If you think MySpace is screwed.. "the people who've done what they've done to it should be hanged, drawn and quartered, then put out to dry on a "Don't ever fook up something that worked SO WELL, ever again!!" line, for all to see and be warned by" ...

I remember WebRing - bought by a certain Big Name group, they 'fixed it so well that they broke it utterly and could not work out what they had done, so THEY GAVE IT AWAY FOR FREE ... and it was fixed in a day or two ....

It still works enough to play Castle Age - and it works better than the 'new improved' Castle Age version on Farceberk, that has been also broken so well that they wont even answer the users any more ...

I never used Myspace to play games...

Neither did the thousands of musicians, for which it was a wonderful shop window, a way to get the world to hear your music so easily, see your gig dates etc..

You couldn't make up what's been allowed to happen to it.

Still, at least they've got their adverts working, so I guess they've managed to fix the most important part of it, for them........

Myspace was different to FB, which is nowhere near as good for Musicians...In my book, the owners of it had a duty to the people they know used it, benefitted from it, but hey...'duty' is a dirty word these days....

Last time I checked, with Facebook Pages most (apart from those from major record companies) have to put up with a messy URl - one remaining advantage of Myspace, and folks can link to Myspace pages (and Mudcat threads, I just noticed) via Facebook's Like.

Yes, but...what's the point, Wav...Myspace freezes up a great many computers...The ONLY thing they managed to do to a breathtaking standard was....bugger it all up...

OK I've got the game working on FB again - but only works in Chroome, which doesn't have all the firefox plugin bells and whistles...

From Jack's link: 'MySpace boss Mike Jones...said the site is no longer a social network and is instead an "entertainment destination"'...I suppose that's their only hope and, since I'd rather not bother building a Facebook Page (or another from the above), I, too, hope it works out that way - they are, in the end, all American capitalist companies.

Some good news - they've gone back to the old unlimited-plays, for all, on the profile music player.
