I didn't see anyone menion this yet, but there's a new update on the placeholder:

Quote
The data for the site has been completely recovered. The site host is in the process of rebuilding and upgrading the server and the supporting infrastructure. There is still no ETA on when the site will be back up at this time.

The OO Forum Staff - 4/24/08 1020

... and here I was starting to worry that "Rip" was going to become an acronym.

It got mentioned before the whole LM is pussywhipped by his buddies soon to be bride discussion started  icon_twisted

That's good to hear, but man, three weeks with the end still not in sight?  I hope the forum population will be able to bounce back.

I wonder if any of the mods are gonna bounce back?

I'd be surprised if they didn't, a few weeks even if it went to months isn't really that spectacular

I'm here to stay. Now that I've converted to the dark side and became a full-time console gamer (except for OOTP which I still play on PC) I enjoy the Console tilt of the site. And I really like the community. I just hope there isn't a mass exodus when OO comes back online.

I was thinking that with Popehat gaining members now and Gamingtrend doing very well, is OO really necessary? Popehat covers the non-gaming related discussion side of the community and this site has Gaming Goodness a-plenty. Between the two sites, OO seems redundant. However, when the site comes back I'll still visit the forums regularly, but I'll probably spend more time here.

Don't worry, if we lose the majority of the community I will break out of my 1 post a week mode and try to wiggle my way into the little clique. I have a few people on the OO boards that I like to think of friends that I talk to outside of OO but who knows. That maybe hope to wiggle my way a little deeper into the clique  icon_smile

Hitler : He's the same size as Koivu, 5'10" 190 lbs...

The OO upgrade should contain a hell of a lot of bells and whistles by the time it is up or else I'm confused as to why we are still treading water.  (Mandatory ocean/squid reference.)

You realize the downtime isn't because of an upgrade, but rather because of the hardware failure and needing to rebuild the server and site, right? If you're expecting magic fairies to come and serve you coffee and donuts while a friendly gnome types up your post as you dictate, you're going to be a might bit disappointed.

I know this is a hobby, not a business, and I appreciate Rip's hard work. But the fact remains if one of my servers went down, I had no disaster recovery plan, and it took me a month to rebuild it, I'd be fired without a moment's hesitation. I hate to even say that because it sounds ungrateful for Rip's volunteering of hosting the site, but as a network admin I can't help but think it.

I feel the same way. IMO, this has gotten beyond the point of ridiculous. I have nothing personal against Rip at all, but others have already offered to host the site. It's quite obviously a low point in his priorities, which is fine, but I'd suggest letting someone else handle OO from now on. His comments along the lines of "it's just a forum, lighten up" I think are indicative of his thought processes on this issue.

A lot of people have expressed their concern about losing their favorite community, and well, I just don't understand what could take a month. I really don't. The community may have been effectively killed - if not, it's probably getting close to that. That said, GT is a great community in it's own right, and I'd be happy hanging out here.

I appreciate that he's hosting it for free, but personally, I'd rather pay than to see something like this happen again.

Actually, I was referring to the the comment on the holding page about the upgrade to the server which I think I misinterpreted to think of as being an upgrade to OO instead of the hardware.  I don't know what all that involves or how long it takes.  Besides, I wanted serving girls not fairies.
