@Ivan sup?! Good to see ya!
@JOE How did it become deceased? I have just been searching it out of curiosity. Looks like there was a quite transistion…. I’m kinda late in the game here. Kinda like starting off again in a whole new school.

Dr. Thanos here. Wis.dm was shut down b/c it was losing money and they couldn’t figure out a way to turn that around. In my opinion it died because they added too many features that slowed it down and fragmented its user community. They forgot that the #1 maxim of good design is KISS – Keep It Simple, Stupid. Fortunately, many of us have managed to stay in touch using other sites like Facebook, Twitter, Fluther, Minekey, Answerbag, and Inquire.

BTW, in case you didn’t figure it out I had the same name on wis.dm…except my O had a line through it.

I’m here.

KhiaKarma's avatar

@mattbrowne :) Your post on something that I googled aout Wis.dm led me here!

mattbrowne's avatar

@KhiaKarma – Is it still possible to google wis.dm – I thought all the content got deleted?

KhiaKarma's avatar

@mattbrowne this is what I found last month. :)

mattbrowne's avatar

@KhiaKarma – Yes, and I left a comment there as well a couple of months ago. What I don’t understand: Why is there no read-only version of all wis.dm questions and answers somewhere on the web? The content is valuable.

Has something been done to guarantee the work being done here at fluther remains alive?

Rarebear's avatar

@mattbrowne Before the site died, Will gave everybody the opportunity to download all their questions and comments. I did that, but I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it.

mattbrowne's avatar

@Rarebear – I did that too. I just think the content should be available to everyone on the web. It’s possible to use this:

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://wis.dm

and you can drill down into a text-only history of the wis.dm site

This made me very sad.

DrThanos's avatar

Long live wis.dm in our hearts! toasts

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Well, wis.dm is no more, this is true but it lives on me and Alex and in our giant family that came as a result of it.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Giant, absolutely crazy family. Bring back Thong Thursday!

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Was that a thing? Everything is so hazy now.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yeah, Thong Thursday. And a thousand boob questions!

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Sounds like a good time.

Dutchess_III's avatar

It was the best! Have a thread going on fb with Thanos and some others. It’s basically picture comments. So like the old Wis.dm.
