Oh wow, this is just insane!

Looks like Desertmoon.org and Dreamhost have gotten into a lover’s spat and we got kicked out of the apartment. Lucky for us, we ran into some guy who wanted roommates (no, he the room wasn’t on Baker St, morons) and we’re moving in right now. Mostly everything settled into the new apartment, but CCS and some other screencaps are taking longer than expected. Regardless, we decided to have a house party before we finished, but those guys should be showing up later tonight. It’ll be swell, honest!

Enough of the babble. There were some issues with the old news script, so we went ahead and just installed a new one. Cutenews does nothing more than attract spam, and their comment moderation is crappy anyway. If I handled this right, everything should look nearly identical (well, the comments look a lot nicer anyway- not that anyone comments here ANYWAY), and I’ve duplicated all the posts. Sadly, the comments and users weren’t salvageable; don’t ask me how, but they won’t even show up in the old news posts. Well, s’alright!

In any case, enjoy the new server, and don’t hesitate to hand out some feedback! We want to know all of the issues you have with your visit here, and we’re definitely interested in how the speed compares from the previous server to this one! And remember, comment here if you find any broken links or if there’s any mismatched screencaps, anything like that.

OKAY, I’M DONE.

    hiya! just letting you know that a few lucky star galleries are still down — the OP, as well as episodes 22-24 don’t seem to load caps for me, and they look kinda funky.

    I haven’t seen any other problems aside from that o/ great work keeping the site up!

    How strange =O I’ll fix that right away, thanks for telling me!

    Well, it’s good to know that people are still visiting… I’ve been thinking of closing the site since no one seems to be using it OTL

    OH GODS PLEASE DON’T CLOSE IT ;; I would be very sad. I use it all the time. for serious. The Card Captor Sakura and Lucky Star galleries are made of WIN.

    When can we expect (if any) updates to the galleries, particularly the screencaps galleries?

    Good question. Reb and I have both lost interest in this so called project, and with our scanlations, schoolwork, and jobs, it’s hard to find time for a thing that we’re both kind of lukewarm about. Like I said before, reception to this site has never been impressive- I mean, I don’t want people jumping up and down going “OMG I <3 YOUR SITE" or any crap like that, but like I said, I honestly didn't think that people were even using it, so we just stopped updating. After all, there's no use spending an 1+ hours (well, I'm slow at it, so...) updating stuff that no one will use, right? I am trying to get Reb to complete stuff like Air Gear that's almost done, and she's still thinking about recapping the Black Cat episodes for the DVD quality. Aside from that though, we really just don't know what people would be in to right now, you know?

    The screencaps for the episode 20 CCS gallery are mis-linked. The thumbnails lead to other images.

    Oh wow, I have no idea why it did that, but I’m uploading the fixed version right now. Thanks for telling me!

    I don’t know if you already knew this, but I can’t find episode 15 “Distant Cat” of black cat on your site. It’s the episode where Sephiria goes after Train and Charden attacks her, ending with Train saving Charden.

    Also, I’m willing to donate some screenshots my sister and I have taken if you’re interested in contacting me.

    Lastly, thank you for such a wonderful site, the only screenshot site we’ve found that has all the screenshots we wanted from any anime we’ve watched.

    Hello!

    Just wanted to stop by and thank you for scanslating that Final Fantasy 7 doujinshi, “Prologue”! I’m assuming/hoping this is the right place, since this is the address that was included in the credits… if not, well, no harm done!

    But yeah. Thank you! I was having a rather bad day, but that silly and well translated thing (HURRAY FOR LOOSELY FLOWING TRANSLATIONS!!) totally cheered me up. Especially that part where Aeris groped Tifa, huhu. Uh, I mean… right. No way to regain my dignity after admitting that!

    (I would totally move into the house on Baker St., btw.)

    Hello,

    I’ve been using Desert Moon as a resource for a long time now. I hope you all continue updating this website. Also, I was interested in the zip file for the clean Alicematic CGs. Is there an estimated time of when that will be available? If so, I will be looking forward to it. Anyway, thank you for providing such a great resource site. I really appreciate it~

    Thanks for enjoying the site! Over the years I’ve considered taking it down, but so many people use it as a resource, it would just be unfair to them. Unfortunately I lost the CGs for Alicematic quite some time ago when my hard drive crashed (soon after the originals were posted, in fact) so I’m afraid I can’t help you for now… I will browse through the directory and verify that the CGs on the site are intact, and after that I’ll put up the actual links.

    Huh, that’s funny… I could have sworn I used to have a contact email down at the bottom of every page. I’ll have to put that in there. For now you can just contact me at melfra@desertmoon.org. Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience!
