I sincerely hope you put the servers back up, but if you are unwilling to do so, outsource the master server to someone who is willing to keep the community going.
They did announce quite a while back (in a weekly bulletin, can provide a link on request) that they would be closing them down, but seemed to have left them open on community request. As far as I knew the Halo 2 servers were back up and running as of a few days ago
Servers were online a couple days ago as I tried it.
But I just right now and yeah the server list isn't refreshing, hopefully this is just a temporary thing.

Here's the thing, as long as Games for Windows LIVE is up and running (which is it), the servers for Halo 2 Vista should be as well.
Not just because of the achievements tied into it, but also for the general moral of it.

I am paying for a gold subscription for LIVE, pretty much every other 360 game from launch's servers are still up.
Countless GFWL game servers are still working.
343i should keep the servers up and running.
So are they down D: I just spent all night trying to figure out why Live was greyed out in my menu :l

It shouldn't be greyed out, you should be able to still get into the server browser just nothing will show up.
If it's greyed out that might mean you're not logged into GFWL maybe.
I'm signed in to live, I just can't select Network or Live, It was working fine until I updated to win10 :'( All I can find about it online is it's an activation error maybe? But when I launched it asked for my key and I put it in..not really sure what else I can do :l Campaign works fine at least :)

I had problems installing on Windows 10 as well.

Did you install the "Games for Windows LIVE" client?
That solved all my GFWL problems when I tried to get in, I don't know how it fixed it though.
