Closing The Vampire Diaries Site

I’ve made the decision – I will close https://www.thevampirediaries.info on July 10, 2019 when the domain expires. See the previous post for reasons why.

I’m giving blanket permission to upload the stuff at https://www.thevampirediaries.info to other sites, on the condition that you credit Ariane of so-obsessed.com as the source.

Details for reasons why are in a previous post:

Maybe Closing Down The Vampire Diaries Site

Server Problem With A Few Sites

EDIT – this is fixed!

Some sites are experiences 500 Internal Server Error:

My host posted on Twitter that there was a short downtime not 30 minutes ago, and that the server didn’t recover/restart automatically. I’m going to wait a bit and see if the issue is fixed; if not, I’ll open a support ticket. I’ll update this post when everything’s working again.

Maybe Closing Down The Vampire Diaries Site

I might be closing my The Vampire Diaries site when the domain expires on July 10, 2019. I’m seriously leaning in that direction.

It’s a big site, takes up a lot of my mental energy due to having to worry about it due to sheer size – and I do know already that if there’s another server and/or host disaster in which I might lose some/all content, or have to transfer my sites to yet another host… I no longer have the will or the energy to do all that work yet again with this particular site.

I haven’t yet made the final decision. I still like having this site (even if I don’t love it anymore) so it’s a hard one to make. I also kind of hate the thought of closing the site down so soon after completing the gallery 🙁 So I’m also considering the option of renewing the domain for one more year and then closing down in a year if I still feel like that.

Anyway, that what’s going on with me. Wanted to give you a heads-up just in case I end up not renewing, so you’d have as much time as possible to download everything you from here.

 

I’d also be open to adoption – if you want to adopt my TVD site, I’d be happy to give it to you along with the domain name. Just get in touch with me at intotheshadows@gmail.com and we’ll talk.

Changes + Maybe Deleting Sites

Update…

March 31, 2019I’ve decided to let crystalfires.net expire on May 11, 2019 and delete the site when it does. Things I’ll keep will be transferred to my creative site https://www.so-obsessed.com. https://gallery.crystalfires.net will not be preserved, all the screencaps there will be unavailable once the domain has expired so if there’s anything there you want, get it now!

I’m also leaning towards deleting https://www.vampirediaries.info, https://www.xenacentral.net and https://www.star-trek.info soon, but haven’t made a final decision yet. If there’s anything there you want, get it now!

 

I feeling strongly again like I want to reduce my sites… really, really want to have fewer of them right now again… I’ve been feeling like this on and off for the past several years, which has lead to me deleting many of my sites. In an effort not to make hasty decisions right now, there’s going to be a few changes around here:

In an effort to lessen my work load I’m going to stop posting screencaps updates from my other sites here, effective immediately. To clean things up, I’ve removed the old screencaps posts.

In the future, I’ll only post an update about the screencaps uploaded to https://gallery.crystalfires.net here, and if I’m planning on posting whole season/series, I might make that announcement once it’s complete. So check out https://gallery.crystalfires.net and my other individual sites if you want to know the updates.

I might not post all screencaps updates to my Dreamwidth. I will propably post them to my Tumblr, but no promises. So basically, bookmark the site URLs you’re interested in and check out those sites when you want to know if there’s been any updates.

Also be aware that I’m really feeling like deleting https://gallery.crystalfires.net so if there’s anything uploaded there you want, get it ASAP. I’m not promising it’ll stay up. The domain crystalfires.net will expire on May 11 – I may or may not renew it. If I don’t, things I’ll keep will be transferred to my creative site https://www.so-obsessed.com

Other sites in the danger zone: https://www.vampirediaries.info, https://www.xenacentral.net, https://www.star-trek.info and maybe https://www.zahn-mcclarnon.net I love all these sites would be sad to lose them, but like I said I’m strongly feeling like I want to reduce the number of sites I’m responsible for. And TVD, Xena and Star Trek sites are huge each, so they take up a lot of my mental energy due to having to worry about them due to sheer size.

Updating DNS

Some of my sites were using outdated name servers and DNS stopped resolving today. I’ve updated them and the sites will start resolving again as soon as the updated DNS propagates everywhere. Shouldn’t take more than 24 hours, max.
