Can't Visit Doomworld Forum?

Postby Average » Sun Jul 26, 2015 2:34 am

I know that Doomworld was moving and that AtomicGamer was closing. Now I can't get into the forum. I get this:

If you are seeing this, your ISP has a stale DNS cache and you are seeing the old and no longer active Doomworld server. The new IP is now 69.164.207.121 . You may also want to try flushing your own DNS a la https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html.

So long AtomicGamer and thanks for all the fish~~~

I've flushed my DNS and I've copied the above IP into the address bar. It takes me to the new front page but when I click on the forum button I still just get the above message...

Anyone able to help a noob fix this? :)

Try going here: http://www.doomworld.com/vb/
It loads alright for me, but it won't let me log in, as it says I have the wrong password, which I do not :evil:

IIRC DNS servers need to propagate the information of the IP change between them. So some servervs need more time than others. So if flushing your DNS cache doesn't fix the problem try to change your DNS servers (I use Google DNS), wait or try with http://doom.world
