Hey, Riddick, nice to have company. I couldn't get in about 9am pacific this morning. I shot him an E-mail inquiring before I started dinking with my android(tend to do that). Hopefully Fan has some data back-up.
What I glean from a search on the error that comes up, it appears the forum database crashed
I sent Fan email in the early AM via the webmaster email on the error page but haven't heard back. I'll see when I get home, I may have another email addy to try in my desktop address book. Couldn't hurt you send email too
Dunno how much he keeps tabs on the forum, or regular backups. Hopefully it's not a start from scratch sorta thing.
It may be he's indisposed. Being the weekend, I'd give him some time. It doesn't come back and we don't hear from him by Wednesday, that'd definitely not be an encouraging sign for the FF's future

The main site's sudden suspension came as a shock and I'm not near over it! I left you a PM about it at Into Infinity but turns out you'd already posted here.
I've also sent Doka an email directing her here, and one to Fan inquiring about the FF account's change of status
We can only hope it was an oversight that can & will be rectified before too long. That said, more than ever we may need to consider the possibility it won't be coming back.
I'm committed to keeping the Lifeboat open. Into Infinity would be another option for posting but while it's an Art Bell genre site, the proprietor has a no politics rule. Still, I'd say it'd be a good idea to use it as a backup if THIS site goes down
So, that's about all I can tell you for now... Except that in SE WI, there's one helluva winter headed our way with ice and heavy snow. I'm not at all happy about THAT situation either! But it's just one of those things to get through ainit
Anahoo, ideally situated or not IMHO we got no good reason to stop what we were doing. It ain't fancy like the main site, but it's functional. And for sure The Lifeboat is open for business!! Feel more than free to post whatever whenever, KWIM?
