Closed or adopted out.Sometimes life conspires against you. And in those situations, you either have to close a fanlisting or adopt it out to someone else. They will always be sad occasions, but they can also be quite necessary.
In the following cases, it's either a matter of not having enough time anymore (whether it be building or maintaining), or not being able to, in good conscience, keep it to myself.

GamesYahoo! Games: This was going to be the very first fanlisting I ever built! I made the layout, the content, made my first attempt at using PHPFanBase, and everything else. I hadn't applied at the stage, as I wanted to be sure I could actually make a fanlisting before I bothered. Obviously, I could. So I applied. And then found out it wasn't a valid subject and was told to apply in Websites. And found out it wasn't valid there either. XD Bummer.
