    ...Serebii.net is no more.

    The server it was on, for lack of a better term, exploded and we lost all the data on it.

    Luckily, I have the entire site backed up but its going to be a few days before the site is back up, alive and kicking....I have to reupload it from scratch which isnt a fun thing to do considering the size of the site.

    Hopefully this wont adversely affect anything, it should be fully up, however I do warn, the last couple of times this has happened I have lost several sections of the site, hopefully I wont this time but no promises.

    Will keep you aprised

    That explains why I couldn't get onto it earlier... ouch.

    But the forums are OK, right? Well, I mean will they be.


    dang, that bites. I was just about to check up on it. well, let's hope that it can be fixed or rehosted without too much of a dent in it.

    Well, that would explain why I couldn't get onto it earlier. Oh well, here's to a great website...and Joe, good luck with the next incarnation.

    Right. But still, ouch, that's pretty bad to lose the main site, even though I barely go on it.

    Ya me too, I thought it was my internet. This had to happen today of all days didnt it? At least the forums are OK and I hope the site will be too when you get it back up Serebii.

    That's bad.. Well great that you had the sites back-up. The only thing what was strange/or a bit funny imo: that something bad happened on this day, (meaning the numbers). Because nothing bad hasn't happened here in Finland today 0.0.

    JoshYEAH ???

    Joe fell victim to 666 hax. The devil is coming for you Joe. Flee.


    Gutted about the site, just when I started going back on for the 'dex as well. Oh well :(

    so thats why when I tryed to get on the site it instntly said "page cannot be displayed" I thought it was my cruddy internet sevice.
  14. Omega Pirate

    Omega Pirate shove it up ya bum!

    Whoo, that first sentence scared the sh*t outta me!

    Hopefully you don't lose anything.

    No wonder I can't get on it.

    I hope this isn't another prank like April Fools...this seems too coincidental, y'know, on the 'death day' (sorry for being superstisious but I just can't help it).

    Well regardless, I hope the site gets back up soon enough.

    Na its not a prank...its just the gods hate me


    sheesh, guys. the date's number is based on a calendar system developed less than 2000 years ago by normal men... neither God nor the Devil chooses doom day based on mortal-made calendars, people. and this? coincidence. THERE IS SUCH A THING AS COINCIDENCE![/rant]

    sorry 'bout that, Joe.

    I figured the site went down or something. It took me five minutes to realize that the forum is independent of the main site. Good luck to the repairman.

    Atoyont Brains for brawn

    You hit the nail on the head, The Benmeister. This is, quite obviously, another prank like the April Fool's absense of Avatars and Signatures. The title of the thread gives it away, too.
  20. Jetx

    Jetx hooray, it's Jetx!

    Ouch... Good luck on re-uploading everything...

    PS: T Lord, I don't think you have much experience as a webmaster, do you? Because server errors do happen and I doubt Serebii would lie about it.
