Potential Move to AWS

Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry
I'm reading through the AWS Acceptable Use Policy. I don't think anything there precludes hosting InsaneJournal there. I feel that our existing Terms of Service falls in line with this. I'd love to have an open discussion about this, so please comment with concerns. Please keep all conversations civil.

No Illegal, Harmful, or Offensive Use or Content

Prohibited activities or content include:

Any activities that are illegal, that violate the rights of others, or that may be harmful to others, our operations or reputation, including disseminating, promoting or facilitating child pornography, offering or disseminating fraudulent goods, services, schemes, or promotions, make-money-fast schemes, ponzi and pyramid schemes, phishing, or pharming.

  • I'm going with a 'be bold' recommendation...

    I don't know anyone there, if I did, I'd help, but AO3 has a gaggle of lawyers that do pro bono work for AO3... maybe you can ask around if someone there would give you some non-binding legal advice about what some of the RP folk are asking... worse case is that they say 'no'...

    As long as you've investing time in looking around...

    But I've supported servers and it's hell when something goes down (and you've done a great job keeping things running!), so you have to do what's best for the site in general.
    • I like this idea, and maybe ask a few sites if they don't mind sharing any advice or recommendations? The worst that can happen is no answer.
