An alternative to Formspring. Closed on 2015-04-01. Relaunched shortly on 2015-04-18. Finally closed again on 2016-06-12. They seem to have opened back up on 2017-03-31. [1]


Closure was announced on 2015-03-27 on Twitter.

Due to personal problems and general burnout of the project leaders, Retrospring will shut down on 1st April (in 4 days) [2] Also, before you think it is: No, it's not an april fools joke. (Bad chosen date, of course, but better at the beginning of the month and [3] announced instead of putting the site off suddenly without notice) [4]

If you want to get all data associated with your user account, send an email using the email address that's associated with your (c)[5] (c) Retrospring account to and wait a little while [6]

Also, regarding the Patreon page, we already sent a deletion request for the page, but they seem to take a while. [7] If you want to get sure not to pledge more out of accident, please cancel your patronship! [8]


Somehow, the site went back mere 18 days after the announced shutdown.

Retrospring is back, and now entirely open to developer contributions, help us improving and fixing the service! [9]

"Why I decided to open up Retrospring again":

Apparently, they "can guarantee" Retrospring won't go down again.

Final closure

Retrospring closed again, this time for good, on 2016-06-12. This happened without an ArchiveTeam member noticing, so no action was done.

Relaunch - Again

Retrospring reopened again after a year after they last closed. [10]
