    Default SG1-Heliopolis.com website

    When I went to Heliopolis it said that the site is shutting down on feb 9th. But it also said something about having a new home. Anyone have an idea what's going on?

    Does anyone have contact info for the administrator? I think it was Lyssa?

    I think Heliopolis is gone. Every so often I try checking it and it still will not come up. Last time I tried, it routed me to a domain name search. It's sad that all those great stories are gone. ????

    This is the biggest argument I know for downloading the fics you like to your own machine.

    I did a domain search on Heliopolis and found the email for the person that owns it / is in charge of it. I emailed them about 2 weeks ago and there has been no answer. According to the search the domain expires June 2016. If they reply I'll let ya'll know.

    I got in contact with Lyssa the administrator of Heliopolis. She is working to get the site back up but it may take some time. So keep your fingers crossed.

    That's good news. I hope she gets it working soon. Thanks for contacting her.

    It's good to hear that this archive might be available again one day. The archivist might also want to look at whether to move over to AO3. I know a number of archives that have done that, after the initial move it's cheaper and a lot less work for the archivist. Usually the collections are set up so that only registered users of AO3 can view.

    And what's the point of that?

    Control traffic, probably, so that the site doesn't get overwhelmed.

    And, of course, to increase membership.

    From what I recall in one of the fandoms it was down to a permissions things. They hadn't been able to get in touch with all of the authors despite a fandom wide publicity drive. So they thought it best to move to AO3 and allow only registered users to see the stories. They didn't have a choice about moving, just where to move to.
