One of the biggest frustrations when a site is not available is never quite knowing what is happening, or if it's just you.
As I'm sure some of you know, we have a Test Site where many of the new features go before they are released on the main site. This runs on a completely different server so is not affected by any server problems the main site may have.
Cable Forum has set up a Status Forum
on the Test Site where we will try and keep you informed of any major problems in the future. You may find it useful to bookmark this for future reference.
Obviously you are free to look round the rest of the Test Site - however - bear in mind that you may find things that don't work, and most of the topics are completely meaningless test threads
Also, please bear in mind that some of the features on the test site will never make it to the live forum.
