Board link redirecting to passport now?
 
I just got word that this is happening for some but not others. Peculiar.

This was happening for me, I asked on twitter and April had no problems. Finally found the original IP address rather than going through DNS... http://207.126.54.101/

Might have been a change that propagated through some DNS servers, but not others...

Thanks for the original IP address I've been given from matineeidyll outside of here. I'm from Italy and the bbs links send me only to the passport.
And the Google search too.
Thanks Dug for the IP!

I will try when I get home later on my laptop as it's fine on my mobile.

A friend from Poland has the same problem.
I'm from Italy.

hitting bbs.foofighters.com worked a couple of times today. Once I went to post and it took me to passport...

the 207. ... works reliably for me right now.

Yeah this is going to start happening to everyone as their DNS cache updates, it varies per ISP. As has been posted for now you can access via the IP which will always work, although some things won't load.

There is nothing I can do about it, I've asked Jill to check with management on it.

I've only just got it working now. I thought the forum had been put to sleep! 😩

There was no way for me to know though. One day the new site was up and the forum was gone. And the old address just directed me to the main website.

I'm just playing. :)
If you see my post count, I basically love here. It might kill me if/when it goes away.

forum.foofighters.com is what they went with as the solution when we informed them of the problem, I don't know why they couldn't just fix bbs or at least re-direct it here, but unfortunately all of that stuff is out of my control.

I don't think they think it's much of a problem....I'll ask management again.

Should be all fixed!

Yup, bbs.foofighters.com should now be redirecting to forum.foofighters.com, so any lost souls typing in the old address will now get here.

We could have switched back to bbs as the main address but I think forum makes more sense in 2017, it's not really a "bulletin board system" any more. The important thing is those still using the old address get here, rather than the main site.
