Sequart.org Down

Sequart.org has experienced a loss of service due to a server-related issue. Our webhost migrated the site from one server to another, and it turned out that the complex site simply didn't work on the new server. So they shut us down... and will soon be shutting off the old server completely.

We are working nonstop to resolve the situation, but it doesn't look like it's going to more than a few days. We will most likely have to recode the entire site to one degree or another, since it was designed for a server that's being shut down.

We were all very shocked at this news, as we'd been assured that the server migration wouldn't cause many problems. It happened today, suddenly leaving us with only painful options. The most feasible one would seem to be simply moving to a different webhost.

On the upside, when we return, we'll probably be able to see the return of some features that were discontinued on the old server (such as comments and the database section). After all, if we're recoding anyway, we might as well revamp those aspects and make them work in the new environment.

So please bear with us... and rest assured that everything else has been dropped until we resolve this situation. We're dealing with this too, though we didn't want to be, and we're working hard to make sure that it turns out for the best, at least in the long run.
