I was able to log in and open sub-forum, but it fails when I go to open topics.

I am able to open just the forums, but when searching for new posts or attempting to open any thread I get a failure.

Likewise here.  My suspicion would be on a forum software update, or possibly a server update.

I expect the admins will have had quite a few emails about it already, and will be trying to sort it out...  ;)

Actually, ToSeek messaged me about it (we're Facebook friends), and he's looking into it.  I have to tell you that he suspects there's nothing to be done.

That sounds bad if no one can get on the site.  Might as well shut it down. >:(

You've got to log into it with forum.cosmoquest etc., and it won't remember me, but it's back.  Defunct?  Depends on how you look at it.  I still visit every day, and I have good friends there.  Arguably, there's more activity there than here.

I think the "Conspiracy theories" section doesn't see much activity these days, but the general astronomy and space forums are pretty active.  I'm a regular reader, although I don't post a lot.

Seems down again today. I get the index pages but trying to open a thread I get a basic error message.

It's back.  But I wouldn't be surprised if it's on its last legs, having been abandoned by its owners again.

Who, what, where, when?  Details, please.
