    What in the world is Rangerboard?

    And I'm pretty sure this (potentially) violates Rule 14.

    Rangerboard's host, according to Decade, has suspended the Rangerboard account temporarily for ongoing denial of service attacks.

    If you were banned, you'd still be directed to the actual Rangerboard site, just not able to log on.

    Basically what the host is doing, denying service. But with the host doing it, it's being controlled by them, until the source of the attacks can be found.

    This isn't so much a rule violation because it's not a promotion of another website, it's more of a simple question regarding the status of another fandom's popular (if not #1) message forum - RangerBoard.com (Power Rangers/Sentai/Kamen Rider).

    I'm a member there, have been for 7 years. Not the best place in terms of moderation, there's a lot of "seniority rules" type of members and moderators there, so valid questions or complaints are either ignored or beaten down with infractions, and if your post isn't found to be intelligent or on the popular opinion side of things, you'll be ridiculed and possibly infracted for spam.

    But a fun place none the less ;)

    Their webhost has been attacked constantly the last few days, it's not your account. It's the board owner's hosting that's being "suspended".

    If you've been there for seven years, you'd know that the site is working on improving. Mods are much more nicer these days and aren't so quick to ban others.

    Granted, it's still very cliquey, and will always be. I've yet been to a forum where it isn't.

    But to pop in a thread just to bad mouth a site, is that really necessary?

    i feel wrath in the atmosphere.

    the only rule in question here concerns importing drama in from other sites.

    but to ask the status of a site seems okay.

    So, anyone know why i can't log in to CopRockshouldntbecanceled.com?

    Well, I can't say it over there ... they'd ban me for it :)  I still post there daily though, and will continue to do so.

    And to think, we almost (and I mean ALMOST) launched our own Power Rangers/Sentai forum/site ... I still occassionaly fight for it. ;) 

    Anyways, their site is back up on a new host, so this thread has served it's purpose. Find me if you can ;)
