Thing is, I could say it's because of time, and that is partially true (I'm moving in February to a new country for an exciting job), but above all I've grown tired of playing games involving rankings, comparisons and such. There are other equally rewarding ways of discovering music. I'm also I bit more interested in Brazilian sounds and artists, something the forum doesn't embrace.
I'll try and finish The Song Collectors though, it'll be nice to bow out without any duties behind.
Update: Bluecherry contacted me to take over Ludus, which I happily approved.
Also, Carbon is going to run new Album Cup installments with his usual competence.
