Dingo,
I've not been a very active member of Yerf since the initial crash of the server. Nor have I been involved in this LJ group. But seeing how the site has been down for over a year, I'd appreciate it if you'd please remove my gallery. I'm taking my art down from places I can no longer keep track of and I'm afraid Yerf is one of them.

I'm sorry to make this post publicly, but I know there are others who feel the same as I do and this may be an easy way to keep track of those people. I hear you have a lot of e-mail, so I'd rather not add to it.

Gallery name: Purin

Thank you, Dingo. Good luck with fixing the server! It's been fun.

NOTE: To all the smartasses yelling about this being a pointless post due to the site being down, you can save your breath. We KNOW it's down. What, you think it's NEWS?

Dingo,

I have written you over THREE WEEKS AGO with my letter of resignation and my request to pull mine and my boyfriends galleries. I have requested numerous times that you please..take 5 minutes and read my email and answer me, even with so much as an OK. You know what you told me? You told me to "deal", and yet I STILL haven't gotten a reply. Real professional.

Since you seem to ignore your emails but you seem to read these, I would like to say here, please remove my gallery ASAP. I no longer with to be a part of this site for the reasons dragoncreator has mentioned, and if you check your email, those reasons as well.

Gallery name: "thornwolf", name L. N. Dornsife

And so it begins.

I've been watching Yerf since it was the SCFA. I held out for a year while the server was repaired. But I think this delay is going to finally break the community's back.

I personally can't blame anyone. If the person who is supposed to be taking care of these things cannot, either hand it to someone else and move on, so that the community can grow and the site can actually get UP, since it does seem that Dingo has little interest in taking care of the issues involved...

Or just say bye, fun while it lasted, knowing the community is not going to stand for it.

Re: heh

I think more since the pages are still obviously on the server (what server!?) and if yerf ever came back, noone would be interested in going, and as artists like to keep track of their work, and sometimes NOT showcase their older, almost embarrassing artwork, they have a right to have those files deleted off of the server/backups, and not replaced, whenif hell freezes over yerf comes back up.

Wow, your needless sarcasm is really not appriciated.

I'd to keep this polite. So if you do NOT have a Yerf gallery you obviously have nothing to add to this topic. So don't.

I knew the foundation would crack sooner or later. That’s a complete disappointment because I was really looking forward in trying myself into Yerf.

Out of this mess, I must ask, what was wrong with the original Yerf? Or the Yerf before the second crash? In this I mean to have reference to the saying “don’t fix it if it ain’t broke.”

But for those who are going, where will I be able to find your latest Yerf-appropriate art? Will you seek to find or establish a new Yerf? Is Yerf truly dead?

The Death of a dream?

I've always veiwed yerf as an attainable goal for me, although i have been rejected twice so far for various technicalities, (working on them) i always held yerf high in reguard as a gallery i wanted to be a part of. but sadly, the yerf i wanted to be a part of no-longer exists as it once did, i saw it as a community of artists that benifitted (at times financially from the exposure of being in yerf, but since the first crash the true colors of the community come forth, yerf is not as kind a place as i thought it was. i understand that dingo is only one person, but even so, i am the owner of my own site as well, its my baby, i care about it, but that doesnt stop me from having other people help me maintain it out of the goodness of thier hearts. Understandably, compared to yerf its just a teeny tiny thing. Dingo, if you need help, ask for it, beleive it or not we wont kill your baby, we want it up as much as you do. Your lack of attention to the community is what is the main cause of this newest movement by artists to pull their galleries. I still have hope for yerf, i still want to be a member, mostly because yerf has no REAL known equal, however that feeling is slowly and sadly dying... dont let it die, dingo.

Re: The Death of a dream?

I know exactly how you feel, except for maintaining a large site with users, but that may well change as I’m working on such a site for personal educational enrichment.

Please remove all of my artwork from Yerf.

My name on Yerf is/was everything with the word tiger in the title.

I hate to say it, But I want out, too. I don't care if you remove it yourself or not, Whenever it finally comes up again, I'd be happy to remove my art individually myself. And then I will politely request you pull my empty gallery. I had hopes that yerf would be able to recover from this, but apparantly...

considering the symptoms of hemlock to kill slowly and painfully over the course of a minimum of six hours, all the while destroying the eyesight, that is probably the best analogy ever for whats going on.

How's this for sad?

I *don't* want my gallery removed simply because I'm hoping that, once they're back up, I'd be able to salvage a few key files to keep or post elsewhere and then ask for said gallery to be removed.

I could also ask if anyone has any backups of the files themselves, though I don't remember their names...and, well, that'd be silly to ask even if I did.

I would like my gallery pulled as well please. (it's under kilojara). There's nothing there that I don't have posted else where, and those places seem to be far more reliable than Yerf in terms of server downtime and adminstration.

I hate to say it, but I'm extremely disappointed in how Yerf has been handled the recent years. I know a lof of offers for help were there, and there even were people who wanted to take over, but Dingo rather let the entire thing starve rather than trying to let folks help him.

Now it's too late, anyway. Yerf has become pretty much obsolete long ago. If Dingo had taken better care of it or handed it over to someone who actually HAS the time to work on the server, it still could be the shiny vintage-style art gallery today, designed for people who know what they're looking for. However, now it's more like grandpa twitching in his wheelchair while looking for the defibrilator.

I don't really feel the need to have my art up there anymore. But think asking for removal is pretty much pointless. If someone can't even get a server up and running, how much time do you think can they invest in editting the database?

I'll get back to that if Yerf ever comes back. And I seriously doubt this will happen.
