For decisions made above my control, the Host Your Own section will be closed permanently on Friday, January 6, 2017. To say the least, I'm disappointed that this is happening, but the prime of Host Your Own passed before I took over the job. I've enjoyed moderating it and doing some shows myself, but the time has come to let this join GRECO and apeminkie into the realms of retirement.
I had meant for a while to do one more show before the section closed down forever, but graduate school life has kept me so busy that it just never came together. Life happens.
As it is, I thank everyone for playing and for letting Chelsea transition me from recapper to HYO moderator since I joined graduate school, but it was not meant to be. I appreciate everyone who has hosted, including the weekly pricing game version I tried, but after 7 weeks, there seemed to be no interest to continue. Thanks for your participation.
That said, the section will probably disappear from the main page on January 6, so if you have anything you want to save, this would be the time to check the threads.
