WWoEC's Closure.

A large chunk of artists were displaced after the site shut down with nowhere to go, but since it was closed early, no one was able to get them word of a place to go. You don't have to if you don't want to but word spreads quicker when more people read it. I was hoping and of you may be able to write a journal about the sites closing and that TJA and Pal are pretty much stepping up to handle the influx of homeless artists and willing to offer any help we can to assist them in migrating. It's sad to see a site almost a long lived at TJA go down. But we're here for everyone who was left out in the cold but the early wipe.

I didn't even get to read about any closure.  I was on the site yesterday afternoon, and today it's gone. D:

I'm seriously going to miss the forums, as that's the only place I really visited.  Where do I go now for my loli and shota translations and one-shot drawings? :(

There's also artists I liked, such as Cheo_D, Garabage, Madoc, and a few others.  Some have been absent for a while, but I always hoped they'd return.  I know Cheo posts his loli/shota stuff on Violetchan.  Madoc and Garabage (as Garabatos) post on Pixiv, but both censor their art for that site.

What I'm saying is, I'm at a complete loss for where to go now. *cry*  If only someone could have bought at least the forums and kept them alive.

Well TJA doesn't have posting rules or need to censor, So you may want to let everyone know. 21 years up I'm sure we'll be around a whole lot more.. We pre date every other site including VCL.. We were around in the HTML 0.8 days LOL  BLINKING TEXT WOOO!

Supposedly they were going to be given a one week notice, that was posted yesterday, and the site is dead in the water today sadly.

Damn, wasn't expecting that. Didn't frequent it much anymore, but it was one of the sites that got me started. I'll really miss it

Losing a long lived site is never easy.. I've was on the edge with TJA years back , but 21 years into it and the fact that TJA and Pal are a pretty solid unit together I hope we'll be able to offer assistance to those who need it.

What happened? Any reasons given for the closure?
cheetahjab

I honestly can't comment on it as I was not following the issue. I'm just offering a solution.

What I hear is that server costs killed them..  (I read something about it from Cobra on the forum, just before the site dissapear)

There are a lot of low-cost, high-bandwidth providers out there such as OVH, Hetzner and (if you get a good deal) LeaseWeb. I think the problem is they were using a managed hosting provider, and they can get pricey - you're basically paying a premium for sysadmin services.

For comparison, Inkbunny costs about $10/day in terms of hosting expenses.

That's quite possible, too. Fifteen years is a long time!
If you don't have someone else to take over, closing down can appear the only solution.

Pandora's Box IS a great artist indeed, but despite the name, the artist is a HE, not a SHE. Just letting you know!

this could be the perfect chance for both IB and Weasyl to boost up their usefulness and fame by 200%

and for FA to be envious by 1000% x3

i jokes...but in all fairness..how great would be if IB and Weasyl would host those "homeless" artists as an help to them?
cheetahjab

Already doing that at jabarchives.com since it's not all furry most have moved to tja or pal
