I was hacked the other day and in the process of fixing the problem and making sure nothing dodgy was happening I had to change multiple passwords. Which then led to none of the fic databases being able to connect because I totally forgot to go in and change them there...

Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] aadler for getting in touch and letting me know they were down.

They should be fixed now and back up and running - if anyone can't access anything please do let me know asap so I can fix 'em!

Apologies for the influx of spam reviews that have hit the I Need a Parrot site lately. I'm working on deleting them all and banning the offenders.

Unfortunately with a site such as this we are never going to be completely immune to this kind of thing and we can only beat them together. If you have received a spam review on any of your stories - or if you've noticed them on someone else's story while you've been reading - please let me know either by using the 'report a violation of rules' option on the site or by emailing directly to admin@moments-lost.org with a link to the offending review and/or user.

In addition, I am going through the member list and deleting the obvious spam bots and it would help immeasurably if genuine members could edit their profiles with some kind of indication that they are actual people and not spam bots.

Thank you all for your patience!

Shona (aka Mara)

Last entry deleted - found the fic in the midst of the ten gazillion chapters of YAHF in the INAP submissions. Sorry all!

Also want to apologise to those of you subscribed to the INAP RSS feed, I may have just been able to approve all the fics that have been building up for a few months and as such I think 50 odd chapters just went through.

Sorry!

eta also? Just made it a 'featured story' on the site, even though there are a couple of grammar issues. It still rocks. Her by Seth Keegan, he rates it NC-17, I'd rate it somewhere between 15 and 18. It's Xander/Dawn. And it's awesome.

I failed miserably on writing anything for [livejournal.com profile] thebigbangjob, sorry guys! Still love the story concept and will work on it, but I dunno when it'll appear.

But... I did sign up for round two of [livejournal.com profile] jossverse_bb, this time as a writer. There's a lower word count demand there and, so long as the primary focus is Jossverse, crossovers are good. My immediate thought is to go with Lindsey/Faith with a couple of possible crossover characters but I'm open to all and any suggestions!

I'm in the library again, and about to leave because there's a damn percussion class going on. Seriously, in the library?!! I have my headphones on, my rock mix, last track was Enter Sandman, this one's Back In Black , volume cranked till it hurts, and still I can barely hear it.

Got no problem with a percussion class, sounds like fun, but there's a community centre at the end of the block and a town hall just down the street. Either of them has to be better than a damn library doesn't it?!!!

Oh, and thank goodness for Ben Edlund. Three eps into season six and finally an episode I didn't walk away from.

Hey... have I just gone deaf or have they actually stopped the class?!

(tiny tip, when listening to rock music, don't try to play tennis on Wii Sports at the same time - it'll mess with your stroke and make you lose your pro status. Or at least it will if you're me. Hee!)

Oh! Almost forgot - well, actually I did forget, this is an edited addition... - I'm having trouble with the admin panel at I Need A Parrot. There are something like 52 chapters to be validated and added to the archive, but when I try to get into them the library system blocks them with the message 'North Ayrshire Libraries has classified this page as containing pornography or violence'. Sounds like a good story, but I can't see it until I get my internet connection sorted at home. It'll be done as soon as I physically can. Sorry for the hold up!

I have to hold my hands up and say that for the past little while I haven't taken as active a role in the running of the site as I should have. I had a bit of a wake-up call this weekend with the plagiarism scandal.

So from now on I am going to be a lot more hands on. The site has been switched back onto moderated submissions which means there will be a delay between posting a new story there and it appearing on the archive. The delay is the time it takes me and/or other admins to approve the content.

Previously we had [livejournal.com profile] othercat, [livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs and [livejournal.com profile] nemo_gravis as admins. I am really hoping these guys will come back on board again.

If you are interested in helping out as well, please let me know.

after posting this, I realised that it's been a long time since I posted the link to the site. It's always there on my sidebar and in my profile, but for those of you seeing this on your friends' page: I Need a Parrot - a Xander Harris fanfiction site

So last night, while I was still in shell-shock from the Being Human finale I got an email notification of [livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs's message to me.

Ozmandayus aka Shawn aka Shawn30 has been caught plagiarising again.

I am absolutely spitting mad about this. I gave him a second chance when I probably shouldn't have and he's done it again.

[livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs has the whole story on her journal here.

Please note she has my absolute backing in this, I'd like to thank her for doing this for me when I wasn't able to get to a computer (I'd also like to thank [livejournal.com profile] nwhepcat for passing on the messages from Twitter from me).

Plagiarism is not welcome on any of my sites.

(I know, I'm posting a lot today - sorry!)

...moments lost... - the main page of my website is now fully up - although two of the links are not quite active yet, they should be tonight.

...pointless nostalgic... (aka Fandom's Bitch) is my own personal archive. This is hosted on the ever-wonderful [livejournal.com profile] wenchpixie's domain rather than the ML server.

I have also created new syndicated LJ feeds for most of the archive sites

[livejournal.com profile] fandomsbitch - the feed for Pointless Nostalgic
[livejournal.com profile] handonheart_bx - the feed for Hand On Heart (Buffy/Xander)
[livejournal.com profile] keytotheheart - the feed for Key To The Heart (Dawn/Xander)
[livejournal.com profile] effects_feed - the feed for Effects of a Troubled Heart (Faith/Xander)
[livejournal.com profile] sineya_updates - the feed for Daughters of Sineya (Slayer-centric site)
[livejournal.com profile] saltandburn_rss - the feed for the Salt & Burn fic archive.

and the all important one - [livejournal.com profile] ineedaparrotrss - the new feed for INaP

There are still three one more to add so rather than spam you, I'll edit this post during the day once they're done!

(yes, I'm aware that the links up on the INAP one are slightly odd, it's cause I hadn't made a change in the admin pages. It's fixed now and all the links from now on should be the correct ones. Sorry!)

Thank you all for your absolute patience and understanding over the past little while whilst I've been transferring files, setting up servers, clearing things up and generally flailing at my FTP client refusing to connect to the interwebs.

But, after far longer than I had really hoped, the sites are back!!!

I Need a Parrot - the general Xander Harris site, which accepts fic of all genres, ratings, pairings and types (with the sole exception of RPF/RPS)

Hand on Heart - the Buffy/Xander and Buffy&Xander site.

Key to the Heart - the Dawn/Xander and Dawn&Xander site.

Effects of a Troubled Heart - the Faith/Xander and Faith&Xander site.

Daughters of Sineya - the Slayer-centric site.


I'm working on tidying things up a little, but they are up and running and raring to go!!

I Need a Parrot is coming back very soon, I'm just tidying up some things and it'll be ready. In the past, we had four admins to validate stories and ensure the site was running okay and no one was abusing the system.

So here's where I ask for some help. Existing admins? Are you still willing and able to carry on with the task?

Would any one else be willing to be added to admin duty?

You would be required to read all submissions to the site, no matter the category, so that may include pairings you don't particularly like or agree with, genres that cover everything from crack humour, to explicit sex, to extreme violence. Basically anything that someone somewhere has written is accepted on the site (except RPF and RPS). If you feel you could do this, then please comment here - I'll screen comments for the moment - or email me at mara_sho @ livejournal.com
