STARSCAPE BBS HAS MOVED
 
Starscape BBS's zeta server crashed the other night, taking the whole board with it. I sent a mass email trying to get the remaining member list that wasn't damaged to let people know that everyone was migrating over to the backup board, which is now the primary board. The URL is still www.starscapebbs.com, and typing that in will get you there, but you will have to re-register. I made that process as painless as possible, and hope you will come join us there!

I guess Shameless perhaps wasn't the best choice after all. :p

(Just kidding of course. :D).

It sucks that everything is gone, J. Right after I made it to a hundred posts too...

Actually, I have a solution for that.
I still have Spamicon 2009's final results tally. :devil:

Is something up with the board again? I got a 404 on the backup server.

The board must be down because everytime I type that into my address feature, it says: Board doesn't exist. Wonder what's wrong?

I just found out myself. As soon as I find out what's going on, I'll let you all know. I promise.

I received private messages and emails from several moderators and members informing me that Starscape BBS was giving an error.
This one:

404: Board Does Not Exist.
Make sure you did not mis-type the URL.

I immediately became concerned because that error means the board is either missing or gone.
Server errors do not give that kind of error code, and if you are here, this means the software itself is gone.

I will be honest with you: In all likelihood, the board is probably gone.
This is the kind of error you see when the board has been deleted or removed from the server.
There can be many reasons for this, from copyright issues to just board removal.
Since we're hosted on a free host, there doesn't have to be a reason.
I will keep you informed.


UPDATE (3:53 PM EST):

Starscape BBS is gone. The site was removed at 7:50 AM EST this morning.
Reasons: None cited.

I'm sorry kids, I don't have any backup for this one.
Starscape BBS is gone. :(

Unfortunately, Starscape is gone. We've moved so many times the membership has dwindled down to very few, and it's not our fault, it's just the unpredictability of our hosts. That being said, Starscape was a great board, and I am glad to have made her those nearly 5 years ago. To all my former and current staff who made it possible:

I'd recommend terranbbs as an alternative home to the starscape crew. It's a smaller board with a welcoming core population.

Dude. Put the forum back RIGHT NOW or I will reach through the screen and choke a bitch. And when I'm done with that I'm going to choke YOU! :mad:

Kidding aside [wait, he's KIDDING?! WHEW! --Somebody] put the forum back up and give it a month. I think we can get the population back up and make it alive again.

Gimme a month, tis all I ask.

Otherwise I choke a bitch so hard. :shifty: [again with the threats, someone should medicate him -- Different Person]
[hey I'm not a doctor I don't medicate people -- Somebody]

In all honesty, I'm tired. I loved that board and still love the community it fostered, but after 5 years and several major crashes with complete database losses in all of them, I just don't have the power to put it all back together again. I believe we've run our course, and I will miss it, but we can move on.

That being said, please visit my dear friends:
http://renext.nusseymagazine.com/

ReNext is an awesome board, and it's atmosphere is like ours. They're a great group of people, and I'm a member there, too. Great board. Great discussion, and they need their help getting their community built from a previous crash.

Blarg.

Fine.

Give me admin access to what is left of Starscape. I will run the shit for you. :techman:

I was only there a few weeks but I quite enjoyed it. I think it is worth one more effort.

Otherwise: choke a bitch. :scream:

:shifty:;):guffaw:
