Why was the site down?
« on: March 26, 2014, 03:28:37 pm »
I know that I couldn't access the forums on Tuesday, and Im really wondering why the forums were down then. What happened? Did we get attacked by some virus or some hacker? I'm just curious, and asking on behalf of all those curious with me.

It was a Database error. The error that came up describes what the issue was. Part of the site that retrieves things from the database to display the board itself was for some reason unable to due to an issue within the database.

To clarify on a few fears:
Did we get attacked by some virus or some hacker?
Nope ^^

It was a UFO! Unidentifiable fursona orientation. Someone posted a fursona so indescribably impossible it crashed the server.  :D

I doubt Weisse could tell you that since it's a Admin staff issue.

The forums are back up, so no need to worry anymore.

it seems to me that all you need to do is reset a few things and it's fixed. usually what's what you do when there is an error...

but at least we know why it was down ^^
