Just letting everyone know that within a week's time all of the website's contents, including the episodes, graphics, etc. will be run through livejournal. In other words there will no longer be a website for the virtual season, but it will be run from here. I know that sounds rather drastic, but once all of the changes are set in place I think it'll actually be easier. IF you do not have a livejournal account remember that they are FREE and there is now an option where it can be a paid account, but with adds I believe.
The reason for this change is quite simple. I can't really afford hosting costs and I feel really wierd continuing to ask for donations. I just don't want the virtual series to turn into a money whore or something, so I'd rather downsize it just a little then to ask for more support. Though any support that you do give is of course appreciated and you can still donate if you want, it'll just go for contining to keep the lj paid (as i REALLY hate adds) and we're still keeping the forum and I eventually want to upgrade that to the next level. I would even pay for the website out of pocket but I just don't have money and I really don't have time either. So I think running this from livejournal will be the best option. Trust, that I'm still going to strive to make this a legacy to the fandom and everything will still be in as best quality as possible.
The website will not be taken away right off the bat. For one I need to move everything over, which will take some time (so expect an influx of posts), I want everyone to get a chance to update their bookmarks, and I already paid for the month of June, as I mentioned in the last post. So at least that gives me time to move everything. I really do think this will work from livejournal and maybe it'll be more functional then the website. It'll just take some getting used to. I'm also going to send out a mass email to volunteers sometime soon because we are also downsizing in that department as well.
I'm going to be asking some volunteers to be co-writers and some to stick with being graphic designers and unfortunetly some people's services will no longer be needed. So if you are on staff then be on the look out of that soon.
If there are any questions at all please let me know.
