Giant edit: Dokuga got over $1000 in donations last night! It came back up this morning... so amazing! The community is really supportive!
A) Hell Girl is THE. SHAT. I love it sooo much. ;w; I bought the first season on Dvd UUUGH NEED TO DO FANART.
B) Okami Art Book should be back in stock this month OH YEEEH.
C) So... a site I frequent.. actually, pretty much the one I frequent the MOST is having money troubles. The site head went AWOL and the site went down today... apparently it's overdue $900+ dollars in payments. And we need to pay that JUST to get the site back up, and then another $400+ a quarter to keep it running.
This site means a lot to a lot of people. It's not just a site to post your fanart and fanfiction- we're a family there. The Chatroom always has people in it. If I'm having a bad day I can just go in there and whine and they'll talk me through it and get me back on the Happy Train. It's an escape for a lot of people- but we're still REAL there, we don't have to put up internet personas.
It's a giant support system to new and old artists, writers, reviewers.. or just people in general.
This is really.. upsetting, I don't know.
I've been thinking of opening up quick discounted commissions to help pay for some of the cost of getting it back up. It's amazing how many people are coming together to help with this... I only wish I could do more.
One of the best sites that has ever been made is going down due to a crisis, and we need help getting it back up. A 2$ donation from 600 people and we'd be all set for another year of awesomeness. Lol. UUUUGH. WHY LIFE WHYYYY.
