It started with some dreamhost (?) certificate error around Sunday, now I get the first page, but the forum is still gone :/. Let´s hope someone is working on it and that there is a proper backup.

It's several months behind, and is fairly substantial. Several times in the past when this has happened, I've bailed it out, with promises that I'd be repaid. As this has never happened, and the owner has stopped responding to my messages, I'm not inclined to bail it out again. Note: if you are a patreon backer, it's probably time to cancel your payment - it's not going to the right place apparently. Backups of the site exist, and fresh ones are being made. so hopefully the site will be back up in some form, maybe soon, maybe not so soon.
In the meantime, go and make some great music! That's what this is all about! (not the shutdown, you know what I mean)
Not looking good. Hopefully it wil be back with a new fresh forum software 'cause phpBB is getting really old.

They could do with removing personal attacks from people's comments too. Apprently the mods there don't have access to the PM system so some abuse goes on via PM that they can't/ won't do anything about...

It is/was a better forum than GS because no ads at all and no corporate sponsors.

just one of the quirks with using MW... It always gets resolved. I hope everyone just cancels their Patreon and they can setup a new one for synthcube or whomever keeps paying the bills!

Trying to keep it alive makes no sense. Provenance is a huge question mark, and someone with clout should make a new one and archive the old one so that it's searchable but not postable.

That looks like the message one of the mods posted around the time of Mikes passing.

On this Reddit thread https://fr.reddit.com/r/modular/comm...in_21_07_2019/ Muff moderator sduck said that the site got locked when the bill wasn't paid in time but was paid in a matter of hours but the hosting company screwed up something so a full restore was requested but that didn't work either for some reason so the techs are still working on it.

Another Reddit user mentioned that during July a high number of snapshots (see attached images, up to 24 per day!) were taken by the Internet Archive so you can use the Wayback Machine to browse many past discussions, with of course the limitations inherent in using the archive. (no images, dead/missing links, etc)

I'm sorry if this is insensitive to say, but Mike's gone. Maybe it's time we let his ghost die?

It's not about Mike at this point. He was practically gone from the site years ago. It's a huge forum and treasure trove of information and it will be atrocious if it just disappeared.


What comes up now is

YOU CLICKED A BAD LINK - NOTHING HERE!
Click on the pics to return to the store or the forum....
Have fun!
with missing images underneath. This is not a good sign. The "store" was shut down ages ago.... I wonder if anyone other than Mike took the Patreon money and who has full admin access...

He requested his daughter to maintain muffs, she is obviously still grieving and probably learning as she goes. I would of thought the other moderators would help her out

Ok, in that hour, since I last posted, I was able to get some misc. CNC work done while finishing a video piece from the video synth.

Not bad. I hate being this productive!

If Muffs distracts you such that you don't make music, please exercise some self-discipline.

Why would anyone say to let Muffs go? Such a great site with great info. The BST is great too. Keep it the same as it’s always been!!! No change needed at all.

Indeed. If Muffs distracts you from making music then I’d question what your passion truly is.
