Re: Shutting this down

There is a big difference between disabling registration/archiving forums and shutting a site down. Make sure you are clear on what you mean... This forum software should support referral registration. It is a registration method that 1: must have the new user be referred here by another user (they ...

I have his cell phone number but I can never get my phone to work with the number. It always thinks it is a US phone number, not EU. :(

Re: MSFN.org state

The host has said it was a switch problem. It is possible to get a "too many connections" type error with a switch that is malfunctioning. Generally can be caused by collisions. Try it out at home, take a network cable and connect it to two ports on your router and see what happens! xD

Re: MSFN.org state

You need to use an exit code, otherwise the text will go to the equivalent number in the US. Using the + sign on the exit code does not work, I am told the message wasn't received.

Re: MSFN.org state

Since Dencorso had posted the picture showing the "too many connections" error, we can presume that either there is some attack onto the site itself, or one of the services the site, or the hosting company uses. PS: if anyone in the US knows how to send a text to a mobile number in Europe on an Andr...

Re: MSFN.org state

I've been keeping a tab on the Social Network pages of MSFN... seems like he would have put something on one of them by now, sadly, no... Xper has never been one to do much with those. I know he does (or did) have access to the twitter account, because I had him post onto it once. For all the times...

Re: MSFN.org state

I get a timeout to the site, that is not the expected behaviour for forum maintenance. Mcinwwl, yes there is are at least 2 modes for maintenance. One is a true offline mode, and then there is an offline mode that allows admins to log in where the forum is usable. Anyone should be able to find jacla...

Re: MSFN.org state

The front page content was old because no one wanted to post news articles. We tried to encourage this because users were posting news articles to the forum itself but refused to put to the front page, as it would have required either extra work by the user and/or closing the megathreads. Yesterday ...

I haven't been able to go into MSFN since Saturday (Friday?). A few folks must have had lucky timing with their logins, because I've received some e-mail notifications of new posts in threads I subscribe to. But in recent days I've tried going in about twenty times at all different hours of the day...

The forum initially runs slow after an upgrade because work is being done to it, also there is some background sync job that is done. It it either shut the forum off until it is finished, or let it work while people can use it. Decisions, decisions.

I haven't had a problem with this software on other forums. It will take a bit to get the bugs worked out then it will be fine. If you find any problems, make sure to post feedback in here:

Site was up about an hour ago, I had posted in the "why was MSFN down" thread, but now I am getting a time out error. Yesterday, DNS wasn't resolving even using 4.2.2.2 and even so the archived IP did not work. I keep forgetting what the other URL is for the site. Also I need to get the Twitter acco...
