Roswell - The Promise

Postby Kzinti_Killer » Mon Feb 01, 2010 12:09 am

I was reading fic there just yesterday, then it went poof. http://www.roswell-thepromise.com/fanfic.html

Does anyone know if it went smash, or can I relax and take this as a temporary glitch?

Hey Rick.

Yeah, I noticed the same thing today when I went on the site. However, when I put the address in the search engine, and I hit the word "cached", it came up, but if you try to go any further from there, it will just bring you back to your default search engine. :(

Memo to self. If it comes back up I'm going in there and archiving every last story.

When I looked up the whois info it says that the last update was today, so maybe it's just temporary.
Sometimes the nameservers can go haywire, at least I'm hoping that's all it is. Thanks for telling us
about this though :)
My fanart/cover art rules:
1) I'm a pro freelance webdesigner so I may not be able to get the art to you overnight, fanart is free time hobby stuff.
2) I do this for free because I'm a fan first and I like to help other people. Don't take my generosity for granted or I won't do it anymore.
3) I usually charge extra for more than 3 changes, so that's the limit. A huge deal :)

Yeah but it also says that the domain name expired in December. Not good. Not good at all. I dropped an email to Bixie to see what's up.

The last message of the admins was that with February there were to come new updates for the gallery and in general updates. It could be that it's a server problem (it wouldn't be the first time).I was just last night on roswell-the promise looking at the gallery.

I also hope that we didn't lose another Roswell fansite. There are great stories and it would be a pity to lose them. We'll see what's really going on.

I do know Bixie isn't apart of the site anymore, it said so in an update. I hope there is still time to archive the stories if it doesn't come back up. :?

I heard from Bixie. The owner allowed the domain to expire, so they had to get a new one. The site is back with a new URL. Here you go. http://www.roswell.withoutshadow.com/
