Well, it’s looking like the sad news we received two weeks ago regarding the July 27th imminent death of TORParse might be taking a turn in the right direction. It caused a stir amongst a reasonable amount of the playerbase, who expressed their love of the TORParse features, and their general feelings of sadness of it going away.
Late last week, “James” the creator/owner/operator of TORParse posted on his blog:
First and foremost, TORParse won’t actually be going anywhere! There has been a lot of interest from a lot of different people in continuing the project, and I appreciate everyone that has contacted me. If you have not yet received a response from me, I apologize for the long response time and will reply when I can (it may take me a few days). So that everyone is aware, no deals with anyone have been made yet, but I’m confident that one will be made.
There is a possibility that transitioning the site will go past the original date I had specified of 27 July, but I will continue to manage the site until the transition takes place as to minimize downtime as much as possible.
Lastly, there has been a lot of interest in making the code for the site and parser open source. While it is something I seriously thought about doing, I have decided that the code for the project will not be open-sourced. This is subject to change later and whoever takes over the project may change this decision if they wish.
I’ll post another update when I have some more information.
Personally, I couldn’t be happier to hear this news!
