"The QuakeNet servers at Peliportti will be closed next week.
The QuakeNet server cluster irc.fi.quakenet.org at Peliportti will be closed next Wednesday, June 26th, 2002. Users connecting to QuakeNet via an address ending with .quakenet.org, such as irc.fi.quakenet.org, will be automatically directed to another QuakeNet server elsewhere in Europe. The address irc.peliportti.net will also function as a redirector to other QuakeNet servers for the time being, but users of this address are recommended to change to a .quakenet.org address as soon as possible, as a precaution. A decision currently planned within QuakeNet to close the other Finnish server, helsinki.fi.quakenet.org hosted by KPNQwest, will most likely cause the nearest server for Finnish users to be located in Sweden. The network connections between Finland and Sweden are generally of good quality and a user may connect to a Swedish QuakeNet server by connecting to se.quakenet.org."

A number of the existing Finnish operators have been rehomed on other QuakeNet servers and will continue their duties with QuakeNet, however Bafi, Raziel, acrolyte and cheesy have decided to step down as operators on QuakeNet.
