He got it yet?

This has now got beyond ridiculous.

What do you want us to do?

We're just as frustrated as anyone and want the site to be fixed, but sadly these things are beyond our expertise and control

Get a new hosting company NOW!

Not trying to rude, honestly and I really don't mean to come across as anything other than genuinely having the site at heart but this seriously isn't good enough, neither are excuses. Needs sorting.

The process has started..the owner of the site is having trouble with getting the details to move.

I understand that but that was days ago. There are 1,440 minutes in a day. How long does it take? The site is going to lose members if this carries on. A lot of people love westbrom.com but patience doesn't last forever. Albion is a community, this site is very much part of it. Transfer deadline coming up and site down YET AGAIN! Not good.

Understandable criticism if you were paying to post on the forum, bit harsh considering its 100% free to all users though......

Mate, these guys provide us this wonderful website for free! They've said they're trying to deal with it. Moving servers isn't always an easy process if the hosts they're dealing with aren't doing there job properly - they can't just move. Very unreasonable response if you ask me.

I suggest if you have a problem then contact Glenn who along with the rest of us have jobs to do away from this forum as well as having lives.

As someone who was an admin on this site then I would have expected you to appreciate what goes on and how sometimes things are out of our control a bit more but I guess not.

Genuine question, do moderators elect to leave that position on a forum or does something else happen to precipitate their leaving?

Some leave of their own accord and at times it just doesn't work out.

LOL!! Same. That is what I think Atomic means especially around transfer time! What joy when it comes back up! Perhaps it should keep going off and on again to remind us how much we like it! The Mods could put their feet up then as we all shutum and behave!!!  ;D :o ;D

Glad to see us back up and running...but if there something that can be done to prevent this from happening again? It has been fairly common over the past few months to see it go down. Perhaps make a drive for donations to purchase better hosting? I am sure that people would be willing to chip in.

Either way...Albion games cannot be taking place without this place to comment on them  :-X

For those of us who are not on Facebook/Twitter etc, you do not realise how much you miss this place until it is gone.
