Hi everyone I got some disturbing news this morning and this news sucks big time!
Yahoo! GeoCities has decided to be discontinued. Sometime this year, GeoCities will shut down for good. That means all GeoCities websites will be lost.
And here is exactly is said when GeoCities members log into their webpage manager.
"Important Announcement After careful consideration, Yahoo! has decided to close GeoCities later this year.
You can continue enjoying your GeoCities service until then — we just wanted you to let you know about the closure as soon as possible. We'll share more details this summer. For now, please visit the help center for more information."
Which means all that hard work stuff we GeoCities webmasters and webmistresses have put is now going to be lost!

Unfortunately Stephanie that is exactly what it means. I know it sucks. I'm losing all my websites I worked so hard on. I have a Sailor Moon which is 8 years old and a Voltron which is also 8 years old and I'm losing them both. It really bugs me about that.
GeoCities is closing on October 26, 2009. On October 26, 2009, your GeoCities site will no longer appear on the Web, and you will no longer be able to access your GeoCities account and files.

Hehe, if people's fanfics get deleted without them saving them, anyone else would be sneaky and post it on fanfiction.net claiming it as there work, and they'd have no proof of them copying from them. I wouldn't do it. But there are others who might. So, whoever doesn't want that to happen to there stories better save them.
