When I started my blog, “ages ago”, one of my first inspirations was the Polish website known as “Retrostacja”, or to those non-Polish speakers as “Steampunkopedia”. Over the years it existed as a central repository of Steampunk information and documentation, and it became apparent that I was long overdue in blogging about it. Alas, when I attempted to visit it, I discovered the site was gone.
Apparently due to circumstances occurring at the Great Steampunk Debate, I perceive that Mr. Piechur has made the difficult choice to suspend the website. Personally, I only lurk at the debate, a conscious choice after past experience of how controversial some discussions can evolve/devolve on discussion boards. Even so, the absence of this outstanding website is a loss to the overall Steampunk community, as it was the oldest (and perhaps most complete) resource for the genre. Fair winds and following seas, sir!
