Not sure if okay to post here, but have been unable to log into Kent History Forum for a couple of days.  Is anyone else having problems?

It is telling me that it is in Maintenance Mode - Closed until current issues are dealt with

Thanks Rosie, same here.  But it usually announces when it will be closed.  Just have to bide our time.

I would imagine that they possibly have an unforseen problem hence no information as to when it will be back up and why the closure was not announced.

It could be they are making some changes and have elected to go into maintenance mode or it could be the forum hosting company having problems. I host a small closed forum elsewhere and the maintenance message comes up when the host is doing stuff or having problems.  I usually get an early message if scheduled maintenance is going to happen.
I would suggest waiting a few days.
