Warren Ellis is closing down the forums at The-Engine.net

THE ENGINE will close a little before midnight UK time on August 31 2007.

The first year was about getting creators together and facilitating conversations that didn't have anywhere else to go. The second year was about just providing people with an interesting place to talk. Two years is enough. Time to move on.

Which is a great pity, but better to go out on a bang than a whimper. Warren, like the net, never stands still. For those of you who never came across this wonderful forum before, go and check it out before it shuts for good.
