[mod] update!  
Well here's what's been going on. Besides my head feeling like it may split apart.

Thanks to the ever lovely sarah_the_crab we're working on a brand spanking new wordpress. She's gonna let us host there for a while. And while she says to stay as long as you like, you guys can be mighty big leechers. So I'm gonna work extra hard to get our own hosting back again, just under a different company.

Most of all though a HUGE HUGE HUGE thanks to all of you who are supporting us. I cannot tell you how much of a motivator it is.

So if you have any friends in m&m, shout it out that m&m ain't dead by no means. And, hopefully, within a week we'll be back at wordpress.

What changes can you expect on the new wordpress?

Well for one, it'll be faster. This isn't Dreamhost anymore, so the hosting is tons faster. And as always if you have Google Gears installed and enabled for our m&m wordpress, then it'll be even faster.

It'll also have a new layout, duh. I'm having fun experimenting with widgets.

I don't think I'll be doing any discographies that will be directly hosted. We'll code them and put them up but they may just have Megaupload and/or Mediafire links. I'm still debating. As I said, you guys can be leechers and I do not want to use up all of Sarah's bandwidth.

That's it for the time being. If you have any questions or such you wanna ask please do so here or email me at silvertsukuyomi [@] gmail [.] com - I'll try my best to answer them.

Here's a small preview for you guys: (we're already starting to crosspost this past week's and last week's entries and the pvs I had uploaded just before!)

Sounds cool =). And the mediafire/megaupload links sound just fine, I know part of the draw of m&m was the direct links, but during the transition period between hosts, I know I certainly don't mind downloading taking a little more time =).

Glad everything is kind of working out.

The new layout is kewl :D It's fine that it's just MU / MF since I really don't download that much on MM.

Sorry for being a lousy contributor these days... Ahh need to get my ass up again and share stuff
Tanyasakurakessho on January 15th, 2009 06:02 pm (UTC)
lol well you guys can always post. It's just a matter of the webspace. Currently, contributors will not be able to have webspace. So you guys will be stuck on free links unless you specifically ask me to upload something to the space for you. =\ Best I can do with what I've got.

good luck getting everything back up!! ♥

hehe I just made this entry public. If you want to join and friend the m&m LJ comm then go right ahead. We're still posting the latest downloads, just those entries are friends-locked.

good! i was really worried there for a while!!!

i'm glad m&m is still here to brighten the world. :D

The layout looks smashing :D

And if you need financial funding and what... ask. *nods* I'm a little strapped for cash, but if there's a need, I can help out a little. :)

That's what puzzled me at first. I thought perhaps they lost their webhost due to lack of funds, but then I remembered that me and several others had just donated enough to cover all of 2009. O.o

Lovely new layout! Sarah is awesome... how cool that the interim m&m is joint effort with her.

Thanks for keeping us updated and for putting in so much work into the site.

You know, I didn't realize how much I depended on mm for my music until I try to find some albums that was hosted on your server elsewhere.

UGH. Frustration. No MU links, no bit rate info, album covers, no organization, no anything I've come to take for granted here.

So thank you for all that you've done and will do. This server change has just reminded me just how kickass your work is. It's like oink, for japanese music.

Which brings me to the point: if I ever get a life time premium account with MU, would it be possible for me to let you upload albums there? Since premium account links are never deleted, right? So it's like, reliable backups! Or I get a premium account in your sites name and I just share the account with you. Or something. If you think there's something to be worked out, email me (arkanefyre[at]gmail.com) and I'll see what I can do.

Wow. That's quite the compliment. I'm very very honored.

All of us mods actually have a premium account that we share. It comes in handy because so much is uploaded to MU. It's not lifetime though. But with MU, there's always a chance that the links will die if no one clicks on them or reports them. So it's always iffy.

Thanksf or the offers of help anyway though. We always appreciate it.

So happy you guys are still with us, I almost went into withdrawal when I kept seeing those server error pages. I miss you guys, if you need money for hosting please let us know or a link to donate.

I wondered what happened (to the website). And then I finally thought "Hmm, I wonder if they've posted anything to the former LJ comm", heh. :P
