ThickBBW Forum Downtime

Dang. The ThickBBW Forum is down. 😦
Been that way for days.
Keep seeing database errors when I try to go there.
That’s been my favorite source of short traffic bursts for my site. I like the great content I find there, too, and it was a place to keep up with cool peeps.
Anyone know what’s up or how it’s doing?

Site Cleared. Site Cleaned: The Purge

Gave this post a scary title because this looks like a scary time for blackstreetbbw. BUT it’s actually a time of hope!
GoDaddy gave me the three day extension I was begging for, enabling me to rescue a ton of videos. But the 7TH was the last day.

All of the files have been purged from the server, so as of this moment (which happened at 9-something AM EST) the site is devoid of any functional files.

WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NOW?
Well, the first thing that will probably happen is the homepage will get a little better and images will crawl onto it so it doesn’t look dead. Might happen today or tomorrow.
But to begin the process of resuscitating the site, I’m going to start putting individual files up for sale. Basically, The Clip Store is coming back online first, and current members will have free access to everything in it. Also, you know how the preview section- and this blog- would have women that weren’t in the member’s area yet? Since I can’t do the site the way I want at the moment, I’m going to go into the future, dig up the most extreme women, and sell those clips individually.
The only problems with that is my most extreme ones of all you’ve already probably seen, and a lot of people liked a lot of the women that were less extreme for various reasons.

I want to give a shout-out to two people: Liberty, and Jamie. You guys know who you are. Liberty bought a number of vids from me back when the site was running, the whole custom request way that few people took advantage of over the years the clip store was running. Making vids specifically for him has made it so I have additional vids to put in the clip store now.
Jamie… that guy’s just been a long time fan and supporter of blackstreetbbw, and I feel mean that I haven’t replied to his messages in, like, forever, so I feel like that dude deserves a shoutout here for real.

DownTime Uptime

An update on blackstreetbbw’s downtime.

You know, the site downtime issue might not be as bad as I’d thought it would. I got a three day extension with my web host, which will give me three extra days to backup all my files.

I originally had most of my files backed up to a hard drive because I knew the importance of having backup, but then that drive became corrupted, and since most of my files had been moved there from older disks…

All my files made after that were backed up to newer drives that still work, and I’ve gotten a brand new drive to be my official nothing-but-blackstreetbbw backup drive. That should fix that for the future.
As of right now, all the videos I made before 2011 are safely backed up, as are all the ones from 2015 and most of 2014. In 2013, I don’t think I had uploaded many videos… OTL but 2012 and 2011 were big years and are in big danger, and they’re pretty much the only things that are. Also, so piecemeal backing-up of those years had been done, so even if I got the plug pulled right now, I’d have SOME videos from those years.

Thanks to the three day extension I got, blackstreetbbw will not go totally offline yet. The site’s PRACTICALLY offline, but it’s still running enough to tell people the news. If I can get this smooth enough there should be no more than three days downtime, and people should have prior notice.
