Question Extended downtime recently?

The main wiki has been offline for several hours today. What's going on with it?

EDIT: Okay, it appears to be back for now. Unless it goes down again soon, then a moderator can delete this thread.

Do any of the moderators/admins here have direct physical access to Bunni? I'm asking because it's not uncommon for people to go "dark" (disconnect themselves from any means of electronic contact) for a long time. It would be a real shame if Bunni went dark and the wiki was lost due to payment issues, or the server company being bought out, etc. Years of work from various users would be lost overnight, perhaps irretrievably.

If someone among the higher-ups did have reliable access to Bunni at least s/he could give us fair warning to backup everything if Bunni no longer wanted to keep the wiki up and running.

At least one of us should be able to call him and yell at him at all hours of the day, until he does what we want

I didn't mean to go that far. I just wanted to make sure that, if Bunni won't personally make regular announcements and updates in case things go badly wrong, someone can at least make sure everything is okay on his end. Like I said, it would be a real shame if the wiki suddenly went offline for no apparent reason and couldn't be brought back.

Nope, at least one mod/admin needs to be able to call him at 3 in the morning to scream "SHIT DON'T WORK FIX ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT"

It would help, at the very least, if Bunni could be reliably notified in a timely fashion of site malfunctions or malicious activity directed at the site, and someone was close enough to confirm that Bunni received it. No screaming necessary, just confirmation that he knows what's going on and is working on it.

Oh dear, it looks like it's happening again. We can't access Bunni's talk page when the wiki is down, either.

Looks like we're down again.

And we're up again.
