Hi there—it's been a while!

As our other news posts indicate, UR has had a spambot problem for some time, and maintaining the archive despite the technical difficulties has been a challenge. We definitely don't want all the amazing works and memories here to be lost, though!

So we got in touch with the Open Doors team, and together we will import the contents of UR to the Archive of Our Own starting in July. We will publish more details about the move later on, including more details about how to claim your works there if you already have an account, and how to remove your work from the import if you don't want it moved. We'll also email everyone with works on UR with this information.

Thank you all for being part of UR throughout the years, and we look forward to seeing you on AO3!

Uh, so. *sheepish grin* Our spambot woes are far from over, it seems :(

I'm really, really sorry for this outage, guys. My friend and tech wiz kid DNA finally managed to get the site back up today, and he's trying his damnedest to keep the evil spambots at bay, but we're totally depending on him.

However, I'm happy to report that server-wise, we're totally on the up-and-up—paid up in full until 2014 at least! So don't worry: even if these pesky spambots manage to overrun us again, we'll be back! And your data won't be lost! :D

(You should always back up your fics, though! Incidentally, if you want an invite to the brilliant Archive of Our Own to mirror your stuff there, which I highly recommend, email me and I'll hook you up!)

Random quote

    He shook his head. They were supposed to be Gryffindors, and one ended up hiding, running away; the other one was left alone, and believed that his other old friend was a murderer, while the latter made his best friends change Secret Keepers to save his own skin. How bold, how brave, how heroic they'd all been.

    Peter instead liked to believe he was up to those standards. He was loyal... just not the kind of loyal anyone would've thought of. He was brave, had he or had he not accepted to be Secret Keeper and be fearless enough to defy them and sell them off to another higher power, with lots of probabilities he could've died in the attempt? Was he brave, having gone into hiding for thirteen years disguised as a rat, into the dark and unknown, after having confronted a close friend in public? Oh yes.
