:? I've been trying to get on to Shareforce for a week now, and all I get is a blank page, is the site down?

I am currently looking into the issues with ShareForce ... unfortunately, work is getting in the way a little, with a lot of travelling. Just back from Dublin this evening, and am not on the road again for a couple of days, so should be able to give it a bit more attention.

The 'scripts' that the host refers to, are likely to be issues with content in the back-end database (some corrupted data) which I am attempting to resolve.

Dear all

Unfortunately grunth0s and myself are buried deep in real life work commitments, as mentioned previously personally by me to some of you via PM's etc. it will be back as soon as practicable, apologies for the delay.

A quick update ...

Been out and about around the country (and out of it) this week. So not really had much time. However, I have spent most of my free time trying to resurrect the site database, but am struggling to get a bunch of the tables to load correctly (basically something went horribly wrong on the database side).

Problem isn't restricted to the 'live' database, the backups are also exhibiting the same issue.

At this moment, I am looking at trying to restore the user and posts tables, and probably going to re-build from scratch (keeping the users and posts, but not necessarily linked to each other).

Again, apologies for the extended outage ... not anything to do with the site itself, or administration of the site, but more to do with the hosting company (which aren't any use at all).

Feel free to PM me if you want a more technical description (or, if you're a 'really good' MySQL guru and want to offer some advise)

Dear all

The new site is ready to go back up and has been for the last four weeks but due to no help offered on the emule link code that will work with with phpBB 3.1.3 although we have reached out for assistance not one reply has been received back.

Many thanks for your replies all

cookie_lu, the emule mod and phpBB 3.1.3 are not compatible.

Sexy, why not change your board from a phpbb? Just a thought.

Has it totally gone now, or is it just my browsers that won't let me access it?

Dear all, a decision had to be made inline with the renewal time for hosting ShareForce, due to the lack of posts and traffic on the site I had no option but to close the site rather than incur costs that would not benefit the ed2k community.

It was a brilliant 10 year and I personally thank you all for your participation.
