YoYonation was a great store. It was more than a store though. The “Nation” was a huge community with thousands and thousands of loyal customers and members of the online forum. It was a juggernaut in yo-yo history.
The future of YoYoNation has been up in the air over for a while and with no store to fund the server costs, Weber is no longer able to (or should be expected to) sustain it. Because of this, I am sad to announce that the YoYoNation store will not re-open. With this bitter news though comes some goodness. YoYoSkills is taking ownership of the YoYoNation domains and forum! The forum has 1 million posts and over 15k members. A good portion of the forum posts are normal forum discussion, but some of it has great value as marks in yo-yo history that needs to be preserved. In the next few days, the forum will be frozen and put into maintenance mode. The transition will begin and once moved over to the YoYoSkills server, the forum will re-open. The YoYoNation store is also a valuable resource with a crap-ton of detailed specs and images of yo-yos over the last decade. The YoYoNation store will be converted to an online Museum and act as a resource catalog. Because it will undoubtedly be asked, I have no plans to re-open the YoYonation store, or any store for that matter. All customer / purchase history is being purged. The old store will serve in the capacity as an online catalog only. Hopefully, one we can start adding to.
I am doing all this to save what I feel is not only a valuable resource to have, but is also an important part of yo-yo history. Feel free to ask any questions as we adopt YoYoNation into the YoYoSkills family.
