    Not sure this warrants an entire topic, but for the past two days, I haven't been able to access the forum. I was finally able to access it tonight, but I was just wondering if anyone else has been having problems ("Unable to Connect" messages on the page and so forth) or if the site was just down due to maintenance.

    Re: Wasn't Able to Access The Site for a Couple days...

    Yeah the whole site was down. I guess I should mention this, but when this happens we have a back-up hangout that we go to. Here's a link to it: http://www.hobbylink.tv/groups/gundam-forums-refuge/. If don't have an account to this site, you can easily set one up.

    We also have a Skype chat room that we rarely use.

    Same with me for a couple days. Honestly, I wish we could just go a few months without this happening again. I keep getting worried it won't come back up again.
    Ways to reach me if the site really does go down:

    I honestly thought the site was gone and decided to check again on a whim.

    Yeah. Thankfully we haven't had anything as bad as early 2013 though where it went down for a few months because of some hackers as well as months of dataloss.

    Then there was the incident before hand where some hackers made the index rather...distasteful. (Thankfully you could use URL's to get to the sections of the sight but man it was a pain in the ass)

    Yeah TLDR I too wish this site was a tad more reliable.

    Must be all the Neo Evangellion/Transformer fans that were hating and decided to hack the site. I don't understand why you would want to hack a gundam site...*Calls upon Jesus Yamato* I do know that I almost had withdrawals not being able to access this site and look at all the WIPs and kits that we wish we had threads.

    The site was down due to a server issue. Not hackers. That was something that happened years ago.

    Wasn't hackers. Server had to be reset. Sometimes the problem is just as mundane as that. Though, we have been attacked by hackers in the past. Mostly by guys proving that they could hack websites and make fools of the admins and users.
