In the other thread "To Moderators it May Concern" somebody stated that this site will shut down. Can anyone clarify/confirm/deny this? Will there be any successors?

Read @spockers 3rd paragraph in his Answer in that thread.

To save you time - I Quote him "This site itself is slated for shutdown, note that links to it have been pulled from cydia and reddit. I'm copying the thousands of answers I've written here, as legally I own them."

It's a WAG on my part as to when this will happen, but expiry of the domain registration in January could be a logical point.

What does @chpwn have to say about this? I think he is one of the people in charge of the site. Since saurik doesn't care about JBQA anymore and britta is out of the jailbreak scene, chpwn is the only one that can give a proper explanation.

I really hope something can be done to keep this site alive. When I first jail broke my phone, this site was an enormous help to me, answering questions, solving problems, and expanding my jailbreak knowledge just by reading other posts and answers. As I've become more experienced, I've been able to help others, and I'm sure this is true for many other people too. If this site were to die, it would be an enormous loss to the jailbreak community.

I see. It would be pretty sad to see this site go. But since it runs on OSQA, couldn't it be simply taken over by someone and moved to a new host?
