As weird as it is right after we unveiled our rebrand, me and Michael have agreed that Spaces isn’t viable in any way whatsoever at this point, and it’ll be shut down on
May 11th at 12 PM UTC May 10th at 12 AM UTC time. Before the shutdown, no new user accounts or blogs are accepted at this time, and plans for the “new Spaces” have been indefinitely halted. In the meanwhile, you can export your Spaces (blogs) by following these steps in our blog post here.
It’s been fun for me and Michael to operate and maintain the site while it lasted for the two years it has existed, and it’s a bit disappointing we have to close it. But considering that Spaces has no active userbase or interest anymore, especially since the unlinking from Escargot as it becomes more generic in nature, and trying to do anything to it wouldn’t better the state of the site, we’ve decided that shutting down Spaces would be the best option. Have a good one!
