We are back online!! Thank you all so much for your donations. In less than four hours we were able to raise enough money to bring WF back online. WritingForums.org went offline earlier today due to an unpaid hosting bill. Up until a few months ago, the forum's advertising revenue covered our entire server bill. After the software upgrade, advertising revenue was cut by two thirds. Since then, I’ve been paying the difference out of pocket. You might have noticed an increase in ads over the past month – this was my last attempt at covering the different between forum income and costs. Due to personal financial issues, I was (and still am) simply unable to pay the server bill – as a result, our web host suspended our account. I was unaware they would suspend it today, and I should have sought your help sooner. I re-directed the domain, and we ran a server fundraiser to bring the forums back online. We raised $350 in less than four hours. Well done guys. I’m truly grateful and humbled. I’m amazed and impressed by the speed in which we were able to bring the community back online, and am thankful for the generous donations. I can also say that I’m not surprised – I know WF means a lot to many of you, as well as myself, and I knew we'd find a way back online. I thought it'd take a few days though, at least! Thank you all so much. You guys rock! Now, I only bring this up to address any concerns because I’d be wondering it myself, but if you’re thinking “you’re unable to pay the hosting bill, how are you running a contest with $500 in prizes?!", then the truth is that when the contest was launched, neither myself nor the website was in the current financial situation. Fortunately, contest contestants, I budgeted the contest prizes into an amount of money I knew I was coming into in two weeks from now – just enough to cover the contest. So no worries there! I'm sorry this happened. It's a little embarrassing but there was nothing more I could do. Thank you all for helping.
