YourTurnMyturn.com will stop on August 31, 2023

 (Friday August 26 2022)

Dear Players,

An inconvenient and sad news: YourTurnMyTurn.com is going to quit in 1 year.

The reason is that the underlying software of the site is outdated and a complete rebuild is needed to keep the site up and running for a long time and due to health reasons Bram Schoonhoven (owner and developer of the site) is not able to do this anymore.

We have always hosted our site with 1 party and that party stopped, so the sites have to move to another hoster. During the run-up to the move we found out that both the php and database version as well as the basic code are very outdated and all the code needs to be reworked to be able to work for a longer period of time. We tried to do that step by step, but came to the conclusion that that was not wise under the circumstances. And therefore we have chosen to stop and to announce this early.

Within a few days we will start removing the possibility to become a VIP and all current VIPs will be made VIP until the end of August 2023. We are going to do our very best to keep the site up and running until August 31, 2023.

We hope for your understanding and would especially like to thank all the players who have been playing here for so long for all the fun and camaraderie.

Regards,

Bram

Thank you!

Comment of mahtomo (09-09-2022, 19:53):
I am Ottmar/Mathomo one of the admins of brettspielnetz.de, the German partner site of yourturnmyturn.com.
We decided today that we will continue to run our game site independently with Bram's blessing (https://www.brettspielnetz.de/news.php?newsnumber=168). You are cordially invited to join us! We have a number of international players at our site who can cope with the German menus etc. at our site. Give it a try!
Some games are different at our site, some you might miss, but we will offer the wordgame with English dictionary at our site too (but it will take a while).
We will keep you posted!
And at this point also many thanks to Bram for the many years of good cooperation!

Comment of Marianne (10-09-2022, 21:11):
@Mathomo, we wish you a lot of luck and we hope that your plans to continue your site will succeed. goodluck.gif

Comment of mahtomo (17-09-2022, 19:49):
Don't give up, don't be too sad! The German site brettspielnetz.de, which is (more or less) a clone of the English site will continue. There is Carcassone and nearly all the games that you can play here.
Please have look at the forum, where I posted the comparison.
Give it a try!

Comment of stefano (18-09-2022, 10:20):
Just seen this! Sorry that the site is closing. Thanks to Bram and the other organisers for a great and enjoyable experience for, in my case, the last 10 years. Best wishes to Bram and all.

Comment of tuttel (18-09-2022, 14:35):
Hello all. I am tuttel and captain of the team Just for fun on Brettspielnetz. It's a pity that this site will end next year. I had many nice tournaments and team games here.
But you are welcome to come to Brettspielnetz, play there, participate in tournaments or even join my team.
I would be glad if we would meet again on Brettspielnetz and also in my team.

Comment of Palmreader (24-09-2022, 03:06):
Sorry to hear of this decision but understand it is necessary ... this site has been a wonderful source of enjoyment to me for many years ... Thank you for those happy years ... God bless you in your future endeavors ... David Rece

Very sad to see this. Thank you Bram for all the fun games.

Comment of seachica (30-09-2022, 21:21):
Sad news. I have enjoyed so many games here. Thank you, Bram, for all the hours of enjoyment. And thank you Mahtomo, for continuing the German site. I will give it a try. I don't speak German, but I can work my way around that!

Comment of mahtomo (01-10-2022, 16:17):
Some good news at least: At our German site https://brettspielnetz.de we will also integrate Streetsoccer and Subulata. So nearly all the games that you can play here, you will be able to play at our site. And with all the features that you like here: tournaments, championships, teams, chatting during the games!
Don't be shy of German. You will understand our site, because it has nearly the same structure as yourturnmyturn.

Comment of mahtomo (05-10-2022, 22:31):
The autumn championships are starting at brettspielnetz.de. After the registration you can participate in one of the three championships (Backgammon, Cat and Mouse, Stacko): https://www.brettspielnetz.de/meisterschaften.php . As VIP you can inscribe for all three. Have a look at our site and enjoy icon_smile.gif .

A big thank you to the yourturnmyturn.com team for providing us with this fun and wonderful platform . It has been a great experience over the years. I pray that Bram's health problems will improve. Also best wishes to Marianne and also to all my fellow participants.

Comment of unprinted (03-11-2022, 18:17):
icon_cry.gif Thank you, it has been lovely playing here.

On the one hand, I have had over two months of not noticing this news. On the other, it means that the site is over two months closer to closing icon_cry.gif

Sadly, one of the games missing from the German site is Qin. If there's not an annual licence fee, is there any way to transfer the one for Qin or in some other way get it there too?

Comment of mahtomo (05-11-2022, 08:58):
@unprinted Each new game that we transfer to https://www.brettspielnetz.de (BSN) costs us at least three weeks of our spare time. Currently we are very occupied implementing some of the favorite games of jijbent and ytmt (wordgame will come soon). Another project is, to make it possible to switch the language of the commands and menus to English and Dutch, so that you have it easier to adapt to our site.
So you see that spare time isn`t existing for us currently. But, as we have got the right to use whatever free game Bram implemented, at the end of our transformation we will transfer other games, that are not so highly ranked in the statistics to BSN. So you only need some patience icon_smile.gif .

Comment of flint (05-11-2022, 21:24):
Dear @Bram.
Is there a possibility we keep this websites and games online.
Kind regards,
Flint

Comment of mahtomo (06-11-2022, 10:11):
@flint: I am admin of brettspielnetz.de (BSN) and one of the German business partners of Bram. We also asked him your question, but he denied definitely.
Already before he offered us to continue with brettspielnetz.de. We agreed, and so we have to adapt BSN to the new PHP and a lot of other stuff, which is a huge bunch of work... Even if Bram allowed us to continue with the English and Dutch site, we wouldn't have the time to do that...
So the alternative is that you come over to BSN. There are most of the games that you can play here at YTMT. We are currently engineering our site, so that you can partially have an English (or Dutch) user interface. This will be done in the next weeks. I will announce it here and in the forum, when we are ready.
As BSN and YTMT are based on the same code, you will be able already now to register and to play at BSN. The surface is very similar! And there are English speaking users at BSN who cope very well icon_smile.gif .
So: Welcome to BSN! icon_biggrin.gif

Comment of mahtomo (06-11-2022, 16:46):
Update: The (partially!) English user interface is available at Brettspielnetz.de . See more info in the forum.

Comment of Pan_Calvus (13-11-2022, 22:25):
Thank you for all the work over the years.

Comment of Mikolino (26-11-2022, 08:37):
I am very sorry to hear this. icon_sad.gif I have been on this site for a long time and played many games, got to know many good people. Bram, I wish you get better soon!

Comment of Lexia (01-01-2023, 04:37):
Thank you very much for your efforts all these years. It's been fun! Good luck to you in all you do, and hopefully if you do something similar to this in the future, you will use this forum to let us know so we can come along with you.

Comment of freya (02-01-2023, 16:23):
I tried to register for brettspielnetz.de. and it did not work. I speak German so that was not the issue.

Comment of mahtomo (10-01-2023, 23:00):
Hi freya,

what exactly didn't work?
Do you use automatic translation of the browser? There can be problems, so please turn this off.
If it is something else, please contact me.

So far,
mahtomo

Comment of Jon.Dann (27-01-2023, 09:47):
How dare you, Bram!

Comment of jaycee (07-03-2023, 06:09):
I was able to register at the German site without a hitch. I studied basic German way back in 1975 so this will be a real challenge linguistically. Other than that thanks to the admins for their dedication to yourturnmyturn, a truly wonderful site.

I was 2015 dicegame champion - is this game on the German site?


Comment of Marianne (07-03-2023, 16:07):

@ jaycee https://www.brettspielnetz.de/help.php Würfelspiel = dicegame. So, yes this game is also on the German site. See also: https://www.brettspielnetz.de/news.php?newsnumber=173

ik speel op de duitse site en wie volgen jullie op

Comment of treefinger (19-04-2023, 18:35):
If the software and code could be overhauled by independent programmers, and the site overhauled to continue running, would someone be willing to take over the admin duties?

I would imagine there is no shortage of programmers who might be willing to give it a go...

thoughts?

Comment of mahtomo (20-04-2023, 09:21):
@treefinger:
This is exactly what we do at https://www.brettspielnetz.de/ . We are the German version of this site and we are working on the translation of our site to English and Dutch. Here you can see the games that we have at our site (some more than here, some other will be integrated soon e.g. the English wordgame): https://www.brettspielnetz.de/spieleuebersicht.php .
Continuing this site as it is was already denied by Bram.

Comment of Traum2000 (27-04-2023, 21:10):
I know nothing about coding - when saying the code needs to be updated, what would happen if it was just not updated?
I'm new to the site, but it seems too good to just shut down

Comment of mahtomo (28-04-2023, 11:00):
The code works with php (a programming language) 5.x. The current version of php is 8.2. If we don't update, the code won't work in some parts, because the interpreter of the code doesn't accept old commands. So the site would be broken.
If we tried to stay at the old code base working with php 5.x, there would be security issues (therefore the providers don't like us to use php 5.x later than August, 2023).
But as already stated: We update the code at https://www.brettspielnetz.de/ (this is more or less the German version of this site) and we rework our German site, so that we have an English and Dutch interface (currently 40-50% is already translated and many English speaking players already switched to our site). Most of the German players speak English, so the only things that you loose is your history of games, your rating and - at least for some time - one or two games that aren't yet implemented at Brettspielnetz.de. But you win a lot of new games and a bigger community!
