Site outage - March 26 - May 12, 2018 [Update 5/14/18]

Good morning,

It appears that, after a vacation of a month and a half or so, is back to operating, for now anyway. I'll share what I know....

1. Right now, the site is up but some features aren't working. For members, one of them is the 'new posts' search. Likely there are other search functionalities not working as well and I'll do some tests. Update: New posts search now working. "Like" system appears to have some tabulation/display issues.

I'm still working on getting back into the back end where mass announcements are performed and other moderation functions occur. Currently, anything that I tested requiring a SSL (security) certificate is non-functional. We had a past problem with the site SSL certificate being expired.

*Update* 5/13/18 9:50PM EDT - The certificate issue has been repaired and forum addresses now properly resolve to 'https://' with no errors.

2. Why did the site go down?

Pretty easy - money.

Paul let us know a few weeks after the outage first occurred that he was having financial difficulties and the site costs had reached the point where he couldn't afford it anymore so stopped paying for it. He did not share any resolution to the issue. We suggested that he fix the subscription system so members could support the site if they wanted to. That was our last communication, I believe around a month ago.

*Update* 5/13/18 9:50PM EDT - The subscription system currently has been removed from the forum. Unknown whether that is temporary or permanent. Still in work.

3. What now?

Use as normal, feel free to add any comments/problems/concerns to the pinned thread on the site outage in our Questions and Comments forum, and enjoy it while it lasts. I have no idea how long that will be.

Please accept our apologies for the site outage and I hope the site remains stable and a helpful resource in the future. We'll keep members informed with what we find out. Thanks!

[Update 5/14/18] Paul has contacted moderation with detailed information and the good news is that he intends the site to continue and will be sharing with members directly soon via public announcement/post.
