What happened to Bassworld?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by The Mock Turtle Regulator, Nov 20, 2004.


  1. the Uk Bassworld forum has been offline for quite a while now-
    anyone know what's up with it?

    seems like every so often when everything's going well on that site it disappears for some reason.....

    Subject: RE: Site Down



    All the servers that I have all my sites on has been seized by the FBI at
    the moment! Apparently my host has been hosting terrorist sites!!! I cant do anythin about it until the servers are returned with all the bassworld info.

    Unfortunatley bassworld is Database driven and cant be backed up so I just
    hope that when it comes back it still works. Its a real nightmare atm. I
    dont have any email addresses for people as the whole site is admined
    online. Laos i cant as yet even ad a page to let people know whats going on.

    Take a look at www.pachost.net for more info.
    If you could let anyone from the site you know about this it would be much
    appreciated!

    Regards,

    I'm a big bassworld user being based in the UK and from mails I'm getting from other members (including the one already posted here) it looks like we might be off for a while.

    Please keep checking back - meanwhile I reckon you might get one or two of us visiting these parts a bit more often

  7. thanks for the info.

    BTW my username was SJA on there.

    ah, well, there goes all those discussions....

    the UK Bassworlders will have to tone down the cor blimey Englishness on here though:p
     
  8. yeah, it's a damn shame about BW, we've deffinitly had our fair share of bad luck server wise, here's hoping when it comes back all the old threads are still on there...
