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.

Thanks for replying.

Many a time I've needed some info and googled what I was searching for, adding theppn in the search terms as that always used to find exactly what I wanted, and now it takes a lot longer as sometimes nowhere else seems to have what I'm looking for. So the wiki is definitely missed, by many people. (Earlier I even found someone had posted a question on yahoo questions or google questions or whatever the sites called, asking where the site had gone!).

I hope you can get it back soon, and if it's true that the database really is unrecoverable as mentioned in an earlier thread then it shouldnt be hard for a good coder like womby to use the manual procedure I worked out and automate it.

Ah I wasn't aware of the ads, I just logged out and there's a Ringo Starr video right in the middle of the Matsuura Aya page. :bangs-head-on-wall.gif:
