Once again, nightops.net is BACK!

Post by Secant » Sat Oct 13, 2007 8:00 pm

A little while ago, the domain name "nightops.net" expired. I wasn't able to do anything about it, since the name was actually owned by someone else. I still am unable to acquire it, so the forums will be located here until I do. Sorry for the inconvenience.

That being said, here are the changes I made in bringing the forum back online:
- The main site is now http://no.surgen.org
- The forums are located at http://no.surgen.org/forums
- I didn't carry over all the old posts (for reasons I will discuss later in this post), but they can still be read in the Archives at http://no.surgen.org/archives (you can check the Archives section for details)

Now, why didn't I carry over all the old posts? Well, in a word, drama. In the old forum, a few members kept getting pissed off at each other, and this caused constant friction, arguments, and drama. Now, everyone can start with a clean slate. Just let bygones be bygones and get over it. To the great majority of you that didn't participate in the "bicker wars," thank you and I'm sorry you have to be disadvantaged. Oh, and one last thing: please don't name names. Let it be, and let the conflict die.

Once again, sorry for the downtime. Enjoy!

When I go to the archive I can only see the one forum, I can't see anything else...

Thanks for letting me know, I'll fix that.

EDIT: If you get a chance, mind telling me if it's fixed? I can't tell from my account.

You should make an e-mail tree so that if NO ever goes down again you can keep everyone posted because I went through hell trying to find my favorite site after it went down. (I owe TM one for giving me a link when I lost hope.)

I liked the idea of maybe trying to do an email tree. I wish we had a good amount of members back. Are there any back email address from the old site that we could email to get maybe email people where the current site is. I too had thought the site had died until I found out from Therin and got the new url. It's just a suggestion, I'm sure not many people may supply there email address though so that would deem this idea useless.

I just had an idea. Secant could make a myspace that has nothing to do with NO but then we add it and if it ever goes down the mods, admins and anyone else can help pm people of the new site url. We would need to make it seem like a random myspace (as in no big THIS IS A NO MYSPACE banner it the top of the page)

I want to keep this site (as much as is reasonably possible) on this site, and not in any external places (such as the famously insecure Myspace). However, I think I could put up an external site myself (so there's no loss of control over its contents) with a one-way message to use should the forum go down again. If that plan is put into action, I shall certainly let you all know.
