Yeah, David dropped some Black Goo on our server and the Engineers got fried... LOL

In actuality though we did experience some server issues and I was online with our support team for the better portion of 12 hours working to resolve the issues. Took us a while but we finally broke through and have since stabilized everything. Site should run smoothly now. Sometimes though, outages like that do occur for a number of different reasons.

Thank you Chris for your time and money spent on the issue.

We owe quite a bit of gratitude from our enjoyment due to your team's investment in this site.

Thanks for getting it back up and running.

No problem guys! Thank you all for your patience. We've experienced outages throughout our lifetime as a network but yesterday was one of the more puzzling ones for sure. Likely won't be the last issue we encounter, but with every new problem we learn a little more. Happy to have things back up and running! And just in time for the unveiling of our Animated Series episode 2, which will be online very soon ;)

I messaged SciFied on their facebook page and they said they were under a DDoS attack >_< . Glad they recovered and I can't help wishing a minor catastrophe on the person or persons responsible.

Ash: There is an explanation for this, you know.

Well, now I feel even less bad about his demise. Though, Ripley shouldn't have disconnected him before letting Parker incinerate him.

VivisectedEngineer read Alien: Out of the Shadows to truly get my reference/joke ;-)



Aug-29-2017 3:23 PM


OOooh! Thanks for the reminder, that's still very much on my to do list!


Aug-29-2017 4:16 PM

Lol Thought it just may have been my phone,then I got messages about my account being deleted???Then I realized the site was just down.

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for 


Aug-29-2017 4:23 PM

After VivisectedEngineer mentioned the Sciefied FB post, I read a bit about those attacks. Sounds like spam on steroids.


Aug-29-2017 4:31 PM

So we're crew expandable?

ninXeno426 hahah that work's too!

My reference was to him was more directed to his involvement in Alien: Out of the Shadows novel.

in the book Ash apparently managed to upload his AI into the Narcissus shuttle's OS before they killed his body, then onto the Marion Mining ship.

He basically trolled Ripley and co. the whole book lol

Still seems weird. I will get the 502 message with the first image with more than 90 members present. I log out and come back in and see around 60 members in less than a minute.


Aug-29-2017 10:31 PM

dk Do you see people from the UK? Where is bigdave? Maybe some servers are still down. You should create a thread asking people where there are based so we'll find out who is not with us.


Aug-29-2017 10:43 PM

joylitt Good idea.Will do. Although it would fall on deaf ears for those whom have no connesctions. I will give it a shot. Assistance would be appreciated since this sort of a member driven effort.


Aug-29-2017 10:50 PM

dk Precisely. Not having a response from people with no connections will help us identify them.


Aug-29-2017 10:52 PM

For now Australia and the US are giving signs of activity. 


Aug-29-2017 10:54 PM

joylitt Thread started. Some members just don't check in for whatever reasons at times. I can only check members' last posts- all members have that access too.

I also got the "account suspended" message and I nearly cried, lol! I was like "What'd I do!??"

Yeah, Chris, thank you very much for your service to our franchise. It's very much appreciated even by myself the ac negative Nancy. My bank card network took the night off so I chased around the hwy in the rain to no avail. Sometimes digitally/internetly it's just not your day.

Phew! I almost got a bit of abstinence symptom (sweating, puking or what the F). ;)


OK maybe that is an exaggeration but he he.


It is good to have the forum back.
