I've been having a lot of trouble logging in recently. 3/4 of the time of I get the 'Cannot Find Server' message. One of my PbP players has said the same thing.

Is there an issue with the site?

Hmm I have had no trouble with it so far but will ask my hosting what might be going on.

Same here, I have been having huge problems getting on to the site, this started more or less just after the change in hosting.
I have not said anything about it, I just assumed I was the only one Smiley

If it keeps happening, we should take down the times, and when we do get on, we should post them here.

Thanks Nif.

It's happening to me right now when I use the bookmark for the new site. I had to use the old site address to get in. I'm surprised it's still up, unless it's just a re-direct that somehow gets through whatever's causing the glitch.

So it started when we changed the hosting and not when I changed the site address right? It happened while the site was on the temporary address?

Just some thing that help me talk to my host.

Personally, I don't even get the 'cannot find the server' message. It's just that on this site, Internet Explorer kills itself about half the time I click a link.

I noticed it start right after you announced the change to the .net address. I changed by bookmark and started using that, but a fair amount of time the "cannot find server" message came up. The old site address bookmark still works just fine. I assumed it was just a bug from the transfer that would work itself out.

There should be no bug simply because it is a simple change... I will give one more week and see how many people are usn the old address instead of the new one it might be caused by that, then I might have to shut the old one to force them to use the new one.

Just happened to me again. I tried refreshing, closing my browser and coming back in again, and then waited about 2 minutes and tried again.

I got in through the old site just fine.

I have sent a mail to my host support.

The site shows absolutely no error related to your accounts so I supposed it is not a site problem, if the old address works just fine it is not a database or downtime issue as well, this leaves the routing and dns for the new domain, give me some time while I sort it out with my host.

Sorry for the big trouble guys, sometimes thing just don't go as smoothly as they should with technology. :/

As expected it is not a server issue, I changed one configuration according to my host's request see if anything changes on your end guys.
