I didn't have any problems, I did log in yesterday, as did everyone else on the Admin/Mod team.

Can you help us by describing your problem?

Was it SQL error page, 403 Forbidden, 404 Not Found, redirected to another site? I am not aware of other members having this problem, but it doesn't mean it isn't happening.

Any info you can give will certainly help.

I was able to get on yesterday but late last night/early this morning about 1 am Mountain time,the site would not pull up at all.
It would tell me that it had timed out trying to load the site.

I don't know a lot of technical interwebs stuff.... but, if we are on a shared server, possibly another website was using up all the ether?

It doesn't seem likely at the middle of the night that our forum would be so busy it would time out.

I had no problems with the site yesterday.
But, if it happens again you might try typing BWOL's address into the search box.

Please let us know if it happens again. If it does happen, could you save a screen shot & post it here for us? That will help us to see what your problem may be.

Interestingly enough, I went to that link you gave maestra, & it told me the site was down for everyone (even though I was logged in). Later, when I went back to http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/, it said it was down just for me. I was still logged in. Thought that was interesting. Never heard of that website before.

I had an issue on that day, too. I tried logging onto the forum in the AM, but when the site wouldn't come up I just moved on and didn't try logging back in that day. I am using a Mac w/Safari browser. I was impatient and didn't wait for an error message. When it just sat there trying to open, I closed the window. Usually, I figure it's my computer or the forum's server. Sorry I can't be of more help, but wanted to confirm that something was happening for some of us on that day.

I don't recall whether I tried to log into BWOL on Friday or not, but I can say that I have had a *severely* challenging time with BWOL off and on for quite a long time (months). I don't know whether it's just me, if the site is down as a whole, if it's my internet service provider, or what. Some days, even if I can get logged into BWOL, I can browse all I want, but if I try to post something, it's like the whole site crashes and I can't get back in for days.

Funny thing is, up until today, every time I thought "I ought to post about this and see if anyone has any answers", it would happen and I couldn't get the message posted.

I haven't been having any trouble today.
