Shadyfiction is closing anytime after September 5, 2015 and no later than December 31, 2015. We gave it a try as a multifandom site, but couldn’t generate enough interest to justify the cost of roughly $400 a year for domains & hosting.
That being the case, I’m no longer approving forum accounts etc.., and haven’t for a couple of months now. I apologize that I didn’t put a notice up sooner.
Thanks for your support over the years. I’m sad to see the site go and wish there was an alternative. Bot activity forced me into several expensive upgrades and I simply can’t keep going when there’s less than one post a day in the forum.
For anyone that’s interested, Julie’s Story will be moving to Archive of Our Own, and if I ever get a minute, I will finish it. Or tell you how it ends…
