Default Frequent Outages at UA

So, is the problem fixed?
Is this site short staffed?

Many times, This site has answered my UT questions without my having to ask.
A large amount of players & admins would like to see this site stay alive.
There are many of us who are capable and willing to help in any way possible.

UA is a valuable resource and I, for one, am offering my assistance.

If the UA team is overworked, overwhelmed or seriously doesn't care about this forum, PLEASE ASK.

Word.

If you need equipment, money, whatever just say so. Don't let UA pass away because of apathy. There are those of us left that will pick up the torch.

Just to inform the guy who's keeping care of the site atm (many thanks from me!), you get a database error on the privatemessage page.

perhaps move the file downloads to somewhere else.

would keep it running for a few more years at least.

In the meantime maybe we could start an unreal site for free at Stackexchange. If interested please let me know and I'll create a proposal.

I can host the file downloads if I am given access/permission to transfer them to any of my boxes. They are all on 100mb port switches. I'm also willing to host this site on my dedi and I'd take no ownership of any of the website, adds can stay etc.

Additionally a special server admin section could be added to the Unreal Engine Games section of BUF to collect all relevant forum threads.

Code:
Name Server:NS3.MULTIPLAY.CO.UK
Name Server:NS0.MULTIPLAY.CO.UK
Just looking at the NS (NameServers) Letty , assuming that the website is most likely to be hosted by Multiplay.

will see next few days , if we get any bites.



azazel was very clever when setting this place up ,in making sure that his personal details were not on the registrant details as you can see above.

however I reckon I could find him (assume he's a guy for the time being) with a little bit of digging.



MSULL you got Azazel's details mate?

http://www.ut-slv.com/forum/viewtopi...p=88520#p88520

also may still hang out :

This site is hosted by multiplay. It's why there are multiplay ads here.

Anyway from what I have been told, UA would
be far too much for a shared hosting service. Apparty the bandwidth pulled and the website itself is hosted on 3-4 dedicated boxes alone.....

Again, if I am granted permission I'd host the downloads / take a backup to make sure the don't all disappear. In fact I'm sure skills would too.

personally i think , AZAZEL should have the Ultimate say

if/when we find him

but I would also like to help to keep this place alive for another 10 years.. there are a lot of good people here and shit-loads of content.

<_< don't IRC much .. but guessing he still does and or someone has his other email address hehe.

If we don't back up UA it's going to not come back after one of these episodes and that would be a terrible loss.

What's going on now isn't working and those "in charge" of the background management would do those of us remaining in UT a huge favor by allowing us to assume control in some way. Who better to do it than those left?

There has been discussion of moving posts and ideas to other sites like wiki but ultimately I think that will fail due to lack of time. Most all the people left developing and admining I know directly or indirectly. To a player they have outside jobs, commitments, kids, lives. Asking more of them will only drive them away or create more apathy.

The only solution I could possibly see working is for MP to allow someone else to assume ownership that would keep things going. I've contacted them about what sort of financial obligation this site has and if I can make that problem go away. If they would just allow someone else to run things on a temporary basis to prove they are up for the job, then I think the problem would be solved. Moving the forum/files/news/sub-sites would be a terrible idea and is a last-ditch solution. Every effort should be made to keep UA where it is but people are going to have to seriously step up and work this out, otherwise it's going to go away.

If you think it won't, look at the many 'solid' UT sites that have dropped away already.

None of the active admins have full access to the database. If we did, then naturally we would've made a backup already. Azazel is responsible for ua.org but he's extremely busy. Several people, including myself, have undoubtedly mailed him already to discuss the situation. For our community, the best option would be to donate money/hardware to mpuk so they can keep the website online. That is of course assuming that there is indeed a hardware problem. Relocating ua.org to another host does not seem like a good option. As far as I know, keeping ua.org running costs a small fortune. Not only is it a very bandwidth-hungry domain, it also runs vbulletin/vbportal. I'm not sure about the current prices but a couple of years ago, vbportal+vbbulletin cost a couple of hundred euros in licensing and maintenance costs per year.
