Sources tell Advocate.com that word came down Friday afternoon that OurChart.com will be shutting off all content effective immediately. The social networking site was born out of the hugely successful Showtime series The L Word and was the brainchild of the network and L Word creator Ilene Chaiken.

Sources tell Advocate.com that word came down Friday afternoon that OurChart.com will be shutting off all content effective immediately. The social networking site launched in 2006 and was born out of the hugely successful Showtime series The L Word.

Editor Grace Moon notified the staff of contributors and bloggers via e-mail on Friday afternoon.

Moon said in the e-mail that the entire staff had been let go and that Friday would be her last day.

According to the e-mail, the site will remain online but no new editorial content will be posted.

The site was the brainchild of L Word creator Ilene Chaiken and the Showtime network, and it figured prominently in several episodes. According to sources, the announcement came as a complete surprise to the staff.

The site sought to compete with the Logo-run AfterEllen.com and the just-launched SheWired.com, Advocate.com's sister site.

Staff members at OurChart.com could not be reached for comment late Friday afternoon. (Ross von Metzke, The Advocate)
