The Blogger platform on which Web Series Today is based allows for a maximum of 100 collaborative participants. We have now reached that limit. In order to allow new authors to join we need to free up positions to make them available to those who want to actively contribute.
Web Series Today is intended for authors who want to actively keep other community members up to date with what is going on in the Web series community. If any current author would like to give up their author position please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with REMOVE in the subject line. In addition anyone who has not made a post in the past 30 days will be considered inactive and may be removed if a new author request is made. Anyone removed can be re-instated by the normal author request process and will be added to any wait list that exist at that time. Our goal is to ensure that any author who wishes to contribute can do so in a timely an ongoing manner.
Web Series Today: Inactive Author Deletions
As explained in a previous post the Blogger platform on which Web Series Today is based allows for a maximum of 100 collaborative participants. The blog is intended for active participants in the Web series community.
Authors who have not made a post in the past 30 days will be considered inactive and may be removed if a new author request is made. If you wish to keep your author position for use in the near future, and you have not posted in the past 30 days you need to send an e-mail to email@example.com with "Author: KEEP" in the subject line.
By this point the once groundbreaking Halloween slasher franchise was a sad parody and James doesn't mince words with this epic review!

The DNS issue appears to be resolved. If you are still experiencing a problem leave a comment or tweet @webseriestoday.
Understanding what happened.
To understand what happened it helps to understand a little about the history of Web Series Today. We began as a blog called LG15 Today and as such the underlying URL is http://lg15today.blogspot.com. At around the time LG15 reached a conclusion, one of our authors decided to register LG15today.com to simplify access to the blog. At around the same time it became clear that in order to survive post-LG15 we would need to broaden the range of web series covered. This allowed us to evolve the underlying blog into a blog that now tries to keep the entire Web series community up to date with what is going on within the community. At that time I came up with the new "Web Series Today" name and asked the author who had set up the domain name to acquire and direct webseriestoday.com to http://lg15today.blogspot.com
There are two steps to this process. First, as I understand it at a simplistic level, you point the domain DNS setting to blogger. Secondly you reset internal settings within the blog to link the domain name DNS with the original blog. Thus when you access webseriestoday.com all you see is the underlying blog which is still located at http://lg15today.blogspot.com.
A number of you have asked what happened to cause the problem. The simple answer is that we do not know. What we do know is that late on Oct 22 the domain name DNS settings were changed. We have no idea why they were changed or by who. Further, only the author who had acquired the domain name had access to change them back. This was done on Oct 25. However because the web functions as a distributed network it takes many hours for DNS settings to change around the World. For this reason we delayed changing the internal settings within the blog. If you tried to access webseriestoday.com and were directed to a "Sedo parking site" with a series of links on it this meant the DNS setting in your area had not been updated. If you received a 404 message it meant that they had been updated (the 404 resulted because we had not yet reset the internal settings within the blog itself). On Oct 26 the internal settings within the blog were changed. At that point if you tried to visit http://lg15today.blogspot.com and the DNS setting in your area were up to date then you were taken to the blog. Unfortunately for a few, their local DNS settings may not yet have been updated and this resulted in them going to the "Sedo parking site" instead.
Having originally started this blog I accept full responsibility for the mess. Unfortunately as things currently stand I cannot promise you it will not happen again. For that reason I recommend that in addition to bookmarking webseriestoday.com you also bookmark the underlying URL: http://lg15today.blogspot.com. That said we will try and make sure the blog works reliably to the extent it is within our control.
This blog was set up to be a shared space where multiple authors could work together and as such it creates an open collaborative platform. Part of the core philosophy if that if you empower individuals they will act responsibly. Having an open platform is important to the Web series community and we hope that in that respect Web Series Today will continue to be a valuable asset.

One of Us is a situational comedic web series combining talented folks from England and America using improvisation and scripts. It was created to be the Master's Projects for two Bournemouth University Postgraduate Students : Hannah Mott, MADDFT, and Andrea Crema, MAPPE.
It talks about Dana Reid, an American girl who moves to the UK, but very soon she understands that nothing is like she expected.
21st October, 2011. The Rapture happens, as predicted earlier this year, but it’s not the fire and brimstone we’ve come to fear – it’s merely a routine earth upgrade which happens every century or so.
Season One of Raptured follows a lovelorn 30-something, Sarah Bailey, who is tricked into being in charge of the Rapture. Instead of the seamless upgrade that’s happened in the past, half the people have been left behind. It’s now Sarah’s job to make sure they make it over.

Cast: John Colella, Reamy Hall, Emmy-winner Marcia Wallace (The Simpsons) Tony-winner, Rae Allen (The Sopranos), Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal Minds) & Jim Roof.
Written, directed & edited by Joe Wilson
Assistant Director: Sila Agavale

Because of a DNS issue with the webseriestoday.com domain it has been redirected to http://lg15today.blogspot.com until the issue is resolved.
Mobile users should bookmark http://lg15today.blogspot.com/?m=1 to get around the DNS domain issue.
::::: UPDATE: The DNS settings for the webseriestoday.com were changed. We are currently not sure why, but we will update you when we learn more.
We took a substantial hit in traffic on October 23, 2011, but hopefully people will begin to find the site via http://lg15today.blogspot.com while we try and figure out the source of the DNS issue.
