PickersGames Offline?
(10/17/2001) After 10,000 hits and a sudden disappearance from the net, is Pickers Games in the process of retiring or rebuilding?

The status of PickersGames is currently unknown., home of the official PickersGames website, disappeared from the Internet after an unusual October 17 update. In the update, all the files have apparently been deleted and only the Parent Directory is left, leaving PickersGames empty.

No word has come out yet from webmaster Pickers on whether the site was officially retired, or if PickersGames is having web problems of some kind.

PickersGames was best noted as a QB site of all trades, featuring Quiz sections, news sections, game reviews, site reviews, polls, and just about anything QB that can be conceived. Pickers recently started an expansion project, in which the site would enter new ventures and hire new people starting in May 2001.

PickersGames also hosted links to many QB projects. Among them include the Silent Creations Online game Pickman 2, made by DiZZy. Fortunately, this lone project page of the Pickman 2 project seems to have survived after the rest of the Pickers Games site disappeared.

While the Pickers Games site is missing, no official word has come from Pickers. Whether the site has been retired or if the site is being re-built in response to the May 2001 expansion project remains to be seen.
