Glad to see the forums back up again, albeit sluggish.

About time they sorted out the forums, I had given up trying for the last 4 or 5 days, I couldn't bear clicking reply then back, time and time again.

Lets hope it holds. Smile

Sorry all - this should be fixed now. Gremlines, mixed in with some DNS goofiness.

Oh No! I was just three ISE's short of reaching level 97 so I could find the magic golf-ball and cracked cup! Sad

Thanks Jeff, it seems to be working well now.

I think you saved many regulars from a nervous breakdown Smile

WitsEnd!

Welcome back! We have missed you! Having not heard from you since the middle of November, I was *sure* you had abandoned all things Dreamhost. I suppose you have noticed it has been a rough couple of weeks.

Cute characterizations aside, the above description of what "borked" the forum is a completely reasonable explantion of what occurred, and is completely understandable to "technical" people. The more technical the people, the more "adequate" the explanation - Jeff "frobnicated" some stuff and it got better. Thanks Jeff!

At any rate, I'm glad you are still around *in spite of all the problems*. It is reassurring to me that, while others *try* to use the forum to help others weather the tough times and solve problems, there will always be "business experts" that can be counted on to surface when times are bleakest to add helpful and encouraging insights to the discussion.

Yes, it does appear fixed now. Thanks for taking the time to reply to this thread. I waited a few days to check it was working before posting again as I didn't want to jinx it Big Grin

I gotta say I don't understand customers who leave a webhost and then come back to the forum to post negative comments. What's the purpose of this? You think by being rude your feedback will be more appreciated? If you insult enough people, then you will be given kudos? Really, I just wanna understand the point of biting at the heels of a place you aren't even a customer anymore, since I've seen people do this other places and can't figure out the point of it...

Oh, I'm not a hippy who hugs trees, but a geek who doesn't go outside. I commune with my computer, and I imagine many of us here fit that same criteria heh

I do. When people are frustrated, they like to vent; and, when they have a negative experience, they like to share their compliants with other costomers.

Which part of calling a DH employee a "tree hugging hippy" did you mistake for sharing a hosting experience?

Sharing experience is a good thing, but if all you can do is whine non-stop, eventually it just makes you look stupid for staying with a company you can't say a single nice thing about. And "moved most of my sites over to another provider" doesn't take anything away from the fact that he's still sending his money to DH like the rest of us.

I've said before that I have accounts at other hosts as well. I've also mentioned that they've all had problems as well. It's a fact of life that no amount of whining will ever change. That might be why I don't hang out at my other hosts' forums and whine non-stop because they don't have unlimited domains like DH, or as much space, bandwidth, etc...

I'll also add--and I doubt I'm the only one that thinks this--that one of my favorite things about DH is that they act like real people, and happy ones at that. Their news letter is one of the few I actually read before deleting. I like that the honchos are part of the forum and treat customers like people. This is the first host I've had where I've thought it would be cool to meet them in person. And what makes all of these things seem even cooler is how big they are, as it wouldn't be as big of a deal if they only had 5 customers.

You just can't get that everywhere and I'd leave if that changed before I'd leave over problems like they're experiencing now... which would eventually happen at the next host anyway.

I also don't think you'll find many hosts that let people express themselves the way DH does. A lot of the stuff that gets posted here and on the blog wouldn't last 5 minutes at other places.
