What in the Hell is Wrong with Portland Indymedia?

by just asking questions Friday, Aug. 18, 2017 at 8:32 PM

the Portland Indymedia website is the most unreliable remaining US indy website. http://portland.indymedia.org/ It's up and down more than a yo-yo on acid. And that's not counting the conspiracy crap infesting the wire. What gives?

The Portland Indymedia website is the most unreliable remaining US indy website. http://portland.indymedia.org/
It's up and down more than a yo-yo on acid.
And that's not counting the conspiracy crap infesting the wire.
What gives?

Recently the site was down for almost a month. When it returned, allegedly around Aug 11th, there was this explanation:

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2015/01/428857.shtml

alternative media 11-Aug-2017 22:48
Hot Tech

We had some heat exhaustion on computers running the site that us down for a few days. It is all cool now. Weather blows, but we keep going.

-------------------------

I don't think that's how it works. Any competent tech person would have the computers in a temperature and moisture neutral place ALL THE TIME.
But hey maybe they can hammer this out at their meeting this Saturday:

Indymedia Events:
Usually held on 3rd Saturday of the month - (email PIMC to verify)
Next Meeting: 6:00 PM
Bipartisan Cafe 7901 SE Stark st.
General Meeting

Of course few people will know about it because as of this writing the wire is DOWN AGAIN.

http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/portland.indymedia.org

Is portland.indymedia.org down?

It's not just you! portland.indymedia.org looks down from here.

______________

They can't blame it on the weather now....
Maybe time to turn the sub domain over to someone who knows what they're doing.

Hope it comes back soon

by Regular Visitor Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017 at 6:17 PM

I seem to recall having trouble getting to the site some months ago (maybe as long ago as June or even May).

I hope their problems are resolved soon. That site has good content, and there are still active contributers.

People? Mods more like....

by yeah sure Tuesday, Oct. 03, 2017 at 2:35 PM

"as people have been posting in recent days."

If this is after a couple of weeks of down time(are the servers still hot? lol) this is almost certainly the mods/bees/owners trying to make things look lively.

It's down again and has been so a while. FFS if they're having this many problems why doesn't someone from the collective ask for some fucking help from the main Indymedia org? Otherwise its some bullshit to claim they're any kinda "news" wire.

If a corporate website pulled this shit NO ONE on indy would be giving them a pass.
Get your shit together or shut down. Or give it to someone who knows WTF they're doing.

Comment moderation? Seriously?

by wow Wednesday, Oct. 04, 2017 at 10:51 PM

Maybe instead of deleting/modding/disappearing comments some one should email Portland indymedia and ask who is in charge and WTF is going on.

Reddit thread.....

https://www.reddit.com/r/Portland/comments/74qhu5/anyone_know_what_happened_to_portland_indymedia/

"Does anyone have any info on what happened to Portland Indymedia? Have not been able to get into its site for almost a week now. This hasn't happened before, that I know of."

(clearly isn't a regular lol)

"[–]fidelitypdx 9 points 19 days ago

Works fine for me.

The site is run by a single volunteer on a long outdated web-server. God forbid someone do pen-testing on it. I'm honestly surprised it hasn't been taken down by malware yet.

In years past when I used Indymedia I'd encounter problems from time to time, mostly 403 errors."


"thediskordCascadia 5 points 19 days ago

I got it to load, see if it works as non-https.

I have noticed in the past that https connections will not connect."

"[–]santiamiammobile>desktop flair activated 4 points 19 days ago

Got acquired by Aracnet."
