Attention: MU*s Using Geocities

In case any MU*s out there are still using this service for their website (I recall years ago several that were) and are otherwise unaware, thought I'd pass this along.....

Quote:
Important notice: GeoCities is closing.

Dear Yahoo! GeoCities customer,

We're writing to let you know that Yahoo! GeoCities, our free web site building service and community, 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.

What You Need to Do

If you'd like to move your web site, or save the images and other files you've posted online, you need to act now by choosing one of the following options:

• Move your site to Yahoo! Web Hosting.
We know your files are important to you, and we want to make moving to Web Hosting as easy and affordable as we can. For a limited time, you can move your files automatically, take advantage of terrific features like a personalized domain name and email, even redirect your GeoCities web address to your new site — all for only $4.99 a month for a full year.

For more information and complete terms, please see our special offer now.

• Download your files to your own computer.
With your pages and images saved offline, you can re-create your site with any hosting provider.

To quickly download your published files, visit your GeoCities web site, right-click on each page, and choose Save Page As... from the menu that appears. Choose a location on your computer to save your files, then click OK or Save. Learn more about downloading your files.

Don't Wait

Please be aware that after October 26, your GeoCities files will be deleted from our servers, and will not be recoverable. If you'd like to save your files, you must download them now or move to Yahoo! Web Hosting. If you need assistance, please visit the help center.

We want to thank you for being a GeoCities customer, and hope you continue to enjoy our other Yahoo! services.

Best regards,

The Yahoo! GeoCities team

Bumping it in the chance that it might attract the attention of anyone who will be affected.

Re: Attention: MU*s Using Geocities

On another forum I posted this there was a site that used Geocities and hadn't been checked by its owner for some time so there are apparently sites out there which will be affected and don't know.

Therefore, bumping it again for the sake of those potentially affected but as yet unaware....

*bumped again*

Less than four weeks remaining until they close down Geocities. As another reminder, even if your game doesn't use Geocities for its webpage, you may have related sites with information about your theme that do use it. Might be a good idea to check out those sites and see if they do and, if so, make copies of any information you may want to reference in the future.
