I think that MSE needs to seriously consider finding a new home if possible...or at least somehow starting to back up information on the site so that a new place can be found elsewhere. Due to events with the Sourceforge host as of late I feel that this would be wise. The site is down all the time and one day it might not come back again. It would be a shame for this internet community to suddenly lose its homebase and all its data. I think the least we can do is start an e-mail list so that we can stay in touch and possibly restart the website should something happen to it.

My e-mail is ckshields17 @

This is actually something that the staff discussed heavily after the outage in July. Unfortunately we haven't moved forward with our plans much to my credit. I think it is something that we need to go very quickly though. More to follow.

Check out my updated set hub.

In case you want my email as well, it is , but if I don't know you and you don't indicate in the subject that it is related to MSE, I will mark it as spam.

I suppose this would be better handled over private message to someone now that I think about it. The spambots are hungry for loose e-mails I bet. If there are any admin volunteers who'd be willing to recieve them that would be great.

I'd definitely be willing to do this. Don't want to foreclose our staff discussion, though - so please give us some time first A happy smile

As Photobucket wants me to pay 400$/year to link to my images, I'll relocate all renders.

We could change the site over to another place like MTG Salvation did, but I dunno if it's that easy.
