    Apollo News - Staff update on the recent situation

    As most of you will have noticed, APL has been down for over a week now. This downtime is due to a lack of payment for our backend server, which is a result of the absence of our sysop O.

    I or any of the other staff have no ability to log into the host's website and pay for the server, so there is nothing we can do to resolve this situation. All we can do is hopefully wait for O to return.

    Because O and I are both very strict on opsec, the only ways we are able to communicate are PMs on the Apollo site, and via IRC chat. Because O's personal server is down, he is unable to be online on IRC, and we can't chat on the APL website either because that's down. For these reasons, it is impossible for me and the other staff to get into contact with O, and to ask him to fix the site.

    I am not sure why O has not paid the server, and why he has not made contact with the staff since the site's downtime. I do know however that O has been very busy with real life stuff lately, which might restrict his ability to fix the servers. (Again, O is very strict on his personal security)

    Another possibility is that O lost his motivation for running APL, and is letting it die this way. However, I have been admin of this site for about a year now, and I think it would be unlike O to just walk off and leave us to rot. If O decides to call it quits on APL, I sincerely hope he at least contacts me and gives me access to the database and domain, so the other staff and I can continue running the site we love.

    Sure, there is another sysop (W), but I have not heard from them in months. I know they are also very busy, but it's possible they can check in and fix the situation, if they discover what's wrong. Unfortunately, I have no way of contacting them either.

    Please hold tight and keep all your torrents seeding, we will update you as soon as we can.

    --A***** (and the other APL staff)

    While i really like Apollo, i am sick with their shitty excuses!

    Every time the tracker is down (and it's down more often than any other tracker) they are trying to convince us, that it's down because of the super secure way they are working. lol this is ridiculous. Many trackers are that secure (or even more secure) and they are not down every now and then.

    btw every time the tracker was down in the past, they were blaming the previous owner (i don't even remember his username/letter, maybe A, B, C, D, E, F, G.... or Z) for his absence and his lack of interest. The Admin O (the current owner) was begging for the tracker's keys since he was able (according to his opinion) to run it smoothly and he finally managed to become the new owner. And now we have a deja vu. An Admin is blaming the new owner O for everything and begging for the tracker's keys to run it smoothly.

    I know it's not that easy to run a big tracker, i know most users are greedy and are not supporting their beloved tracker and i also know that real life is sometimes a bitch (and definitely more important than any tracker). But you still have to put your shit together guys and keep this great tracker alive. I really hope/believe you can do it and i wish you good luck!

    08:55 <~Athena> I'm going to be very honest with y'all

    08:56 <~Athena> I have contacted the host of the backend server, and I was able to extract information about our database server

    08:56 <~Athena> it's wiped because it wasn't paid for...

    09:01 <~Athena> I assume this is it, I'm sorry
    bad news. hope that o has a backup and that he returns.
