I was just wondering...what happened to it all? It was there recently, and I thought it was a "new" thing, and now it isn't here?

Does this mean I have to worry about the future of my favorite online resource?

Also, if it isn't too invasive, could I ask what the response was to the advertising? I didn't mind at all, but did the participants see utility in the messages they were sending?

Thanks...I really appreciate this resource, and all of the professionals who post here, giving their wisdom like precious pearls to the poor masses like myself, who are desperately searching for direction...;)

It was a test run to test the system and to gauge general interest. I knew it was a touch premature for the volume we are doing. It was an opportunity for me to test out the system for the future and also test it for a few client sites. During the test phase we had a couple dozen inqueries and ended up selling a couple hundred k of banner ads over at SEW.

No, you needn't worry about the state of WmW. The server fees are paid for a year and I get more than enough other perks to make it worth the time. We'll be here.
