I've been a member of AnimePaper.Net (and this site, too) since 2006, and recently they posted this message:
After over decade running AP we've made the tough decision to suspend normal operation of the site for the near future. Sadly there aren't enough hours in the day and it was time to make a decision on what to spend our efforts on. It's a pivotal time for our other project right now and we do not have the focus, manpower or system resources to run everything we have got right now.
We'd like to thank the community for their support over the past decade. It's been a pleasure.
Pro users may still log in below. We are no longer accepting new registrations.
Unfortunately, the site has no forums and doesn't even provide a way to contact the site's staff (unless I'm missing it somehow). What I'm wondering is, what the heck does the above actually mean? Is the whole site shutting down soon? Can people no longer post new work? Will it remain there indefinitely as an archive?
Sorry, I know it's weird to post on here to ask about another site. There's no particular reason anyone here should know any more than me, but I'm hoping someone does anyway. Any help on finding out what's going on over there would be appreciated.
