So after a couple of days it seems like more people cared then didn’t care to know what’s going on.
But before that, a comment was raised about possibly adding twitter and/or facebook buttons to things? I honestly don’t know why you would want that, cause I don’t tend to use that stuff for this kind of stuff (let me know please, I’m curious!) but I can look into that if the call is strong enough. So that means to find out…another poll!
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
Anyway, you wanted to know why we need to be prepared for a possible move so I will tell you. I believe in transparency to some level, so letting you know why may help you remember the backup plan in case the site does suddenly disappear.
As of right now the state of Takamaruyo is in question. I’m not saying this to cause a panic or to make people try to convince them otherwise, but as of this moment there is an uncertainty if Takamaruyo will remain. Normally, I wouldn’t bring this up to you, my readers here, because TKMR is not Nantonaku, but if you haven’t noticed by now, for the past 6 months or so we’ve been hosted on Takamaruyo.net.
When that switch over happened, I mentioned that at the time I didn’t feel like I could pay for the domain not just because of money but because of responsibility, and knowing how far behind I still am now, I can’t say I’m ready to own the site in that way yet.
Now with TKMR possibly considering letting their site expire, it would mean that this would with it. If they stay we’ll be fine, but I don’t know which direction things will go. I am working on securing another location IF that worst case scenario happens, but if for some reason there is trouble, or if I can’t get it down in time, we may have issues.
To summarize, there are 3 possible situations:
1. TKMR renew their site, we stay alive, everyone happy
2. TKMR decide not to renew their site, we move, most people happy
3. TKMR decide not to renew their site, I can’t secure a place right away, we in limbo but I will try to get back and tell you where we are, we mostly happy.
And that’s what could happen. So now you know, and knowing is hal….I’m sorry it’s like 7am and I’m on the sleeping side not the waking side of a day.
