That tells all Spore users that EA doesn't give a sh*t (pardon my french) about us. I mean, EA is so selfish. Like that time when EA only gave US users Bot parts! And now, they are DITCHING SPORE?! Someone should really make a stand to this. :cry:

so, wait, the sporepedia and spore.com is going to be gone forever?
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

This is most definitely a rumor. Upon clicking the source link of that article you are referencing, (that says it directs to IGN) it turns out to be a trap link to an amusing flash animation.

Long story short it was an April Fools joke.

That being said though, knowing the nature of EA, they will eventually be shut down, and its a miracle they made it this far. Luckily the only place I've been sharing my creations as of late is here (none of the more complex creations made with vanilla spore really come out with Dark-Injection installed anyways, no big deal, makes it easier to personalize my game.) so aside from being able to log on I don't think Spore servers shutting down should break the game. If it does though that would blow.

If you can still buy spore than the servers won't go down :D
Modding makes spore almost always better on every way :D

they wont shut down something that still makes them money, besides what they developed in spore they use in their newer games as well, the monsters in the new SimCity game for 2013 are created using spore as a basis, as well as darkspore was based off the spore concept I say we are still a ways off on spore servers being shut down

Nah, I'm still getting fresh new creations from other players every morning, so there's no way that they'd shut down something that is still full of people!

I don't know if it has or not, I saw that same article...

It makes sense to, becuase I've also been finding that a lot of people haven't been able to login anymore. I have that same problem. Maybe it's just me (also, is this the right place for this?). Are you guys having any trouble loging in?
