Several of us have seen this when trying to login to Stage6 in the past. As of Thursday, though, Stage6 will be permanently unavailable. As many of you know, I've been hosting full sermon videos on Stage6 of Paul Washer, Jeff Noblit, Mark Kielar, etc. for some time now. I received an email from someone on their staff today informing me that Stage6 is going to be shut down Thursday for good. The email gave various reasons for the termination, but the main reason was a lack of resources and a lack of funds. It's a shame. I really like Stage6 and have profited from the high quality it gives viewers.
Your next question now may be, "Well what about all your videos!?" I thought about that and came to another decision. I have a Revver account that allows me not only to upload videos long enough to host these sermons, but also gives you the option to download them as Stage6 did so I've decided to upload them there now. You can also embed them to your own site easier than Stage6 would allow for now. It's very similar to Youtube, but allows me to upload longer videos. There are two of the shorter videos that I've posted on Youtube there now, but there should be many more coming soon. Jeff Noblit's full sermon "The Milky Way" should be up before the night is over. I hope to keep this updated more frequently because it accepts videos that Stage6 wouldn't so the conversion time factor is eliminated. Anyway, you can visit it now in the meantime:
