Sorry to ask a question on this forum about another forum, but I know we have several here that contribute there as well. Baseball-fever has been down most of the week ("Forbidden" message). Anyone know the story, or more importantly, when they plan to be back up and running?

Not sure, but I have been experiencing the same problems. It was up briefly this afternoon, but was down again shortly after.

I don't know if Marc, Ken, Amy or Sluggers minds having this topic here but until they make a comment, I'd like to respond. Many here know I moderate the 101 Coaching Forum and have for some time. The site has been down now for two days. I don't have anyway of knowing what is going on. I know one other similar site based upon the same platform is now down and has been for a week. This site is on the same platform as well. Mud and I have tossed back and forth a few ideas but including weather issues that might have somehow affected where the server is located, hackers, program updates, ... I don't have anyway of contacting the owners of the site since my contact phone number with them is in my old phone that broke a month or two ago. So, right now, we'll just have to sit it out and wait.

Side note, I am hoping that ownership just didn't decide that they have had enough. LOL

I am hoping that as well. I realize there is a lot to managing a forum. But these 2 forums, BBF and DFP, have such a huge outreach and offer a tremendous amount of information for those that take the time to sift through it.

I would like to mention that the Moderators here at DFP have always been very gracious people who have gone out of their ways to make DFP an outstanding resource to the softball community. Forums such as this and the one I moderate do a great service for their members.

Yes! I believe it was your co-Mod who I heard it from first...DFP and BBF do a good job at offering practical information in an accessible way that a parent/coach can take with them an help their kid/player improve immediately. Other sites get way too bogged down with personalities intent on their agenda of proving that they know more than everyone else about mechanical minutia to be truly helpful.
