Zero point in ever doing that again.
The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
I may not believe in what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it

Yeah, it was probably more trouble than it was worth--though it did help sustain site loyalty and morale, and the value of that can't be understated. It's reassuring to check in and see that the admins are still alive and kicking, and not in some prison in Narnia, lol

Maybe next time, a simple page with a very brief daily update might work just as well?

Wow great job guys! I did not expect to see this until after the new year! Now everyone can relax and spend some time with family and friends. The temp forum was a good place for troll zombies and gave hope to others.

Just out of curiosity, is it possible to have a backup domain on reserve

...or do most companies only lease one out if it's going to be used immediately and actively?


(I ask because a lot of offline businesses have a backup facility (with barebones equipment/records) so if they're hit by an earthquake or Godzilla or something, their operations have barely any disruption. I wasn't sure if any similar options were feasible for online-only organizations.)

Possibly, but you cannot imagine how complex this Website is. And it takes an inordinate amount of hardware. I will bring it before the Ice Gods though.

Thanks...the idea's been rolling around in the back of my head for a while. I generally like to think of ways to keep things running efficiently...it's both a fun puzzle and instinctive reflex for me, lol. I was hesitant to mention anything here though because I was afraid it might be misinterpreted as harsh criticism. With some people, you could casually be like, "hey I have a weird idea..." and they'd snap back, "JUST WHO THE @#%$ DO YOU THINK YOU ARE!!!". It's just hard to tell sometimes, lol
