Forum down again
 
Hi

Did anybody a downed forum for the last three days, or was just me?

Yep, was down for me too.

Really hope the forum activity recovers. Most probably still think it's down, given the general silence since then...or even in this thread/the one I commented on in feedback.

I mentioned on a Facebook page that the last time this happened postings dropped off dramatically and I don't think they ever recovered.

Ascariss, a reply/update on what happened would be helpful I think.

So here is the situation, the site used to be hosted by germancarfans long ago, then hosting was provided by worldcarfans. When motorsport.com bought out WCF they did not want the forums or the hosting costs so Clinton Deacon who used to be the tech for WCF is providing the hosting for us at this moment free of charge. I presume the ads are covering the hosting costs. But I guess the hosting crashes sometimes but eventually it does come back.

The option is to stick with this free hosting or move the hosting to another server. The thing I wouldn't know where to start with setting up a forum on another dedicated hosting service and moving the forum over.

I can take suggestions from members what to do.

as to what happened, I have no idea, clinton never contacted me regarding the downed site, so I presumed it was just a server issue and the site would be back up eventually. I did let him know back when he took over hosting to let me know if the costs would be too much for him to cover, so far he hasn't said anything.

I say let things as they are now. Forum was down three or four days but that happens only eventually. If things go worse (i.e. forum down every month or so) then we can think about moving.

I would like to have a forum with a responsive theme as I really do not like having to navigate through a desktop skin on my phone. Perhaps upgrading to XenForo or a comparable software. I think Xenforo is pretty cool.
