I could not access the forum for a whole day. I was surprised how it made me feel. Suddenly, I felt vulnerable. What if something goes wrong? Who will I turn to for help? Who was I going to share my experiences with? I missed the banter and discussion. The universe seemed to swallow me whole and I became just one lone traveller once again. I am so glad to be back!
Totally lost. I was even checking Reddit for news
I asked the question in our ETARC group on steam, hopefully someone answered so I felt less lonesome
@Oldgods, If you work on the new CSD forum, could you at least let us an informitve “error page” because we never know where the problem come from
I even googled “ETARC Forums Down” to see if anyone else was having the same problem…
I was similarly vexed
It was down for around 18hrs in total. Couldn’t get on it last night either.
Must have had tech issues or surely there would have been a splash page or announcement?
Chrome was giving me the error “too many redirects” so I think was some kind of DNS issue. and yeah, started sometime before 11pm (UK) last night
I eventually reported it in the zendesk
18 hours!? It felt like two days… I felt surprisingly uneasy. Like an itch from a ghost-limb…
I know, felt totally cut off from the Mother-ship!
I checked it around 18:00 GMT and it was down then, so yeah around 18 hrs but it definitely felt longer!
Specially having a new update/patch between our hands! There was lot of fixed stuff I noticed and wanted to communicate… wondering if there were other new stuff I missed…
Not lucky enough to play on PC so us plebs on PS4 have to wait for all the cool stuff
Was a lonesome time with ‘Etarc Coms’ out of contact. Was worried the pending server transfer had wiped me and I’d never find my fellow Etarcians again.
Looost iiin spaaace.
Scared me at first, “where has ETARC gone?” But the error message said “redirect error” so I thought the site was finally updating. nope, just down. Glad to be back
I assumed it was my browser at first
It was the Russians!!! lol
A redirect to a “Temporarily Down” message would have been helpful.
I did have the passing thought that something may have been going on with the ARG. …and also the thought that my IT dept. blocked me… so many thoughts going through my head and things I tried to bring the forums back up (in case the issue was on my end).
When I saw that ETARC was down, I assumed it was part of the ‘transformation to the CSD forum’, wish it was…
I actually had the same issue with ‘too many re-directs’ the day before, which I could fix. Not the day after when it happened again though … The forum was stuck in a loop, felt totally lost
It was, actually.
