Persona Paper Downtime - Transfer

So I just wanted to let everyone know that Persona Paper will be going down for a little bit at some point over the next couple of days. I am in the process of packaging everything up for MegL to take things over. Right now, everything is split between two AWS accounts. I will be consolidating that into a single account.

AWS does not offer an easy way to transition accounts between people, so once I get everything into a single account I will just remove my CC and hand over the credentials for MegL to take control of. At that point, everything will be transitioned finally.

If anyone has any questions or finds issues after it comes back up, let me know. I'll go ahead and post again once the AWS transition is complete.

You will need an account to comment - feel free to register or login.

Thanks for the update, Will! Best of luck to Meg in taking over the site. I hope things will go smoothly and that we'll be able to find a way to make the site sustainable once more :)

Thanks. I am going to be looking for a strategy to take this forward.

Happy that it will live and I know MegL will do a good job of it.

You are going to do a great job here Meg, please do let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

MegL wrote on July 28, 2016, 12:36 PM

Thank you for the offer.

Thank you bestwriter .

May be you could send emails to all members informing them about this as not many know about this. I have created a post in myLot about this transfer. I have called you the owner hoping that is the right word I have used.

MegL wrote on July 29, 2016, 1:59 PM

Not yet but should be soon. I now manage the domain name but Will has some work to do to bundle up the hosting. There won't be a lot of change immediately, it needs to move steadily.

So far I have no issues. It's Friday, July 29, 2016, 1:12 PM Central Time. Congratulations are in order for MegL, our new Administrator. A new beginning for Cheers.

Good luck Meg! Anything I can do to help just let me know.

I am happy to know about the recent developments here on PP. I read about this good news from another site. I had not removed my old posts, and will it be credited again? Good luck to megL. Hoping for your success here.

Thanks for the information!

Good luck MegL !

So, since she is taking over the site, will it still be a paying site? Just curious. I recently went back to my original home online, MyLot. I also deleted all my content here and started posting there. As well as all my old Bubblews content. If Persona Paper is going forward with a new owner, I hope it will prosper. I like MegL and think she can do a great job here. I never disliked Persona Paper. I just thought it was going by the way side. I will come back here once it is back in full swing.

Thanks very much allen0187

It has not been transferred across yet. elitecodex has a big job to do and we have to coordinate times so the changeover happens with as little downtime as possible. The site's IP address will change, so the world's servers won't know where to find it until they all get updated!

MegL wrote on July 31, 2016, 2:31 AM

Thank you and thank you. :D

MegL wrote on July 31, 2016, 2:32 AM

Thank you AsADrivenleaf . Look forward to your posts

MegL wrote on July 31, 2016, 2:35 AM

Thank you acelawrites . The site will not be paying at the moment. Writing sites as a whole are having a hard time. This site will need to coast for a while as I take over, find my feet and work with everyone on here to find a way to help us as well as the site.

MegL wrote on July 31, 2016, 2:36 AM

Thanks inertia4 . The site will not be a paying site at the moment. It needs to be built up but some ideas have been bounced around for providing some kind of benefit to contributors.

inertia4 wrote on July 31, 2016, 6:34 AM

Okay, cool. I really still like Persona Paper. I hope some kind of incentive will be arranged.

inertia4 wrote on July 31, 2016, 6:35 AM

Oh, one more thing. If I do come back, can I post links to other articles that I have elsewhere? Maybe then I can get more into being here again. Like putting links of posts I have on MyLot through AdFly links. Just asking. If not that's okay also.

MegL wrote on July 31, 2016, 3:52 PM

That is one of the things that has been discussed on the facebook page for PP. It isn't finalised yet but it is being considered. You're welcome to join the FBGROUP. BARBRAD started it.

VinceSummers wrote on August 12, 2016, 7:14 PM

This is news to me. I won't deny it is good news -- at least for me, for us. For Meg? I don't know.

DanieGirl8587 wrote on August 13, 2016, 2:56 PM

Ahh yay! I am so happy that it will be continuing and hopefull will be a paying site again! I have deleted quite a bit of content on here, but I am glad to have stayed and still pop over and check on things. Never disliked the site at all, just felt it was a bit slow on earning and such. Good luck to MegL and keep updating! emoticon :smile:
