The successor to MotK
« on: February 19, 2020, 02:03:05 AM »
http://www.shrinemaiden.com/

Maidens of the Kaleidoscope v3 is live! A partnership with Tom (who's most well known for the LunarCast Replay Database), to give MotK a future. Tom has even managed to acquire MotK's original domain, as used in 2004-2007.

The site's usable, though the various forums within it still need to be organized, including porting useful information from MotK v2, creating new stickies, and so on. A nearly 11-year-old site going offline is going to be difficult. At least we have time to organize a transition to a new forum.

Y'all BOUGHT the domain?  :o
I remember from the timeline that it would have cost a lot of money to do so.

Quote from: Seventh Holy Scripture
April 2007: Katchura's webhosting unexpectedly expires, and shrinemaiden.com is taken offline without warning. His webhost, Globat, demands the exorbitant price of $99 for another year of hosting before they will relinquish the website data or domain name. Rather than cave to such extortion, Seventh Holy Scripture registers the current domain - shrinemaiden.org - and sets up yet another new forum with the assistance of TheStupidOne, while Katchura recuses himself from running the website.

I'm actually really surprised, this connects everything back together.
I'm highly optimistic.

Well, since this was the original domain, the fact that one of our resident archivists was able to regain control of it is music to my ears.

The Rules/ToS links on the register page need to be fixed. Is it okay to post in this thread?

Hopefully someone can soon link it on the main page, next to or instead of the huge "regarding the future of MotK" link.

nice

edit: hm, for some reason the only avatar options I have on the new site are either PC-98 or no avatar. pretty sure this is some anti-tengu bias at play, for sure.

Things sure have been moving quickly. I do notice that the site appears have to been set up before the announcement thread here, which makes me wonder at what point it was decided to start making arrangements.

It's a naked power grab. This whole chain of events was staged right from the beginning.

This is totally a takeover from your new benevolent dictator, Karisa Mirisame!
...I'm no good at this. Not my style.

If anyone's wondering, the v3 project originated from a conversation I had with helvetica (unfortunately, that was the last conversation we ever had...), where she was supportive of a clean start with the old site becoming read-only. I considered it a failed effort at the time, since Tom and I were never able to contact helvetica again after we had something to show, for permission to go ahead. But we happened to have the start of v3 intact after hearing the news, to coordinate with the remaining admins on this site, and fix up for public release.

It would make sense for a tyrant to establish a benign facade. Makes it easier to rule with an iron fist when nobody's looking. Don't fall for it, everyone!
