Post news RSS What happened to the mod

TL:DR I (the lead) got diagnosed with an incurable autoimmune disease in April 2017

Hi.

It's been a while, the mod hasn't been updated since May 1st 2017.

You're probably wondering why, and here's why;

I have Crohn's Disease and became disabled.

In early April 2017, while I was recovering from removing my wisdom teeth, I developed a very bad lower gastrointestinal bleed. After about a 5 day stay in the hospital, I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, and it seems to be a pretty moderate / severe case.

My Crohn's causes severe abdominal pain, extreme fatigue, vomiting, trouble eating, weight loss, anemia, and many other fun things. It's also caused me to lose my gallbladder, kicking off the first of several surgeries. More recently in April of this year, I had a month long stay in the hospital after an abscess scare turned into a perforated colon and I almost had to have it removed. A month in a bed has also severely deconditioned my body so it has also left me disabled. I had several surgeries in the hospital and more since, and I'm scheduled to have more very soon to fix complications from those surgeries.

This is why development on this project has all but stopped, and I'm sorry this happened. I still have a team behind me and am very eager to continue working, I just don't know how physically able I will be to do so.
