I just found out that it's down and it's down for everyone. I checked it on this site.

Wonder what's going on?

Can one of the Exede mods please let us know what's going on with the site? Is it down for maintenance?

You would think that a mod would at least let people know what's going on with the forum, whether it's maintenance or closing it.

Yes, I hear the crickets too!

I think it may be a DDOS attack. I remember last August it was down for a weekend and came back Monday.

Some time back I was chastised by one of the mods for sending folks to WildblueWorld and giving my opinion about its superiority. That mod told me WildblueWorld would eventually be going away. A few days later another mod told me there were no plans to take the other forum down. So - who do you believe? I sure hope it comes back as it is much more useful and easier to use than this one.

Bring back wildblueworld, there is absolutely no satisfaction in this hard to follow forum.  I still hear crickets.

The Wildblueworld forum isn't going away.  I don't believe it is monitored 7/24, so most likely it won't be till Monday when people get back to work that it will magically reappear good as new.

I hope it isn't going away...much better feedback on that forum.  Lots of old pros around who give real answers...not just "...email to exedelistens@..." with no resolution visible to the forum.  Only reason I'm here is to find out anything I can about the Wildblueworld/forum status.

The UI and layout of this site is terrible and that's the main reason why I prefer wildblueworld. And like Segue stated it also has a lot of knowledgeable folks that can help with problems.

Well the sun is up on monday morning and there is still no answer .  Does viasat really listen, or is the missing forum,  part of the promise of big" changes at exede"?

The sun isn't up yet in Carlsbad. It is up in Denver, where the folks who run the site work, but it's still before before work hours so there's still a bit of time left ;-)

Monitoring this thread too... would be a shame to lose the old forums... like 4me said though, they've been down before and came back up without issue...

Sorry about that. Server needed a reboot. Should be good to go now.
