Settled finally? Some thank yous are in order!

I like this girl a lot but I just hope you don’t have to see her EVER AGAIN!

The previous week has been one helluva trip for Metanorn because yeah we did migrate to a new domain but there were a lot of chinks to be settled. Not to mention the fact that I had to travel due to an unforeseen emergency. However, in my absence and very less net time, I have to laud my team, who stuck by the site and kept the spirits up via our official twitter and Chatbox (which will return soon), a big hand to Overcooled, Hato-kun, Hoshi and Masu! I also specifically need to thank our Knight plus Tech Guru, Will, who worked day and night to not only transfer our huge database and content to the new place but relevant reconfiguration required. Let me just say it’s no walk in the park and involved loads of hair-pulling and swearing (I swear I just had a new haircut to even out my length XD).

In making all of this possible, I got in touch with Divine, Kabitzin and Jubbz to research on hosting providers so thanks goes out to them as well, who responded with suggestions. More so to Kabitzin who answered all my minute queries in every detail possible, as I ended up using his suggestion after all.

Special mention of the DDD Cast, whose webmaster I’ve literally kidnapped (Sorry guys! xD). The guys have been ever welcoming since our buddiness originated from Sekijitsu and even resulted in us appearing as the first female guests on their fourteenth podcast.

Last but not the least, BIGGEST THANK YOU goes out to all our regular readers like Xiao-chan, Joojoobees, LuluChan, Ichigopocky, anaaga, Namika, Tofu-kun, Dan/Dan-go, Berrish, Kushi, baka_girl, Tainy, Lizzy, Hellomotto, Junko, bakuhasu, foshizzel, Amutofan, Mimiko, oplover, Jo, Captain and many more who stuck by the site even when no updates were happening. Those continuous refreshes meant a lot. All new and old readers like amado, BlackLagoon, foomafoo, CyberPixie, SaphirePyro, TJ, vucubcaquix, Ammy, Eri, Iso, Rin, nagi, Sebz, Kami-sama, Mint, Vivi, Bass, Starry, gwern, BK201, AkatsukiYuki, Ultimate Tempura from the East/North, Sabine, Shinji, Jamie, Mikuru, lostty, Yukiko, hanabih, lazysamurai, Nejibana, Gantoris, Chimney, Wildfire, Roger, Zenbaka and many more (with single digit comment stats); I know our lurkers are even more than the names mentioned; we hope to see more of you in the coming days!

For an update, Will and I are already working on a new design to stabilize the overload we face sometimes due to our current theme. It’s not about bandwidth but amount of processing our site requires. We’ll try our best that with new season, you would see a new look of Metanorn.

I’ll end with the note that our only purpose to be online and having an identity is to present everything entertaining about the fandom (Anime, manga, music, fangirling, bishies, moe and everything in between!). So have fun and enjoy your stay!

    • Kyokai says:

      Thank you, Xiao-chan! We love your enthusiasm! xD

      Also for the wishes, there was a death in my family but it’s a reality that life and death goes hand in hand. All of us coming together from different countries has been a good experience altogether.

    Congrats! I’m glad everything’s settled down, although I am getting a script error every time I go to the site… I hope it works out! 😀

    • Kyokai says:

      Thanks! And I think you are using internet explorer? For some reason that script error only happens on IE. Try FF or Chrome?

  12. Amutofan123 says:

    YES! METANORN IS BACK TO NORMAL!!!! I’ve been checking every day. 😮 My name was in the post! You’re welcome! For… me being… a regular reader. 😀 Eh, that sentence sounded weird. I’m looking forward to more posts! I also hope that everything is okay with your family, Kyokai. Of course, I don’t know what happened, but I still hope everything is okay.

      • BlackLagoon187 says:

        Hahaha I realized that after it got through and I thought that was the reason I couldn’t get on metanorn the past 2 days because I decapitated them 0__0 so lets redo it xD

        (“)(“)D (“)(“)D (“)(“) (___)O

        I hope it’s alligned now… It’s alligned on my end… before posting anyways…

        • BlackLagoon187 says:

          sigh apparently the sizing and spacing is different on the before and after posts, so awesome bunnies will always be decapitated until I figure out how to compensate the differences :-[

        • Dan-go says:

          Awesome Decapitated Bunnies, sounds like the makings of an intense anime series

  15. Joojoobees says:

    Good luck with everythig. I’ll be looking forward to seeing regular updates soon.

  16. Marin says:

    Wow, it’s good to see you guys back up and running again. It was so unsettling to see the RSS feed coming up blank for a week. Glad things seem to be heading in the right direction, and keep up the good work! 🙂

  17. Tofu says:

  18. Gunny says:

    first comment ever… oh well, i missed you guys a lot :'( do not migrate anymore D:: i really like your reviews and all, everytnhig around here is pure awesomeness (specially Shiki and my beloved P&S(epi6 *-*)). Oh, and I don’t comment to much ‘cuz my english suckz x_x (as you may had saw) and yah, I’m a foreigner (Brazilian \o/)

    • Overcooled says:

      First comment, yayyyy~ (And your English does NOT suck! It is perfectly fine!)

      Aww, I’m glad you missed us…I think I was going crazy not being able to do anything on the site for so long.

      • Gunny says:

        oh thank you *-* but sometimes I don’t know if is right or not to use some words D: (maybe is about time for me to get some english classes, I need to expand my vocabulary ;S). So keep up with the good work *-* I’ll be looking foward to whatever you guys have to show d: (waiting desesperatly for your P&S reviews) õ/

  19. Captain says:

    -points- I’M ON THAT LIST. I was kinda worried throughout the whole migration thing, especially during that time when I got the “THIS ACCOUNT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED” message. I couldn’t sleep that night. ;o;

    Anyway! Congratulations on the move~ Everything’s finally back to normal~ 上出来だよ〜!

    • Tofu says:

      Oh Captain… When I saw that “Account has been suspended” message I full freaked out and thought I was IP Banned from Metanorn!! Dx

  20. Starry says:
