SMF For Free - All Sites Down
Legal issue with our hosting provider. I may need to do donation drive now in order to move elsewhere.

NO Eta when sites will come back up.

Bad news their decision is final to pull the drives. It will be at least 3 to 5 days for sites to be back. There will be some data loss. Posts and topics are safe as of right now. But attachments, changes to styles, pictures made since 12/30/2015 will be lost for sure. Custom domain users we will have to change the ip address for your sites. I am moving everything away and this probably cost me tens of thousands of dollars to complete disaster.

All custom domain users should be back as well.

If your site is still down open a topic in the support forum.
