Oh yeah, a couple of times. Not counting their trouble last year with PHPBB upgrading which took them offline for weeks. We had the same problem.

And I don't recall ever seeing any open discussion of these "unexplained outage things".

And there are two commons, one from Tim he was waiting for a explanation from Bill or Jake.
In my vision they did the only right thing in this time of serious matters as a deadly virus and falling stock markets all over the world.

Both Jake and Bill seems to me reasonable people. They simple stoped there useless extention of the Village Pump.
And let's from now on talk about serious matters as grown up people.
And not like a bunch of stoned hopping around monkey's as aggie expressed this whole slapstick a while ago.

for the record, this is the earliest evidence for when the site went down. 8 Mar 2020 14:45:33 UTC

On March 7, after 16:00 UTC, I accessed Wikipediocracy normally. It is now 9 March 23:06 UTC.

But this is the first time we see this message, isn't it?
As far as I have understand the hosting has stopped.

Simpel, the end.

According to Burns, via email:
Malicious bots overloaded the server, host shut us down until Somey can fix a few things and they approve the fix.

That's kinda funny actually. I wonder where those bots are from and why target that site. I wonder if it was someone related to Wikipedia.

Maybe Somey can send Abd a PM to ask for help and side moderation. :mrgreen:
