How is this question related to Fedora? I'd contact the owners/maintainers/operators about it.

The FedoraForum is a valuable resource and many of us use it along with this. In fact, I've been a member there longer than I've been here. Asking about a Fedora support site seems Fedora-related to me, but YMMV.

And, as of this afternoon is back up and functional. By the way, guys, we're not in competition; both and Ask Fedora provide assistance to users of Fedora and it's a good idea to check with both when questions arise. gravatar ( 2018-04-10 17:12:10 -0500 )edit

Hi, this is Bob, an Admin at . The Forum has been down for two days now due to severe server issues. As many of you know, the Forum is donated by a benefactor who has been pressing the server folks for answers and is as frustrated as the Staff is with the unresolved problem. We hope to have things back quickly, but please continue to use Ask Fedora and their expertise until things are back to normal.

Is Fedora Forum a official site of Fedora or endorsed for Fedora? Can you clarify us about it?

Welcome to ask.fedora, both of you. Yes, the forum seems to be down. I can't get there, I can't ping it and nslookup can't resolve it. In the future, you can use Down for Everybody to check on things like this.

If it's down, its because of maintenance / system upgrades. Friday night is when it wend down, Now we have hopes for it to be backup for Monday

I don't think that's it. If it were, the hostname would resolve but the server wouldn't respond. Checking with whois , the tech email address is , although I've no idea if they'd respond to any email queries.

It's been couple of days, it would be nice if would at least get an update of what is going on. Anyone that can contact the owners/maintainers?

Yes, you can. I gave you the proper address already.

for the time being you can press the green triangle under the google search link and access the google cached copy of the forum, it is not elegant but you can still access knowledge.
