    I'd like to know the same thing. I did a google search for "what happened to puff.com" and came across a board that I won't name where there was a bit of shit talking going on.

    No idea, but it was the longet 4-days of my life. I actually had to carry on multiple conversations with my wife. I hope I never have to resort to that again.

    Glad to see we are back! It was weird not being able to get my usual Puff visits in. It didn't stop me from smoking though! LOL

    Yeah, I'd like to know, too. To be honest, I'd be a little wary of doing any more buying or trading here without some reassurance that this was a fluke and that the site's not in danger of disappearing forever. Some of the other guys who migrated over to botl were expressing similar concerns.

    There seems to have been some servers being converted or whatever. Not sure what happened but I would
    think we'll know more in a day or so.

    If you're paying using PP you have a method of contact to finish the transaction were there an outage. They are highly uncommon (I've never seen it down for more than 2 hour before this). I get the concern, but it seems somewhat unfounded.

    Man I was going crazy. I finished off a side project and had some disposable income to get rid of and without Puff I am in the process of buying a new R/C Heli instead of my Wineador and some boxes. It must have been the worst timing with the IPCPR going on as we speak.

    I figured if the people in charge wanted to let us know. Then they would let us know.
    However I'm just thankful Puff is up and running.

    Good point, but in a trade I wouldn't have any method of contact outside my puff inbox. Yeah, I'd only lose some cigars (whicha has happened before even with communication!), but still...

    Hopefully we'll find out. I don't think it was a failure but rather a sudden change to the servers. Like I said, hopefully when things
    are sorted out we'll get more info.

    An unannounced "sudden change" to the servers? That lasted 4 days? Sounds more like someone didn't pay their bandwidth/hosting bills and had to find a new colocation/host ASAP. It's a pretty poor way to run an online community and with no announcement as to "why and what" happened, well it tells me that we're the product not the customer.

    Let's all just be a little bit patient until we find out what happened. When the whole story comes out, if anyone still feels like they were wronged, well ... there are other cigar forums where one can spend time. (I've heard)

    Jump to conclusions much? 1. You're not the customer- last I checked, none of us pay for using this site 2. Give them some time to work it out, stuff happens and nothing good is served by making unfounded assumptions.
