DNS Issue Fixed

The DNS issue has been fixed but may take up to 24 hours to reach through the web.

If you modified your Hosts file with the fix to gain access to the site, it is recommended that you remove it as soon as all the 502 issues have cleared up for you for better site access speed. If you do need to use the Hosts fix still for the short term go here: http://pastebin.com/XyPPKcxJ

The PM Received Notification As most of you are aware is not working on the site and has not worked since the move, it is your responsibility to check your inbox regularly for received PM’s till this problem is corrected.
Currently there is no time frame for when this problem will be resolved but it is being looked at.

504 Gateway Time-out Update

The DNS problem appears to have cleared up and if you did install the temporary hosts file fix please remove it.
It will still work but you will find that the access speed to the site will now be faster without the hosts file fix.

The new registration is now open
