    Hello, everyone. Sorry for the downtime! Unfortunately, it was out of my control since there was a massive problem with our server provider in their datacenter, there was really nothing we could do besides waiting.

    Although the forum was back, some tables in our database appeared to be crashed, as well as some services that we run in our server. I've tried to fix everything in the past hour, but there might be some bugs - please report them here if you find anything that isn't working properly and I'll try to fix it as soon as possible. I believe everything is working fine, but who knows. :P

    Oh well, sorry again for that! Hopefully this won't happen again, but if it happens since our server provider is probably still messing around with their servers, feel free to follow our Twitter here for updates!

    Sincerely yours,
    Owl.

    Man, let's focus just for a second on the issue, imagine the panic in their offices (ovh) when everything happened, must have been a nightmare in there!! (some clients of ours went down as well, and our project managers were almost crying yesterday trying to explain that we couldn't do anything about that).

    Anyway, welcome back opf, i've missed the forum, i actually did, at least showed us how much we like coming here and forgetting about outside world's problems! :)

    Yep, must have been a proper shitstorm, not even talking about compensations that they will have to hand out and the aftermath of that. But the most important thing is that everything is online, no doubt.

    Shouldn't the facebookpage(old/new) work as a medium to communicate these kind of things too? Next to twitter (because i don't have twitter :p )

    Some thought untill the next dropout! I'm glad the forum is back!

    Yep! And if you think about the fact that "officially" their main servers went back online after only 2 hours, that's an impressive job there, then of course to get all their services back online took a while, but the actual response time was impressive! for as fun as it was to read all those memes, kudos to their technicians!

    Sure, I'll try to use more FB for these kind of things, but usually Twitter is just more handy for quick updates. I made a FB update today, but it was right in the moment when the forum came back online, so I just deleted it. :P

    Nice that the forum is back! Kinda annoying that there was no way of finding out what happened while it was gone because the fb page was deleted :/

    Yeah, there is, but we don't want to share every tweet on FB, usually the reach isn't very good as well.

    We use Twitter for these kind of situations, and we have a new FB page as well, I advise you to follow at least Twitter for updates about situations like these in the future.

    1. I didn't even know there's twitter
    2. I don't have twitter and I'm sure there's lots of others here who don't have it

    @Deathstroke and @Iki Hotaro both messaged me asking if the forum is down and in the skype group there were also a lot of people wondering about why the forum is down so I'm guessing there were a lot of people who didn't know what was going on.

    Sorry, I don't wanna sound like I'm complaining, I just wanted you to know about it. If you have different social media then you should at least use them all to share sth important like this.

    That's understandable, that's why we are advising people to check our Twitter in situations like these in the future. It's not like you have to follow every single update of our forum on Twitter, it's just when it's down. You don't need an account for that, nor do you have to follow ours. It's a 5 second check on our account and done, it's that simple.

    Well, posting the update on Facebook won't take any longer.

    Our old FB account was taken down and it was easier for me to post an update on Twitter, since we have a bigger following there and lots of members haven't followed our new account yet.

    I could have done a lot more, sure, like sending text messages or postal cards to members' addresses, since not everyone uses FB... That's not the point I'm trying to make. I'm just saying it's not that hard to visit our Twitter from now on since I can't possibly warn every member in every communication channel and it's usually faster and easier to write quick status updates on Twitter, especially if I'm not home.

    I'll try to post on every social media channel we have in the future, but I still advise everyone to check our Twitter from now on when stuff like this happens, that's why I used this thread to post that on the main post. It's not really a big deal and this doesn't happen regularly anyway.
