9/23 Announcement: Forum Downtime

Postby HoodedMan » Thu Sep 23, 2010 10:09 pm

Our host recently implemented server-side compression of Web pages to save bandwidth; this caused a conflict because we were already doing that. This caused the forum to go down for an indeterminate amount of time until I was able to log into the database directly and turn off our compression.

We did not receive notification that the host was going to do this, so we did not anticipate this conflict, and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Thanks hoody. These outages aren't that bad- they just make people appreciate the forum more;)

RIP Kurt Wagner. You were the character who brought in me into comics, who introduced me and inspired me. Now your death has sent me away again. Wherever you are in the Marvel Universe, I hope its someplace pleasant.
