So, I was just minding my own business on Sunday, planning to come back later and post a recipe, and the whole site vanished. Not just our site, but the whole hosting platform including the support desk, including the email servers. This does not bode well. Spruz was the host of our old site. They haven't done any development or posted on social media in about five years. It's possible this was just a technical glitch and it will come back up, but my fear is that the whole platform was taken down intentionally with no notice. Let me tell you, this is giving me all kinds of opportunities to question stressful thoughts.
I feel like we should have had a plan ("if we get separated, meet at the fountain" LOL), or like I should have built a new site before now, but the old site was familiar and working fine, and the task of moving it seemed monumental. But here we are. My plan is to get it up and running as soon as possible and figure out what I'm doing later. That's always a good plan.
Let me know how you're doing, how you discovered the site was gone (gulp!), and how you got here. I miss everyone terribly!
So I go away for a while and look what happens. ;-) The new site is pretty!
The email links will be broken until the domain transfer is complete. It’s out in the ether right now with the name servers pointed at the wrong site. I hope that will be resolved in the next day or so.
I can definitely delete it for you, sarah. I tend to impose a waiting period though. If you still want to delete it tomorrow, let me know and I’ll take care of it. Though there are no guarantees the whole site won’t be deleted randomly or intentionally at some point. Things seem pretty shaky over there.
Just had a chance to log in today and see the new website? What's going to happen to our journals over there? I kind of feel weird about it just hanging out without me adding to it any longer. Is there an easy way to delete it? Or is there the possibility it might be transferred over here? If not I'll probably want to delete mine.
So, so happy this new site is up! I was going a little crazy without my Happy Eaters check-in. I feel like I "know" so many of you and love keeping up with everyone on here. At first I thought the site was just glitching again...but once a full day went by, I started to worry! Thank you for keeping this forum going, Skwigg!
I’m digging the new site! Works great on my phone 👍🏻👍🏻
Hello!! I was sitting here procrastinating homework and it dawned on me that I hadn't seen any email notifications in a while. I usually get several per day. So glad to see this lovely new site, thanks for the quick action, skwigg. I'm excited for our new home!!!
Thank goodness this Plan B was done! I was wondering what had happened with the other forum yesterday, and when I saw “catastrophe“ mentioned there, it was all, uh-oh, lol. Glad to be here.
I've been worried about the old site too. I hold my breath every time it hiccups. Time to move on.
Thanks for doing all this for the forum, Skwigg! As always, I greatly appreciate the time and effort and, it sounds like, even money that you put into it.
I’ve been worried about the old site for a while. I hope everyone meets up over on the new domain safely.
