There was server failure recently

Postby Niner Alpha » Wed Nov 14, 2018 4:10 pm

You will notice lots of error message repeats in some of the forums. The site was transferred to a new server the first of the week because of a catastrophic server failure and in the transfer errors occurred in the message board and new image uploads. This also took out some site features and controls for the time being.

To prevent confusion, I deleted several posts in this string. Some of those posts stated that the site was coming to an end because of major corruption to the message board functions and no more money to throw at repair. However, a new course is going to be attempted to make repairs at no dollar cost. This will take a while.

Got a bogus email today saying the site had been hacked and that I had to remake my password. If anybody gets one of those it was not from me. The site wasn't hacked and nobody has to change their password. The problem was with a server and with the format of this board being not up to date. Don't answer or open any such email.

The repair to the site hasn't begun yet. It should begin shortly.
