We are back...

Hey everyone, thanks for your patience this last week, I know it hasn't been easy. We are functioning again, and hopefully will stay that way. This is a trial run to see if we have nailed all the issues, and so if it goes down again... will have to look deeper.

 

The Chamber is being split in half, as we simply cannot handle the traffic we are getting now without raising a significant amount of money each month. The Chamber and The Chamber Vault.  Any stories predating 2012 will be stored in the Vault and can be accessed at The Chamber Vault, reviews can be left as usual and logons are the same. These stories will not be able to be edited or updated, and if you wish to resurrect one, then you will need to contact the admins.

We are still in the process of moving some stories, which will take a little time, but it is better than being offline for weeks more. I know this is not a perfect solution, and it is going to annoy many people, but it is our only real option if we want to stay online.

We hope that this time the fix holds, as last week was a series of things working and then going belly up again. It would be very helpful if people could report on Facebook if they are having any issues or things are working well.

 

Happy reading!

More Downtime

Hey everyone, sorry about today, and denying you your fix of all the excellent writing here. We were down for a significant amount of time and it was because we got hit with a spam bomb, essentially crippling our database, causing it to drag so much that you were all experiencing the connection issues.

I have been working on it all day, and i think we are back in good shape, including a server move to ensure clean files.

Would appreciate people reporting if things are working/missing etc either in the shout or on the fb page. The more feedback we get, the more we can locate any further issues.

Thanks for your patience and for anybody who emailed me, if i didn't respond, the email accounts were affected too, although that all seems to be back on track now.

 

I certainly hope this is the end of the issues, this si certainly getting tiresome and exhausting and no fun for you either.
