The ER Forum Status Line -- For When the Forum Goes Down

Bookmark the following URL:

http://EarlyRetirementStatus.freeforums.org/

If you ever try to access the Early Retirement forum, but can't get on, go to that site to find out what's happening. That is, you'll find out if other people are also having problems.

Hopefully, the administrators of this forum (The Early Retirement Forum) will post a thread there whenever a problem has developed, stating what's wrong and when it might be fixed.

I'm not sure this will work, and I don't want to spend much time administering it, but it could be valuable next time the servers go down.

What do you think?

I just posted your link on the moderators board in case Andy misses your post.

Cool idea.

I registered so I can post updated in the future...

Often times it's the feedback from members that alerts me that things are not running properly. So I would like to ask for help from others to alert me if you have having problems, seeing errors, etc. My email address is andy @ socialknowledge.com. There are various things I can do like restart the web server, repair/optimize the database or restart MySQL. It's often one of these that will resolve 95% of the issues.

Also, if the site is totally down and you have not heard from me, please email me at andy @ socialknowledge.com. Often if there is a major emergency going on I am focused on getting it fixed so it's good to email me for a response. I will likely ask you to "pass it on" so the other can be informed.

It's a great idea. Would a simple HTML page or blog work, or is a whole other BBS required for this purpose?

A page would work for announcements from Andy, but not for problem reports from users (not without programming). The forum only took me 30 minutes to set up, is free, and has no ads.
