One thing I can assure you is I have a complete backup of the forums at all times and everything is good on my end.
The problem is with the host. They are undergoing a very large upgrade. One of the advantages of this upgrade is Dance Forums will be or it's own dedicated computer on the fastest possible connection. I've been with this host for a couple of years and they are really good at what they do. This is the first time I've had a problem and it's because of the upgrade. There shouldn't be much more downtime.
I wonder if it's just this Central California to Central California Coast thing. There is only a few of us that this happens to . . . I sometimes have to login many times just to get a single response in . . . then I hit enter, and 10 minutes later . . . it takes! :?:
