[mod] !!PLEASE READ!!

I have a good and bad news today.


The bad news is that I will probably stop updating this community within the next few days...

But the good news is that I am currently putting together a website for Alice Nine! I've been doing translations here for the past 5 years and I feel that it is time for me to move on to hopefully bigger and better things. There are still various things in planning for the site, some of which I have to request permissions to the management for, but for one thing I think the blog translations will be moved over there.

I know that a lot of you may find it convenient to read the translations on your LiveJournal's friend list, but I also realize that it would be a bit of a hassle to update both places at the same time. So as much as it pains me, I think I will have to close this community... But don't worry, the archives will not be deleted, and I will try to set up a syndicated blog on LJ so you can still receive the updates on your friends lists!

So, that's about it for the announcement. You can find the website at:

www.dear-numbers.net


There's nothing to see over there as of yet, but I'm hoping it will be open and fully functional within a couple of days. I just wanted to give you guys a heads-up a bit ahead of time. I'll make another post here when the switch-over is official. :D/

And if you have any suggestions for the website, features you'd like to have or questions you want an answer to, feel free to drop them in the comments below! Sadly I'm pretty sure I will not be uploading scans of magazines and the like because of copyright issues, so sorry in advance!



Last but not the least, thank you so much for the support and encouragement until now, I really do appreciate it! I wanted to say that I honestly do enjoy doing these translations, and I'm also glad to do this for a band who has the power to reach out and touch the hearts of so many people through their words and their music. I hope to continue creating memories with all of you again in 2010 (and beyond)!


Sorry for the tl;dr
:P

I'm not sure I can say that it sucks. I mean, it's not like you won't be doing at all anymore... And the website will have more A9 things to offer as well, so if anything it's an upgrade. Good luck with it, though and... See you there?

That's awesome. I'm really excited for the move. I was shocked at first, I thought something bad had happened but this is wonderful news.

I'll be looking forward to the new site.

Thank you always for your hard work!

I didn't mean to scare anyone. I wasn't going to use a lj cut but my post ended up longer than I'd imagine. XD;

That's actually great news, I'm really happy to see your translating is going somewhere! I hope everything works out, and I will continue to read them when you move.
Good luck, and Happy New Year!

Not so much of a bad news, really, even if it is easier to catch updates using the Friends page for most LJ-ers. But personally, I've never checked my Friends page, so this switch-over doesn't affect me as much.

I'll be sure to bookmark the new site! Good luck!

:D yay! I'm glad you have a website now ^^ its very convenient to get updates on LJ but I think having a website for their trans is cool <3 plus sometimes my phone would get over loaded with lj posts that I'd have to shut it down... TT-TT
Thank you btw for all the translations :)

Sorry for the spam XD;;;

The syndicated blog I mentionned above is like a RSS feed. It'll basically allow people to still see the posts on their friends lists without me having anything to do.

Whaha , I'm so happy with this:P I was just thinking I should get the blog translations off my friends list, but I was afraid missing,Couse Nao's blogs are often not that intrested,(and it spams my friends page) but I love to read shou's and tora's blogs So the site is really welcome for me !
So one suggestion, if you make the site, seperate the blogs over farious pages !
And thank you for the good work

Well if you only want to read Shou and Tora's blogs, you can use the tags. I'll see what I can do.

It's be strange to not see this on LJ anymore, but I think a website is a big upgrade and I'm happy about this! :) Good for you.

A syndicated/RSS feed thing would be very useful still as I know I will check my LJ page more then a website, so really its pretty much still the same thing, in a sense.

Thank you for all your hard work translating, and I hope everything works out and the website is up and running with little/no problems soon. ♥

I know I never comment or say thank-you but I do appreciate your translations. Love the site name!

I'll miss this LJ though.

I wonder if there is some code for websites out there that make it possible to allow people to comment on the posts once the site is up.

I own an a9 website (more like a homepage linked to a forum - it's more of a fan community) so if it's possible, I'd love to link you! You give the fandom so much!

Congratulations for this and thank you again. Happy 2010!

will it have rss feed? The thing I liked about them being on LJ is that I didn't actually have to visit to check for updates, I could just check the feed to see if anything new was posted. Either way, I can't wait ^^

The syndicated LJ blog I mentionned is a RSS feed

Ah~ you scared me for a second o:

Even though I haven't followed your translations for that long, I'm greatly thankful for your work. I love alice nine for their music, but even more when they share so much of themselves, letting everyone love them even more~

I hope everything works out with the new site, it's already bookmarked! :D I check so many different pages and stuff everyday anyway, so it doesn't bother me that you move. ^^
