Default Important - please read

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ




I regret to say this, but I have just now received a takedown notice from the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and the Metropolitan Police for PimpsStreet.com.




The letter states that the website does not comply with UK laws and they want me to either ensure the problems are fixed, or take the website down within the next 48 hours. If neither is done they will proceed to take take legal action to have the website shut down.




There is really very little I can do because there problem with the website is that there are minors playing. There is no real way for me to identify who is a minor and who is not, without hunting down each person individually.


The website is also being run from the UK (I am a British citizen), so I cannot get past this nor do I have the power or knowledge to fight this.




This now means I have no choice but to comply and shut down the website.


This is really a sad day because the website has been running since January 2005 and only just now have we been faced with any kind of legal problems.




The current rounds will continue to run as they are for the next 48 hours, but on Thursday 3rd April, at Midnight the website will be deleted off the server.




Players who have purchased subscriptions or credits in the past 30 days will be refunded by next week.




I am very sorry the site has come to an end like this but, I will be back with a new game (which complies with all laws) in a few months time.




It's been great fun and a pleasure running this site and having all of you as players and I hope to see you all soon at my new game.


April Fools! ;)

Could this have been the reason why people stopped playing?
