Before Area 51 and the spawning of new Stack sites, people could (and did) pay to host sites using the Stack code. One example of this is Photographr.info which, much to my surprise, is still actually alive and functional. Since I'm a mod on that site, I posted a system message (which is how I've since discovered that the FAQ isn't entirely accurate in the difference between mods and high rep, but that's another discussion) to funnel to here and warn people that the old site is now inactive.

The question, though, is what will happen with the data there? There are questions that would be closed/deleted here, but there are some good questions with good answers and so I would hate to see them lost.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mattdm - I hadn't actually gone through them, it was just something that occured to me as I was poking around. I should do that, however, since there may be answers of value if the questions have already been asked. \$\endgroup\$
