openxcom.com is unreachable (error 523).
Checked from many locations worldwide - all the same.

Confirmed. I think it's been dead for 24 hours at least.

Hello, yesterday I tried to go onto the mod site and I couldn't go onto it. I asked other people I know in other states and they could not go onto the site ether.

Fucking CloudFlare!

Please get rid of this 'service' - it's doing more harm than good by blocking entire IP ranges for no apparent reasons.

I am kinda surprised there was no other thread about the mod portal being down. It has been like this for like two days.

Yeah, it has been discussed in different threads and in the irc chat, but not in its own thread.

Cheers, Ivan :D

I was going to start a thread about it when I noticed this one  ::)

Anybody know what the deal is? Who owns the site, anyway?

I was hoping it was temporary.  I have been like a junkie combing the forum for the mods that people posted links to so I can get my mod fix.

Just so you guys know, we don't actually run that server, it's a fan-made site, and there's not much we can do about it. you need to get in contact with Jo5hua, not us.

Yeah, I wrote him on Skype a couple days ago, but there's no answer. We must be patient.

So.. We must all individually contact him to enable our IPs? Or is it a global problem where once it is fixed, it will be for everyone?

Hi, I'm new to the site; I recalled reading about the OpenXcom project a while ago and was surprised to find that it had passed 1.0. I bought the copy of the game through Steam a while ago but, needless to say, I am excited about this Open version, both for all of the expanded features and the access to mods. I went to download the game, presumably from the downloads tab, and received the same error as for the mods download page, so I am not sure as to how to get the game; I understand that the mods server is down, but does that server also host the main download? Or am I just misunderstanding the structure? Thanks for any help.
