FA is down again

i think this is the begging of the end of that site as it's getting on it's last legs.

It is just a server problem, nothing really big.

Who knows, may just be them using the 'crash' to say some art got corrupted and remove it. They are moving in on Sonic art now.

They lost a HDD in their RAID array and the RAID board had a firmware bug. All they lost is a system table that should be easily restorable; the database on that array is backed-up and safe. They need to set-up some configuration and they'll be back, barring further problems.

Sorry, Mako. Reports of FA's death have been greatly exaggerated.

the little voice in my head that represents pessimistic paranoia is thinking that even if the report is real, they may use it as a cover to make changes to what is on the site. It just seems odd that after and admin goes hunting and removing Sonic pictures that the site goes down due to a glitch and that the database array is losing a drive. Who knows if they are taking the time to remove some files from the database while getting the files transferred. I'm playing the conspiracy theorist here, but just think about it, they could do it, and we'd never know if it was due to 'file corruption' or actually corrupted and needed to be removed. You want to hide something, have a crash and remove it saying it was glitched and could not be recovered.

Well, you could go check now. FA is back on line, but in read-only mode. What seems to be working is access to your own page and other user pages, plus anything that's in your own gallery and journals or anybody else's gallery and journals if you can get to them. Watch lists and watched-by lists are also up. You can't upload or post journals though, look at most recent submissions or journals from users on your watch list or send PMs and the front page displays some but not all "latest posts." If you're watching somebody who has Sonic pictures posted that they missed, you can confirm whether or not they're still there.

They say they'll have the replacement parts tomorrow.
