What are we going to do if the site goes down tomorrow? What's the plan?
Is it posted somewhere?

We should at least have a forum on Reddit to all get together IMHO.

If you think we went crazy in 2016 when we lost DU on election day, holy F*** a lot of us would lose our sanity ENTIRELY if we didn't have a place to talk to each other.

Do we have a plan?

3. I actually don't know if I would, depending on how it goes ...

There's no reason to NOT have a plan.

There's other places we could meet and have a similar experience in the meanwhile.

2. No offense, but how many of these threads do we need?

You can bet you’ll be offended very soon.

7. What I will do is go watch MSNBC until the site is back up.

DU has a Facebook group and a Twitter account. You can check those if it goes down. However, don't expect a DU administrator to respond to your posts at either place. The site administrators will be trying to fix the issue and get the site back up.

Typically, what happens on those alternate sites is that people swarm them and ask what's going on and why is the site down? There is no answer, because nobody knows why and the administrators are busy. So, no useful information appears for some time. Just panicky posts that answer no questions at all. When an administrator has time, he will post something on both sites to give a progress report. You can watch for such posts.

But, you can also go watch election coverage on your TV. That's what I will do if DU goes down tomorrow.

14. Trolls end up there, in addition to all the questions

about the site being down, etc , making it tough to have any discussion. At least that’s how I remember it.

9. 2016 was traumatic in any number of ways

Trump's election was chief among them.

It was also distressing that DU was hacked. I missed our camaraderie during such dark days.

Regardless, I went to other websites for news and information. After all, this is the internet!

As MineralMan mentioned above, turn on your TV.

17. **** it I made a reddit

Called it DUbunker just in case. I don't really wanna be in charge of it at all. Its open to the public so could also devolve into a shitshow. Not planning to use it except in emergency because I don't want to detract from this place in any way.

58. Yes, I do think that there should be a DU reddit group.

In the event that DU gpes down, I do plan to hang out in a friendly reddit group.

Would be a big improvement on what happened last time.

...And by 'Hacked,' they mean the number of hits overwhelmed the capacity of the low-bucks deal the $kammer made for domain hosting in order to have more in the $kammer Family Vacation Fund.

The operative question is not if, but when.

Might have to follow their Reddit group for shits and giggles. :popcorn:

8 hours equals business day. That is 3 business days.

Step 1: Decide whether  the "hackers" were Russian, Ukrainian, Chinese, or Iranian.

Step 2: Fantasize the 8 degrees of separation from the hackers to Trump.

Step 3: Howl, whine, and :stoner: . Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. ... Repeat.
