PostSubject: No doubt you noticed the site was off yesterday   Mon Apr 20, 2009 1:58 pm

I apologize for our place vanishing yesterday. Even I couldn't access any part of the board, but I was able to get into the admin panel where Forumotion hosts their support boards. Let me tell you that the board was awash with angry posts from several others who have boards here, and it appears that nearly every board that Forumotion hosts was affected in the exact same way. After trolling through several postings, I finally found a posting from a moderator who said that their server network had suffered some sort of bug, and that they were working on it. The admin said that they expected the problem to be fixed by today, and it appears that they did so.

I am sure that many of you have observed a few problems along the way since I moved us here, and I have taken note of them. What I might do is begin archiving everything with the thought of finding us a more stable home. In this way, the only trouble to you guys would be that you'd have to mark the new web address. For now, the folks at Forumotion keep telling me that they know they are having some issues, but that they are working right now to upgrade and improve the flow of things here, and to be patient. So all I can do at this point is ask that you guys hang in there with me. If things do get better, than all is good. And if not, then I'll move us.

Part of the issue is that Forumotion is a free site, and as such, the level of quality won't be the same as it would on a paid site. So, like I said before, I will one day (when I can afford to do so) move us to a paid site that I will personally fund. You read that correctly. I will never ask for any money from you guys for being here. Believe me, it would be more than worth it to me. The things I learn from all of you, plus the friendships I have found here are worth so much more to me than a few bucks a month are. Cool

I'm glad to see that we didn't just have another forumnation collapse. Things are just starting to get good on here!

I know! Laughing And when I wrote the mods of Forumotion, I was like "no forums? We have almost 1,700 postings!"

And they wrote back today:

"Actually, you now have 1,721 postings! Shocked "
