Megaupload

Guys, megaupload has been shut down. D:

Yes, there was a lot of pirated files up there, but worse, there was also a lot of fannish works up there.

I've said this a couple different places and at different times, but if anyone wants a fannish home to host their fanworks (podfic, vids, art, whatever) I'm happy to share my webspace. I host things for a number of people already. And would be happy to host for others too.

For anyone interested, you can email me at parakaproductions at gmail dot com or leave a comment here and I'll set you up.

The process that I use is that I'll set users up with their own subdomain name, plus an FTP account. That way users can have their own space to do with what they choose (you can create a whole website, or just host works there to hotlink to elsewhere) and users have complete control over their content (so they don't have to go through me whenever they want something uploaded or taken down).

There's also an inbuilt stats function automatically set up, so people can see hit counts, referring site and the like.

I'm seriously offering this to any fan, you don't need to know me to take me up on the offer. :)

ETA: Because some people have asked, there is some statistics tracking available if you want to host with me. Here's an example of what the stats page looks like.
People are also free to use the space to make an actual webpage if they like (rather than just hosting files there). My default is to set people up with an FTP account but if you want something with My SQL or something we can talk. :)

ETA2: I'm actually out of town this weekend. I will have internet access to answer questions and/or set up accounts, it just might take me a bit before I can answer.

ETA3: This offer is still open to anyone. If you'd like to take me up on it, can you please leave me an email address so I can forward the info to you. Also, please let me know if you'd like the website to have a different name than your journal name (otherwise I'll default to your journal name).

Hey there. I was wondering if I might be able to take you up on your kind offer. (Seriously - this is REALLY nice of you!)

The only podfic I currently have that's too big for mediafire is the audiobook of More Myself With You, but that was indeed hosted on megaupload, so I'd love to have an alternative location.

Please let me know if you need any info from me, and this can be done at your convenience - I'm in no hurry. People aren't clamoring to DL the audiobook of MMWY. :)

And thank you again, so much!!

If you'd rather email me than comment back, I'm at shiningartifact at gmail.

Oh, btw, I initially tried to email you directly but I got a bounceback - I decided it was safer to just comment. :)

Dah, I forgot an s in my email address above, thanks for letting me know, I'll fix it.

I've set you up with a username and the like, you should get an email from me with all the details.

Yup, I've got it now. And, tomorrow I shall test-drive some FTP clients, figure out wht works for me, and then get back to you for more advice, tutorials, and/or positive reinforcement. Thanks!

I'd like to help with configuring this new home (I have MySQL and PHP knowledge) but my free time is somewhat at a premium right now since I started a new job that requires me to work overnights. [I was forced to turn down work from Can-Con on their website for the same reason.]

I'll try to call you this coming week likely Tuesday to see what we can co-ordinate.

I've been worried about having a place that I can be reasonably sure won't disappear in the night! This is a very generous offer, and I'd love to take you up on it. Thank you so much!

my email is reintransitive at gmail

The offer is still available. :)

I've emailed you the info, but it might take a little while for everything to be activated, so maybe give it an hour before trying to log in.
