      Dear Friends and YL Family,

      It's not the worst news in the world today, but we're sorry to have to tell you anyway. After more than four years of retro fun, YesterdayLand is shutting down, more than likely less than 24 hours after you read this.

      As a website, we can't imagine YL could be much better, but unfortunately, as a business, it became clear it just wasn't going to work as planned. We're sorry we can't give you more detailed explanations, but believe us when we say that nobody wanted YL to last more than the people who brought it to you. For those of us lucky enough to actually work in the fun factory, it may have been the best job we'll ever have.

      We're proud of the supersite we built, of the thousands of pages of information and memories about the stuff we all grew up on, of the interviews and anecdotes from people whose work we greatly respect. But more than anything, we're proud of the way that somehow, this little personal fantasyland of ours turned into a genuine, living community of friends and online family. Thanks to all of you, from our newest YL-ers to those who've been with us from the beginning. We may have built the castle,but you brought the magic.

      So trade your email addresses and contact info as you please, say whatever goodbyes you need to say, and keep in touch. It's still a great big world wide web, and maybe one day we'll plant our flags on a brand new land for all of us to play in. It can't be any worse than AfterM*A*S*H, right?

      It's been wonderful. Thank you.

      Your friends at YesterdayLand

        i loved Yesterday Land, but Retro Junk fills the void perfectly, and is in some ways better than yesterdayland.

          I loved it to. I got my Bionic 6 tapes from someone that was a member of the site. Do you know if the owners plan on having a actual web site not a message board?

                                  Ah Yesterdayland, found my first proper girlfriend on the boards there. Shocking to think how long the Retro community has been around online really.

                                        Yesterdayland is back in the form of http:\www.retroland.com. But yeah, I still do miss Yesterdayland. You can still go there with the Internet Wayback Machine.

                                        I'm a member at Retroland, but I rarely use it. Retroland doesn't have nearly as many features as Retro Junk.
