I have substantial reason to believe MYSTlore is getting spammed currently. I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but over the past months, thousands of new accounts following the same pattern have been created with no active follow-ups. Take a look at the log here for my evidence:
http://en.mystlore.com/wiki?title=Special:RecentChanges&limit=10000&days=1000
(Be patient, it's a big query...)
Unless suddenly Uru has attracted the attention of every gamer on the planet, I find this remarkably hard to believe. Spamming seems the obvious answer.
From what I can tell judging from the same log, MYSTlore seems to be rather dead. Is anybody here an admin on MYSTlore? If so, you might want to install a CAPTCHA protection or something like this. If the website can still be considered active (i.e. it won't disappear suddenly one day, without warning), which I sincerely hope.

Oh wow!

Mystlore is still very much alive; just not that much to update in articles these days. Chucker was the admin there. And if I'm not mistaken, Mystlore is on the same server as http://mystcommunity.com. Maybe you can PM him and see what's going on.

I guess they're already aware of it after all:

Thanks for the link, though!

I wanted to check up something on MYSTlore .. but the webpage seems to be down.
Anybody know as why or when it went down?

Hmm, I checked MYSTlore only a couple days ago. I doubt it was taken down, something probably went pop on a server somewhere.

This has been going on for quite some time. I even tried emailing Chucker but never got a response.

Oh, and I seem to be unable to reach the website now as well. It wasn't that long ago that I last checked it.

There've been some issues on the server that hosts MYSTLore and MYSTCommunity. Forum's back, wiki isn't yet. I'm not the technical administrator, so I can't give you the details, but I can tell you that we're aware of the issues and are investigating.

Any news about this issue?

I cannot reach the website of Mystlore as of today (March 20th 2013). I was looking for a specific info on Myst universe.

I will try this document...http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=14066&highlight=walkthrough which is a walkthrough but beside the "walkthru" elements, it is very informative and cleverly made. We can see and learn many things ... just saying, my best reference beside Mystlore.

If you need to get to MYSTlore, you can use the archived version on the Wayback Machine. Search won't work, but the pages should still be there.

Any idea on the mystlore site? I can't register for some reason on mystcommunity.com so I figured I would try here. I used to go to that site everyday to look at things. It's killing me not being able to.

Any update would be greatly appreciated.

MYSTlore is pretty much dead by now, nothing happened for almost a year...
There are two other Myst wikis though: The D'ni Wikia and MYSTAges. Both of them have a good amount of content, definetely worth checking out.

Yeah, I've seen those others but mystlore was definitely the best. I used to edit and contribute to mystlore consistently up until it went down. I just want to know is there a plan to fix the site so it's available or not.

I don't believe there is any plan whatsoever; the administrator of the MystLore server isn't active anymore, so it's quite possible MystLore will never be back.

Considering that it is down for so long now, I don't think that it will ever be relaunched, especially because there are the other wikis. You could also register for the new wikis and help transfer missing information. I'm regularly contributing to MYSTAges by the way, the D'ni Wikia seems pretty dead though.

I actually just got an email back from Chucker who runs the site and he says he is planning on sifxing it. So that's some good news.
