News
A New Era of MJFiction!


As many noticed, the site was down for several days in mid-June and it was just down for almost a week in July. As those who emailed us during June realized - neither myself or Skywriter were aware that was going to happen. After getting in touch with the former owner, we realized MJFiction had two options:


A) We could purchase it and keep it alive

B) It would be dead within a month and members would receive as much warning as we got when it went offline.


None.


That it came back at all was an odd burst of fortune that we unintentionally caused, and which upset the former owner. This is a problem several sites have come face to face with in the past year, and it's a fact of nature. People move on and interests and priorities change and connection to the MJ fan community fades.


Since you are reading this, I trust it is clear which path we chose. We are sorry that we didn't share more beforehand, or during the downtime, but we had to wait until the handover was complete. There were many additional complications over the past week, which were an immense headache and reaffirmed the reason why we couldn't wait any longer to transfer the site. We try our best to be as transparent as possible, as we know what it is like to be on the other side and really value your activity on here.


We hope to see you guys visiting, posting, and reviewing on here for years to come. There will likely be a few bumps and glitches as we update the appearance and fix some bugs, so please bear with us. If we are ever short with you, know it is because we already have busy lives, so this isn't a transition of convenience. However, we've made efforts to set up this partnership in a way that will make sure the continuance of the site is not dependent on the whims of a single person's interest. What it was, is, and will be, is a labor of love. For both us, and we hope, for each person who reads this. MJFiction is here to honor Michael and serve as a place for fans to join together and share and honor each others' creativity.

Always,

Skye and Redone

Thank you guys so much for doing this. There would surly have been a hole in me if this site was to ever just disappear. Your time and hard work is well appreciated. <333

The fact that you two were so bombarded only shows how much the site means to everyone.  Hopefully they will now take the time to say thank you.  I can only speak for myself so I will.  Thanks for assuring we still have a site.  Being an admin is a thankless Job, believe me I know.  I've been in your shoes too.  It has to be a job done out of love because no one would put up with it otherwise.   People have no clue all that goes on behind the scenes and are selfish and feel entitled.  It's time consuming and expensive.  Maybe in the future there can be a way for members to contribute to defray the cost.  To me even a few bucks is not much to ask for so that others can continue to enjoy the site in the future.  Thanks again.

Never knew how dependant I've become to the website I agree completely with tinker above me. Thanks for all the hard work you've guys have done. Glad to see it's back for good.

I'm so glad that the site is back up, I checked like literally everyday to see if it was, its so many great MJ stories on here that I would have been devastated if I couldn't continue to read them, and I'm thankful that y'all stuck with this site and now its back!! #TimeToRead 😁‘😘“–

So glad to see you back up and running!  As Tink mentioned running a forum is a thankless job!  No one really knows what goes on behind closed doors so to speak.  They come on and see the forum and post.  it is costly, as well as time consuming, updates are needed and sometimes that causes more havoc than good!  I am grateful for the path you ladies have chosen!  It is all for  LOVE and in keeping Michaels legacy alive.   

Now go to the spa and have a drink!  It's well deserved!

Thank you ladies so much! I'm glad the site is back up and in capable hands. I too, believe it is an issue when site owners do NOT even value the time and dedication of their visitors/members.

Yes, we know that one may lose interest, but this is why you always have more than one person as an owner and running a site. I too, was disheartened when the former owner appeared for two days with promises of being involved and "back," only to disregard the site and its members again. Sigh.

With all of that being said, I again, would like to thank and commend you ladies for your hard work and dedication to not on Michael, but your fellow fans and community members as well!

P.S. As I mentioned before, I would have no problem helping you ladies pay to maintain this site, as it brings me immense joy in this thing I call, "LIFE." :)

Xoxo,

Christine

I'm so glad the site is back! I worried the worst could happened. Redone and Skye, you two are doing an amazing job! I know I speak for everyone--we appreciate it immensely!

Thank you for restoring my profile and many others' profiles, stories and etc. You two are rockstars! You guys had us worried there lol and its a shame that the other admin had backed out but sometimes the committed are the very few. Thanks for not letting this site fall to the wayside and fighting for all of us so hard the way you guys did. Once again, you guys are awesome!

Thank you so much ladies, for making sure the website is up and running. You guys are amazing. I'm so happy that the site is back up and running. I never realize how much I use the website until it wasnt there anymore.
