Okay.. so here's what happened  
In short. We got TOS'd.

I'm pissed because the hosting company won't let me on there to get anything I need off there. And any attempts to contact them have been more or less ignored.

So I'm through with that hosting company. If you guys donated to the site, email me with the same email you used for the paypal and I'll see about a refund, if you really need it. I appreciate everything you guys did to help us run m&m. Keep in mind though that the refunds will come out of my own personal pocket, so it could take awhile as I get paid about once a month. My next payday will be on February 3.

m&m is by no means dead. Let me state that very very plainly. I love m&m as if it were my own child. So we will be completely reborn. And we will for at least the next week, be back to using the old m&m and free file hosts. The two file hosts we'll use exclusively are Mediafire and Megaupload.

Any questions, comments, concerns need to be made on this post.

I offer hosting space! I've realized that I've never used more then 10% of my bandwidth. Dude, seriously. Let me set you up!

And interestingly enough I learned I can use wordpress on my hosting. :D

I don't wanna impose on you. Who's your hosting company? how much bandwidth do you get total? (we were going through 500 GB / mo) How much disk space?
Sarah the crab: Crab Girlsarah_the_crab on January 14th, 2009 01:52 am (UTC)
Surpass Hosting and I've been with them since Nov 2004.
Bandwidth: about 4000GB give or take a few GB
Disk Space: 400GB and I'm using about 46GB of space give or take a GB

Alright. Let's iron out the details over AIM or email. Take your pick.

Oh man. Sorry to hear it. I'm glad to see you guys aren't giving up, though!

OMG. D: I'm so sorry to hear that! Hopefully this will all be sorted out soon.

Good thing we still have this LJ comm ♥

wow that's horrible! Thank-you for still trying to keep M & M going.
Wendyrikayla on January 14th, 2009 06:58 am (UTC)
Ouch. Who was your hosting company, out of curiousity?
Tanyasakurakessho on January 14th, 2009 12:02 pm (UTC)
Dreamhost actually. =\
Wendyrikayla on January 15th, 2009 01:20 am (UTC)
Aiye. Well, if you plan on getting a new host anytime soon, don't go with Netrillium either. :3
Tanyasakurakessho on January 15th, 2009 01:24 am (UTC)
Noted. ^^ I might go with Sarah's company, Surpass. It's nice and responsive adn not too expensive either.

I don't mind about the refund for my donation, as you know love this site as much as you :)
but, just curious, will the hosting company refund back our donations to you ? if not, then it's really sucks ^^
Tanyasakurakessho on January 14th, 2009 12:04 pm (UTC)
I don't think they will be. which is why anyone who wants refunds will be getting it out of my pocket.

And of course I love m&m. When you've done it as long as I have (4 years or more I think), how can you not?

I am completely stunned and shocked. Hope all will be fine. Yikes... what a bad service quality from the hosting site company ( I mean they ignore you and you can't even access the site <_<) Anyway... ganbatte ne. Love M&M comm~♥

Seriously, we'll stick with you and if donations are needed again, it's a done deal. You guys are an invaluable resource to me, since I cannot go within 100 miles of a torrent site on the University network.

D: M&M Ganbare!

Ueto Aya has a message for your ex-hosts. *points to icon*

Good luck sorting out your new hosts, and don't worry about paying back my donation. And if you need more, let me know. You guys have been amazing in the year-and-a-bit I've been a member.
rembluishrembluish on January 16th, 2009 06:32 pm (UTC)
That's terrible ; ; I did donate but I'm not worried about a refund though. When you get the new site up I'll donate again to help out I'm very sorry that this happened to begin with
桜井香津美shinwachou on January 20th, 2009 06:37 am (UTC)
Nah, keep the donation I made... You'll need it for the next webhost, anyway.
Vinzrealdx on January 21st, 2009 04:11 pm (UTC)
pheeew... I was wondering what was wrong with my comp. and only today I had the idea to check this community!
I guess, I'm a bit slow..

Oh well, I'm sorry about what happened. Thanks for everything that you've done and I do hope you'll keep the spirit high! =)
