I thought id post this here for you old timers to reminisce over.

On Monday with minimal notice the parent company webfusion decided we was too much of a bottomless pit and turned off and removed all our servers from the datacentre. As a result all wireplay is now dead.

Some of us admins and others with a vested interest in the brand from over the years are attempting to get things back and we have been allowed to take the name and a few servers. Hopefully at some point we can make a come back but certainly for the time being wireplay is gone. Death of a thousand cuts for those who know the history. (Theres a bit on wiki but its not very complete if your interested http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:DashPod/Wireplay ).

Thanks for anyone who played with us over the years in whatever game, its been a blast.

It's like finding out some long forgotten film star you vaguely remember and thought was dead, was in fact not dead, but you only know that because now they really are dead.

Resurrecting Wireplay b0nes? Hasn't that horse been flogged enough? The world moved on long ago...

Have you managed to salvage the forum database? It'd be a shame for that much hilarity to be lost forever.

When I saw the thread title, I thought this was a resurrected post from way back as I had no idea it was still going in any form!

Had some good times working on the WIreplay helpdesk before Gameplay jettisoned all things Wireplay and made us all redundant. :)

It never moved with the times was beset with busybodies and in the end outlived many a better provider, gaming moved on and wireplay didn't it was kicked around as a loss leader from provider to provider until it provided nothing of any real use.

I have in equal parts the best and worst memories from wireplay so its odd to see it finally be put out of its misery but its not before its time.

As for the vested interest in the "brand" everyone moved on guys, its probably time to just let it die!
