Duuuude, someone has to do something about this. This is bad :-S all the information that has been compiled throughout the years will be lost. How about creating a wix website? Would it be a good idea?

Anyway, the forum will still be here which keeps me calm.
Did you know that I'll be working for ludella in a future project? Those are some good news at least... :|

This brings back the cozy feelings of the old days when robot wives weren't cheap and effective. :|

For anyone attempting to scrape the wiki, just a warning: I've had two wget instances running for 24 hours now. Not sure how far they are from completion, but it will take a very long time.

If you want to start a manip and art hosting website, please do.

With all due respect, I think this is fast becoming a "baby / bath water" scenario. As both a professional writer and a professional musician in my offline life, I'm pretty well hip to all things "copyright," and I truly don't see any red flags yet. For starters, the so-called "legislation" basically never "got out of Committee," ie, it never even went to the floor for debate, much less causing any sort of vote to be enacted. The notion is stillborn, in other words.

Myself, when the news first broke here, I just made like :roll: and said "Oh crap, it's another form of 'Hush Rush,' or 'NAPSTER Mk2!" :sick: How the hell would they ENFORCE it, provided they could even get such claptrap actually on the books in the first place? If the notion were even remotely possible, we wouldn't have all these "wonderful" things like Facebook, kiddie porn, GOOGLE, and "cyber-bullying" strewn all over the Interweb like we do now, would we? Hell, it would only take a sharp lawyer-type roughly two seconds to proclaim "Grandfather-clause" - and kill the entire notion of "enforcement" deader than Jimmy Hoffa! :lol:


All of that aside, there's one other thing to consider. "Copyright" only gets nasty when filthy lucre is involved. Last time I checked, neither this place, nor the Wiki has EVER shaken its' patrons down for admission. Nor do I recall ever being financially compensated for my many humble contributions to the Archives on both sites. I can't speak for everybody, but 100% of my raw material for manips was and still is FREELY available on multiple websites. What's more, I also have many clear memories of several attempts to download certain other items being calmly balked by a simple "Copyright Protected" popup. And this was in the days well before Photobucket got greedy and decided to monetize their "services."

Ergo, not only is this new "legislation" totally ridiculous, it's also totally redundant - worthwhile copyright laws are already in place {and have been for quite some time} and are being quietly enforced, if my above popup experience is any indication. Which in turn makes me absolutely CRINGE at the thought of so much wonderful content housed here and on the Wiki simply up and vanishing into the ether, all because a couple of long-eared jackasses on Capitol Hill {including Bill, of course} have nothing better to do with their time than to try and legislate some "morality" into the discussion - with the whole damned mess funded by the taxpayers' dime, natch. :angry: :evil: :angry:

Now then, it's time for the ol' Devils' Advocate scthick. :twisted:

My good R-Man, I'm afraid you'll have to do one hell of a lot more than simply shuttering the Wiki for good, if ya want to really "CYA" from every angle. After you go into Witness Protection {or maybe even before}, you'll have to do something drastic, and I do mean DRASTIC {think DEFCON 1} about this pesky nuisance called the Internet Brokeback - er, ah, WAYback Machine. On more than one occasion I've traced a perfectly straight line from here all the way back to the original Gynoid Gallery launch during the summer of '97 {when I was known as 'Drumbo'}, using the IWM. If some hypothetical "Enforcer / Hitman" ever did come gunning for you here, only to find you absent, they'd still be able to nail you with a metric ton of "incriminating evidence,'' thanks to the IWM's "Party-line And Electronic Bread-crumb Trail to the Past."

Oh yeah - whilst nuking the IWM, ya might as well put your own "Gratuitous" site under the guillotine for good measure, 'cos it's also chock-full of IWM potential Dangers, AND has a couple of portals tied into FC and the Wiki to boot. :-o :hypnotized: :P Git 'er done, right? :lol: Yes, I'm 100% kidding about "Gratuitous," but there are more than few kernels of truth underpinning the whole of my diatribe here.

.And on a final note, regardless of whatever the future might bring, I want to publicly thank you 1,000,000,000,000 more times over your stalwart tenure as Fearless Leader, lo these many years at the helm. Said it before, say it again; you ROCK to da MAX, Old Boy!!

It's been a real slice grooving with you so far, Good Sir. If nothing else, I'll still positively adore the many fine friendships - including yours - I've cultivated here. By way of testimony FC and the Wik are shining beacons to everything that is right about this silly old fetish of ours, simple as that.

Which is a damned fine note to conclude on - Class dismissed!!! :mrgreen:

{And Keep the Baby, Faith!! :P :twisted: }

Before I forget - would it be possible to put FC and the Wik on some sort of VPN platform, and bypass the matter entirely by going dark? Methinks it might be worth looking into........ :)

Assemble the ladies? I didn't know that they were broken......

Robotman, you can do whatever you want, but I think this is unnecessary and paranoid. The internet here in the states is open and free, and it's gonna stay that way. Who is going to come after you for hosting images people upload on a site?

Do whatever you want, but know that all you're actually doing is needlessly destroying a key pillar of our community. Someone else will make a new wiki I suppose, but you're doing this all for nothing.

I've just checked the FW site and there was no "will be shutting down..." With some hope, I quickly checked this thread to find out the great news: the FW will stay alive! From hell to heaven in just few days! Thanks Robotman for your decision, and good luck to Spaz! And I hope the transfer won't stop you from contributing your great works, and maybe even some SASS/CyberFem/etc. comic in the future.

Thank you Spaz and thank you Robotman for not closing down the site just yet.

I still remember when I discovered fembotwiki, it was such a relief (but very exciting as well obviously, lol) to realize that I wasn't alone.
I don't log on often, but I want to make it clear that I appreciate the work that has gone into maintaining the sites and the community. I thank you all for a decade of collaboration, let's hope there will be another one!

Comming late to the party here. Robotman THANK YOU for all you have done for our community. Spaz THANK YOU for picking up the torch and running with it. I'm about as tech-savvy as a rock so I'm no help, all I can do is hopefully get back to uploading some pictures.
Thanks again,
Freejack

Sorry for my silence...

I just want to assure you that, for the most part, FembotWiki will be remaining the same. I will, however, be a tad more inclusive regarding certain aspects of ASFR...more to be announced later.

Most importantly, I am planning on keeping the wiki up-to-date on a more regular basis, and am currently forming a team of qualified people to not only help manage the day-to-day operations of the wiki, but to also bring new features as well, such as the long wanted Multi-Upload function, and hopefully even revive the page view counter function....unless it still causes slowdowns.

Please stay tuned for more information!

I'm working on the behind the scenes migration of the site, so if I may request that nobody adds anything to the Wiki until the transfer is complete that would prevent anything from being lost.
