In the next few days, MF will be offline well... for a few days. The downtime has to do with our host wanting to move us to a $40 a month dedicated server.

You see in the month of July we did 150 gigs of bandwidth. Today at lunchtime there were 150 users here. What the fuck. Everyone is on edge and I went from being a happy trolly to a nazi administrator. Users that cause us to do any moderation are being removed, it's just easier for us that way.

It doesn't help that we are being "watched". Even on Sundays "they" are here.

Good luck with that. That's a hell of a lot of bandwidth usage. Perhaps changing the spoilers forum and CT forum to "Registered - Hidden" would help matters?

my question is why when the site's been down the last couple times, a few or several days worth of posts are lost? is this site not backed up regularly, or not backed up just before it goes down? i posted a new thread in the "Original Trilogy" section back on Aug. 30th, and now it's completely gone after came back online! and the previous downtime, i posted a reply in another thread, and that reply is gone. looking at the post dates in the "Original Trilogy" forum and others, you'll see the gap in dates. what gives?

It's hard to have every single post and thread backed up when our hosts servers crash on us. We try back up regularly but when the rug drops out from under you, it's a bit of a tricky situation ;)
