    Yes, the forum was down for a while last night but that's the first time this week that I know of. let me know if it keeps happening and I'll ask Bosken to check it out

    On Saturday night, I'd almost finished an H-D related article, was just adding photos, then suddenly the forum site went down. Awe heck!

    Glad to see it's up and running again.

    I suffered a few forum issues this morning, thankfully short-lived. Without going into detail my question is thus.......

    In the event of a forum failure are there any other available means of contacting the site administrators to notify them the site is down? Or do we just have to wait until they notice it and subsequently sort it?

    I had no issues but I would guess when the server does go down unless the owner of this site owns it, the company that leases it to him or her will be pretty quick in getting it up and running again..there will be more than one company using this server so it will be noticed fast.

    I'm so sorry I didn't spot this post and respond sooner, I've been a little busy recently and have had very little time to be on the forum - what time I have is spent vetting membership requests so that we don't get spammers back in again. In answer to your question the forum only tends to go down for very short periods so that software updates can be done. If there's an issue that means the site has to go off line for longer periods everyone will automatically be redirected to the intro page where you will see a short message to say we're down. if the forum goes off line unexpectedly Bosken will normally be aware of it fairly soon after and will take steps to try and sort it. I don't think he actually sleeps at all! Hope that helps
