Old Scratch's website down?

Postby PJ_Maybe » Wednesday February 13th, 2019 9:10am

Hi everyone, apologies if this is the wrong forum for it but would anyone know what has happened to Old Scratch's HeroQuest Forum? It is displaying a server error 500 message. I don't know whether it has gone for good (which would be a shame) or whether there is a temporary fault?

I hadn't been there in a while, but it would be a shame to lose all of that history.

Old Scratch goes on and off intermittently. I'd like to think Biff knows about this, but who knows?

Hi folks.

Yes I've been checking Old Scratch's for a while seems to have been down for quite sometime.

Hopefully not a permanent shut down.

I am afraid also the INN could shut down one day... I see no admin or moderator online since a long time!!

We did have a scare about that earlier this year, but fortunately the Innkeeper drathe was able to be reached by email.
Who else is a mod here? I forget. I think Daedalus is one, not sure about any others.

I'd be happy to take over the website possibly if the owners pass away or something. I did my own website with WordPress, and I imagine it would pay for itself if you ran a few ads. I imagine many who play this game might be in the tech field though so would yield to them. I am not though. I wouldn't be able to monitor the forum as closely though for all the spam to take down and would need admins for that.

Alternatively, I could see it moving to Reddit.

I've made myself scarce lately, not up to much other than some behind-the-scenes maintenance (though I'm working on HQ-25 art.) Shoot a PM and I'll read it. It appears Goblin-King has let-off lately as well, but I wouldn't be surprised should he return to posting one day. Sjeng appears to be too busy with his new game review channel to do more than visit, but we wish him the best.

In response to the drop-off, Thor-in has taken up the mantle of Inn moderator as well. And never doubt that drathe continues to check up infrequently when his schedule allows to attend to the Inn's business.

At he bottom of the forum screens in the last tan field there's a tiny blue link button: The team. That is where anyone can find a listing of the Inn's Administrators and Moderators.
