Hello, SHHFers,

As you may have noticed we've been experiencing significant downtime recently, with severe problems with the VPS SHHF is hosted on. Latest server host has been, ahem, challenging, so I'm moving (again).

Migration should happen sometimes over the next 12-48 hours. Soon as it's all done, I'll let you know, but be prepared for redirects/offline messages/broken links until all DNS has propagated and everything settles down.

The costs of running this place continue to increase (it's not the bandwidth so much anymore as much as it is the SPACE we need to hold almost 15 years of Silent Hill debate), and there are very, very few live cult members anymore. I know forums are a dying platform since the arrival of FB etc., but I'd hate to close this place down, so if you have some spare change kicking about, please please consider donating. Every little bit helps.

<3

Migration is done. DNS may jump between the two servers until it's settled down, but everything should be okay after tomorrow.

If anyone's still receiving issues/errors from tomorrow, please let me know.

Thanks.

Thanks for the heads up, Vixx! Forum's working fine for me. We appreciate you keeping the place up and running all these years. <3
I could probably donate a little when I get paid later this week.
Your mention of the cult subscriptions reminds me: I'm pretty sure it's been more than a year since the last time I paid to renew, but I seem to still be an active cult member. Not sure what's up! But I would pay to renew again. Just give me a heads up if I'm due.

Nah, it's not active. All memberships have to be manually added/deleted, so it's just a matter of me finding the time to remove it. :P My bad, not yours.

Thanks for the kind words. <3
