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.

I'm going to a be a bitch here. wiki.ThePPN is down for -like you said it yourself- an unreasonable amount of time. It went up a few months ago, and went down quicker then it went up. You guys have managed to run wiki.ThePPN for quite a long time with minor downtime. But due to the massive amount of downtime you guys have lost a lot of trust. And bringing little to no updates whilst there are literally more then 10.000 people waiting for news isn't going to help either. People got tired of waiting and decided to create a new Wiki. Now that these wiki's are growing wiki.ThePPN suddenly posts an update that there will be important updates soon, and stresses out that other wiki's are taking your information without your permission. Have you ever considered that the same people who gave you the information are taking it back and placing it in a place that is accessible?

wiki.ThePPN is not the place to go to. A server error is not as useful as you might think. Bring up your site before you make statements like that. 3 months of downtime on the Internet is a decade in real life.

Never the less good luck rebuilding your wiki, as you guys were the place to go to.

Can't find my password so replying anon.

You are right, it is an unreasonable amount of time, and the lack of information does mean that everybody is left pissing in the wind wondering what to do with their free time. What has happened is unfortunate, and the frustration that you all feel is only a fraction of what Wapi and SA are going though. The length of this outage is squarely on my shoulders I am prioritizing family and work above bringing the site online. Christmas and new year split between Japan and England plus all the end of year wrapping up my team needs to cover in the office means no attention left for the wiki.

I agree that it's unreasonable for there not to be a source of info like this not available, but the lack of money and/or people working on it is to blame. Since it's no one's job, it's simply a matter of priorities. It's giving people useful factual information about a topic we care about vs. trashing the self-esteem of 12-year-olds to boost your own ego. You can argue all the want, but just look at which one you've spent more time on.
