[Cross posted from little blue Street Prophets.]
Note: The Daily Kos satellite site Street Prophets will be closing down soon. The following is the text of the diary I posted over on SP. Please help me get the word out to everyone who took part in making that site so memorable that the end is near.Many moons ago I posted a diary about the closing of the Street Prophets site. When our great orange satanic blogfather made the big change to Daily Kos version 4.0 (DK4) it was decided that the various satellite sites supported by the same servers as Daily Kos would eventually be closed. Well, Markos Moulitsas has contacted me to let me know that, due to some recent changes to Daily Kos, an independent Street Prophets site will no longer be possible. This is our eviction notice I guess. But it's not like we're just being kicked out onto the street. We do have a place to go.

Markos still did not set a specific date but felt it was necessary at this point to let the SP community know that the closing of the site is indeed imminent. I have been assured that the content of this site, the diaries, the comments-- will be archived but that it may take some time to make them readily available.
I hope that those of you who have not yet joined the Street Prophets Group over on Daily Kos will do so and keep the conversation going. There are many delightful groups over on Daily Kos and many of the regular Open Thread diaries provide a sense of strong and caring community. I have been warmly welcomed by those that splash about in Bill in Portland Maine's kiddie pool known as "Cheers and Jeers". And J Town is a great place to relax and share your day. There are more than a few of us Prophets strolling the streets of J Town.
So, please voice your concerns, ask questions, reminisce. I'll be coming back to this diary over the next couple of days and will send Markos a link to it and encourage him to log in and respond personally. A kos visit [to Street Prophets] is a rare event but not entirely unknown. I'll also let our beloved founder Pastor Dan (pastordan) know that I've posted this.
