MODS PAGE
« on: March 01, 2015, 11:15:02 pm »
Is there something wrong with the mods section in the openxcom website as every time I've tried to get into it today whether by clicking on the mods link or directly typing openxcom.org/mods my browser is redirecting me to godaddy.com and saying that the renewal license for this expired on 02/28/2015!

is down they need to renew it so is gonna be down for a while until domain comes back. but the site is still online just has a subdomain somewhere . this project is money starved and probably  needs some donations or funds  as right now ppl are working for free and paying website fees from their own pockets.

Cheers, was just wanting to make sure that the problem wasn't on my end. In the meantime if there are any updates/new mods could they be put on the forum as attachments as I seem to mind last year when the mod site was down for several weeks that was the workaround.

nobody is gonna drive all you need to do is donate a few bucks to whoever own the domain probably one of the devs ? to cover their expense. is probably like 20 bucks or so / year and gets cheaper the longer the term. like 3 years is like 30 bucks . but there may be a backdoor using a subdomain

who is joshua dominguez on the site?

also since the domain expired anyone else can buy the domain as is probably not locked. so you can buy it under your name and give it to the devs. if is locked is gonna be available in like a bit of time .  plan B would be to simply make a website change use .org/mods for the mod platform.  i'm just waiting for whoever owns either domains or moderates the site to notice as i have no idea. contact SupSuper or Warboy they should know.

Yes we have no control over the Mod Portal site and domain. You have to reach out to Jo5hua instead.
