Forum Downtime 2017

Hello everyone,

I know there's going to be questions and/or feedback on the recent forum downtime. I tried to keep members of the Facebook page as updated as possible but I understand not everyone who visits the forum was there (An obligatory plug for people to join/follow one of our social media presences here).

The forum server license ran out. I have been in contact with zef and the license has been paid again for another two years.
We are discussing long-term solutions for this on-going problem. I know the forum is important to a lot of us (me included), and I also do not like that we are having this issue consecutively on an annual basis.

I wanted to make sure you guys know that this is an active discussion and we're doing our best.
Thank you for the patience.

Holy crap, I thought that the last downtime only happened a few months ago and no it’s been a year O.O

I’m just glad that is back.

thanks for getting the forum online again. I would like to say, however, whoever is responsible for the facebook group please accept pending requests to join it. I was getting info on the forum downtime from there but people were always asking for the group to be secret and my request to join never was accepted.

I'm happy everything is back to normal.
It always feels weird not being able to check AHS daily. It becomes routine. But perhaps ownership of AHS would be better in someone else's hands that will actually stay on top of things.
