(Belated) heads-up - details on that backup program are now posted here.
Everything seems to be moving hosts these days. I think I've got a copy of everything I want to keep anyway. There might be some really old stories from 2003 which I'll have a look for. Thanks for the heads up and lets hope it goes well.
Emimar? Is that you?
Back up your work! >>> The boards are moving. <<<
okay, okay, this nonsense had gone on just long enough... becuase we all know that if we are being told to back up our work, then it's becuase fanfic will be completely obliterated in the move, and we'll all have to start from scratch...
ATTN ALL INDEXERS AND THREAD HOSTS ?
Please make special note of the following recent announcement in Comms:
If you are currently the host of a thread that uses a sock (i.e. Prolific_Ficcer, OCDatabaseSock, Creche_Master, Jaina_Jag_Index, Luke_Mara_Index, BetaReaderIndex, etc. etc.), make sure that the sock has a current, working, private email account in order to ensure that you will be able to access the password for the sock after the move.
I changed the address for the HanLeiaFanFicGuru sock to mine some time ago, so the Bespin CafÃ© should be covered...
I just hope there'll be some easy way to convert the "old" links into "new" ones, because I would hate to see the Index go wasted *crossing virtual fingers*
MORE INFO ABOUT THREAD SOCKS
I was curious about passwords vs. email addys and asked about it in ModSquad. Here's the answer:
So spread the word! I stopped counting at 25 threads here in FFR that are run by socks and we'd really like to minimize how many accounts we have to get an Admin to reset after the move.
This shall not happen. Not as long as I have breath.
Ah, another move. It brings back the good old days...
