Early this morning, going into late this evening I’ve been locking and disabling accounts on this website. Within that period of time, I’ve gotten a few emails regarding the accounts that have been affected by this. I’m not sure if you guys know this but a month ago I made a post about activity on this site. I clearly stated that non activity would result in locked and deleted accounts. I’ve said it before and I will post it now– if no one reviews, then no one posts, if no one posts this site is dead.
There have been a few kind authors that decided to participate in posting their stories online, to only receive scarce, if not zero feedback for their work posted. To be honest, that can be a little discouraging for a author. I’ve made several attempts to help with the reviews issue: I’ve made a points balance system, a rewards program, and even electronic gifts. There’s only so much a owner can do to help with that. We’re not asking to review if you don’t feel the urge to. We have other sections of this site that require activity such as : Category Groups, The Help Center + more (Browse the Site Map)
So from this point forward, accounts that have not been active within 30 days or more will be locked, if the issue is not resolved within a reasonable time frame after that then it will result in account deletion. If a great amount of users are deleted after this post date, then the site will be shut down.
Excerpt taken from 1.) The Site Rules Page , 2.) The New User Confirmation Emails
We are now requesting that each new member agree to an added review rule, which entails at least 5 reviews within 30 days of being a member. If that rule is broken or not followed, there could be a chance of accounts being locked, or account deletion. The authors work very hard on their stories, and if positive feedback isn’t noticed, then eventually they will no longer be willing to post. We hope all current and new members understand this very important rule to save the site and it’s vitality.

Please Donate To MJJLegion
I never thought I would place a donation button on this site. MJJL has been online for over 2 years (in different forms) and I never really needed help with it. As some of you guys know, the site went offline several days ago. Within that 24 hour offline period, I received over a dozen emails and Facebook Messages from members. Sadly the time has come when I can no longer handle the website fees alone without assistance. I would like all of you guys to thank @dirtydiana for getting the website back online, because I was not able to do it alone.
Things I Will Not Do
- Ask you to donate a huge amount of money to keep the site online. (see the cost to keep the site online below)
- Make multiple posts about the donation button. I’ve asked you guys once, so I would hope that you like the site enough to chip in if you can.
- Give you MJ merchandise/Downloaded Music or Videos in trade for your donation. (that’s called piracy you guys lol)
Things I Will Do
- Add a donation badge to your profile, you will stick out as a special member.
- Give you access to one free product once we open our MJJL Store (coming soon guys)
- Give your fiction a shout out on social media (we have over 3,000 followers combined)
Maintenance Site Costs:
Monthly Space Fee: $20.00/monthly
Domain Renewal: $15.00/annually
There’s also going to be a new membership function coming soon! If you guys could give me some input in the comments section, and let me know what you would like to see as far as member perks go. Every opinion counts to me!
