DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS I HAVE DECIDED TO CLOSE DOWN SCREENSHOT ART.COM. ALL THOSE AWAITING PRIZES WILL STILL GET THEM, I WILL CONTACT YOU BY E-MAIL. MANY THANKS TO YOU ALL, I THINK THE SITE HAS PROVEN THERE IS A FUTURE FOR WHAT WE DID HERE AND PERHAPS ANOTHER SITE WILL SPRING UP. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU ALL - MONSTAD

Holy beegezus! Monstad just started a competition for Oleg! Now all of a sudden its closed?? ACK!

Monstad, e-mail me at crash@ghostskies.com I'll see what I can do to help out with Bandwidth? Maybe you can piggy back on Ghost Skies?

When I read this I thought it was a bad joke.
I haven't posted any shots yet on this site but I've been a keen visitor, and have enjoyed all of the great screenshots/screenart on the site. I was just about to post my first picture for the present competition.

This is really sad.

Well i'm at school right now. Usually I go to this site whenever i'm not really doing anything. It broke my heart to see the site was closed down, maybe for good I don't know. And unfortunatley it's not April anymore so it's not a joke :/. I was wondering if anything else had to add to just personal reasons, and such a short amount of notice..Like none at all, I was just on the site yesterday because I posted some shots there the other day, though maybe there were some replies... So in search for more information I came back to the first place I heard about the website. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I'm really sad to see it go, and I hope that Monstad fixes whatever things he had going on.

It's sad to see you guys go. I was but an amateur, and I loved seeing the best of the best of the best.

Sad indeed.
The cost and time to run a big and frequently updated site must be big.
Thanks for the outstanding work with it so far.
I followed the progress with great interest and learned a lot.
Hope to see more of your personal work in the future.

I was thinking the same thing Toad... Aces High's "IL2 MAT Manager" is evidently shelved for good, and now ScreenShotArt.com is gone.

Perhaps it's growing pains and not death throes. :insert hopeful face here:

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gifSad, sad news. What does this mean? First Olegs delays, then Monstad closes. Its been told for years that flightsims is a dying genre. Are those talks reality? I just hope not.

PS. Monstad, I hope You are OK, and great thanks to You for Your time and efforts. I really enjoyed my brief spell with Screenshotart.com.
Wish You all the best in the future http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I'll second that thought for monstad and add that il2skins looks to be on the mend...

Hi guys,

thanks for all the kind words. I basically do not have the time to maintain the site, the site had tons of bandwidth etc but at the end of the day it was getting so big and I was unable to do other things and something had to give.

I will still be around and will do some stuff here and there.

Monstad

I didn't know until today-I wish you the best in whatever you are doing.

I wish I could have had time to devote to the site.

Thanks Monstad for all the work.
