No idea what went wrong, nor is it likely that we'll ever find out.

Sorry about the interruption, folks. Just know that it was the Hyperboards server and not anything specific to The Bloks Forum.

Might not be a bad idea, but I'm not sure how Hyperboards would support a mirror, if it would support mirroring at all. I'll do a little research to see what I can find out.

And once again.

No idea what went wrong, and I'm not optimistic that we'll ever find out.

Sorry about that, folks.

I noticed that when I tried to view the forum while not logged in, the page displayed the message that only members are allowed access. This isn't how I've set up the protocols; anyone can view most of the forum, with a few areas restricted to logged-in members only.

Of course, only members can post, except in the Introduce Yourself section, but other Hyperboards forums aren't set up to be so restrictive.

Given the current "members only" status, I wonder if Hyperboards as a whole suffered some kind of bot attack, which the Hyper-Admins curtailed by instituting a blanket restriction.

As I've noted before, they're distressingly tight-lipped about the status of the Hyperboards platform as a whole, so we might not get a clear explanation.

Sit tight--we might see some down time in the coming days, but it won't be just The Bloks Forum that's down, if so.

After the Hyperboards server was offline all yesterday with no explanation from the powers-that-be, the forum appears to have been reloaded from a backup several days old. I not sure what was lost, but at least three of my posts have disappeared.

Bottom line, I didn't delete any posts or threads, so if something is missing, I regret to say that I have no way to recover it.

Best we can hope for is that the uber-admins will offer some kind of confirmation or explanation, but I'm not optimistic.


Sorry, folks.

Well, we're back.

The typical denouement gives no meaningful clue as to what actually went wrong beyond "something something blah blah blah ad script blah blah."
