    Who else thinks we need a back up forum for Chazhound? Just for those times like if the site needed to be shut down to fix things. Just so we all wouldn't go through Chaz withdraws. Im not saying replace it but just have a backup plan just in case something happened to our additive forum. Anyone else think its not such a bad idea? I could put it together and PM everyone with the link to it so they would have it just in case. Just a thought will all this weirdness going on right now.

    What you going to do? Have a backup web server just for forum problems?
    That can be expensive and a shared solution won't handle even 20 at a time.

    Chazhound Forum has at times now 3-400 on it at one time and it is causing web server problems. We are finding a solution now. It should be corrected soon.

    No I figured I would just put together a forum on a free site and just have it there if this site ever went down. I just figured that alot of people would lose touch and they wouldn't want to. Im not trying to take over the site or steal people from the site. I just figured it would be a way to never lose contact.

    Whenever this site was down, it was for a short period of time. I think, or I should hope, that we can handle being away during that time.

    Two of the forums I am on have back-up forums. Well one''s a blog spot that the admins post why the forum is down and then members can add comments and such.

    No offense to anyone but personally I think if people are so attached to a forum they get awfully uneasy when it goes down for a day or two, then something''s a little wrong.

    Just so everyone knows im not obsessed or anything. This is just the forum I talk on the most. So I would just not have anyone to talk to online and no place to vent lol like I do here. I don't know just figured it would just be a good away to stay in touch.

    I shouldn't have even suggested it. Lol because im coming off as a crazy person lol.
