Well.. as you can see we are back!! ..and to be clear it was not YOUR account they were talking about. They suspended OUR account, meaning our web hosts suspended this site. :kz:

Why did our site end up looking like we were spammers and hackers? Thanks to our hosting company, something in their auto alerts went off on our site and suspended us. Even after looking at the logs, they could not figure out why it happened and finally re-enabled us.

Sad part is it took nearly 7 hours for them to ok us and put us back on the grid. Probably because we were guilty until proven innocent.

Anyway.. so sorry, but it is what it is.

I'm glad the site came back =)

I was getting a bit worried even though I have been through this before with other forums.

Good to have the site back up! Hopefully it is not bound for it to happen again.

Thank god! As soon as I updated the Japanese thread it went down. Rock was even calming me down because I thought it was my fault. :blush:

I made a post on the discontinued thread where I said
I would pay good money to buy someones account or gameshare but that's against the rules (and probably illegal)

I though you might have misunderstood and banned my account.

Just in case I had emphasis on would because I don't gameshare but I would make an exception for those pack, IF it was within the rules. I don't support gamesharing as it's a form of theft, but you can't really steal something that doesn't exist, right?

Still against site rules and now off topic. Lol

I figured it was either a site problem or you folks were REALLY good at tracking me down.

I knew it was a server problem because this site has tons of them and also because I know you can see the header when you're banned, you just get a message saying you can't access the site and the moderator reason why. :kz:

At first I thought Id let some illicit information slip... but then I cleared my cookies and changed my ip and still couldn't view the sight so I figured someone forgot to pay the bill...

No need to... we didn't do anything wrong. Plus the logs that show their software suspending our site was in their VM space, not our container.

So there... :p

If it happens again send them a link to the donations page and cough awkwardly

That is what really bugs me about them. No real apology. ..them just telling me they couldn't find anything and they finally removed the suspension. At least they gave me a link in case it happens again. ...but now that I think of it, not sure what that link really does. lol

Again I suspect they were updating rules and such and it started handing out false positives. Wish we could afford our own hosted server or private server, but oh well... you get what you pay for. lol

Its a shame we couldn't get sponsorship from Sony... after all, we are essentially a massive advertisement for one of their flagship franchises

True, but kinda cool being independent. ...and besides, they have their own forums.

We'd probably have to pick up their rules and let them sorta run the site too if this site had official sponsorship.
