Great news! We raised enough money to upgrade the site to resource level 3. It should run faster now! I found a different way to upgrade and also discovered a discount code, so it was less than originally estimated. :) Hooray!
The site is paid and will now be up until January 2018!
Our costs for three years:
$191 for domain and server
There is a 7.9% fee per donor on GoFundMe. We've had 28 donations so far.
Additional money will now be saved for the site being up past January 2018, and for prizes for future contests. :)

Thank you so much everyone!
Long live Potions and Snitches! Chocolate frogs for everyone!

Keep P&S online!
Hello everyone! With the need for Potions and Snitches to be crowd funded now, I created a GoFund me account for the site. The first $191 funds will pay for the current domain and server. Additional money will be used to upgrade the site and pay for additional years of use. If we reach our goal we'll be able to upgrade the site so that it loads faster and doesn't have so many time out errors.
If we raise more than our goal, the excess may be used to further develop the site, maybe buy some prizes for story winners.
If you'd like to donate, here is the site:
Thank you! Let's keep Potions and Snitches alive!

WINTER FIC FEST
So sorry that it has been so long to award Featured status for the 2014-2015 Winter Fic Fest, what with the issues with the site being down, and personal issues for us Admins.
As a result in such a long delay in awarding featured status, we have decided to award all entries in the Fest, 'Featured Status".
Because Darkorangecat, submitted several stories, we have chosen the one that best fits the 'Winter Theme'.
Congratulations to the following authors and stories!! Great job, and again...our apologies on the delay!

We're back up on a new site!
Please update your profiles! The area has been updated.
Since the site was gone for so long, I decided to buy a new domain name and move the site so we can get back to reading, reviewing and posting stories! While inaccessible, no stories or reviews were lost during this move. Hooray!
Unfortunately I also had to purchase a new host server because I was unable to figure out how to work the new domain otherwise. It is my hope to register the group as a nonprofit and be able to have the community pay the server and domain fees through donations in the future. This way we can avoid long periods of downtime due to renewals in the future. I will update you later on that as plans are made.
The new Potions and Snitches website is called potionsandsnitches.org. The old one was .net. It does not seem like a big change, but it took a lot of work to make the switch. It will likely be awhile until we can be sure all old links and images are updated.
Thank you so much for your patience and support through these frustrating times.
We will soon post a list of all the stories added and updated for the Winter Fest for your enjoyment. They were added right before the site went down.
