So... what happened?

2013-11-28 06:40:59: jmgariepy created the card Magic Lampoon?

I've been working on making a gateway for all the relevant Magic: the Gathering casual formats. Throne Magic is on queque. Last week, I checked in at Magiclampoon.com, where Throne Magic first spawned from, but all the pages were blank. That's weird, but I figured that whatever problem they had, they were working on it.

Now that I'm up to Throne Magic, I returned to Magiclampoon to find... oh. Still blank. Not down. No 404s. No adverts as if their account expired. Just nothing. I've been Googling for answers for the past 30 minutes, but I can't find anything.

My first thought would be that Wizards contacted them because of some sort of copyright violation, and they were in the process of dealing with that. But their Facebook page still exists, and a blog is up that still links to their stuff. Last post was in March... and I think some of the last stuff posted was all repeats. All twitter posts end in March as well.

This is all very weird. It's a shame to lose MagicLampoon, too. Good stuff there. But comedy needs to be timely... I get that. It just seems like a real kick in the pants that Throne Magic was swallowed into whatever hole MagicLampoon sunk into.

google cache still seems to have it.

Cache! Oh, excellent. I completely forgot about that.

Unfortunately, this bring up the hazy question of whether it would be acceptable for me to host Throne Magic on JMGariepy.com... at least temporarily. I suppose the only way to know is to contact the Magic Lampoon editors. Looks like the cache also has their web address on it. We'll see what they have to say.
