Hatrack Writer's Forum?

It's been down for maintenance for more than two days now.

Anyone know what's going on?

I tried the 'contact us' web form but got no reply.

It was up for a few hours yesterday, but it's been spotty lately.

Still gone here.

It's the workshop forum I'm talking about. There are several Hatrack forums and all are up apart from the workshop.

Sometimes you don't have prior warning. Databases get munged, and you find out when stuff stops working.

The Admins may not even get your messages, frankly.

Just had an Email from KDW over at Hatrack. Apparently the board was being used by spammers for mass emailing, according to the hosts, and was blacklisted all over the place. They are working on the blacklisting and will upgrade after that to close a hole in their scripts. They reckon to up again by the end of the day tomorrow (presume that to be today?).

Yup, I got that email, too, even though I haven't been over there in, oh, a couple of years, maybe longer.

A friend of mine, who's on another forum that the Janitor at Hatrack is also on, told me that the Janitor said the server caught a virus and they're now changing to another server. They're not sure how long it'll be until Hatrack is back up, but it could be a couple or three days.

That doesn't reflect well on their host.

Thanks for the info.

So sad, that you're in such a situation. The last message is written during March, so probably the situation there, wherever that site is, is still going on. I am sorry, that you have to suffer like that. I've never been there, so I can't say anything about it, but I wish you strength and hope, that the situation will be over before summer.

And right now, tho the rest of Hatrack is there, the forum is down for 'maintenance' -- server was having difficulties all last week, so I imagine it's getting a rebuild. Email via hatrack.com is not working right now either.

Update: after a week's hiatus, Hatrack is now back up.
