Dancing Line & Fanmade Wiki:Announcement/Miraheze is Not Shutting Down and Preparing to Change Management


The leaders of Miraheze don't want to continue to operate Miraheze -- the hosting service of our Wiki. But a former core volunteer of Miraheze is willing to take over this project. He has had an effective communication with former leaders, and they have determined a rescue plan. Both sides are guaranteed to maintain the operation of all Wiki websites when the handover continues. So now it's for sure that Miraheze will not shut down for a period of time. See the article Miraheze is Not Shutting Down on Meta Wiki.

We are very glad to see that the situation has turned around. As a rare 100% free and pure hosting service provider, Miraheze has won our favor. Dancing Line & Fanmade Wiki will still continue to run on Miraheze.

This announcement will remain in effect until the handover of Miraheze is completely completed, and the schedule related to the handover event will be updated in real time.

We are very sorry to announce, that the hosting service of this wiki, Miraheze, has announced that they will stop the maintenance on Aug. 31st, 2023, and completely shut down before Oct. 1st. Miraheze is discussing with the community to find the possibility of continuing though, such as recruiting members. More detailed information can be found at here.

As the creator of the Dancing Line & Fanmade Wiki, I feel very fortunate to discover a non-profit team called Miraheze that provides wiki hosting services. I feel really sorry to hear about Miraheze's recent decision. I cherish my relationship with Miraheze, and sincerely hope that Miraheze can get out of their trouble, and find enough volunteers to keep running. If the relationship really ends, I will still keep this miraculous experience in my heart forever.

The Future of Our Site

Due to the condition, Dancing Line & Fanmade Wiki have to prepare for the backup and migration. This announcement will keep active and update new measures of administrate groups on time, until Miraheze resume their services or we finish the migration.
