Same, for pretty much 7 hours.

I forgot how to life, I need an explanation. :badger:

The site was down for everyone so don't worry it wasn't just you ^^

[joke]The staff realized long ago that humans can only handle a certain level of cuteness at any given time so we have "cute-o-meters" stationed around the forum to test the cuteness levels and keep them at a safe level. Last night they got dangerously high so we had to shut down the forum temporarily until these levels returned to normal for everyone's safety [/joke]

I'm not sure what really happened, it was likely just a server issue, they happen every now and then. Meadow or the admins will likely know more

It was probably either a server issue or forgetting to fund the website like last time.  Either way, the website's back up, so it's all good now, right?

With all your Halloween icons going around, this almost seems believable. :lol-fox:

Sorry about that!

I wonder if we could of beaten the most users online record.

Also, does mashing F5 every few seconds use up any funds (just curious, because if so I'll reduce the frequency I check for new unread topics)?

I do believe it's members rather then activity because the larger user base can put stress on the bandwidth and so on. Although I'm not completely sure.

Yes.  It's not super-expensive, but when it happens for prolonged periods, and/or when multiple people do it (a rapid-fire PM conversation, for example), it adds up.

That said, we're not talking about a huge amount of money, and my own procrastination was a factor; I got the notification that the account had a dollar left in the evening, and forgot about it until I was on my way to bed, but that's normally enough to last a full day.  So, half-asleep me said "Meh, I'll deal with it later".  But instead of it lasting 24-36 hours, it didn't even last 12 hours (from the time of the notification).  And I slept in pretty late that day.
