TO RYAN- please read.....
« on: April 28, 2018, 10:16:15 PM »
Ryan-

Many years ago you created something brilliant that changed a lot of lives, afterwards you created a forum where people with the same interests could congregate and build relationships with one another...... Over the years this project became more known, more elaborate and more amazing.

The way everyone worked together towards the common goal was nothing like i have ever seen, all of a sudden the project took off to levels we didnt think we could reach....and we did it together!

On April 15th when the project disappeared we were shocked, not because something happened but more shocked because maybe you feel you can't come to us for help to fix the problem.....see Ryan, nothing on this project was done alone for very long, so why should you have to? All of us are willing to fight to keep something we love, that includes you....we love the fact we can call you the creator of this project, but don't forget we also call you our friend. Maybe i need to step out of my screen name and speak to you "Dave" to "Ryan"so you can begin to trust that we want to put our heads together & figure out anything we have to , no matter how long it takes to result in what everyone wants back...our project.

We need one thing from you though- we NEED to know as people who are just as invested in this journey the following:

     What is the future of our project?
     What specifically led to our failure?
     What can we do to help YOU so you aren't going through this alone?

Talk to us, come to discord, reply to our post, text me.....do anything

Your FRIEND,

Dave

...and the entire SSF member group

Hi Ryan,

I've been on this forum since 2011, and you know me well from our time as staff together from 2012 through 2017.

I was very disappointed to hear that on April 15th, the Skyscraper project had suddenly gone off the air. At the time, I was hoping it was merely down for maintenance or there were issues on the server which would hopefully be resolved soon. However, it has become clear to me that this project has been cast into an uncertain future.

As Dave has stated in his letter to you, this forum has been a great center of collaboration and working together to achieve a common goal of a functional building simulator. I sincerely hope that it can continue in that role in the future.

In order for the future of the project to be known, we need to know your input. Like Dave said, we all have the same three questions we'd like to ask you. We want to make sure that whatever you are going through, you have 941 members behind you who have your back at all times. I know that as a forum, we can get through this, and we hope to hear from you soon.

Whatever you decide, if you want our help, we will not let you down. We would like you to join the SSF Discord chat and keep in touch with several of our members. Hopefully, together we can get through this tough time.

     What is the future of our project?
     What specifically led to our failure?
     What can we do to help YOU so you aren't going through this alone?

For 1, I don't know at this point.  I want to continue the work on it badly, but due to stuff that happened, that's been cast into doubt.  I'm glad that you consider it "our" project, since I don't feel so alone then.
Nothing led to your failure as admins or members, it was really just me who's the failure.  This is a big project and I understand that it's not just me who's involved, part of the agony with me was the content people have created for it, that has been mainly on the forum over the years.
I don't really know how you can help me at this point, but mainly by being supportive of me during what's become the worst period of my life.
I can elaborate on those if you need.  Thanks.

Ryan- If you are comfortable elaborating we want to know what occurred....you say we cant help you but maybe talking about it may relieve some of the stress and it will help us understand what it is  as well so we arent thinking of different ways to contact you in which im sure you are sick of

It's good that this forum is back active again. At first, I was also thinking that this forum was only inactive temporarily but I was feared that something bad happened to the simulator when I saw that the Wikipedia page was edited to say "inactive." Luckily that this forum can be back active again.

I do admit that I may not be active as much as I did during 2010-2011 due to being more busy, but I will try to make new buildings and content if I can.

It's probably a little late to say this, but I figured I would at least get this off of my chest.


Ryan, you have created an amazing program, which in turn blossomed into a community that I am proud to call my home. I've watched the project evolve continuously, and am always impressed at whatever comes next. Also, I am very proud of the community for contributing to the success of the project. I'm not sure where my life would have been without the influence from this particular community.


As Shady had mentioned, I am here for you if you need it.

Amazing post NEE, I loved reading every word of that and I'm sure Ryan will too when he reads it.
