Why I moved the fansite to NTLWorld

Just a few secs ago, I moved the Duckyboos fansite to a new location which can be found here. It was initially a mirror of the original at I made soon after I discovered that I had some ad-free webspace on my own ISP, Virgin Media [formerly known as NTL]. It was only 55MB, 5MB less than the original host, but I decided to take it on anyway to see if it made the site work for someone who couldn't view the original.

Fateback was horrible - it disallowed the uploading of MP3 files or any files more than 200KB [which was why I decided to host related images onto my Livejournal account], and it had this ad at the top of each page that interfered with my CSS. Not even Firefox's Adblock could block it. So in the end, I created a redirection page and wiped everything else off, while keeping the new host open.

I feel really bad... like, I'm rushing things without telling anyone, and it comes to a point where I feel that I don't know what I'm doing, but I do. I dunno...the Duckyboos project is my pride and joy, but I just feel like a crappy admin.

One thing's for sure though, the fansite won't be coming back to Fateback at dawn, Transylvanian Standard Time.

Heads up, we're moving!

Yep, just like the way Duckula transports his castle to another location by simply entering his coffin, Duckyboos has moved to a new piece of webspace. This is because I'm no longer satisfied with the old host, and that certain visitors were unable to view the original site. I've also updated the FAQ with a few new questions, and I've been adding some old unfinished artworks I've made within the past year to the gallery.

We greatly apologise for any inconveniences caused by the move.
