According to Wikia founder and chairman Jimmy Wales, the OpenServing site received several thousand applications within the first month, January 2007. However, after a year, not a single site had been launched under the OpenServing banner. The project had not issued any press releases since December 2006. Angela Beesley, a co-founder and vice president of Wikia described OpenServing as "never very popular or successful", and that the Wikia team's efforts had been refocused on wikia.com itself.
Currently, the Openserving.com domain name redirects to Wikia.com. OpenServing's closure was never formally announced.
