Nothing about the cause so far from xper as far as I can see, not even on the moderators' section of the forum.
I find it rather annoying how cavalier xper seems in communicating issues to his readership base. Is it just me?

Re: MSFN.org state

Unfortunately, eclipse has recently been seized by hostile members. I STRONGLY suggest you stay away. The original owner and source of funding, Win32, was booted out. He no longer has any control of the forum, so do not trust it. So I go create an account there. Today I receive a message in reddit ...

Re: MSFN.org state

I will heed that warning. I was told by the person on reddit a whole long diatribe about some conflict, and it just made me dizzy to read. So I may be best to avoid the site

I was told to give it some "positive influence"....lol

Re: MSFN.org state

I was approached by someone at reddit who saw me posting about MSFN. He/she asked if I could pass along the URL of his/her forum (which they cite as similar in nature to MSFN) https://forum.eclipse.cx Now I haven't even clicked on it yet. I asked for more information, but if others are familiar with...

I can ping the site by domain name and by IP address, but I get a timeout when I try to visit the forum.
I can't connect at all. Problem loading page in Waterfox.
I never knew you were in Western New York? You're not far at all. Greetings from across Lake Ontario.

Still the same this morning. That simply isn't good. And the fact that xper refuses to be contacted in any alternate way, isn't too helpful.

Re: MSFN.org state

@Dibya: No this came up before. Xper seems to have secluded himself somewhat ....lol. I realize it's "his" forum, but when you've amassed a group of users to start relying on it, I then view it as a responsibility one has to those users.

xper REALLY needs a way to allow us to contact him other than the forum. This is getting crazy over the last year.

Re: MSFN.org state

Never mind. Yes I see Xper's explanation.

I will say, xper has a tad of a responsibility to us users (even if this is HIS board). We had no communication or way of finding out anything. And he's cultivated a user base who in turn have developed a sense of expectation from the site.

If worse comes to worse, we'll have to get word to greenhillmaniac, Roytam1, NoelC, jaclaz and a couple others to get their butts over here ...lol

Just signed up (but I should have joined ages ago)
And, yes, I cannot get on to the site either. As of last night, just the forums are down. But now the whole site is down.
