Pelletheads

Thread Starter 
Anyone know what's up with the pelletheads website. Was up and working earlier in the week but now I get an error message when I try to view it. If this doesn't belong in the section feel free to move or delete.

The message says "Server currently undergoing maintenance."

The site was acquired by a new owner a month ago, after the previous owner and founder passed away earlier this year. The new owner pledged to keep the site content as originally intended, and do some technical enhancements which were sorely needed. During the past few weeks, the site became unstable with frequent 505 errors - possibly as a result of the new owner re-arranging some forums and doing other tweaks. Then, about 5 days ago the site went down and displaying the error you see now. Ominously, the last post I read minutes before the site went down was a member saying something like 'this is the end'.

 

So I can only speculate what's going on. Could just be a technical issue that is over the head of the new owner. Maybe he's doing a major upgrade. Or maybe he realized it's more work than expected and it's offline for good. There are some newly appointed PH forum moderators that are also members of this forum - so maybe they'll chime in soon with more details.

Has anyone tried to register at pelletfan.com?  I keep trying but even though I type the verification image properly, it says it's wrong.  I have tried upercase, lowercase and everywhere between.
