We've received multiple concerned emails about BlenderArtist being unreachable. I just talked to Roel Spruit, admin of BlenderArtists and he explained the situation to me. The site has seen multiple technical problems lately and Roel has decided to take it offline so he can work on a permanent solution. He expects to return at the end of this week.
