We're back on the Internet
Posted on Feb 27, 2020 by thedopefish

Our hosting provider had a server failure recently that took the website and forums offline for a few days. They've finally gotten everything back up and running, and we were able to bring everything back up again thanks to Mon732. However, some recent submissions to the main site may have been lost in the database migration :(

Keep hacking Metroid everybody!

The forums are currently down, we are working to get them back online. Apologies for the inconvienience.

Also a message from Jiffy regarding the contest:

"If the forum is down for an arbitrary amount of time, I (Jiffy) will consider an extension to the contest by an arbitrary amount of time. For now, have this pastebin of the rules if you need to look at particular conditions for the current contest. https://pastebin.com/ZzJSeLBB
