Server down - websites out

Due to a server failure, several wargaming companies' websites have gone down, and due to personal circumstances, likely will stay down until the middle of the month. As far as we know, the following websites are affected.

The recovery is now in progress, though it may take some time for all sites to be back online.

It sure sounds like April 1st. Shame on the IT “professional” who set this up. Shared server resources don’t really work in crisis situations without proper High Availability Disaster Recovery (HADR) solutions in place. Duh! 🤦‍♂️

Shaun of S&S Models has reported earlier this morning that their site was down. Just looked now (!4.20 BST) and it is till down.
