Down time - sorry, nothing to worry about

Post by Rommeltje » Sun Nov 16, 2014 3:00 pm

As some of you may have noticed, the forum was down the past 24 hours or so. Sorry that it took so long to fix it. I initially assumed that it was just one of those glitches again that happen now and then and that resolve themselves fairly quickly. But as it was still down this morning, I started to think something might actually be wrong. Turns out we've been getting too much traffic this past month, and our domain host suspended us for that reason. I've now bought a bit of extra traffic space (good timing that this happened during the donation run), so we can just keep going again.

There's a good side and a bad side to this development: the good thing is that we're still getting more and more popular, thus generating traffic. The bad thing is that it's going to be a bit more expensive to keep the forum going. So if you want to help give the forum some more room to grow, please consider donating! :D (If you haven't done so already, of course.)
