Today, many website and signature line gamercards will be replaced with the following epitaph graphic.
It links to a rather lengthy statement from Morgon, the site owner, in which he details the history of difficulties with Microsoft and the access to gamer data. Among his comments he makes it clear that Microsoft put the final nail in the website’s coffin.
“However, in the past few years, that love for community has been lost by Microsoft. The closure of customer-to-company community-centric interfaces (that weren’t tech support (no disrespect towards the awesome @XboxSupport!)) was a huge blow for Xbox fans. Especially those who really felt like they had a connection to the company they were spending their disposable income on. Similarly, the Xbox Community Developer Program – the program that was essentially created for MyGamerCard and a select few similarly broad-minded community projects – stagnated, with extremely few updates or new data features (despite constant requests), and waning communication as Xbox was not allocating any time to the program.”
If you have comments, suggestions or questions, Morgon has provided contact info on MyGamercard.net. Feel free to raise hell here also.
