I know there are probably bigger things on your mind, but I'm just curious what will happen if our VIP expired during the week you were down? I'm posting this here because you said you won't answer PM's, so yeah :P
But that aside, it's good that you guys are back up. And you're right, your host was stupid for taking you down, they had no reason to.
Did your VIP expire before MPGH went down? All current users got their VIP back + 1 month.
My VIP would've expired on the second day of downtime.
Even if it expired before, didn't you say once that Dave would probably extend VIP's a bit because of the lack of hacks/bypasses? So even if mine did expire before the downtime, it'd probably be extended into the downtime?
But yeah, as far as I can remember, on one of my last days of VIP membership, I logged on to the site and it was blank. My membership expired before the googlepages page went up, but after the forums went down.
