    This site has been around for half a decade. Pretty crazy.

    Five years is sort of one of those milestone anniversaries isn't it? Wish I could have had something better to mark the day. Better luck next time eh?

    In lieu of anything great, here's some news about the end of the alpha:

    I'm running out of things to do, so that means it's almost done. A small test site was made available to other devs and whoever saw me posting about it on our discord. Still planning on deleting everything mentioned in the previous post. But here it is again:

    • Users not active in the last two years will be deleted
    • Tags that contain no wallpapers will be deleted
    • Reported wallpapers will be deleted
    • User notifications will be deleted
    • Subscription notices older than three months will be deleted

    I'm heading off to Japan for a bit next month. I'd like to have the new site launched before that, but to be real, that probably won't happen. Also not looking at blowing up my vacation with issues that I know will pop up.

    As always, thanks for sticking by! Here's to at least another few years!

    Cant believe its already been 5 years. I remember being pretty bummed out when Wallbase shut down. Thanks for the hard work!

    5 years already, huh. Thats an odd feeling for sure.

    Enjoy your vacation man, you've earned it! :)

    Sneaky Edit: @CyberSickness said:

    Does this includes wallbase too?

    No. Wallbase started... uh, not sure exactly when actually. But it was some years before Wallhaven was even an idea.
