What's going on with the site?

Post by Yukki » Tue Jul 01, 2014 4:39 pm

I've been experiencing errors in teh chat when my internet is clearly working fine, until I reopen it again to see a page that said that Hippotank expired, then it gave me a link to purchase another domain. The same page reappeared when I tried viewing new posts.

Then the site worked again normally until it repeated itself with the same process.

And before I even posted this, it occurred again.

well, in order for sites to works and have urls, like chao island does, it needs a domain, which people can either pay for or run from their homes, which is usually ill-advised unless you're super secure
mooncow likely bought a domain to host hippotank, chao island, and other connected pages, and it just temporarily went down until any transactions had occurred to keep ownership of the domain and sites under it

i actually don't know that much about web hosting, but this i what i get, i think?
hey boys and girls and neither and both it's rs. vic works too

Strangely though some people, including JmT and Midnite can't even enter the site anymore.

EDIT: It's fixed now though.

We have to sacrifice someone to appease Mooncow. I'll go.

The apocalypse of CI has started. ended, it looks like the issues are gone.

Let's just hope my Esper powers don't jinx it back up.

Reminds me of a time some years ago where Mooncow like... idk, forgot to pay his hosts or something. In the end we were just all "Oh, Mooncow, you silly goober. GET A REAL JOB." or something like that.
