@jadb has been maintaining the project for the last couple of years. What's up Jad? :)

Yes, the links to badges it provides for projects README's are broken. The irony...

The domain gets deleted 30 days after expiration date (December 28) I believe, so we don't have long. I wouldn't like for this great project to die... @jadb

Looks like the domain is now on backorder and bidding has started... Currently at $69.

Arg! What?! Very long story...

I am in contact with BuyDomains.com who are auctioning it to try and deal a buy it now price (they initially asked for 5K).

Once all this is (hopefully) resolved, I'll get time to write more on the WTF.

Everything linking to http://stillmaintained.com/ is already broken as-is. Why not just use a different domain (like .center, .directory, .help or .software or something less exotic like .net) and tell BuyDomains to stuff it?

I have thought of this but then I found out about this badges/shields#607 and in its current state, SM doesn't do much more than having the user update it (doesn't automatically tell if stale). Which makes a badge on shields acts the same with the only difference that there is no UI to manage the status of ones' collection of projects.

I had plans to automate some stuff by making it work with issuestats.com to get a feeling of a repository's heartbeat and that would pump so new life into the project but been so short on time 😞

Anyone cares to help?

I'm afraid I don't really have any time to contribute 😞. Anyone else?

Is the data lost or just the domain?

Just the domain.

What do we think it the next step here? I don't think there's any point in going through the BuyDomains route - they're incredibly expensive.

As for myself contributing, I may possibly be able to help in a few ways here and there.

A few ways forward:

  • someone splash out the cash from BuyDomains
  • use a new domain e.g. still-maintained.com, stillmaintained.net
    • perhaps write a GitHub bot to help fix the broken links
  • change (domain) name of project + also a new direction and roadmap for the project

Let's not forget another two projects that exist http://isitmaintained.com and http://unmaintained.tech that are also similar.

It might be helpful to get a dump of the data. Maybe we can get a Jekyll page up and running and use pull requests to update the status of the applications.
