New AVEN Backup Board

Recommended Posts

Amcan

Hello,

As you may have noticed occassionally AVEN suffers errors relating to the server or the software and the site goes down. Usually there is nothing to worry about and the problems are quickly resolved; however on occasion the problem may be more serious and AVEN will be deemed inaccessible for a longer period of time.

With that in mind there is a backup board for when AVEN goes down. It can be accessed here:
http://asexualityorg.proboards.com/index.cgi

Please note that your AVEN log-in details WILL NOT work on this new board. You will have to register as a new member although you can register under your AVEN username. You will also need to activate your account with a code sent to you via e-mail.

If you have any problems registering on the board there will be admins available for you to contact. Please, in case send an email to admods@asexuality.org.

Older members may recall that we previously had a backup board set up many years ago in response to AVEN being TOSsed by our original hosts. This is a new board. We felt with the way the current board has developed it made more sense to begin again rather than alter the original backup forums which remain as an important part of AVEN history.

The board will be view-only until it is required. It is a backup board and therefore does not need to be in use when the AVEN site itself is up and running.

The backup is hosted on a different server and therefore should remain unaffected by any technical faults affecting AVEN.

Please also remember than the AVEN ToS still applies to the backup board. We expect members to behave as civilly over there as here on the AVEN boards.

Even though there's a button for it, the chatroom on the backup board appears not to work.

We don't anticipate AVEN being inaccessible for too long a period of time.

The posting options may look a little different. We do not anticipate the board to be heavily used in any case and it is an easy interface to use.

We hope that this clarified things. We encourage you to bookmark the backup board now and if you have trouble accessing AVEN do check it out as the admod team will give updates over there.

Any questions please feel free to PM or e-mail me.

Thank you

It's been a while since this thread was posted, and many new users may not have seen it. I'm pretty much just giving it a bump so that everyone knows where to hang out when AVEN is down for too long (check the OP).

Try being patient and don't start a thread there if AVEN is down for one hour or two :p

If you find yourself are unable to post there, it means the backup board isn't "open for business" and AVEN is expected to be back soon (or at least the Admods haven't lost hope).
