Hello everyone.

I'm sorry to have to break your Christmas with such news as this, but we've finally made the decision. IO is going to close.

Damn that was a hard sentence to get over with. I'll miss this place a lot, everything we've build since little over a year ago... But it's the right thing, we aren't active enough to stay alive as a clan on our own.

Well as the people who know me are used to, I love colleting statistics. So here's a nice list lol:
2 715 - Unique visitors per month (average).
35 295 - Total number of unique people visiting our website.
89 777 - Total number of pages loaded by those visitors.
6 906 - Average number of pages loaded every month.
7 020 - Number of people visiting our website in August (busiest month).
13 629 - Number of pages viewed by our visitors in August.
1 210 - Number of posts in August (averaging nearly 40 posts every day).
6 514 - Number of posts we made in total (excluding this one).
4 140 - Number of posts by Tiny and me (omfg lol).
18.93 - Ammount of posts per day (averaged - and im surprised Shocked).
12d15h - Time I spent on this forum.
12d02h - Time Tiny spent on this forum (owned =D).
367 - Total numer of topics (Me: 171 - Tiny: 61).
39% - Traffic from France (last 500 visits).
25% - Traffic from Mother Russia (last 500..).
14% - Traffic from Italy (WTF do italians do here Shocked)
6% - Traffic from me - aka traffic from the netherlands Tongue
55 - Posts by the most posting non-clanmember (and who has never been in). Gratz Peter Sillie, you just made it into the top-10 of most active posters!
838 - Number of posts we made in the Nr.100 topic, but we'll go to 1000!
Just over 1 year - Time IO lived.

Allright I guess that's enough for now lol. Here is our stats center if you want to see more: http://io.smfforfree3.com/index.php?action=stats
And the statcounter statistics are public too, though I didn't know untill i checked like a second ago Tongue http://statcounter.com/project/standard/stats.php?project_id=5399952&guest=1

Then let's move on to more serious business.

I would like to thank everyone who has been supporting the clan in any way for the past year. Especially I'll be naming our members and ex-members (not in order):
- Tiny for his friendship, even before we were in W.B= together (which was before we started IO, for the less informed). Also I'd like to thank him hugely for his sublime leadership the last months.
- Wh!pP3r for bringing in very good ideas often and cheering me up so often (no matter what was on my mind, I'd be sure to get rid of it within 3 minutes when he was on msn).
- Diho for the nice programming work, both for this website, OACon, and other projects we worked on and are working on.
- Oleg for always trying to bring in new ideas to improve things.
- BigDaddy for being so cheerfull (might sound silly, but it's something not everyone is Wink )
- Titanium also for being cheerfull and nice to play with.

Then everyone who contributed to our clan by being a nice part of the family:
- strAnger
- VagabondBGC
- AssY
- SamSpeed
- drunken
- Oxyd
- Pain
- Cheers
- BlueSKY
- Bonchi Osamu

That you don't have a special description doesn't mean we don't like you Wink Tongue Without you IO wouldn't be where it is right now (and I'm not referring to the fact that we're closing now lol... you get what I mean).


Then I'd like to announce that Tiny and I will move to our 'cousin-clan': *Revolution. Oleg, BigDaddy, Titanium: You are welcome as well Smiley (we've talked with Stoner already). More details on the internal forums soon (tomorrow ifnot tonight). I also want to appologise that we have to close IO, and maybe that we didn't discuss this with you but just made the decision. I believe it was the right thing though, we wouldn't have done it if we had any doubt. Sorry if I make you sad by this though.
For Bonchi and BlueSKY, I'm sorry but you did not show enough activity on the forums. Because of that, I can't offer the same invitation to you I'm afraid. You are free to apply on your own of course.
Btw to oleg/daddy/tita: You are, ofcourse, also free to do whatever you prefer, if you would rather stay clanless or join another clan we're completely fine with that. It's just that we didn't want to leave our members without an option to join us in a future family. I've experienced once when the rM leader closed the clan and just deleted the website, it was quite a sad day... Didn't want to do that to our loved members, it's sad enough IO isn't active enough to exist on it's own.

This website will remain for as long as possible, after that I hope the internet archive (archive.org) will have records of this website... It should already have but I can't find anything at the moment. Else I'll try to backup the website some day, just a view-only version (smfforfree doesn't let me download the database), so we can at least read it. Reply if you would want this.
The permissions will remain the same, our current members will be able to view the private forums in the future and everyone else won't. Old members could be concidered though (just reply or pm me).

So... well that's pretty much it I think... could be I forgot tons of stuff, but don't think so lol. If someone else has some impressive speech, I'll quote you on the bottom of this post so people don't have to read the entire topic to see it (not sure if we'll get many replies though.. but incase).

Hmm I did forget one thing: I should thank SMF For Free for the hosting with only now and then some minor problems. For someone who just needs a simple though quite customisable forum it's a very nice start Smiley I wouldn't start the forum here again now (because I can't edit the PHP and backup the database myself), but I'm not as newb anymore so for others who are less experienced with this stuff it's still recommendable ^^

Best wishes for the future to all, especially with the new year around the corner.

Sincerely,
RMF (aka Luc)
Proud to be :) ex-clanleader and website administrator of IO.


PS: I used nicknames rather than our real names incase someone prefers his name not to be known to the whole world.
PS2: I forgot to add: if anyone got any questions at all, please ask them (just reply)!! Smiley

Idk what to say more, you quite said everything for public, and i need some minutes to be able to write correctly again.
To my mates: i will answer in private.

But i must do a little post me too, there's not anything to add really, except that i think:

I wanted to thanks RMF for everything he did for the clan, without him, IO wouldn't have existed, and wouldn't have been what it was. Thanks.

And, i don't need to add anything else here.

Yeah it might be a surprise for many people... and that's why we needed to close. It was too silent here, and we just couldn't make things work out with trainings and such.

Really sad News, IOs was a nice clan because was formed by nice people.

In any way clan is closed but all IO member remain!

Hope to see you all on OA again, not matter the tag or clan, what I desire is see again mr. Andrew, mr. RMF, mr. Tiny, mr. Oleg, mr. Cheers and all others play and have fun!

In fact that's not a goodbye, is a SEE YOU ON OA!!!!!

Dear IOs,

RMF, Tiny, B!gDaddy, OLEG, BlueSky and Bonchi!

I will stop visiting this site now Sad
I hope, that we still see us on other sites (*r, GoD, oa) and servers.
Also i hope, that you all will find a clan, which fit your needs.

CU

Peter
