After a bit of thought, I've decided to shut down the Discuss comments platform.
My intentions were to build a community site with Discourse hooked in to the main website to both act as a comments platform for the posts and docs I publish, and slowly become a bit of a standalone forum for general discussion and support.
After a few years and admittedly very little promotion of the platform on my part, the costs of running another server separate from the main website just for this no longer make sense.
Going forward I'm not planning on implementing a comments system back into the main website since people can and do reach me on various forms of social media or via email on a regular basis, and there are better communities to find me lurking for support than my forum, such as:
All user data on the Discuss site will be deleted, I do not plan to migrate to anything else at this time.
