Holy. CRAP. You guys. I am so glad that massive unpleasant experience is over and done with.

So, for those that are just now finding the site to be back online, welcome back to Selkie! I’m glad to see you again. 😀

Many readers managed to find my Selkie facebook page (www.facebook.com/selkiecomic) and my personal twitter (@strawberrycocoa) and may already know this, but for those of you who did not manage to find those resources, let me recap what happened over the past three weeks:

The website got shut down by my webhost on August 24th for over-consuming server resources. At that time, Selkie was hosted on a Shared Hosting plan, and the activity here was slowing down other websites hosted on that shared server. This caused a suspension of my account (without even 24 hrs notice, which I’m not very happy about to be honest).

After that, Hurricane Harvey hit the area where my webhost’s support staff operate from, which left me without a reply for most of a week. And even after support functionality got restored, once I started trying to get answers from them and get the website back up, it took the next two weeks of going back-and-forth to finally get a new VPS server set up (which should give the CPU resources needed to support the website).

So, it’s been a long and frustrating road, but Selkie is BACK! I’m ridiculously happy to finally have it back up and going for everyone.

During the downtime I continued drawing comics, which were posted to my Twitter, the Facebook page, and the public Discord Server for people to read while the website was down. For those of you who weren’t able to find those portals, you may go here to pick up from where the Account Suspension first struck.

Sorry it took me so long to get things fixed, but I am really really damn happy to be finally up and going with a proper website again. 😀

I still have some more backend stuff that needs to be patched up, so please catch up on the strips you may have missed during the downtime, and please come back on Friday for the continuation of the Eel-pocalypse.

Glad to see all of you again. 😀
