hm, how do you know they are down indefinately and everything was lost?

i went to the site and i get this message:

"Sorry, but this board is currently unavailable. Please try again later."

let's hope it was just a fluke in the server and nothing was lost. that would really suck if everything was lost, i have had that happen to me before and it's not a good feeling.

if worst comes to worst ... feoa is always open to any escort enthusiasts. with the new server we are on, we can handle the traffic and have plenty of bandwidth.

i got this from another post from evoscort:

Well, I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is, some idiot at our ISP decided it was a good idea to unplug/cut power to our server without properly shutting down. This resulted in hard drive corruption. Not failure, corruption. In effect, our mirrored raid hard drive, designed to save us in case of hard drive failure, was also corrupted. We have no other backup. We relocated to our current ISP in a move to strengthen servers and provide backup so that this type of situation would not happen..... unfortunately, new and improved idiots turn up daily.
Our forum.... corrupted. Our database... corrupted. Our www site... corrupted. We lost everything.
I cannot express my anger at this time, and heads will roll when daylight comes around.

The good news is, I'm about 60% done with the new site I've been working on. We'll have a completely custom forum.... Due to this event, I will make the site available in stages, starting with user accounts and forums. I'll be coding around the clock until I can get this thing done now.... it has taken me 2 weeks to get to apx 60%. That's not too good of news, but news, none the less.

They're probably doing some work on the board. I know some posts have been kinda messed up in the last few days. Also, if it was going to be shutdown, why would they have updated the frontpage before entering the board just a few days ago?

Okay here's an update on what's going on. If ERDT is to exist at all we need Jordy (site admin) to restart the site again. He's been AFK all day. Even if he does start the site all the information that has been amassed in the past year or so will have been lost completely. IE: User names, profiles, how-to's, videos, pics, website addresses, classified deals etc.

It's going to take forever to rebuild what's happened.

whether or not erdt uses feoa's message boards and makes 1 huge escort forum...or if they get started back up again from scratch. doesn't matter to me, as long as one of the 2 happens. i just don't wanna see a major escort site go down. keeping the community big and strong is the goal.

I hope ERDT comes back up, I just sent 300 bucks to a member for a front bumper, and that was their way of letting the rest of us in the GB know what was up!!! I'll be pissed if they don't get it up and running, I was beggining to split my time between these two boards. ho-hum...

well if you have the email of that person ... you can let him know he can continue to feed information for the group buy through this message board if he needs to. not sure if you have any way of contacting him besides the erdt forums.
