Update: James does not have a general email, to my knowledge.

[email protected] is the only one I have for him and at the moment, it does not work.

Geez . . .

A couple of weeks have passed.
I'm afraid that was it. Sad

Thankfully the way back machine still works.

Yeah, looks like another one has gone dark.

Every time this happens we lose more irreplaceable stories.

Crying or Very sad

When IC Stories goes dark, you'll know I'm dead.

Of course, since I host PlanetFurry as well, it may go dark too.

Just something to keep in mind.

Cheers!!

My will says the kids have to maintain kellanmeigh.com - may never be new stuff after I pass through the veil, the old stuff will still be there to read.

Well the site has gone completely blank now.
So it (The Address) technically still exists it seems. But there is no ad or reference to a host.
Don't know what to make of it to be honest.

hosted on GoDaddy, so there's a strike. Not supposed to go dark until 10/19/2022. Says zztudios.com domain belongs to GoDaddy, another strike. This ain't looking good.
I suspect GoDaddy jumped the gun and deleted the site after warning that it was going dark in October. I could be wrong, though.
Word to the wise: always own your domain name, never allow scum like GoDaddy take care of that for you.

Wow ... EXan is correct. The zzstudios URL is up for grabs at GoDaddy.

They don't own it - they no longer host it, as far as I can determine. They would "broker" the deal for you to buy it, if you had $$$ plus a 20% commission to GoDaddy. They say $69.00 might do it, but I doubt that. Gonna look into this, since a non-furry doesn't need this domain.
BTW, it's a good idea to own the .com, .net and the .org domains as a group if you own your domain name.

Hey, made an account recently.

I managed to get everything from zz-studios up until chapter 106 thanks to wayback mahcine, so not eveything is lost. I can post a link here if everyone is OK with it so anyone can download the books I have.

I kinda have a plan for storing and hosting such fiction with the permission of the writers of course. (Will make separate thread for this).

Talk soon, cheers!

Wow! Let a furry site go dark and all of the sudden, everyone is interested in that now-defunct site!

LOL!

Anyway, are you planning to develop a web presence to host these files? I had actually thought of the same thing myself. If you need help with any aspect of site programming, let me know by PM. Also, If you're looking for a good host, Omnis Shared Web Hosting is my domain host and their servers are fast and cheap to use by the year. They can also help obtain your domain name, too.

Actually, I had that thought for a while. I didn't even notice that zzstudios was gone until 3 days ago. But there are some good writers whom work is vanishing and I don't want to let that go to waste.

Thanks for the tip about omnis, will look into that Smile

I talked to James. He'll be putting the story back on line. It was just getting expensive with the old hosting.

For anyone interested, I still have a lot of the Raccoon's Bookshelf stories archived.

Cheers!!

That's great! Is there a chance you could share them with us?

I've been looking for an archive for a long time now.

Great news! Very Happy

Glad to hear that James is doing well and we'll be seeing the Stories back online in the future.

You wouldn't have Rava Purrs stories as well do you?
Read the first seven or nine chapters before they seem to vanish completely. The way back machine is no help either, it can find her site but none of the stories.
