The developer of the JSF BodyShop software has left the project due to some significant life and job changes. Unfortunately this has put BodyShop into a state of limbo. This news has caught me completely off-guard.
While BodyShop will continue to operate for the foreseeable future, all development (bugs/new features) is currently halted. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
I don’t feel continuing to run BodyShop in its current state is a viable long-term solution. I see three possible options:
– Close it down.
– Find a developer who is willing to take over the project.
– Start over with a new developer.
On a related note, more than 1,600 of you have BodyShop accounts, but the number of users who regularly use the site is a small fraction of that. If you tried BodyShop and didn’t like it, I’d really like to know why. Did you find the site slow? Buggy? Ugly? Unintuitive? Difficult to use? Something else? Please be blunt with your comments. “The site sucks” won’t help me much, so brief details explaining why you don’t like the site would be appreciated. I’ve started a feedback thread, and I’d really appreciate it of you’d take a couple of minutes to post your thoughts.
