    Over the last few days it has been both functioning, and not functioning.

    Usually takes me to the "Page not Found" screen, when not working.

    I haven't been able to get to it for the past three days. I've been digging around the forums looking for an announcement or acknowledgment of a maintenance period, but have yet to find one. Maybe migrating to a new server?

    Same here, I'd like to know why the wiki's been DOA for the last three days.

    Apparently the server that was running the wiki died over the weekend, (it requires like 20 different servers to run all of the sites in the incgamers network) and an emergency migration had to be launched. Why it's taken so long for the DNS to refresh I don't know, but it's aggravating.

    We don't happen to have access to the IP, do we?

    Thanks for the update Flux! As the Poet suggested, feel free to disseminate the IP ;)

    Flux, are you sure it's a DNS issue?

    Oki, just got a little update from Rush. He is working hard to get it all sorted again, some technical difficulty.

    Anyway, it should not affect DiabloWiki for too much longer now, hopefully! :)

    Thanks for the update Leord.

    And big thanks to Rush and Flux for working so hard to keep the wiki alive.

    Re: What the hell happened to the wiki?

    I hope it is not the same "technical difficulty" that has seen the wow wiki and the wow item database offline since mid may...

    I wish that the higher ups would be honest about this. It seems that they prefer to sweep it under the carpet in the hope that everyone will forget once a few months have passed...

    Re: What the hell happened to the wiki?

    The wow wiki has never been down, but yes, WoWDigger is having problems.

    Why do you feel anyone is being "dishonest"? They are very busy people, and I can't really see any "dishonest" actions in here at all...

    I'm naturally one of the people that is most upset about this downtime anyway :p I love the wiki, probably more than most :(

    Yeah, I really miss having the wiki too. I didn't realize how much time I killed there. Plus the list of changes I want to make to the Alchemist page is steadily growing lol.

    You can see pages you really need by using cache on google. This is how I am still reading the build guide I was following.

    I am perplexed that Leord is still able to post. I thought he drew his life force from editing the wiki ;)
