Site is currently down.
Our primary server has experienced a hardware failure and is in the process of being replaced.
This will by necessity require a complete site re-installation and restore from backups.
At this time the backups are being evaluated as the same hardware failure has caused some degree of data corruption in the backups.
For the time being it is best to "STOP" all connections, but do not Remove or Delete them.
Once the site is fully restored all donor members will be double credited for the full amount of down time.
Status Updates will be added here daily, please do not email for more information unless you are a Staff member or Uploader.
Dec. 2nd - ETA at this point is at least several days up to a full week.
Dec. 3rd - Data recovery from backups continues.
The extent of data corruption is greater than originally expected so at this point it is likely that the site will be restored to a prior date.
From there all essential data can be manually recreated - uploads, donations, etc...
Dec. 5th - Rebuilding of the site is underway.
Rather than rebuilding the site to it's previous state (moving backwards) we will be moving forward with long overdue site updates.
This means that in many areas the site will be much improved, however it will also be a little rough around the edges initially as we sort out and correct minor issues.
This will also allow us to quickly move forward with some very exciting changes that will be announced when the site is back up.
