Due to the recent issues with Stack Overflow, I've decided to retire this project. Or, rather, retire my participation with it.

I'd be happy to pass this repo on to others who want to keep the site alive to help folks. If you'd like to volunteer, please leave a comment on this issue. I'll give folks who have contributed to the site in the past the first crack.

As for the idownvotedbecau.se domain, I'll have to see about how to transfer that.

There's no rush on this. I'd like to get it done by January next year.

Yes, stackoverflow wants to be more new user friendly but honestly they lack the tools for people trying to help out. I agree (to some extend) that the hostname might be a little different, but I'm still very surprised stackoverflow does not have something like this themselves. Hope it continues in some way

@WillSullivan Are you going to keep this going? If not I'm willing to take it on if you have to pass on the torch. If not, thanks for the resource!

I am going to pass it on, have looked into transferring the domain, it's just low on my list of things that depress me but I'll eventually have to deal with eventually. And I need to figure out how I determine who to cede the domains to.

@WillSullivan I understand, hope what ever is going on for you gets better.

@WillSullivan I completely feel you man. I have been having a lot of domains and yes, I know how it feels. Happy to take over and if you wanna make sure it needs to stay alive! 🤘🏻 I know it's a hard decision... Let us all know! 😔 We'll take care of it.

Let it drop. Downvoters are a disease that cause helpful people to cease sharing their knowledge - they need to be eliminated, not supported.

@gitcnd That's an example of a "bad downvoter", and not at all what the point of a downvote is. The point of a downvote is to indicate to other answerers that this question is not well written, needs more information, etc. This is also why when you downvote a post on SO, a popup appears -

Please consider adding a comment if you think this post can be improved.

Downvoting is not meant to discourage people and to make them stop asking questions; it's more for constructive criticism and not wasting everyone's time. If someone has put absolutely 0 effort into making a question, or it's so misinformative that you can't understand it, then it's a good idea to put a downvote and add a comment telling the question asker what needs to change. upvoting a comment made by someone else about what the question needs/doesn't need, or flagging the question. However, when a good question appears, then people upvote the question so more people see it and can answer it.

@WillSullivan have you found someone yet?

Sadly I haven't. I should have time at the end of the year, and should get off my butt and do it. I have a metric I'll use to decide who from those that raised their hands, I just need to take the time to do it.
