Is il2skins down again?
I haven't been able to get through to pick up Goodwood's new P-40B Pearl Harbour skins.
Anyone else had problems getting a server not found message on www.il2skins.com (http://www.il2skins.com) ?

Yes, site appears to be down again http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif.

Not down, it appears to be gone, as in no URL exists

Sharx had occupational troubles, I hear, which plain old sucks. Things like food and heat take precedence over paying for a domain...I hope it was archived and that Il2skins makes a comeback...best thing for Il2:FB outside of the game itself

CanonUK made it seem like il2skins going off line would mean the loss of everything. I hope that's not what happened. I think we would have heard something sooner, like another request for emergency donations before they would let the site die, especially after all the work they've put into it.

I read that post by Canon_UK, too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Unfortunately, he rarely posts about something if he doesn't know the situation pretty well

Canon_Uk is a moderator over there, so I imagine he could shed some light on the situation...can someone PM him?...

I just tried the URL and this message appeared:

Hello users,

A security breach resulted in some major hacking of the site.. Same attack
that affected ubisoft earlier.

We'll try what we can to restore it.

Sorry about that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
