    I'm not actively following this thread, but some folks over at OldUnreal.com discovered that BeyondUnreal has some serious database problems, including the Liandri Archives, Unreal Wiki and the contact page.

    When an administrator reads this: Please check your database server or the connection between the website and it. You don't need to do it for me personally as I haven't visited it for months but you may want to do it for your site and the active users. ;)

    Also can you entrust the wiki to a couple of other sites so they can mirror it? There's so goddamn much good information in it and it's seriously frustrating to have to use Google cached to see the pages all the time.

    I've sent a link to this thread to Hal over Discord. Brizz and Hal seem to be ignoring all my attempts to contact them so don't get your hopes up.

    Is there a way I could get each "raw" wiki web page from the Unreal Wiki unaltered except a comment entry added to each page a the top of the code so you know the url of the page like this:
    <!--https://wiki.beyondunreal.com/Legacy:Assault_Mapping_Tutorial -->
    for example (which is easier to rebuild the links later) without the images if the page has them as I can download them at a later date as I rebuild the pages offline?Could be used for a new version of the offline copy of the Unreal Wiki.

    Would be easier than having to manually download each page as that is taking too long... :(

    Thanks.

    Sorry, guys. I know this keeps happening. The best short term solution is to just Discord notice me when it's happening so I can fix it. I am planning to move the site to a machine with more ram in the next couple of weeks when I have some free time.

    Everything's dead again at the moment. Only the frontpage and forums seem to be running, Liandri Archives is down as well as the husk of what was once NC.

    Brizz is aware of the current state. Still having RAM problems. I think it may be best if he would post an offline archive and let us share that since so few people are active now anyway.

    And we know why that is.

    That "Ignored Member" has basically killed what's left of these forums.

    It's a shame but since we can't get rid of him............
