I haven't visited the SLICK in years; I go straight to the wiki now.  Between broken links and lack of design discussion, SLICK wasn't useful anymore.  And with the transition from monochrome stashes to Treehouse sets, SLICK is even less relevant for sorting, a feature that the wiki couldn't match but is slowly working up to via Categories.

<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>I agree.  The SLICK site is reference in many 
places, online and in print, usually with no mention of the Icehouse Games 
Wiki.  Although SLICK was actually where I first started looking for 
new Icehouse rules, having now been introduced to the Wiki, it is clear that the 
elder statesman is obsolete, and in fact may be hurting the proliferation of all 
things Icehouse.</FONT></DIV>

  <DIV><BR></DIV>Thinking about the whole Rabbit Wiki v Icehousegames Wiki made 
  me suddenly ask myself, "What about SLICK? Why is it still around?"<BR><BR>* 
  SLICK is at a Looney-maintained site, so it's as persistent as the whole 
  company.<BR>* SLICK is not a wiki, so it's maintained internally only, by the 
  (very busy, shorthanded) company.<BR><BR>* Icehousegames.org has a TON more 
  games than SLICK.<BR>* SLICK seems to have some games that are NOT on the wiki 
  and need to be "ported" to it.<BR><BR>* SLICK is VERY old and its game rules 
  are probably obsolete, for games also on Icehousegame.org and being polished 
  there but not copied back to SLICK.<BR>* SLICK could be considered a 
  historical artifact (more so, if a link to Icehousegame.org is right at the 
  top, clarifying that IHG.org is the actual "place to be" now).<BR><BR>* SLICK 
  is mentioned in older news articles--yep, that post about the BBC coverage of 
  Icehouse reminded me of dear old dottering SLICK. But HTML *does* support the 
  REDIRECT tag, to bounce folks straight to the IHG.org Wiki, if SLICK is 
  completely dismantled (after porting extra games over).<BR><BR>Thoughts,
