    Default I am BACK!

    As many of you probably are aware I’ve been gone for the last year almost.
    I am back now at least for a while and will try to come here more often. I’d like to thank the people who continued to Donate. Right now I am working on collecting a huge number of Manga updates now that the summer is here.
    The past few years I’ve been in school and this last year due to bills from loans and expenses I’ve been forced to work full time and that has been extremely hard on me consuming large amounts of time leading to me to neglect StopTazmo but with summer here I have more time on my hands.
    I’ve lost a huge amount of money this year keeping StopTazmo open even though I have not been around and I am unsure if I will continue to keep it online. For now though and throughout the summer StopTazmo will remain online and you will see more of me.
    I will let you know what is going on with me in the future and will not just disappear.

    EDIT: I should probably correct myself before it gets to be too late. If I do decide to shutdown at the most I'd just remove the Manga so I do not have huge server fees and put StopTazmo.com on a cheaper VPS or something of that nature and keep the forums online.

    Hello Kane!

    Good that you're still alive...

    Can you tell us if you're still owning your site or sold it to your friend as you said last year?
    What happened with the site being offline, did you move it to a new server?

    Right now I am working on collecting a huge number of Manga updates now that the summer is here.
    The past few years Ive been in school and this last year due to bills from loans and expenses Ive been forced to work full time and that has been extremely hard on me consuming large amounts of time leading to me to neglect StopTazmo but with summer here I have more time on my hands.
    Wouldn't it be better to make ST an online viewer page like onemanga.com or mangafox.com and use advertising instead donations to keep this old place alive?

    Ive lost a huge amount of money this year keeping StopTazmo open even though I have not been around and I am unsure if I will continue to keep it online. For now though and throughout the summer StopTazmo will remain online and you will see more of me.
    That sure is hard to swallow. So ST will have it's last summer...

    I wanna inform you that some old people of the forum have gathered here:

    StopTazmo Chitchat Survivors

    If it's possible, please give us some contact info (email or msn) so mods and others can still be in contact with you. We didn't forget about what you did and we loved this place very much...

    Maybe we can transform the manga library alone into a online viewer and keep the forum alive somewhere else?

    Thank you for coming back and all good luck with your life...

    A few active global moderators might also prove to be an effective spam counter measurement.

    A friend of mine have gone into business together so things are more of jointly owned. The site was down due to abuse issues. It was not moved servers, at least not in the last year or so.

    I do not know if StopTazmo will be online past the summer, I suppose it depends on how I am doing financially and time wise. I had to spend a lot of time working on other things and honestly forgot about this site for a few months and then kept saying I'd be back but put it off.

    I'm here now, I've got some time and I will have to see how things go.

    Well, things arent looking to rosy xD
    But Im happy youre back too!

    Id help keep the order around here as long as this place still goes too, if its necessary...
    But still, you have to look into your own stuff to see if you can afford all of this... Could you at least let the forum open?

    Maybe a new supermod would help. Jyuu is gone, same goes to some others...

    There should be some mods steady to clean the place when you're not around, so how about appointing some people to supermods & mods while the place is still around?
