Hi guys, this is a further update to the status of http://www.sinful-desire.org/
[You can reference to our last post here
So when we last updated you, we were able to reach the owner of the site in time and get permission formorgandawn
to pay the $120 hosting fee in time. So the sinful-desire
's hosting fees have been paid through December 2016. We were waiting to hear back from the archivist if she has plans to allow the archive to be managed by someone else (hopefully with a knowledge of e-Fiction, the software the site uses) or have it hosted at A03 but hadn't heard back yet.
We now face a new issue that we knew was approaching, the domain name is up for renewal
. Only the registered owner is allowed to pay the fee. We're trying to work with the the archive owner and the webhost/domain registrar to renew the domain name, but if that is unsuccessful, then the site could go down on March 17, 2015
.The only action item at this point
is if you are an author or a reader, please take steps to ensure your work or your favorite stories are backed up. A SIGNAL BOOST
of this message would be appreciated to spread the word so folks can grab what they need.
More news when/if we have it.
