Sorry about the downtime, O/S update and conflicts resulted in ports not opening...

Oh and Happy Lunar New Years.

I'm just glad you're back online! I was afraid that my favourite community is gone (^^)"

Thank the lord you're back! I thought you got DDOS'd instead of something like that!

Good day to you cultured people.

I wanted to ask if there are a twitter or another way of following K1, in case something happens with the site. I'd hate to lose one of my all time favorite LN community sites :)

Given how sensitive the topics of this forum can be, it's probably not a good idea to have something like twitter...

I know that it's a bad post, but I always come in to read.

So what about an automatic email message saying something like:
"K1 is under maintenance, please wait for a while"
"K1 servers are down for the moment, please wait for a while'
"K1 servers are dead and is possible that may not be turned on again. Wait for a few days. If we are not back in at least a month, i'm sorry to inform you that K1 will be shuting down for ever."

Wait, i got an even better idea:
1) Kureha or another admin who can check the state of the server creates a Google classroom in here: https://classroom.google.com
Because, Kureha-sensei, thats why.
2) Whoever creates the classroom, creates a thread called: "Checking confirmation if K1 is down" and publishes a password that will be ramdom generated when you create the classroom. People with a google account can login in the google classroom page, input the password and they will automatically join the classroom.
3) Now, Kureha or the admins can post whenever there is a problem or even use it like a "Private" twitter account, but without getting to much unwanted attention as an actual twitter account. The only issue is that people who join the classroom can publish whatever they want too, but i think that the classroom admin can delete unwanted posts.

Emails won't work, the activation emails are being dropped/blocked left and right.
K1 has a maintenance mode, which is almost never used, unless Kureha is trying to do something on the backend.
There is only 1 admin, and Kureha does not have the time to invest more into what is effectively a money sink.
The best way to check if the server is alive or not is to actually visit the defunct portal page, which is a static HTML page that will work as long as the server is on and has an internet connection, even if the forums go down, that page would be still up.

If you really, really want a way via twitter, you could follow and privately msg

. Don't expect tweets regarding the forum on there though.
