The Worf Dax Fanfic Archive is closing...

It's with regret that I announce that the Worf Dax Fanfic Archive is closing when Geocities shuts down the site on Oct. 26, 2009, nearly 11 years after it was first opened. I'd been hoping to find time to save it, but unfortunately RL is more interesting than I can handle right now. I tried a couple of options, but I'm forced to face reality: I don't have the time to move the site to another location prior to Geocities' shut down.

The URL for the site is: http://geocities.com/wdfa

If you have stories on the site that you would like to save, please do so before Oct. 26, 2009.

I do not have a copy of the website on my computer. It may be possible to retrieve some files from the Wayback Machine if necessary, but after the shut down I will not be able to provide any copies of the stories to anyone as I simply don't have them. Some stories may also be archived on the individual author sites (if they still exist) or at Trekiverse. If there is something you really want saved, please go to the site and save it to your computer just in case the other options are not available.

Thank you to all of those who contributed stories and those of you who read and sent feedback. It was much appreciated.

Have you contacted the OTW about their Geocities project? They have a thing where they are archiving all the old fic archives on Geocities.

Thank you for all the hard work archiving the stories for so long. It would be great if the OTW would be able to save it for posterity. (Info here.)

Hi, OTW GeoCities Rescue contact here -- do you have a friend that you would trust to upload your stories to the Archive of Our Own? If so, we can work something out to save the stories and document the site....

If you contact me here, we can get started. :-)

The site got saved by "Reocities." I haven't checked to see if it's all there but it looks like it might be. Same URL, just change the "g" to an "r" in the address line.

Hmmm for some reason only half the post can be seen. I tried reloading but still same.
