    Happy Birthday UKMIX!

    As we bring the current era of UKMIX to a close, how fitting that we turn the site off on its 20th birthday!

    As a reminder, the site will remain read only whilst all of this work is going on - if you need to make contact during the shutdown (sorry Trump, but the UKMIX shutdown is bigger than the US governmental one), you can do so via our social media channels.

    I'm getting ready to disable logging in and posting. Hard to predict exactly when it will happen but should be soon after 8pm. If you get logged out, I suggest you don't try to log back in and post any message - you will probably lose whatever you try to post.

    I was 25 years old when I created this site, so it's been a huge part of my life, although one that I neglected somewhat since around 15 years ago, and completely neglected in the past five years. I expect many new members only know me as the absentee founder. Sorry for that; but at least you didn't need to put up with my attempts at moderating or my opinion in general. Although, on that last point, I'm afraid you're going to see my opinion one final time when the site goes offline.

    I'm extremely grateful to the community who helped create, maintain and grow UKMIX, to Amir who helped found it did the chart updates for many years, to Matthew who was instrumental in creating the community, and I am grateful to Wayne now for taking on the challenge of running the site. If you have any sense, you won't wait 20 years to appoint your successor.

    See you on the other side!

    Ok, nobody should be able to log in now. If all goes well, this should be the last post before we make a huge backup of all the posts and transfer it over to Wayne.

    Unfortunately, we had a problem with the security certificate not related to the transfer, just bad timing. Maybe the site was grumbling about being moved! Anyway, it means there's no HTTPS for now, but it shouldn't matter if you can't log in...

    For anyone who has trouble viewing the site, the best thing is to use another browser. A lot of the issues should clear up after a few hours. Obviously if you can read this you're not affected, but in case anyone's asking you...
