Hello all,

I have been a member of Minecraft World Map for over seven years now, and I have seen the best and the worst of this site. Though I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, I can no longer comfortably moderate a site that has been entirely abandoned by the only person who has any control over any aspects of the site.

Skeight has failed to respond to any of my communication attempts for well over a year now. During this time, several critical issues have come up on the site, including but not limited to:

  1. Service Unavailability - Map rendering, the sole purpose of this site, has become unavailable for months at a time.
  2. Broken Moderation Functions - Most forum tools have been broken for the moderator permission group after failing to update the forums.
  3. Upload Bugs - Users have gone months completely unable to upload their maps.
  4. Data Breach - Skeight has failed to comply with or acknowledge any account deletion requests following a crippling data breach.
  5. Lack of Updates - Minecraft World Map has not supported any of the latest versions of Minecraft.
  6. Forum Spam - Minecraft World Map's forums have been filled with spam over the past 4 years. No action has been taken to prevent this.
Though Minecraft World Map is somewhat functional after Skeight read (and only read) a private message I sent to his Reddit account, it still contains numerous exploits and bugs that have permanently damaged its reputation. I would love to stick with a site I've invested over 320 hours of my time into moderating, but I cannot comfortably remain in a position where users expect me to have more power over the site than I am actually provided.

Since the beginning, I have hoped the best for this site, but I can no longer provide the users of Minecraft World Map with the false sense of hope that the site will be resurrected. After this post, I will be demoting myself, and will no longer be speaking officially as moderator of Minecraft World Map.
