On Saturday afternoon our hosting provider had a technical problem that impacted YLF and many other websites. Not only was the blog and forum unreachable, but our email server was also down. For the first time in almost 3 years, youlookfab.com was completely dark for longer than a day. What made this even more frustrating was the fact that there was no way for us to provide an error message to explain the outage.
After many anxious hours, the issue was resolved and full functionality is restored with no data loss. There may still be hiccups, so if you do experience bad performance, please use the contact form to let us know.
We apologize for the outage. Our provider, Media Temple, is recognized as being one of the best in the industry, so this should be a rare occurrence. If the site is down in future you can use our gmail mailbox to get in touch with us. Our gmail username is “ylfsupport”. Just append “@gmail.com” to the end of that to get our email address.
Thanks for your patience and/or your passion for YLF.
