We are currently experiencing issues with the server again. We are steadfastly working to correct the situation. We will try and keep you updated as things progress.

UPDATE: It is hardware failure having corrupted the database, we’re trying to bring things back up without losing anything. Gifts to the Hatbox or the BC Hardware fund to help us out can be sent via Paypal to Joyce at QnEZ.com. Thanks.
SHORT UPDATE: BC has a gigantic database, we’ve been able to read the failed drive but the info is not in the form of a database anymore. It got scrambled, to put it in simple terms. What we’ve been doing for the last many hours is reassembling the database. We had hoped to be done by this evening but it may take a bit longer.
MORNING UPDATE: Just so everyone knows, we are making progress. 🙂
MONDAY UPDATE: We’ve made considerable progress in restoring the story database and now need to get the other parts of the data in order. Then final testings and probably some adjustments. No timeline at the moment, but soon is something that can be hoped for and looked forward to. Thanks to everyone who has contributed, that will help enormously in making plans to see this sort of thing does not happen again.
TUESDAY UPDATE: We’ve got the site up and running with most stories recovered (not publicly available, sorry), but lots of stuff still needs to be done. The internal links, kudos, read counts, private messages and a number of other things still need to be recovered and we seem to be missing a few stories so we are still working on this. Hope to have another update later today. — Joyce
TUESDAY EVENING: We’ve got the site 98% recovered, we just have to get some details done so that all the stories are accessible. Tomorrow sometime is beginning to look more than just possible.
WEDNESDAY EVENING: More progress. Fixing the little niggling problems. We do hope to have the site up tomorrow. 🙂
THURSDAY MORNING: Here is a tease to keep you going.
BigCloset Secret TestSite
Here’s an Amazon Shopping Link for those that asked for that: TG Fiction at Amazon US
Transgender Ficiton on Amazon UK
But remember, we won’t get the commission on shopping until April. I wish I could put up the Hatbox Amazon buttons here but they won’t work without the BigCloset site to return to, it would end up flagging the account.
So the best way to donate to help us out is to use PayPal at the moment. My account there is Joyce @ Qnez.com.
Thanks and Hugs, Joyce
