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. 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.
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:

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.

Is down?

It's not just you! 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.

It's up today (9-16-17) and appears to have been up for the last few days as people have been posting in recent days.

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.

"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."

Down again ,must be tiring

by observer Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017 at 5:37 PM

The site was more or less up for the last month but now is offline again.
Last Google cache of pages was later October to mid Nov.
I'd assumed someone had fronted the bill to fix whatever problems currently plague it, but guess not. They were just lucky..

So this is a thing that happens alot?

by Browser Thursday, Feb. 01, 2018 at 6:39 PM

I browse Portland indymedia semi regularly, but never noticed it was down alot. Or at least not for long. Most times I've checked it was up and if not back so soon I assumed it was a browser problem.

Too bad they don't have solid tech. Or more than one guy(!). Guess it shows indymedia is a dinosaur and everyone has moved on.

up, but no compost

by DBG Friday, Feb. 09, 2018 at 8:43 AM

they're live again, but people are wondering what happened to the compost for 2017/2018

if they can't be bothered to actually run the site, they should kill it already. as the orange lunatic in the white house says: "sad".

Not just you. I check in on PIMC and it's a real 50/50 shot whether it will be up or down. As I type this (2/21/2018) it is snowing here in OR and the site is DOWN!

As for all the alt-right/Libertarian-Right/unverified conspiracy threads that frequently get published on there... that's another story.

It was up for a while earlier this year

by Indymedia Connoisseur Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018 at 9:23 AM

I was going there for a while in January (maybe part of February). I'm glad it's still going even if intermittent.
