Hello! as many of you have noticed, the site has been down for a couple of days. This is mainly due to me accidently breaking the website. A couple of days ago, I got notified by Patreon of featuring images of characters they deem problematic. In response, I immediately removed those pictures on their site. Additionally, I had to go thru my website and remove pictures of certain characters. The issue is, Patreon is not very clear on what/who is okay and not okay to draw because I know other artists whose Patreon feature these characters regularly and have zero issues. So in order to be extra safe, I removed characters I ‘THINK’ would be problematic even if they did not tell me to. I rather be safe than sorry. Characters include artwork featuring Boruto Uzumaki and Sarada Uchiha. I will however continue to post these characters on [FANBOX] and [SUBSCRIBESTAR] if anyone is interested in supporting me over there.
Going back to my website, while mass removing so many images, I must have screwed something up and that broke the website. It became super slow and inoperable. I had to restore the website to a previous state in December and reupload everything I’ve posted since December including fanfics. At least 15 hours was spent working on troubleshooting all of the site issues. When one problem was solved, another popped up. It was a stressful experience because I know nothing about websites so I was very fortunate to have my admin friend helping me thru this the past couple of days. This website wouldn’t exist without him. Even after fixing things, a part of me is paranoid that things will go wrong again. As I make this website public again, I worry that it will go back to super slow and I would need to set the site into maintenance mode again.
In the future, I will be avoiding posting certain characters or images that I ‘think’ Patreon will not like. I won’t provide an explanation, even if the image might appear completely fine to another person. As a result of me removing so many images, it has affected a lot of fanfictions, leaving many chapter gaps in long running series which is somethin I really don’t want. After much thought and discussion with my website guy, I decided to clear the fanfictions of affected series and wipe the slate clean, allowing for new series to be written. The affected series include Bleach, Fairy Tail, Naruto, My Hero Academia, One Punch Man and One Piece. I’m sure there are other solutions, but I decided this was the easiest, least stressful and safest route for me to go. I’m sorry for those who enjoyed the current fanfic series and I hope you enjoy the new stories to come.
Those of you who are huge fans of SailorIo’s work can still enjoy the fanfic chapters he has wrote over the years on his Patreon: [LINK]. Go support him since he’s been having some unexpected financial issues.
