As far as I can tell, the whole http://www.hostingphpbb.com site is down, which is the web host for the Order of the Sith. I don’t know when or if it’s going to be back up. Hopefully soon, but there’s not really any way to know, that I’m aware of. It could be back up sometime today, or it could be gone forever. It sucks, because there’s a substantial amount of material I want to transfer from there, but if you’re scratching your head about the status of the site, that’s what’s going on. In the meantime (especially if you’re currently a member) you can register here: Order of the Sith. Because of the shortcomings of our outdated web hosting, we were planning on moving soon anyways; what I’ve linked to is the new forum that was set up in preparation for the move.
This isn’t the way I wanted to do things, but circumstances have kind of dictated that things move ahead of schedule, and that instead of announcing it at the current forum first – as was the original plan – I’m announcing it here. Altogether though, it’s not to much of a problem, nothing that can’t be dealt with. Just sign up at the new forum (this one: http://orderofthesith.freeforums.org/index.php) and I (/we) will try to keep anyone that has an interest in this up to date on what the status of this little bump in the road is. For those of you that don’t know what I’m on about, the Order of the Sith is a site centered around Sith Realism (aka Sithism). It isn’t a fan site; a little research will go a long ways if you want to get a more in depth understanding of it.
Edit: The old forum (http://www.hostingphpbb.com/forum/index.php?mforum=sithdomain) is back up now, but the way I look at it what happened with it today just goes to show it’s time to have a more up to date, stable hosting set up. Stay tuned, I’ll probably post something as soon as an announcement of the move (and a link to here) is posted at the old forum. If you’re reading this though, you’ve already got the link above, so feel free to register at the newer forum.
