A Finnish online military history forum in trouble

Post by Juha Tompuri » 04 Aug 2017 13:00

Hi!

The Finnish military history forum of the Pohjois-Kymenlaakson asehistoriallinen yhdistys ry. http://www.pkymasehist.fi/ has been mostly down for some four days. The webmaster there is solving the problem, and I believe it will be fully operational in very near future.

Is there a problem in the forum or just "run out of fuel". It has been pretty quiet for a long time.

The particular from seems to have some sort of technical issue, which have been there unrepaired for quite some time. I tried posting something new there maybe in late February and it turned out be impossible. I just tested posting there again and got exactly the same error messages.

Could be that the forum run into technical problem and the person(s) responsible for running it decided that measures needed for fixing it were not worth it considering how quiet the forum has become. IMO it is a shame, since while the forum was quiet there still was apparently still a decent crowd with huge amount of knowledge browsing it regularily.

I contacted webmaster as soon I noticed I coulnd't post there anymore - couple of months ago.
He replied me that the problem is a big one and fixing it would take some time.
After that I have also contacted other members of that club, mentioning that their forum is not working anymore.
As this much time has passed, and nothing has happened, I'm boecoming to be a bit sceptical about the future of that site.

Regards, Juha

They told me that they will try to fix it (update) this month.
Another possibility is tat they leave as it is, and start a new forum.
