next week or two Pixel Woods will see a makeover. The goal is not to boost member numbers - admittedly it’s the opposite; my interests have moved on and I no longer have the time or will to make Pixel Woods pay for itself, as was my initial goal.
But I want to be loyal to those who have been loyal to the site, so I do not wish to simply pull the plug. Instead I’m going to gut the script and database and leave what is necessary for all existing users to keep their hard work and spent money, whilst saving myself more monthly fees than I dare mention.
It will be an ongoing process as I snip things away, watch the stats over a few days, repeat. We’ll see how it goes.
