Welcome to the SimYard Wiki
- NOTE: SimYard has shut down as of February 13, 2014. The site displayed a close down message until June 1, 2014. The site has since shut down completely.
This was to have been a place for all SimYard players to add to the enjoyment of the game. You can create pages here for your teams, stadiums, leagues, players, franchises and pretty much anything else that is related to SimYard.
The plan was to include a page for each year that shows important things that happened; park playoff results, new leagues, new features.

The very first game featured the Mars Green Stockings defeating the Edgebrook Deloreans by a score of 5 to 2. Shortstop Lawrence Navarro hit the first home run in SimYard history for the Green Stockings. Boxscore
On January 26, 2014 SimYard started having issues with playoff games playing innings out of order resulting in more plate appearances and batters faced for the players themselves and some teams advancing even though they had been eliminated. It was determined that all leagues had to be rebooted, and they were on January 27.
On February 1, the start of Spring Training 1970, the site was experiencing performance issues stemming from the same issues that were plaguing the site just a few days prior. As a result, Erick halted all park games indefinitely in an attempt to make the leagues run error free.
However on February 11, the database went down unexpectedly for a few hours. It was restored a few hours later, but suffered a fatal error just two days later on February 13 and Erick had no alternative but to shut the site down.
The following message was posted on SimYard's website:

Dear SimYard.com members,
SimYard is shutting down permanently. If you had remaining permits, I have provided a claim form to request unused funds be returned. I'm sorry that it has ended this way.
Our database machine has suffered an unrecoverable error, and there is no other option here. I would definitely like to thank everyone who has been a part of SimYard for the past six years. It has been a tremendous run. I have learned a lot, enjoyed creating and running this site, and I hope that everyone had a lot of fun playing.
I regret that the game came to an end this way. In a way, it's fitting though. This whole site has been an amateur production since the beginning. In its later years, when I had the experience to know better, it was too much of a mess to fix. And now, it ends in about the most amateurish way possible.
This site started out as a business experiment for me. When I had to return to full time work in 2009, I was left with a pile of debt. Between full time work, and my family, I have had almost no time for development since then. I know some of you have put up with some crazy bugs and problems, especially this past year, and I just hope you all had fun with the game in the meantime.
I appreciate the people who have played on this site, both those who left and those who stuck it out to the end. I hope ultimately everyone has good memories of playing SimYard, even with the problems that the site had. The experience that I gained working on this site has proved very valuable to me, and my next entry into the space will be far more professional of a production.
Until we meet again,
