What happened to MacThemes.net?

I've been trying to access it for two months, and it has been down :/. Is MacThemes.net gone?

Yes i think so . Even a google search of it returns nothing.

Are there any other similar sites? The modding community there was so extensive - I haven't been able to find another place like it.

Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing. Their domain hasn't expired, but maybe their host vanished?

Yeah, the only alternative I can find is ShapeShifter, which is okay but it costs like $20 to register and it isn't open-source .

ThemePark is much nicer, but MacThemes.net seemed to be hosting most of the non-ShapeShifter themes (At least ones that are compatible with Mac OS X 10.4/5 for PowerPC.)

I've been getting timeout responses from their server for a while now. Apparently this has happened more than once for long periods of time:

I followed this suggestion and I could access the site.
This is the message I found in the forum page:

Maintenance

Okay, so it's been a bit longer than a few days... but... it's rolling out as I type this. Keep checking back, within 24 hrs of reading this you should see the new MacThemes. ;D

YAY it's not gone !!! At most they're just having weird server issues.

Entering 70.32.86.98 in the URL entering thingy in Midori worked for me . I can access the site again .

I am so relieved...

EDIT: Never mind, it renders strangely, it claims to still be under maintenance, and most of the links are broken :'(.

June 2010. Macthemes has been up since then. What I'm saying is that we don't know how long the administrator message on Macthemes was put up.

I see. Well, I sure hope they didn't go under. I mean, they spent a lot of time on that new forum look and I don't think it's been up for even a year.

I was hoping to change things up on my current theme but seeing as its inaccessible I have no problem with what I got.

Its strange that they spent years making a new theme for the forum, and then about 5 months later to get rid of the forum. Whats with that really long image url you posted?

I can't access macthemes.net either.

This sucks because I use to post a photograph in the photo of the day thread on there.

There already is. There is a photo of the day thread for each month of the year.
