I don't know if this is the right place and apologize if not.

I was trying to look at a current swap partner's wist and got the following message from www.wists.com:

Wists, is no longer active.
Please email questions to questions |.at.| wists.com

Anyone know if the site is not there anymore or what?

Thanks.

I have also had the same experience and clicking on any links to Wist gets the message you found.  It is dead, to the best of my knowledge....

I have it come up sometimes, and sometimes not.  Tongue  It makes me sad that they didn't send an e-mail or something letting everyone know that they were shutting down.  I had a lot of good stuff on my wist.   Cry

To answer your question from the other post...I think that anything you put your time and effort into would be considered crafted by you.  Think about it...NOTHING that we use we created entirely from scratch ourselves...even people who spin yarn...the yarn originally came from an animal...(Hope my explanation isn't too silly...)

This should get posted on the front page. I get tired of swaps with a wist listed and not have my partner realize that thing is gone.

My guess is that when Pinterest came out. Wists days were numbered.  I never got a Wists  account because it always ran slow on my computers.  No matter what type or brand.  The last time I was there I had a hard time with the search function.  So, decided not to go back.

Especially since those of us who had a Wists account were never notified of the shut-down, Wists.com should have created an archive, so that we could retrieve the items we wish to save to possibly post on Pinterest.

I agree.  It wasn't right how it just shut down.

Love that archive idea!!  I wonder if all of our 'wants' are out there somewhere floating in the clouds...
