I made a small fix to the media tag that was breaking HTTPS.. I think it will work from now on.

Everyone's happy now that they're back. But I'm amazed how they can get away with this without any reasonable explanation as to what actually happened.
They might have been hacked, credentials or any other user-related data might have been compromised, but what are they saying? "Uhm, we weren't able to access our servers the past couple days either".
That's shady practice to say the least.

So they finally sent out an e-mail in which they briefly address the recent downtime with the following:
Quote:
The issue was related to some payment issue with our hosting provider AWS which are now being resolved.


So in plain English, did they forget to pay their hosting bill? LOL. I know for certain any host sends out at least 3 e-mails which consists of: actual invoice with at least 7 days to pay, then another one 2-3 days before due date, and then one last one on the day it's due. Depending on host policies, they may keep your server running for a short while in case an invoice is overdue, before shutting it down for good.

So I find it hard to believe they missed out on 3 billing-related e-mails from their hosting provider.
In any case it's poor management to say the least.

I think it has to do with the corporate structure. Marc, who is the CEO is not the owner of the site so many payments have to do with ownership which has been difficult in the past. This may have been caused by that.

Well, if their motives were wrong they could always provide a geeky fictional explanation that would probably make no sense, but they probably didn't get into that.

As for the payment issue, it might have been caused by an automated service failing (etc. recurring payments approval), in a way that they thought they paid for the renewal, but actually failed to.. even with no notification, this could have happened on the provider's side as well.

The fact that they're back, is good nonetheless.. We don't know all the facts and they may have not disclosed details in order to prevent panic. A vague generic explanation usually works better when the audience is quite large and less technical.

I just realized I crossed the 30,000 referral mark at paidverts.  Smiley

Not many are active though which has always been an issue.

Next up: R4A and DLF. If I can get 30K in each of those that will be a much more significant achievement  Grin Money

A good improvement I've just noticed is that the Pure Ads package in PTCShare now grants us 3000 visits at the cost of $1 or 3000 BAPs. Combined with the first Bulk Ad pack we purchase on a month that grants us double (4800) BAPs, it's really beneficial, as we keep our BAP level up while getting ~3500 visits to our link all for just $1 (that we obviously get back if we advertise on DLF Wink ).

I'm not sure if its a permenent thing or temporary but it's a very good VFM purchase!  Smiley

Yes, for $20 you can get 90K hits instead of 60K hits. That is an incredible improvement. I have no reason to pull my money out now.
