Hooray!Thanks to the support and generosity of the wonderful community we have here, we're back and I don't believe we have to worry about shutting down now or anytime in the near future.
Over the past couple of days, I've optimized the site and performed various upgrades both with the software and our hosting. Everything seems to be running smoothly, but I'm going to keep an eye on things and if we run into any future problems, I'll simply move us to a different server.
Again, I'd really like to say just how much I appreciate all of you, whether you were able to contribute or not. The feedback and an incredible support so many people have shown over the past couple of days definitely reminded me what an invaluable place this has grown to be over the past six years... one I never want to lose.
On one last note, I'd like to apologize if anyone was distressed by our recent issues. To be clear, I have backups of everything on this site, so stories will never be lost permanently no matter what happens. However, when it comes to anything you post on the internet that is particularly valuable to you, it's always a great idea to keep a backup copy on your local hard drive anyway.
For now, let's just all breathe a huge sigh of relief. And please feel free to dive right back in and read, update and review whatever stories you like.
It's great to be back!
