Hey, everyone. GoDaddy, our hosting provider for the website, suspended Pump Haven completely due to the plethora of media files scattered throughout the website. As you all know, that has mostly been the entire point of this website since its inception in September 2003.

Before I deleted essentially all of the media we've built since the beginning (GoDaddy listed specific file extensions in a -very- thorough list, including .zip files), I backed up all 100GB+ of the server files for preservation. I will be doing something with all of this at a later date. It will likely be a Google Drive filled with goodies from the past for you all to enjoy.

For now, the forums and location database are still usable. However, this incident has made me very unhappy with our host of the last 14 years. I'm working with a team of people to provide some semblance of a redesign with a much smaller footprint, along with what I hope will be a read-only version of our old and archaic Ikonboard forums for archival purposes. We have had too much of a history here for me to just let it die.

I posted about this in our Facebook group for the website (which I highly insist you all join) and the reaction from you all has been heartwarming. Initially, I was so pissed off that I was ready to let the site die, but your responses made me try to do SOMETHING about the situation.

Let's talk about what we should do with this place. I want to hear from all of you.

Thanks for posting this information also here! I'm not in facebook and im not planning to go in. :smackhead:
So sad :(  to hear that because this is one of the few quality and reference sites for Pump it Up that still alive and it would be totally a pitty to lost all the work and memories that are kept under this place
I encourage you to do whatever you can to not let it definitely die

However it ends, I would like to thank you for everything you've done over past years maintaining this

Keep Pump it Up! PIU-1  PIU-7  PIU-5  PIU-9  PIU-3
