It finally happened. lol

Does anyone remember GreatestJournal? Well it's finally down. I was on it yesterday and it was working fine so it must of happened within the last 24 hours.

What I keep on getting is:

403 Denied
GJ is currently down - Please go to LiveJournal

Old users: you can backup all entries and comment with ljarchive

As of January 6, 2009, after a year of issues, GreatestJournal is finally dead. Oh well.

Check this out http://greatestjournal.com/


wow...glad I didn't make my blogging home there...
You and me both.
It was still up? Damn. I thought we'd been through this...
I do...or rather DID go there now and then for icons at rpg_icons. I was still a member of that comm and they had a wide selection of icons to snag from there. Guess I'll have to go to lj and ij for icon hunting only now.
Was it this comm you went to on GJ? Because if it is, it looks like they made the comm here.
Didn't see that here. hm THANKS! :-D
I was waiting for this day.

System NEVER wanted to admit there was a problem on the site.

I was so glad when I left support a year ago. I got tired of him missing in action for months and years at a time since 2003.
Can't say I blame you. System didn't seem to care about his users. Ok granted it was free, still that is no excuse. This site(to an extent) is also free but [Unknown LJ tag] does everything(and usually succeeds) he can to keep this site at top notch.
sorry I meant [info]squeaky* lol
Only surprised it didn't happen sooner.
Tell me about it. You couldn't even post comments or make new entries anymore.
Sucks that they aimed people back at Lj.
I found that kinda odd. They usually re-direct people here. Doesn't matter now.
I was wondering when that would happen too. It's been down for a year and a half now.
Well it's been kinda working(if you wanna call all image hosting non-existant, can't comment or make new entries working). As I told someone else, I went there to icon-hunt in rpg_icons there because a lot of the icons there had off-gj hosted icons.
I've been able to make new entries via Semagic. Need to check that now...
Between this and the LJ thing, I expect we'll be getting an influx of n00bs. *battens down the hatches*
Oh boy, what's up at lj now?
They laid off almost half the staff in the USA, so various people are predicting everything from no changes to the failure of the company and the death of the site.
AH! So that's what [info]squeaky was referring to in that last update he made in the announcements comm. Another victim of the economy crisis no doubt.
Sending users back to LJ to blog?

Glad I jumped ship when I did... <.<;
So am I. I jumped ship when gj's image hosting and icons were getting messed up.
*Shakes head* Sometimes I wonder what's going on with them.

*Points to her icon*
I thought you were being sarcastic when you posted it said "please go to livejournal." But it truly does. ::Shakes head:: That's just cheeky.
Nope. Just repeating what system put in there.
Do you know if the source code for the GJ testimonials feature was ever released as open source, or do you know anyone who would know?
I have no clue. -shrugs-
