Outpost Daria

Outpost Daria

Outpost Daria, run by Martin J. Pollard, was the largest, longest-running fansite in Daria fandom history until its scheduled closure on June 2013.

On May 20, 2007, citing personal reasons, Martin announced that the evening's update would be the final one, but that the website would remain up through the rest of the year. The loss of the website's updates was a major part of the Great Daria Fandom Implosion of 2007.

On March 10, 2008, Outpost Daria once again became active, with many new fanfics being added to its archives. Further updates were made until August 2011; in March 2013, it was announced that the website was closing down in June. All material from the site was made available for download.

On June 4, 2013, Outpost Daria went offline for the final time. The site can still be found by use of the Internet Archive 'Wayback Machine'.

On June 20th, 2014, NeonHomer went live with Outpost Daria Reborn. It currently has the last copy of Outpost Daria on the site, but will slowly be updated and redone as time goes along.

Criticism

It had been noted that while Martin J. Pollard would publicly acknowledge the request of an author or artist to remove their works from his site, those works were never actually removed and, in fact, remained on the site years after the request had been made. While the listings for those works were removed from the story and author indexes on the site, but not from the What's New section of the site, those works could be found via searching with most search engines.
