To all of our fantastic readers....
As you know, Echo Base News has been on hiatus for three months. Now, we are saddened to announce that this summer Echo Base News will be beginning the process of closing its virtual doors for good. A variety of personal and professional factors have contributed to this decision by the staff. With the exception of a final report coming up within the next couple weeks, no new original content will be published.
Everything Echo Base News has produced will be archived over the next several months so it can be preserved for future enjoyment and reference. The dozens of interviews we have conducted over the last couple years will be republished at the personal blog of owner David Delgado, which is scheduled to begin running on July 1. David also has exciting plans to join the staff of a well-known Star Wars fan site; further details will be announced very soon. Also, details on the Customs for a Cause charity fundraiser and our plans to continue it this winter will be announced soon.
It’s been quite a ride, and operating Echo Base News was a tremendously fun and rewarding experience for everyone involved. David and the Echo Base News team would like to thank our loyal readers and supporters over the years for joining us in our mission to Keep Star Wars Cool, and we hope that a lot of people have enjoyed the site as much as we’ve enjoyed delivering it. Any additional updates will be announced here on our Facebook page, including our final report. Be sure to check that out! The site and the Facebook page will be shut down for good by the end of 2012.
Please don't hesitate to email us with your questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again, and may the Force be with you!
