Unfortunately, after 3 years I have decided to close talk.bindpose.com down.
Even though, there hasn’t been a whole lot going on there, I have thoroughly enjoyed talking to people, sharing what I know and learning from everybody else at the same time.
Probably as expected, the reason for shutting it down is really just maintenance. Without going into details, keeping it running has been a bit of a thorn in my side for a while now, so I’ve been looking forward to be able to put that behind me.
At this point, I’ve disabled registration, but I’ll leave the content up for the next month and I will shut everything down on the 6th of March 2021. If there’s anything you find useful on there and would like to come back to in the future, please back it up somewhere, as I will be deleting everything.
I want to say huge thanks to everybody who supported talk.bindpose.com at the beginning and shared it with their rigging friends! Without those people, there would literally be zero useful information on the website. So thank you!
With the popularity of services like discord and of course the excellent FOSS matrix protocol, maybe they would be better suited for hosting a similar community to talk.bindpose.com. So if anybody has a server like that set up, please shoot me an email, as I would be happy to join.
P.S. The irony of this being the first post after the one below, is not lost on me.
