Is there a way we can set up a redirect from the Old UG's URL to this one? So that future TBP fans who search the Underground don't end up lost? Or at least put up a notice in that URL to send them this direction?
Ellron Silvertree I'm sure there is a way to do that; however, I would assume that the owner of the domain name would be the only with such authority. Hopefully the hackers haven't taken the URL as well. I shall contact Mr. Zoll. Great suggestion!
EDIT: Mr. Zoll said the site is completely offline, so a redirect isn't possible. :(
Dmitri Pendragon That's a good question, and one that I do not know the answer to. It may be that the hackers took possession of the domain name, in which case they would be the only individuals with permission to institute a redirect. I could be wrong, of course. See what Jag says; I assume he is more skilled in this area than I. :)
There are two ways to redirect a hostname to an IP address - the fancy/preferred/regular way (using DNS) or the quick & easy way (using a simple HTML redirect).
To do the first one, we would need to pay ProBoards (https://www.proboards.com/premium-forum-features).
The second way won't work because the old site is totally down. For an HTML redirection to work, there must be an HTTP site on the old server to store the HTML redirect tag. I assume this is what Sir Zoll referred to when he said that a redirect would not work.
If a hacker did take possession of a domain name, it would be a matter of proving to the domain registrar that you were the original registrants of that domain name and them giving control back to you.

Fight it, take the pain, ignite it, tie a noose around your mind loose enough to breathe fine and tie it to a tree. Tell it, "You belong to me. This ain't a noose, this is a leash. And I have news for you: you must obey me."
One of my posts disappeared inexplicably. It was when me and Eaglam were poking fun about Nar Shaddaa. Anyone know why? If someone was offended, 1) I was not notified, and 2) it was nothing to be offended about

The usually don't slow my computer down. And they only distract me when I look at them--half of the time I don't even notice them :P Though I do often use avatars as my primary method of identification, over even usernames, so they could possibly get distracting. But not as of yet.
Of course it also depends on how flashy or subtle they are.
Dmitri Pendragon: Elytra: Wait, it's actually referring to the oldest post on the Underground? (I never did chase that down in fact…)

Leilani Sunblade: Rose: Welcome to Whitehall/the new Underground! Glad to see you found your way here. As Elytra said, the riddle's pointing towards the old site and, specifically, a scavenger-hunt type game that WTB and CH set up when they first released the book

Leilani Sunblade: Sadly, the game is over, but we still have fun here.
