    I guess this would go here.


    When I try to go to theforce.net I get this message

    Acess denied

    Retrieval of that file is forbidden

    I know I'm not the only one. Someone brought it up in 3sa but didn't know where to put a thread on it.

    Malkie, I was just thinking that. Mf was shut down but their boards left open. Could it be the same case?

    EDIT: MF is back up now. WTH?

    Sorry, I shouldn't have said that :p

    LFL haven't shut us down.....it's probably just a server glitch. (I believe the boards database is held at a separate location to the TFn main pages - thats why the boards often crash, while TFn is still there).

    I'm sure it'll all be over in the minute.

    As for MF.com - they just moved servers, despite what rumours you might have heard ;)

    Completely different server farms within IGN.

    Could be any number of reasons for why the site is down from simple problems with the servers, to switching between different sets, to alterations that require taking the entire site down for a short period, etc.

    Basically, don't worry unless it's still down this time tomorrow.

    Ah, thanks. Actually, don't think I'd ever seen that site before.

    If we're ruminating and suggesting dire things for TheForce.net, had they posted anything lately that may have annoyed LFL? I don't recall anything, so it seems unlikely that they would have been "shut down". Seems like a tech problem is the most likely culprit.

    Same problem here...

    It would be funny if TF.N we're taken down and MF.com weren't...or would it? :p

    since I already have a thread here I suppose I can just post the other problem I just had with [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Your_Jedi_Council_Community/b10008/16773043/p2/?40]this thread[/link]


    there is no post reply button or anything like that on page 2.


    glitch, or what?

    for me, it's back but the links on the left side of the page aren't there.

    EDIT: totally back now.

    EDIT2: nevermind the link I had.

    Obviously, we're all having the same problem and there's nothing we can do about it until whatever's being done is over.

    Is this still a problem?

    Anyhow, Zerosleep and/or IGN is/are in the middle of another round of updates (hence the changes to signatures). That's probably the reason for wonky behavior.
