Now they've relented and turned it back on until the 5th. Sigh.

Good luck on the transition - been using your page for the last couple of months (first time players) and it's invaluable - to the point where we had to play something else when we discovered the site was down. Might be worth a GoFundMe for initial hosting fees.

I have it mostly running on the new Amazon environment, and the total cost so far is $0.03, which was the bill for uploading all the existing design PDFs. So it's really more a matter of time than cost. :)

Anyway, I hope to have some good news on the updated release shortly.

P.S. They'll get me for hosting once the free tier expires, but that's a year from now.

Should be up now, though it could take a while for DNS changes to propagate.

Things not working at the moment:
* Saving designs (for now, just generate a PDF and save that)
* Searching designs by name
* Filtering the stock car list
* Rating/commenting on stock designs
* Admin stuff

None of that is super-difficult, so these things should start working again over the next week or so.

You will need to re-create your account, but as long as you put the same e-mail address on the account as you used before, all your old designs will carry over. (After re-creating the account you'll sign in with the username instead of the e-mail, which in theory will make it easier to change e-mail addresses in the future.)

Any news when the new site will be up & running ?

I can hardly read the writing & it's tricky to access anything - at least from my phone ...

It's up... You should be able to load and save designs, create PDFs, and browse stock cars.

The things still known to not work are rating stock cars, deleting designs from your list, and the admin stuff such as reviewing stock car submissions.

Also at least one person has reported that it didn't link up their previous designs, which I need to look into (the designs are still there, just not showing up for some reason).

Finally, it doesn't surprise me that it doesn't work well on a phone. I think proper phone support would need quite a different interface. Some day. :)

Problem re multiple weapons on a side, and the linking thereof:

I'm trying to re-create my _Hotshot_ variant with the three MDs and four F-mount MGs[*], and I'm running across a problem with how the MGs are displayed. The link scheme for the MGs is: One 4xMG link, two 2xMG link, and one 3xMG link. The way the MGs are displayed -- as a single "4x MG" bloc -- makes it impossible to accurately place the other three links; only the "4xMG link is allowed. I'm wondering if there's a way to get the MGs to be listed individually, so the other three links can be properly displayed.

[*: Yes, it's a "_Hotshot_" with no flamethrowers.... :) ]

Well I've managed to log on via Library's terminals but it was not easy. It still won't let me log on from my phone :-(

Any idea at all mate when it will return to how it was ? I could ask a couple of friends in the UK to host it for free , but I don't know if that would be convenient if your in USA ?
