Did the forum disappear

Prev13
Yeah the site was down for a while. First there was an error message. Then later it was redirected to the main EA page (with no access to the forum)

    There was a lingering DNS error, in layman's terms the site was still there but our service providers didn't know how to get to the website.

    That explains it, then. I was wondering what was going on. I searched online for answers but got very little information - One comment on EA's Twitter help account, and one on an outage site saying the forum was down (made by a user, not the site).

    Yep, that was me. I was having forum withdrawal. I was missing y'all too much.

    I may or may not had opened a ticket with EA inquiring about the issue. That was an Abbott and Costello routine if I ever saw one :lol: :roll:

    That is really strange! I know I came on at about 10pm ish and it was working fine, but when I went to reply a PM about ten minutes later I couldn't get on for the rest of the night :?

    Glad it's back anyway!

    The issues started about 5 pm in the afternoon. I had issues then and after 3/4 of an hour it seemed to sort it's self out.

    I was able to get on all the time after that. There was issues with the game too but they didn't seem to last long for me either.

    Yeah there were problems then because no one could get on for the last hour of the conspiracy game so it had to be extended a bit, then I thought it had got fixed. 5 hours later and it was gone completely! :shock: scary!

    @ wij lol aw, well it's back now! :D

    I was off the forum and checked out Twitter. And other forums - LPNintendo, one of my neighbors let me know what was up with the site so I just shut it down for the nite. Great to see all is well this morning.

    Funny thing is I couldn't get on here via my ipad or my iphone till this morning.

    But I could on the PC. But then I never sign out on my PC so maybe that is why. It happened before too. :-)

    I don't think that's it as I never sign out either!

    What we need is a disaster backup!! A place where we can go if the forum ever goes missing again like a facebook page.

    Or some other super stable place that will always be there!

    I made allot of friends here and it is always possible that one day they will close the forum.

    OK I made a facebook page. search for Roly Bertram. If you want to create a fake Facebook page its no problem just drop a hint if you request to friend!!

    While I figured it would go back up after not too long, I will admit I got a little uneasy, and agree that we need a backup :lol: Like when you go to an amusement park and say to meet at the fountain, if we get split up and our phones don't work

    not facebook though :P
