Forum problem?

Post#1 by Ed_P » 25 Apr 2013, 17:31

When I tried to access the forums about 2 hrs ago I received this webpage response:
Porteus.org is coming soon! Please come back later.
The URL I was using was:

viewforum.php?f=81

Obviously since I'm posting now the problem isn't repeatable.

It might be wise to change the verbiage on the message.

Fair enough. Maybe changing the default msg to say that would be less unnerving to visitors. :)

For example:
Porteus.org is undergoing maintenance at this time. Please come back later.

Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

@EdP:
Please do not get discouraged or depressed. This is how these guys react, sometime. I hope you will be relieved to acknowledge that they are not always like that. :wink:
