    Hey all! [​IMG]

    If you're here reading this, this doesn't affect you. [​IMG] However, Nifty is reporting that some peeps might not be able to access the forum right now. The server facility that hosts BYC and all of Nifty's other sites (such as our sister sites) is having a connection problem. There are engineers on-site fixing the problem, but Nifty hasn't been told how long the repair will take.

    Interestingly, this problem isn't affecting everyone. If you have friends on Facebook -- or somewhere else online -- who are also BYCers, and they are telling you that they can't access the forum, feel free to pass along this info.

    We hope to have the problem fixed quickly so that everyone can get back to enjoying BYC and our sister sites. Thanks for your patience! [​IMG]

    Quote:ahh the fun times with a hosting companys i love ( [​IMG]) there have been many "fun" times with my site with them [​IMG] but if it is a connection problem it maybe a simple fix (as in 1-2 or less hours) although it may be a more complected one
