Emergency Announcement/Contacts in Case of Forum Downtime
« on: March 01, 2024, 05:36:02 PM »
This came to mind given the recent MR forum downtimes (esp. the one last December) that we don't actually have a means to check on the status of the site and who to contact whenever it comes down.

I recommend establishing an alternative means of communication to ensure us MR veterans are still in the loop and kept up to date on expected restoration or worse-case-scenario the forum is permanently shut down.

Personally, I've taken it upon myself to announce forum downtimes on via my Twitter page, as my projects are wholly active here, though a more formal announcement and status update would serve better  :-\

Good idea!
I can't find the original post, but there is technically an MR Discord, albeit rather quiet, and the owner doesn't seem to be around any more, but often when there's MR downtime we all check up and are like "is it down or just me" "yup it's down", kinda thing.

Here's the join link https://discord.gg/HcBASQ54VD

Suuper hit the nail. I encourage people to hop on the discord. Although quiet, it is a good place to reach out to forum members who don't frequent the site like they used to.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF
