Think you have what it takes to design the best level on SMW Central? Haven't seen the thread yet? Go here, read through the rules, and test your skill. The deadline is Feb. 25th, so start preparing your entries!
We were unhappy with how Nightfall was (or rather, how it wasn't) progressing. Real life trouble, combined with the pressure of users, became too much for Boom, forcing him to leave the community.
With the project in my hands, I had two options: Keep developing Nightfall or bring SMWC back to life. Knowing that I would never be able to turn Nightfall into anything nearly as good as SMWC, I chose the latter option.
We're terribly sorry for all this.
(Also, Boom encourages those who use IRC to keep visiting #nightfall and regard it as SMWC's official channel.)
