    There is a problem with the battlestations96.org website. When you go to the website, it says it is temporarily unavailable. It also says for the owner of the website to contact technical support ASAP.

    Not sure if the site got hacked, or if we are behind on paying for it, but we should look into this ASAP.

    I'll check on the domain, it was on auto-pay so it should be good.

    I'm looking for new hosting options, I honestly got tired of the hosting company jacking up the rate every time I went to renew. I didn't think many people would notice, but I guess I was wrong. :(

    Well, maybe it's time to re-evaluate if we really need a separate website, then...

    I would honestly question how useful it really is if only a small group in Ohio even battles the format. Anybody else have thoughts on the matter?

    A subsection here would be plenty IMHO, until it grows a bit more.

    I would say just use the sub-forum on here. I joined the other site but really didn't look over there very often. I personally think that keeping all talk and info for the format in one place would do much more to grow the format than having a separate site. Just my two cents since you asked. :)

    Because I'm a nice man, I'll keep paying for the domain name so it doesn't get grabbed by non-battling squatters... I hate it when they grab something useful and then put a high price on it without intending to use it.
