Is anyone else having trouble voting for SHD-WK in the Webbed Comics link? I haven't been able to get in for a couple of days now.

Copying from the other thread: They're still [linked] there on my site, but the icon as well as their page hasn't been working for 2 days now. I give it another day, if it still won't load I'll probably just drop them.

So, yeah. It's not just you ;)

I removed the webbedcomics icon. They've been down for what, 5 days now? Thanks to all of you who voted there in the past (SHD-WK always ranked in the top 4, sometimes even at #1); if they come back to life, you can still vote there (find the link via the Ends page), but I don't think I'll put their button on the frontpage again any time soon.

(I'm crossposting this reply to the other thread, so if you have the feeling you have read this before, that's why :))

From what i saw at webbedcomics.com, the site was DDos'ed and the owner decided to give up the project. That note is gone now, though.
Another site of (appearently) the owner has an ongoing fundraising campaign to pay for a new server (Doompuppet).

I hope this does not count as advertising...

Well, the people who voted at webbedcomics regularly will have noticed that the site was rather badly run anyway, often down, porn links not removed after a week, etc ... so they've done all the anti-advertising themselves already, I suppose *shrug*.

So if they're gone for good, well, one less thing for me to worry about I guess ...
