This post is to announce that I will officially be shutting The Wrongest Words
on Monday, March 20th.
Essentially, it comes down to a crisis of maintenance. I've launched and worked on a lot of other sites since Wrongest Words launched, meanwhile this project has remained stagnant, basically ignored for two years, with the last commit to the code made in June of 2016. When the domain came up for renewal, I kept it going for another year because I looked at the traffic and saw people were still playing it. I kept the domain going because I wanted those people to be able to keep playing, and figured perhaps at some point we'd work on the game some more.
It's been a year since I renewed that domain, and the project is still in the same place. It still gets about 5-20 sessions a day, and I still never think about it. It's at the point where I can no longer justify the cost of renewing both domains (wrongest.website and wrongest.net) for a total of $32.88. The cost is just a reminder that I'm letting it sit there, and I'd rather shutter the thing if it's gonna be ignored for that long.So
if you want to get your last rounds in before that happens, please feel free. I want to give a very public Thank You To Dole
for standing up the project. We never would have made the game if it wasn't for him, and I still don't understand how part of it works.
If you want to adopt the game, get in touch with me.
Thanks for playing.
