Here's Proboard's server status page with lots of red lights:

There's also a link with the latest news about this outage. It looks like they are going to replace Planet's servers with new ones on different location and restore from backup data. I hope they do this properly, otherwise a lot of useful research and analysis could be lost.

It will take them up to 3 days to add those incremental backups
from end april till end may.
Which means anything posted in those 3 days that it takes them, can get lost...

Temporary board given to all the owners pending the restoration :

Sometimes it is best not to make real power mad.  Maybe we here at L E V I A T H A N should just be skeptical.

We at L E V I A T H A N were banned from the UFO Casebook Forum and it is so sad.

Hope UFO Casebook and Alien Casebook return to the net soon.  Good honest forums these be.
