I would worry that Illumanus' account was suspended because it's the first of the month ... but the last time somebody asked a few months ago, there was no problem with finances for running the site.

I would say that it's normal for a site to go down from time to time ... except that in my last year of heavy use, I've not seen it down once.

It's troubling.

I wonder if they got hacked? Yesterday when I was looking at the site, instead of the normal TI3 logo I was seeing some big image of an orc at the top, which was weird.

Been down all day. Lance probably knows by now that his site is down.

Here's why - the Wiki is still being restored, the forum is back up.

Everyone,

Hostmonster shut down the site because of too many files on the system. I had received a warning about it a few weeks back and had planned to move the site to the new host but alas, I forgot. New host is a cloud host and we will have full control over the system settings, so we can have as many damn files as we please. 8-)

I've migrated the forums over for now and am working on getting the wiki up, though this will take awhile since there are so many more bytes.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

-Lance

The guys that shut him down because of too many files are the ones that advertise with "UNLIMITED Space & Bandwidth" on their front page.

Any word on this - the forums were up yesterday but then things got weird - it said that my account had been deleted and then I saw some other, long standing members listed as ex-members (including Lance) and now the site is down and directs us to godaddy.com?

Hope everything is ok.

The site was hacked and Lance posted that he was working on a complete restore of the system but did not have a date for it since he now has a full time job. He will be getting to it as he can but will not be given a surefire date as to when it will be up.

From Lance

TI3Wiki is DOWN

5 August 2011

The forums have been hacked and all user accounts were deleted.

I have no idea why anyone would do this, but someone has.

I have off-lined the entire site so that I can fix issues without interference from 3rd parties that prefer the nuclear option to patience.

I know for many of you this means games will be permanently on hold and this is frustrating, but these circumstances have been unavoidable. I would suggest using boardgamegeek.com or FFG forums in the mean time. If you would like a plain-text copy of your game's stats, I will be accepting requests for copies by email.

I have a full time job these days and do not have the free time to dedicate to this site that I once did. Progress towards bringing things back up will be incremental, and I am no longering offering a restore date estimate.

If you would like to discuss this with me directly, feel free to contact me: lance.gatlin@yahoo.com

Happy gaming?

-Lance

P.S. So you don't have to keep hitting refresh, I will mass email all users once the site has been restored.

I had been hoping for an anniversary surprise. No such luck.

Is it still heavily Shattered Ascension based? At one point, it was mostly about variants, which I have no interest in, unfortunately.

Sadly, no. A new site would have to be created from the ground up. Jbaxter tried, but found the amount of work required way too much.
