Subcreation down, Alcaras pulled the plug

Filed under: subcreation, mage, communityMy beloved #1 theorycrafting site, Subcreation, was taken offline yesterday. That's what you see when trying to access their page now:
Alcaras, why, WHYYYY!
The subcreation forums were always a source of inspiration, and a meeting point for the best mage theorycrafters out there. Its intelligent, inspiring and honest discussions will be missed. At least for me, they leave a gap behind, which can't be filled by Elitist Jerks nor any other existing forum. Screw EJ, we want Subcreation back!
It was quite of a shock, seeing the Subcreation community gone, and having the forums no more (there's a whole bunch of reference material there). It's strange that this wasn't announced before, and that there was no way to discuss how the forums may be saved and continued.
Alcaras pulled the plug, and we're left with a crater where once the green and flourishing lands of theorycrafting and WoW discussion lay. Whatever the reason was, I hope we find out some day...
If that's really the end of it: thanks Alcaras and all of the Subcreation community, you will be missed! Special salutes to Qb (Qbert on US-Moonrunner), your postings, opinions and reviews were always excellent. Some of the subcreation regulars are also blogging (e.g. Tuna at spicytunas.com); at least this way I'll continue to read their opinions.
/salute & /farewell
