SD-1 Status

sd1_status

[simone10]
As many are aware SD-1 shut down unexpectedly on Sunday, June 10, 2007. The site was hacked. If you know the culprits, good for you. If you don't know them, you don't need/ want to. Unfortunately because of this SD-1 will be shut down permanently. We realize many of you have considered SD-1 a home for many years. We have also. The most important part of a home though is feeling safe, which is a feeling we no longer have. Please know that we very much regret having to close down this site but have no wish to open ourselves up to future liability.

If you had fan fiction, fan art, and/or comments saved on sd-1, or if there are posts/threads that are important to you, please email: admins.sd1@gmail.com . Please make sure you send the email FROM THE EMAIL ACCOUNT THAT IS ON FILE at SD-1. Your identity will be verified and your request will be approved based on a case by case basis. ALL EMAIL REQUESTS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 07/01/07!


Best regards and good luck.

The SD-1 Administration

ETA: THERE HAS BEEN A LOCATOR THREAD POSTED AT THE TEMP BOARD TO POST LINKS AND FIND PEOPLE HERE: Locator Thread

Re: SD-1

Because of recent developments any plans we had in the beginning of continuing aspects of SD-1 have been dropped.

Goodbye *sobs*

With SD-1 gone, it's our last link to Alias gone :( , I can't believe it's gone, I've spent the last four years on SD-1 making new friends, posting my stories and having fun in the different sections of the boards. It's going to be hard to get use to this idea, I used to come on SD-1 every day even I didn't post every time. I will have to e-mail you so I can take all my fics, because I have no back up of most of the stories.

Thank you for your hard work and keeping SD-1 alive a few more months.

R.I.P.

Many thoughts jumbled together in one quick post:

Sadness. SD-1 will be sorely missed. Whatever happened in the end, I knew it as an unfailingly welcoming, kind, friendly, fun place, populated by kind, fun people.

Thanks. For a long and wonderful run.

Puzzlement. Frankly, I have absolutely no idea of what happened (until 10 minutes ago I thought you were having tech/'net troubles) and I apologize if I'm out of line, but PLEASE do reconsider opening SD-1 at least temporarily, at least as an archive, at least the creative threads, at least... right, i'll stop now.

Incredulity. ...really???

(This is 'sleeper', by the way...)

Good bye?

Re: fanfiction

We understand that this is painful for many people ourselves included. We have stated our reasons for why the board will not be coming back. That decision will not be changing. Please try to understand. :)

Will subscribers get a refund?

It depends on whether your subscription was valid at the time the board went down. Meaning your initial paid subscription not including the additional six months that we added when the site went down back in February. Once we can get back into the database and check your subscription if you are still interested in a refund and are entitled we will be more than happy to give you a one.:)

how sad

OMG! How sad! I feel so bad that SD-1 is closed and that all of this is over, especially so soon after all the work you did to give us a nice, neat forum...I'm so sorry for you guys, administrators and whoever else helped.

I will miss sd-1 terribly, and I can only hope the authors of fanfictions will find a way to finish their stories somewhere else and let us know. thanks for the locator thread.

I'm sorry to hear that the site had been hacked.

I haven't really been posting a lot since the end of Alias nonetheless the site has been an important part of my daily web journey for years. I was looking forward for it to (hopefully) turn into a major Big Shots site. :)

I'm sorry to see it go but I can fully understand your reasoning. All the best.

Others have said it... but it can never be too much. Thanks for everything, it was really a home :)
It's sad and it will be missed a lot. It's good to have this chance to get some of the things and contacts.
Hugs
