Looks like y!gallery is down!

Saturday, February 11, 2012, 1:32 PM Pacific

Due to a hard drive failure, the site is closed until this issue is resolved. I would like to kindly remind our members that we're an old site that has not done a server upgrade in 5+ years... Donations to help for a better site and upgrade would be greatly appreciated.

Appropriate action has been raised with our hosting provider. Rest assured, the hard drive failure has not caused a total and complete data loss.

I have found out in the course of fixing this issue with our hosting provider, that we will have to move the server to another data center with a new server. So we will be migrating the data from one server to another. Sorry folks, but we'll be back online as soon as we can, but unfortunately that may take awhile.

However, there are places you can go.

Here is this [ profile] ygalfriends comm, with a friending meme. Maybe you can find some of your friends there.

Here is this [ profile] y_sanctuary community. Not much has been done with it, but maybe more will be now that the site is down.

Here is this chat room. Sometimes there are people in it, sometimes there are not!

Here is the y!gallery twitter account for news.

And this is just mine: when I stream, I'll post to this journal entry. track the comment if you want notifications :)

If you have relevant links or news please leave them in this journal entry. Also feel free to link to this. Hopefully y! will be back up and running soon! :)

wish we'd had a little warning...

I agree. I guess it's been threatening, what with all the terrible slowdowns we've been having. I'm waiting to see if they know exactly what they're going to do, and if they'll be able to do it, before I donate anything.

I wish that there was another way to donate other than through Amazon. Do we know of anyone we 'trust' that has an amazon account that could act as a collector?
Did that even make sense?
Hope y!gal is back online soon cause I am going to miss it.

There are a handful of people I'd trust to do it, but that could get complicated. It does make sense :) It's like, the people I'd trust to do it, I wouldn't want to put them in the position where they had to XD

I hope it's back soon too! It'll be sad if it's down for v-day/the site's anniversary, but it looks like it may be down for some time. Booo. At least we have other places, though none of them really fill the void that ygal leaves XD

I was smack in the middle of reading fic too. D:

Also, I know it's not a fix for all of y-gal, but there are several LJ comms that would be great places to post art & fic until y-gal comes back up. chad_ishida, anyone? ;)

If [ profile] liralen weren't visiting right now, I'd probably be pulling my hair out. XD

Thank you for posting all the useful links!
