Recent Downtime
« on: August 13, 2019, 11:47:42 PM »
We want to extend an immense apology for the recent downtime. It was unforeseen, and measures have been put in place to prevent it from happening again.

Our original host was updating software, but didn't provide a warning more than a couple hours before starting. Unfortunately, the updates broke the forum software. While working to fix this, the server suddenly became unavailable without explanation for several days.

The website has been moved to a new, hopefully more reliable host. This was an option available entirely thanks to the generosity of our members. Thank you for your support.

In the future, we'll try to warn the forum when downtime happens. If you ever have questions and the site is unavailable, the staff is available by email at polytheistmonastic@gmail.com.

Thank you to everyone for understanding.

Please note we are still having a problem with displaying and uploading avatars. We're looking into it. The rest of the site should be functional. Thank you for your patience.

Excellent. Thank you for all your hard work behind the scenes, handling one problem after another. The forum is lucky to have you. Now that everything's back up to speed and functional, let's announce it on the Facebook groups and let people know we can get back to our regularly scheduled discussion. Three weeks of downtime is a lot, and I think some folks wondered if the forum was down for good. So we need to do a little nudging to remind people we're here again.

(P.S. I did notice that the change-over affected your "Positive Asceticism" article - it put a bunch of strange characters in place where the apostrophes were. We need to go through that and replace them all with proper punctuation so it's readable once again.)
