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.

At least some kind of feedback from Wiki.theppn, however it's a little odd one:
"copies of the site should not be supported"
Why ? I just don't understand why. It sounds like that the theppn owns the information on it which is simply not true. It belongs to the public, Wiki.theppn has nothing to do with it. If the people decide to support any other site, they can. And anyways what are we talking about ? Wiki.theppn still doesn't exist. How could we support it..

Why should we wait ? There are other wikis on the net.

(Anonymous): A thought

I think that what they meant about not supporting other sites was beacuse some sites are taking ownership or implying affiliation to the original wiki.theppn. I saw one even using the same logo and clearly saying that since they couldn't repair the old database they were going to start from scrap, clearly letting everybody understand that they were the ones in charge of the original wiki.theppn.
I'm not saying that those sites should not be supported, on the contrary, they could be a fine back up for when theppn goes down again, but they should say they are other poeple and be clear about it and come up with their own logos and stuff!
I'm glad to receive news about the original wiki.theppn being scheduled to be up again, it's been sorely missed and deeply needed!
So HURRY UP! ;)

Laters guys!

That was exactly what I meant, thank you. =) I kind of fail at getting my point across sometimes.
