forum.keyswow.com - Nexus forum down?
« on: July 23, 2009, 13:27:44 »
Does anyone know what happened to the forum at keyswow.com? Seems down now. First I was getting SQL error messages, now it's gone for good. :(

I don't have any email address of the administrators, so  I've got no clue, what is going on. If someone knows, please send me message...

I just hope, it get's fixed ASAP. That was one of the last active Nexus communities out there... would be a shame to see it go like that :(

That's pretty strange nevertheless. Someone must have already noticed the problem, since the SQL errors from a few days ago are gone now... so someone must have already changed something. However, I simply don't have a clue, why they just don't put up a "Sorry, forum is down" notice at least. If they're interested in keeping the forum and community running, they better fix the problem soon or at least inform the members, that it'll get fixed rather sooner than later. Not doing anything at all is just not a good sign, I fear.

but perhaps they are, and we don't know it. But yeah, sargoth or ionstorm should come in here and give us an status report, at the very least...

Well, i did a little research into making forums.  Found a site that seems simple to use.  Drop me a line if anyone is interested in making a backup forum.  And i too hope that the keyswow forum comes back up

I don't think we need another forum yet. That would only help splitting the community again.

Hi Folks,

Still no news from Sargoth yet (still trying though). But as for new forums, if Keyswow is unofficially dead and not simply feeling a bit poorly, then we do have the beginnings of a new forum on ModDb.

Not long before the Keywow forum arose, a small group of us got together and created 'The Nexii' group there (you can find it here http://www.moddb.com/groups/the-nexii) in an attempt to get folks together again and the forum was started as part of it.

EDIT:

Just received reply from Sargoth, no actual info yet... but he's going to check in with Ionstorm, the guy who got the site up there for us to begin with.

I think admin may be trying to get it sorted. I did find it up and running last night... even though a month or two's worth of posts had been wiped off. I'm getting the 'broken link' error at the mo...

Recently recieved word from Sargoth...

Our Nexus forums should be back soon. Apparently, a member of the keyswow host broke the SQL server which caused so much despair.  Ionstorm then started kicking rear and got it fixed ( evening 26/7/09)... and then they deleted our forum! So it looks like we'll be losing a month or two as they resort to a back up.

The dark night is almost over, dawn approaches...

Looks like IonStorm's setting up a new server (check the old keyswow link) and will soon have the forums back online :thumbsup:
