Easier said than done.

Outside of putting up a sign on the site stating something like "this site is complete", just what would I be expected to do in order to make it clear that it was finished. And what do I mean by finished? "Finished", after all, isn't the same as "complete". It could just as well mean "neglected", "forgotten about", "lost interest in", "dormant", "on a (very low) back burner", and more. What's more, it's not clear just why I should care. Any reader who might visit the site could, without difficulty, write me an e-message asking if I intended to continue to add material, and, writing from experience, chances are good that nobody will. It hardly seems particularly important to a reader (who anyway is simply passing through) that he or she know my future intentions for the site.
