I can get on the website, but when I choose a show (a JJ Grey & Mofro show of course) I get the message that the website has caused internet explorer to shut down and it can not recover after atempting to recover.  anyone else having this problem?

I just checked and working on my end. I thought maybe they went dark because of today's protest but they're not. Very cool, they've changed things up. And you can now embed a player with an entire show although at the moment I can't get it to work properly. It's in a beta stage so it may be on their end. They literally rolled out the changes in the last week apparently.

I think the problems you are having Sunshine are due to what MF1 just said.  They are changing up their website and in doing so, there will be some problems until they finalize everything.  Probably just have to be patient and keep trying, once it's fixed, you should be good to go.

yep, there is a protest page up there now. 

I think we all need to protest this as youtube is effected as well.

gotta keep the venues open to share the Mofro.

 

Thanks for your input guys!!

It's a big deal for sure and would impact sites like ours. I gave a little consideration of going dark today but decided not to. Not because I don't agree with what the others are doing.

I understand what it's all about and agree with it wholeheartedly. The problem here is 2-fold. There are 2 different websites here, the forum and the main site. The forum provider is totally different and I have limited control. The dashboard does not allow me to "black out" the site or take it down. I can do that by contacting support. They are in India and typically respond in 12 hours (because of the time difference.) I'm late to the party.

I have much more control over the main site. And I could do it but once again there's not a plug to pull. In addition to creating a new home page I'd have to create temp pages for all the other ones. If I'd have given more thought to it a few days ago I could've done. But it's easily 3-4 hours work and I've got work deadlines to fill.

I could kill the DNS; I don't think would take much. But people wouldn't get a blacked out page, they'd get a 404 or site cannot be found sort of thing.
