Status update for Pocketables audience

Hey gang, the Pocketables issue is resolved. If you’re still being redirected here please comment and let me know what article you were attempting to get. I received 644 more redirects and have no idea why as the site is no longer serving them up. Press back, then shift-f5 if you’re on a computer and it should refresh the header

Saturday November 4th, 2017 there was a database issue, Crowdgather support, the people who own Pocketables, fixed it.

Sunday November 5th the database went crazy and now nothing’s returning within a reasonable amount of time. I re-reported the issue. Monday they didn’t respond.

Right now I’ve got all Pocketables traffic coming here for an update that we’re down (as opposed to seeing a blank page.)

Wednesday November 8th, got an email late last night from the person in charge of accounting at CG who is going to attempt to get in touch with the owner to find out why we’re not getting any support.

Plans are being made for a lateral move to a different website. While we own, it’s probably time to disassociate from any similar name as CG could sell to something that completely brings down any cred we might have.

While I can’t do anything with the database, I did have access to the Pocketables theme editor and added a redirect over here.
