Fandom needs our help!
Our Fearless Leader, happier_bunny asked me to pimp this around. Sorry for the spammage about to happen!
I made a post yesterday over at Get It Here on behalf of one of the archivists of Across The Pond. ATP needs our help. Here's the post:
Just an FYI.
Okay fellow Queer As Folk fans ... UK Qaf, US Qaf, or both!!! ALL PAIRING PREFERENCES!!!!
If you want to keep the ATP Archive up and running - please read this information.
Some of you may know I am an archivist at the Across The Pond QAF Fiction Archive. It's been many years of hard work, but not a little pairing drama...lol (just teasing) - but through it all, there has always been one place that served as an archive for all pairing choices and all versions of the show "Queer As Folk".
Now we all have our own pairing favs, and in some cases, we may also have our pairing specific archives. But all of us know that there is value in diversity, and having a wider selection can yield many rewards.
And now, in the spirit of hope, I'm asking for your help to keep the archive alive. Please read the information below, and know that ANYTHING you can give is greatly appreciated.
Since our last donation drive in 2006, our failsafe backer(s) have quietly slipped out of the fandom, and the Archive has literally been surviving on air for almost a year thanks solely to the generosity of our host provider. But they can no longer let things stand as they are. This has come as news to me, and I'm sure to many of you. So your help is needed, and needed now - if possible. In that spirit - please share this request with your other QAF communities on LiveJournal, Yahoogroups, etc.
Remember - No action = no result. And in this case, that would mean the end of ATP.
And the update regarding monetary goals:
The goal for their fundraiser this year is $500
The money will be used for hosting cost, maintenance for the site, and any overages for bandwidth.
