Bloody hell. Farfarawaysite (aka Merlinskeep) is down, it looks like for good this time. There go all my Merlin references.

Anyone know of another site that has the promo photos for Merlin?

ETA: THEY'RE BACK! (They've been back for a while, but I kept forgetting to update this post) It looks like they were able to bring back everything that was there before. Yeesh, I hope they can figure out how to separate the concept of the newer shows whose promos might be controversial from the older shows' promos that have been around for years.

I am hoping against hope that whatever this is gets resolved. I've seen them do it before, but.... yeah. I'm just. Yeah. *holds you*

I am absolutely certain it had to do with one of the newer shows they were collecting promos for, that some of the newest photos were under blacklist until a particular date and FFA didn't get the memo for some reason.

What really fries my fritters is that the WHOLE fucking site goes down, not JUST the new photos that whichever studio has an issue with. They had promos from a LOT of shows, OLD ones like Merlin in with which there were no issues, but we still get the shaft.

Sigh. I guess it's an argument for having a different site for EVERY SINGLE SHOW, so that there's no blowback onto other fandoms is something blows up in one of them. But what a PIA to maintain and promote!

:( Stuff like that makes me so sad.

It makes what I do damn near impossible, because I need good references to make good art. And it makes it actually impossible for manip artists because they need the super high quality stuff to make anything worth looking at. :((((

Yeah I'm out. That's where I went to get most of my pictures for my graphics. I have no idea what I'm going to do now. I was just using it yesterday morning.

eafgh <=== that was my cat. I left it in so he could say hi.

I don't know what else to do. I used that site for all my manips and most of my graphics. Also for the AU manips where I needed other people's bodies.

Fucking hell, Gwyn, it's bad enough for me, but absolutely fatal for you. I really really hope you can work something out with the FFA people so that there can be an archive of the photos SOMEWHERE. It's just a death knell for this kind of fandom that relies on the archived promos.

And Hi Jack! *cuddles*

Sadness. Such a great resource, but I did always wonder how they managed to stay alive with potential copyright issues, and I'm sure the move to Tumblr and bigger fandoms didn't help. :(((
