58468_0: [wiki sysop post] an update to let you know there is an update coming

I will tell you what I do know at the moment.

Wiki.theppn is NOT closed and any copies of the site should not be supported. We do not back them or have any affiliation with them and they are essentially taking our information without permission.

I heavily apologize for the downtime and my own lack of checking this community and setting things straight. I didn't realize there were so many people waiting for a simple status update, but believe me, I understand the feeling. I also understand you want a source for Asian pop culture information, but we are the place to go to, even though we've been experiencing unreasonable downtime.

Please, just hang in there a little bit longer. I'll be able to give you concrete information soon.

One helpful thing that might be done until theppn wiki is back online might be doing a 302 temporary redirect for all wiki.theppn.org requests to a static page with updates? If you guys are running Apache I can probably provide a rewrite rule to do that. Just thinking out loud a little.

That's a great idea. =) I'll relay it to Womby!

To dedicated users like us, posting an update about thePPN's status makes sense already. At least we know that the staff is persevering to bring it back. Something as simple as that will give hope to the hundreds of people thirsty for information that only thePPN can gather.

Good luck in everything!

You have no right to tell people you are the place to go. If others wish to open, manage and run a site that doesn't go down every other month, they have every right to as long as they don't copy/paste your content.

I love love wikkitheppn and I will wait as long as it takes because its so worth waiting for it to be back up. I hate having to use other places to get my information..especially discographies. >

Glad for some info, although I'll agree that the comments about the other wikis are uncalled for. Theppn was great, and if it gets back up and running again soon I'm sure it'll be great again in time, but the info isn't theirs alone. Like it or not, info does get copy-pasted (it's the quickest way, after all) from place to place, from sales figures to quick descriptions of albums or artists. I get why you made the statement the way you did, but it did seem like a slap in the face to people who wanted to keep the premise alive, albeit on other sites.

Oh, and that being said, if it does ever get back up, it WILL be a huge relief because I HATE having to go to the Jpopmusic forums or Ayumi Hamasaki Sekai for news. (They're pretty much the only two fan-maintained forums that update on a constant basis, but I swear to god I want to kill half the people who post at those place.)

Hi. It has been created a new source of Jmusic
http://j-ongaku.org/wiki/Main_Page
It's like wiki but we need to create many pages. I am not to make you forget about wiki no way! But since wiki is currently offline we can create a new one.

The people who're being negative in these comments clearly haven't read or anything, or just don't care. But what can you do its the internet.

Don't feed the trolls. :)

Glad to hear that wiki is comin' back. We're just getting past the holidays so I'm not surprised at all that the site is not back up yet. Real life should take priority.

As for the copies I did notice one of the new wikis using the theppn's logo's and such so I agree that copycats shouldn't be supported. As long as the site isn't using theppn's logos and such though than it's fine.
Content and otherwise yeah doesn't belong to theppn and if the original contributors want to send their info to another site fine whatever. But the admins are also entitled to say whatever they like, it's called free speech. :P It's up to you guys whether or not you want to listen and whether or not you want to continue using theppn or go to another wiki. It's not a big deal either way, to each their own.

Thank you very much for the update. ^^ Can't wait to see the site back up. I miss the site <3 it's been very helpful and continues to be one of my favorite sources of information.

Way to generalize. Or maybe the people who're being negative in these comments take offense to sanctimonious statements made by the OP towards people who bear an interest in either keeping the idea of wiki.theppn alive or branching it off. We know damn well what the message said, and we give a crap, but we disagree with the tone it took towards others. I guess you just didn't read our replies or the original post, or you just didn't care. But what can you do? It's the internet. Seriously, just because someone has something less-than-sunny to say doesn't make them a troll. Don't be so stuck-up.

Sorry, but I've been following this for a while now, as a regular viewer of the ppn (also contributed a slight bit), and this is what comes to my mind.

Is there some sign-up page where we can get updated when the page is back up and running? I really want to see the site back up so I can look up some album information.

what's the hold-up? It seems to me that if a backup can be used, the website would've been available months ago. Are you retyping all/most of the info?

Updates please! :)

thank you! :)

Well, finally relieved from hearing a status update from you guys~ wiki.theppn is no doubt a top-source for people who want to discover J-Culture and Music!

Keep it up, looking forward to seeing the re-open of wiki.theppn!!!

I'm so excited for the comeback of the site, I've missed it so effing much! Any idea when it might re-open at all?

Any updates? I'm losing hope about this site. I put some of my time to update some of my favorite artist's pages. I just don't want all the effort to go to waste.
