Gang of Five Downtime
« on: October 13, 2013, 09:15:53 am »
Hi guys!

As you have probably noticed the Gang of Five has been inaccessible the past couple of days. We are not sure what is causing this issue. It is sadly out of our reach as admins and is most likely a server failure on invisionfree's end.

We all hope the board will be working fine again as soon as possible.

EDIT:

The problem is the gangoffive.net URL. If you still access the GoF from that URL, please change to http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/index.php

You should also adjust this URL in your favorites/bookmarks so that you no longer get the problem with the redirection.

It finally started working again for me. I wonder if the issue was fixed.

Yeah, I kind of figured it was a problem everyone was having with this site rather than just me, because all of the other sites I frequently visit were working perfectly fine. Thanks for letting us know about this, in case if it continues to happen.

Glad the site is back up.  I knew it wasn't me since if I have any problems with a site I copy & paste the address into http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ & it will tell you if the site is down or if it's just you.

I am glad to see that the forum is back up.  Hopefully whatever issue invisionfree was having is fixed now.


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Mender's Tale.

Hello:
 I am also very glad the page is online again :DD . And that link Kor gave is very useful as I have used it before.

 Let's hope the page will remain online... but very curious it went offline for the 10th anniverssary :blink: .

I can assure you we had nothing to do with that and it was a very bad timing on their part :/

I'm very happy that the GOF is back working once again. I "was" worried that I had an internet connection problem with my laptop, but I learned from my gof skype contacts, that it wasn't only me.  

Nevertheless, :D I'm VERY happy that the GOF is back up!

Me too. As Iris already said the admins were just as affected by this as any other member. Most likely some kind of server-problem of invisionfree. It happened before, though I believe this was the longest case so far. Anyway, we're back ;)

Glad to see that I wasn't the only one that had this happen to them.

Wow, I was out of town this weekend, so I didn't even notice :lol
Glad to see the issue was (hopefully) resolved, though! :D

I thought it was my internet connection at first,then I realized that all my other sites were working fine. I was in the middle of reading a fic when it crashed,now I can't find that fic again..darn.

It's a shame it went down but I had quite a busy weekend anyway so I wasn't affected too much. At least it's back online now and the issue appears to be sorted. :yes

I had a chat with a few other members in the Skype Chatroom but I was just as anchored down as anyone else. Server issue happen from time to time and usually it's beyond our control.

Still, good to have the ol' girl up and running again! ;)

I noticed GOF had went down again. I assume it was due to server issues again. It started working for me just a few minutes ago.
