Website seems offline. Anyone else noticed? Anyone know why?

You do realize that there's a big thread for the mod portal, right?
Not to mention this has already been discussed there.

I would assume he didn't realize, seeing as how he started this thread asking. But who knows, maybe he just wanted to drive you crazy by taking up some more of that preciously limited space on the internet.  ;)


Lion66six, the thread on this topic is here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,1835.90.html

The mod portal has a history of not functioning correctly and being unreliable. Many have complained about it and most mods use other sources to share their files. It's a shame because I know when I started playing OXC, the mod portal was what really caught my eye showing me a lot of the cool things that could be customized. The forums work well for explanations and discussion, but not as an "advertisement" as older mods will just get buried and mixed in with everything else.

Anyway, "Jo5hua" posted in that thread yesterday that the site was back online, but it doesn't seem to be the case at the moment.

I think you used more than your allotted characters when posting this message. You will need now to refrain from posting anything on the whole internet for the next 48 hours, otherwise the network will crash and send the world into a new Dark Age ;)
