I have to agree with some of the sentiments about social media I've seen upthread.  Doesn't matter if one was following facebook/twitter/etc because CGL didn't say anything via those media.
Information was posted to the BT twitter and facebook pages, which you can find in my sig.

I don't want to argue with ya Ray but I do want to clarify that you took my post slightly out of context.  Yeah, clearly, TPTB did make posts on FB/Twitter.  I was arguing the position that said posts didn't actually convey new and useful information beyond what anyone could already see when one tried to connect to the site(s).  In other words: "We're down.  With no ETR."

Anyway, that's a quibble.  I found out about the information I deemed relevant (you were hacked, how serious was it, etc) by venues other than your PA channels.  Regardless, I'm glad you guys did A) decide the forums were worth restoring and B) did so.  Thanks for what you do, even if I was claiming CGL's official announcements weren't helpful in informing us about what was going on.

SInce the "restart" site buildup is 21 century fast for me. So all in all great job, I guess. Make Battletech great again. O:-)

Well, the 502nd Division seems to have been displaced by the 504th, will rolling blackouts. 504th is ComStar, so 502nd must be Word of Blake. Choose sides! Who's liturgies will be dominant?

At least it isn't the 501st! We would never hit any of the openings in the errors to post things.

At least the 504th Shadow Division has been driven off, but for how long...

Still it could be worse, there was that time an Adept on Derion accidentelly deleted the System32 folder for the HPG there, that took some fixing. 

Also, basically Comstar's tech support;
