Anyone know what's up with SWAG the Star Wars Artists Guild?

The site has said "Down for maintenance" for just over 2 months now...
What gives?

http://sw-artists-guild.deviantart.com/

It came up for me from a Google search. Is this perhaps an updated URL than what you might have saved in your favorites? Can you access this?

I got the impression that they "converted" over to deviantart... I had an account on SWAG years ago... I wonder if my stuff is still in there....

Doesn't seem that way. That site has been open for 5+ years, Swag only recently went down it seems..

As a SWAG artist for about a decade or so...

I have no idea.

It was supposed to be temporary maintenance...but it's been going on a long time.

The Deviant Art version of SWAG I personally voted against. I thought it would dilute the actual SWAG site and make it less relevant.

I think history bears me out a bit there, but at least if the main site is down, deviant art is still there.

If anyone needs art off of it, there is always the WAYBACK machine.

For those who may not know, it's an archive of the internet. It periodically takes 'snapshots' of websites and stores them as-is.

https://archive.org/web/

Go there and then in the search bar you can enter:

www.swagonline.net

Then select year, month and date to see what SWAG had posted on that date.


Hopefully the site gets back up though.

In case you haven't seen;
We're back.

We are officially back online. I apologize for the long outage. There were a couple critical security issues that had to be handled and in the course of doing this, various other issues arose. What looked to be routine maintence turned into a multi-week project with a bit of debugging. We are back though and all is well. Let me know if anything looks amiss and I'll prioritize fixing it asap.

Thanks for your patience as always!
