Morena Baccarin & Lucy Lawless Sites – DNS propagation slow

I’m trying to my self-hosted sites to a new host (the old one started having issues with stats as in showing zero used bandwidth – I know from WordPress and Coppermine stats that’s not true – and also various page links being broken in WHM/cPanel). I moved http://www.morena-baccarin.net first and updated name servers on Monday morning on Namecheap. I just checked and it’s still not resolving ;/ Usually it’s taken only like 30-90 minutes, over-night at the longest.  This did happen once before, but I can’t remember which domain and whether I had to had Namecheap and/or my host do something *head desk*

So I got a thing this afternoon that I got to go to, then I’ll see if I can’t figure what’s taking so long…

Also, the same thing seems to be happening with http://www.lucylawlesscentral.com

Gave Up Game Of Thrones Fan

I have given up Game Of Thrones Fan http://www.gameofthronesfan.org and put it up for adoption. I love the series as much as ever, and I can’t wait for season 2. BUT, I find myself avoiding spoilers and wanting to go totally fresh and not knowing anything in advance into the new season (so much so that I decided to not even read the other books after reading the first one in the series).

This makes updating the site impossible, so I’m gave it up.

In other news, this problem with crystalfires.net, dreams.crystalfires.net and morenab.com has been cropping up intermitedly ever since the first time and is back today too 🙁 It seems to be happening on weekends.

Reading Failure

In the past two weeks, I’ve gotten about a dozen e-mails/wp comments/ twitter messages from people thinking that the site or the twitter account is run and maintained by the celebrity themselves :< These sort of messages come in every once in a while, it’s been fleeding these lately.

Why do so many people fail at reading??!! On most of my fansites I have something like “this is an unofficial fansite for [Insert Celebrity Name]” tagged on the header and also “This is a completely unofficial fansite – the owner is in no contact with neither [Insert Celebrity Name], their management or family in any way what-so-ever.” spelled out in the footer or the sidebar. But judging by the e-mails I get, a number of people read it mean exactly the opposite and send me e-mails and questions thinking they’ll get to speak with the celebrity her/himself *head desk*

Feels like I should start saying “official” instead because the way it’s going, it’s like they’re automatically interpret it to mean the opposite and that no, I really don’t have any contact with [Insert Celebrity Name] :/

Same goes for fansite twitters. Don’t people read the site name or account name and the description at all, or do they see only the letters forming the name of  [Insert Celebrity Name], and never ever even accidentally see anythingat all that is screaming at them from the page that it’s not the [Insert Celebrity Name]’s own offical site or official twitter account???????!!!! Like the words unofficial and fansite and I’m not [Insert Celebrity Name]???????

I’m tired of explaining the same thing over and over and over, but I think it’s rude not to reply legimate comments and questions (by which I mean those that are not clearly spam) so if I don’t, I feel bad.
