    Default Are the MinMax Boards/Brilliant Gameologist website down for anyone else?

    It seems to be returning a web host message.

    I also cant access the site. I do not hope the same fate as dicefreaks has befallen the Min/Max Boards/Brilliant Gameologist...

    Nope, logged in this morning and got same message as you all have. Seen this a couple times before. Most of this times it was back up relatively soon.

    It seems kind of odd that it's redirecting to http։//box305.bluehost.com/suspended.page/disabled.cgi/www.howsyourmuffin.com, rather than something along the lines of http։//box305.bluehost.com/suspended.page/disabled.cgi/www.minmaxboards.com. Did it do that when it went down before?

    And on a related note, does anyone know if Olescamo's monster classes are hosted anywhere else?

    Yeah, I tried to go there just now for Oles' monster classes and got the same message. Man I really friggin hope they aren't dead forever. That'd be super friggin sad.
    Life's a bitch, so if it's easy you're doing it wrong.

    I live to die, I love to lose, I trust to be betrayed, this is who I am.

    I am NOT a Master level optimizing game breaking machine, as many of the GITP people are, forgive me if my posts seem to have glaring flaws in their logic of game mechanics, it's probably because I didn't know a rule or a class, please feel free to educate me though!

    I want them to get back up so that I can easily access the ACF list.

    So have we learned an important lesson today?

    We should probably get some backups set up.

    Yeah, when (hopefully) they come back up, we can probably start storing some of the guides on google docs.

    I think we both know I have not. The only possible solution is for someone else on this forum to copy-paste everything from the other sites.

    There's been a general advisory up for some time, the boards were supposed to move hosts.

    Not sure what became of that, but this downtime is likely related.

    Someone probably didn't update the DNS.

    Really, really hoping we don't have another forum down for good. Saving all of the WotC boards stuff was traumatic enough, and that had a bunch of lead time.

    As the guy who was supposed to be in charge of moving the boards to that new host, I can confirm that it's not related, and have no information on what's going on.

    And as the new host, we did not receive the data before this event. So please back up everything possible via Google cache, etc.

    Minor side note that you can ignore all Arhosa material (PbP excepted) - all of the homebrew is backed up.

    I know the BGs had been sorta disinterested/feeling put-upon about it for a while, thus the talk of moving. Anybody got an active contact for them? I'd hate to think they decided to just shutter it, if the move wasn't going fast enough..

    Do you think this calls for another thread index? And, do you, Meg, or Prime have a timeframe on how long we have until the old sites are gone?
