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.

IT LIIIIVVVVEEESS! :O
But seriously, thanks for the update. We (the comm) just needed some sort of sign that wiki.theppn is alive and you guys are working on it is all. We're sort of worried. :/
I'm glad to know it's not closing though! :D *is relieved* It's been down for a while so it's no wonder people starting wondering that, but I'll be looking forward to the day when it's finally up and running again.
Thanks for the quick updated, even if it's just to tell us you're alive. ♥

Best of luck getting everything up and running again, I'm really looking forward to seeing theppn back online! I didn't realize how much I used it until it was gone. You run a top-notch site, I really miss it!

It'll be a happy day when theppn comes back... ♥

I know its not right to copy the site but the information is user created so it's not really owned by theppn. Mind you I do not have nor know of any copy sites. I'm just pointing out the obvious.
Fri, Jan. 9th, 2009 02:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we know. =) But in similar cases, we have a license that doesn't allow copying to Wikipedia unless it's by the user who submitted the information. Isn't this the same?

I'm so happy that wiki will still be there.
I hope you all can solve whatever that is soon.

Oh, sorry. I'll stop updating the one at wikia then.
We were only trying to help. :(
You're looking for a host and wikia can host it.
I'm sure Angela can give adminship to those that were admin on theppn and you can have it as the new host, what's wrong with that?

We were just showing that the wiki is wanted, and if the backup really is fragged I've shown that it's possible to manually restore 1 page every 2-3 minutes from yahoo cache.

Thanks a bunch for saying this! Knowing that you guys are still working on things makes me feel a whole lot better. I, as I'm sure a lot of others, was wondering if I should turn to another Wiki...
I hope you get everything sorted out soon. Thanks again for the update, and maintaining such a massive, as well as massively loved website!

Woah, wiki.theppn actually responds now O__O
Fri, Jan. 9th, 2009 08:47 pm (UTC)
I've always tried to keep status updates going. (o_O);
Why wouldn't we respond?
