Well... its been a chaotic, stressful and rough week for those that noticed the Mod Database hasn't been up for the past 6 days.

Before I begin my short rant, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the Mod Database visitors, many whom pledged free-hosting in our time of need. Unfortunatly resolution wasn't that simple as up until the 6th of February, all Mod Database files were and still are locked down. Fortunatly we have a backup which is a month old, so please bear with us while we recover the remaining images etc.. which you may notice are missing.

Now for an explanation, basically put the Mod Database's hosts (Oktagone) ran into a spot of bother with there hosts (EZZI). Now i'd rather not delve into the issue here, but to put a positive spin on this painful period, I do have to say both companies have been working around the clock to sort things out and well simply put.. nothing is as easy to fix as it seems.

There is still work to go, but it shall all be behind us in the next 24 ~ 48hours. Rest assured there will be no more downtime!

All that remains to be said is please PLUG the MOD DATABASE on your website, we need to let everyone know we're back, and better than evah! (well maybe not the better part, but at least we're back!) Oh and more positive news is that in a month or 2 the moddb maybe securing a permanent download server. More news on that in a couple of days.

Ah, so there you guys were! :o

But I kindof anticipated this to go wrong, as maintenance rarely goes according to the book.. ;)

Still, it's good to see that you guys are back. I'll mention ModDB and (finally) update my profile with my next media release. (Hopefully this week..)

Yes, Moddb being down for almost a week did feel like a lot longer, since I've been coming to this site practically every day. I hope nothing like this happens again for a while. Welcome back to life, Moddb :)

What happened to all the images? None of the galleries work...
Also on our mods profile it only shows we have 1 team member, we thought this was fixed, but it looks like its messed up again.

That's all mentioned in the newspost, ernie..

Meanwhile: the Nightwatch site is also down due to Oktagone difficulties. Everybody; please keep yer pants on! Just think of what you can do with the time you save from visiting those websites! You can do stuff such as modding! :o

I totally thought modDB had died. I even held a small personal funeral in my backyard with an empty box. But it seems that you ARE spawn of the undead, which in this case, is very very good!

I could tell people I made a DOOM mod and then take them in a dark closet and shut the door and say "Hey! How you like my DOOM mod?"

That's amazing! ;:D:D:D:DD
