Hey fellow Obductees,

Chogon wrote:The Cyan and MystOnline forums need to moved again so they will be unavailable starting tomorrow (Dec 5th) at around noon PDT and will last several hours. Then once the servers are back up then it may be another 24 hours before the DNS records (the thing that tells your browser where the servers are) to catchup to the new server address.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes anyone and will be working hard to get things back up as quickly as possible.

Thanks,
Chogon

We all know what this means...

Backer forums ETA Thursday 5 Dec 2013 ~3 or 4 p.m. Cyan HQ time!! (Note: this is an optimistic estimate! ;) )

Let the eager anticipation begin! :mrgreen:

Possibly. Or maybe they're just undoing some of Smapty's funky DNS ;) Or maybe they're making room so they can reinstate the DRC website/forums.

Hey Mac_Fife,

True enough, they may be working on those things too (that latter of which I am enthusiastically awaiting!), but considering the hints they have been dropping over the past week, I'm still voting for the backer forums later today. :)

Oh, yes, I do hope that's true. Please, please, please let that be true.

Hey, we're back!

Sadly, the DRC website and forums are still empty. :( No announcements from Hannah et al. just yet either.

However, interestingly enough, although http://hunrath.com remains unchanged, there is also a http://forums.hunrath.com. I hadn't thought to check this before today's outage, so don't know if this is new.

That's just the default behaviour for subdomains that actually don't exist (or haven't been configured properly), showing the main page instead of a "not found".
So whatever.hunrath.com gives the same result. The same is true for hiredark (like forums.hiredark.com; this had also led us on a wild goose chase for a while, looking for something.hiredark.com instead of hiredark.com/something ;) )

Hmm I wonder if anyone used a different email to sign up for the forums than they used for Kickstarter or PayPal?

In update #30 they say backers forum access will be based on your forum email address, so if you have a different address from the one used in Kickstarter or PayPal (perhaps you signed up for the forum ages ago with a different address) make sure you change it in User Control Panel -> Edit account settings

It would be helpful to know by when the email addresses needs to get sync'ed. Can it be any time, or does it need to be by a certain time when Cyan might run a process to import the Backer Forum memberships.

Ummm, different addresses for all of them. I hope there is either as way to tie aliases together or as JW says update the forum address to get access.

Or update our KickStarter address - if it's not already too late. But we need to know if it's matched in real time, or when the process will be run to create the Backer forum memberships. We should try to avoid manual membership corrections later that would eat up Cyan's time.
