I wonder if anyone even noticed that the site was off line for about a week, Sad...
Yup... Pete wrote to me to see if I knew about it on he 21st. I don't know if he wrote to anyone about it. I did notice that the last user to register was a bot "azaada " 5 days ago. I can't remember when the forum came back online and if this user registered before of after it came back online.
The admin page is completely different now, so there was some update either planned and the reason for it being down or it was updated after the crash.
I didn't email anyone else, though I was thinking about it a lot. It does look like there's been a major update and perhaps that's why it was offline, if they had trouble with it.
OK. So the answer is that all of three people noticed that the site was off line for a week. Even sadder.
I understand the need for upgrades. What I don't understand is the mystery. Why no advance notice that the site might be down for some time?
