I created Asphalt in December of 2016 as a way for me to listen to music for free without paying any of the big bots to do so
I didn't plan for Asphalt to get to where it is today, and I certainly had to learn a lot to get it to where it is.
Over time, the bot has grown considerably - with us reaching over 56,000,000 users during its lifetime. Asphalt has grown from a music bot ran locally to a general purpose bot ran on multiple servers
I am shutting down Asphalt, effective immediately, for the following reasons
- I have endured constant issues with the bot going down (for no reason at all), and they have become too much for me to handle
- I have also endured a significant amount of stress since the bot was first launched in 2016
- I am heavily burnt out working on Asphalt. I have been working on this bot pretty much every day since it launched in 2016
Thank you for everything over the years- Connor
