I'm back on!!! After having limited access to this site, I was able to log in with this link: http://oad.iclanwebsites. ... com/

This concerns me though because over the last several months, my access has been intermittent... I'd say I've been able to log on once out of every 10 attempts, and then I quit trying.  I had given up and migrated to a different forum (sending invitations to friends on XBL), and shortly received notification that the site was back and working properly (with a few hiccups).

Guys, I don't care where we meet, but I'd love to know how we can avoid this in the future.  I notice a "keep this site running" box on the main page... is there a fee for the basic site here, or is that set up just to eliminate advertisements?  I'd like to open up some discussion about this depending on the answer to see what everyone values in a forum hosting service.

This site is great when it works... I guess I'm reluctant to give up on the other one though, at least until we figure out what happened here and how to avoid that issue again.  In the meantime, I'll put a banner notification stating this site is back up to hopefully redirect traffic here.

Easiest way to explain it is that the host changed some DNS settings. That in turn effected several sites on this host. Which from what I found out no one was informed about.

It was so bad that I couldn't even access customer service to get it fixed.

Luckily I finally figured out a "backdoor" and was able to get things fixed.
And "NO" it shouldn't happen again. I have sat up several domains and am still waiting for another to be released, and have sat up securities so that if any changes are made by the host the domain settings will notice and update automatically.

Now all of this does not come cheap and that is why there is the donation box. It is literally to "Keep This Site Running"

The $25.00 per month donations are only a portion that is allocated for this site.

As I stated in the newsletter, after a few months something BIG will happen.

It's a bummer there's not a free option... unless they do and they're not itemizing features on their website.  What is the $25 going toward in the "keep this site running" box?  I went on the iClan website and their paid plans are listed as $5.83/mo (for the Premium plan), $14.15 (for Premium+), and $33.32 (for Elite).  

Have you thought about just keeping a free version if it's available?  It would suck if no one else pitched in to financially support the site.

I have tried writing this 3 different ways and have deleted them for fear of hurting some one's feelings. To protect everything to do with OaDGaming it cost more than just the cost of the site and the domains.

As i stated before "The $25.00 per month donations are only a portion that is allocated for this site."
