didn't they just recently move to a new server? Seems that all the forums I visit have a lot of traffic which has resulted in the servers being slow or down... pick your poison.

Just moving to our new server, had a small hiccup with some config files. No data is lost, so it should be up by this afternoon. Sorry for any inconvenience! With that said, if a mod wants to close this thread that'd be great, no reason to clutter these forums with our public announcements! ;)

Well, then you don't visit this forum.:p The server setup here has performed like a champ since launch day.

The site is back up. Here's the reason for the downtime:

Many of you are aware we were down this entire weekend.

We were scheduled to move to a new server with a new data center early this week. Our server admin, Greg (known as darklordexp on the site) had just moved into his new house (as in the day before), and he and his family returned home from grocery shopping to find the house had burned down.

Although all our data was saved, and we lost nothing other than time, its been an incredibly rough week for Greg - he lost everything. Thankfully, his fiancee and children are unhurt, which is what matters, when it comes down to it.

We're on the new box now, and will be adding more servers soon, so you should continue to see highly improved response times and page loads on the ModMy family sites.

Our thoughts go out to Greg and his family, as we are a week away from Christmas - a rough time for a blow this big. Thanks for all your work, Greg, it means a lot, and I pray your family will have a great Christmas even with the current circumstances!
Let Greg be in your prayers.

- John

Wow, sorry to hear about that. I'm certainly glad to hear that Greg and his family are ok. That's just terrible to hear about his new house. I just cannot imagine that type of loss. Best of luck with everything and if there is anything I can do to help out, let me know. My best to Greg and his family.
