    oh well, I guess the domain pirates have it now. who was in charge of that site and it's registration? I haven't checked to see if it can be renewed or not. Let's hope so. Arrrgh matey, if the pirates 'ave it, it be lost. Arrrrrrgh.

    just do the whois lookup -- it recently expired, in which case I think the owner has a short window to keep it. Looks like it might have been nuclearmoose -- contact info is therein, contact directly.

    They're working it through - NuclearMoose (Craig) says so right in those maillist threads...

    All will be fine, gang... just be patient!

    Does anyone know where I can get some of the plugins that were being hosted there?
    I'm trying to get the
    Userextra (http://log.squish.net/2005/09/20/usermeta-userextra/)
    and the
    Post Levels
    (http://fortes.com/projects/wordpress/postlevels)

    Plugins for my new Blog but for the life of me I can't find where to download them from now that wp-plugins.org is down.

    Does anyone here have them?

    raiinstorm - you'll most likely be able to get them once the site is back up... i'm assuming that NM had a backup, and that once everything gets sorted out, you'll be able to get whatever you were looking for...

    It's all back up now, everything seems to be working again. Craig posted an explanation comment on my site over here: http://blog.slaven.net.au/archives/2006/07/19/wp-pluginsorg-expired/#comment-17462

    Just a domain mixup, that's all.
