D&D General Dragon+ Content Going Away -- Whoops, It's Gone!

WotC's online ezine, Dragon+, ended a few months ago. Until now the existing issues were still accessible, but as of today, November 15th, WotC announced that "Dragon+ will be removed from app stores on or around November 15th, and dragonmag.com will be redirected and its content will no longer be available".

If you wanted to save any of the content, do it quick, because it goes away today!

[Edit -- and the content is now gone].

Earlier this year we announced that the current issue of Dragon+ will be its last. Dragon+ will be removed from app stores on or around November 15th, and dragonmag.com will be redirected and its content will no longer be available.

I mean, Dragon+ was never quite what they wanted it to be - the one stop shop for digital news about D&D from the horse's mouth.
D&D Beyond is clearly filling that same role now that they bought it out. There was no need for the confusion of both.

But frankly, as Wizardly a thing this is to do, I wish they had done the unwizardly thing and actually archived their library before banishing it to the graveyard…
 


Well that kinda sucks. There was some interesting stuff there. I wonder why they did that?
Probably something contractual.

I remember when WotC had the rights to do Star Wars and Wheel of Time RPG's. . .their material/webpages for those just disappeared into the ether with almost no notice, as soon as the licenses expired and with little-to-no fanfare.

From 2008 to 2010, there was a casual game on Facebook called "D&D Tiny Adventures" that let you play simple solo adventures with a character you'd level up and develop over time. . .that disappeared almost instantly, as in they put up an announcement it was ending and had it gone later the same day. It turned out that the game was in violation of the licensing agreements WotC had for licensing out D&D video game rights, so as soon as the lawyers noticed it had to come down immediately.

When WotC makes something vanish off the web that fast, it's a legal thing.

That's certainly plausible.

I still say one of the biggest L's on Wizard's part was pretty much removing all of the fantastic 3.0/3.5 stuff they used to have on their website many moons ago. Lot of it was fantastic with lore, ideas, and what not.

Granted, there's still some work arounds to find most of it or what not, but still.
