@  Elwood : (19 February 2018 - 10:58 AM) HERESY!!! What maniac would do such a thing!?!
@  xcrash1998 : (19 February 2018 - 09:49 AM) I just realised that you can actually minimize the shout box.
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 05:25 AM) and it'd be a time investment just to get familiar with all the latest fancy tech and stuff :(
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 05:25 AM) I kinda want to do some cool updates and stuff but like, there's too much to do and not enough time
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 05:25 AM) and ofc ppl can't even really tell the difference since everything looks the same, lol
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 05:24 AM) I'm a little impressed you remembered which tweet disappeared amidst all my work, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 05:24 AM) LOL
@  Elwood : (19 February 2018 - 03:34 AM) All is well with the world.
@  Elwood : (19 February 2018 - 03:34 AM) Yo Quiero Taco Bell
@  Elwood : (19 February 2018 - 03:33 AM) My "yo querro taco bell" shout is gone. This must be rectified.
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 12:40 AM) ughhh. that was painful. time for some clean-up now that I think I'm done
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 12:36 AM) BUT PLEASE DO A LITTLE TESTING IF YOU CAN, JUST MAKE A POST AND TRY RANDOM STUFF I GUESS
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 12:36 AM) OK I THINK WE'RE BACK UP AND THINGS SHOULD WORK AGAIN
@  Fire Blazer : (17 February 2018 - 01:31 AM) Idk, but hopefully not longer than 2 days, lol. Probably much less
@  xcrash1998 : (16 February 2018 - 02:13 PM) So you found a better host I guess.
For how long do think will the feshrine be down?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:44 AM) main thing is it'll probz just take a bit bcuz of how big the forums database is and stuff
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) so hopefully this goes relatively smoothly
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) ported over my other stuff first since it seemed easier and was a good basis for figuring stuff out
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) will probably do it tonight

I'm tired and busy so I'm going to keep this short, but I'm super sorry that the site has been experiencing issues, including a large period of downtime (over a day I think). Not only that but we've also lost several posts resulting from our host having to restore a back-up from February 19th, 2016—the day Fates came out. That includes shouts too... so we basically lost probably a lot of shots and a fair amount of posts.

 

Here's the e-mail I was sent today (I contacted support last night):

 

a17e2c809d8f38cc3c04e6881f39f800.png

 

I'm very sorry that this happened and am both extremely frustrated and sad/disappointed. I was looking forward to responding to all the Fates threads only to find out that the site had been brought down during the time I became busy (namely yesterday).

 

This is not the first time we've had an issue but changing hosts is a lot of work and also expensive and not something I'm ready to invest in quite yet—I need more of a... money buffer (like, a sum of money I'm comfortable with spending if need be that won't affect other more important parts of my life) so I can justify it/be comfortable doing it, as well as a significant amount of time to actually make the transfer, lest things get held up for a few days.

 

I hope that you'll not be too taken back by this and if you were discussing Fates, you try to start up new threads and discuss them again, if only a little.

 

Thanks and sorry again,

 

Blazer

Maybe the server was attacked by terrorists that enjoyed Fire Emblem Fates' localization?

I cannot imagine your frustration. But alas, stuff happens. At least we're back on, now.
