Well, it all started when a user (who was himself a programmer) had apparently poked around and found a critical issue with security on the game that could lead to security issues for everyone's account (private info)> He posted it in SF about it and was told by some other users to take it up with Admin. It took some time til the Devs could even get around to looking at it and one tried to see if it could be fixed. Unfortunately it could not be. So they took the game down altogether. There are those of us who are trying to get parts of it repurposed elsewhere. In Lake Kindred game, for example. Because some of us want to see the zOMG monsters as Kin. That way, having lost zOMG does not hurt so much.
