    Default Forum back?

    Is the forum finally back? I think its been gone for at least 3 weeks. Used to check every day, then every few days. This is the first time I tried it this week and it seems to be working again. Or is this just the glitch and it will be gone again tomorrow?

    Quick, someone post some pictures. I'm in withdrawal.

    Yes, there was a DNS problem with the software firewall and it prevented the site from loading. I was out of the country when it happened. Apologies for the extended downtime

    As I think about this and don't know if it can be done or not. We have nearly 7,000 members which we know only a handful are active. Before we loose those too. Would it be possible to to send an email to the members list that, we are back up and running? It wouldn't have to be long or big. Thanks for reading.

    I'm in the process of trying to send an update email now, it may take a few hours. Its very difficult to send mass emails out nowadays, its frowned upon due to the loads of spam emails getting sent out.

    Let me know if there is anything I can do to help get the word out. Yeah mass emails unless they are from an opt-in type of list are a sure fire way to get blacklisted. (I deal with that on a daily basis for some of our customers).

    Glad you got it back up, DNS issues can be some of the toughest to isolate and solve, too.

    Thanks again for all of the work you put in on this site.

    I sent Jewel a message letting her know that the forum was back up.

    I also put a post on Sebastian's FB page.

    Red, I also hope that you all fared well during the recent storms and flooding.
