If you didn’t hear the news, at 5PM PST, Demand Studios will shut its virtual doors:
We recently announced that the Studio would be on vacation while we celebrate the December holidays. We wanted to share some additional details to help everyone plan accordingly.
The Studio site will be unavailable starting Wednesday, December 18 at 5PM PT, through Thursday, January 2 at 8AM PT. During this time, you will not be able to log in to the Studio system.
However, not to worry, as usual the DMS forums are full of helpful tips for getting through this difficult time:
Seven days is still next Thursday — after the Studio closes, but as I had hoped to take a screenshot of my queue and work on it off the site during the break, i too am concerned about this. I don’t want any more surprises this holiday season!
Things aren’t looking good, queue wise. Little birdies tell us that some of the mighty queues, which had upwards of 100,000 articles at one point, are down to as little as 2,000 or less.
So the question is, will the Studio reopen and, if so, what kind of a brave new DMS are we going to see in 2014?
Any predictions out there?
