Sinful Desire Supernatural Archive - Morgan Dawn Livejournal:The Here And Now
The Here And Now
Sinful Desire Supernatural Archive
 Sinful Desire, the largest Supernatural fan archive is gone. No idea why it went down, although the message seems to indicate it was due to lack of funds. If anyone is still in contact with the admin owner, I'd be happy to help.

But wow, that's a lot of fanfic that has been lost.

We have been in contact with the webhost for Sinful Desire.  Both billing and support and they have said they cannot do anything until the site owner contacts them. This includes my offer of payment for another year which they will not accept until the owner gives permission.  We have asked the webhost to preserve the data for another month, but they have not confirmed they are willing and able to do this.  As of 12/31/2014 11am EST the site is down with no expected return date.
The site did receive an payment extension back in 2012, but that expired in 2013.
Both I and  meus_venator reached out to the site owner in hopes we can get the site back up temporarily until a more permanent solution is worked out.  If we hear from her, we will let you know and post updates to this post and in meus's SPN post. Until then, if you are an author and have not backed up your story, the spnstoryfinders members may be able to assist.

Good news! There was a last minute reprieve. From the site:

12/28/12- Site Update - I just wanted to let everyone know that this site and domain have been renewed for another year, so rest assured that this site isn't going anywhere for at least another 12 months! Yay! A couple of very kind people made donations to go towards paying my bill, which was very much appreciated (and, of course, always is). Also! Thanks to one donation, the Tag Board is back online and you can use it to chat again!

The site's splash page is here: http://www.sinful-desire.org/

that was for 2012 - if the site owner does not respond it will go down again, a fan e-mailed the web host today and got them to put it up until 2014 runs out.
