I didn't know where to put this, but since this is the subforum for fansites, I felt it would be most helpful here.

GeoCities is closing for good in a few months.  I suggest moving your servers if you use it.

I was planning on working on my site again so now I know I need to find a new server. Luckily you pointed out that the site is closing for good. It looks like I have two months to find another site to host my work.  :?

Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.

Hey RJF, I am glad you asked that question. So far I have had no problem in moving my work from my old cite to a new site. Unfortunately, I am using a freeweb account for now, which is just plain horrible. I am hopefully going to find a new host by the end of the year.  :)

Once I am done formatting and putting the old content up, I think I will start writing for more episode pages since I have a lot of old episodes saved on my computer. For the ones I don't have, I guess I will just use the MegaVideo uploads on the site. The only thing though that is discouraging me from continuing is the content on the site itself. I am trying to find a way to make my site different from the rest since mine looks like a ripoff of the all the other fansites.  :?

If you know any HTML for site formatting and such, try Bravenet or Sitesled.  I've been using hosts like those a lot in a different online community, and they haven't failed me yet.
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

Hint: AwardSpace (it's what I use).

For some reason, Awardspace looks kinda dangerous... And I thought the "co.cc" domain isn't free?

I heard that somewhere in the Pit forum that after a year, you have to pay for this.

But there is a free trial.

There's just something about it that I can't lay my hands on... Other than that, I would be happy to move off of Webs.com, except I know nothing about HTML or CSS.

The two I suggested are free if anyone's looking for free webspace.

Awardspace.com is totally free, and co.cc domains are also totally free (for noncommercial purposes, like Legends websites), so you're all good.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. :D

I am not familiar with HTML but know a lot about sitesled. I am also looking into AwardSpace too. Anything that is not freewebs is good enough for me.
