So apparently our webhost went and "upgraded" the servers in the background about 2 months ago.
All of my other domains transferred without a hitch and everything was happy hunky dorey.
Lo and behold, they didn't port over this domain and the forums properly. In the process they also broke my auto-notify system which would tell me if the boards were having issues/down.

On a whim I was upgrading some backend modules and went and clicked on the gorums and saw that they were down and the webhost had listed them as "Terminated".
Email bombardment ensued as I went after the hosting company and yelled at their lack of ability to verify a subscriber and all of their domains post-hardware move. (Let's forget that the subscriber never checked the sites explicitly either...)

Anyways...yeah, the boards are back up.

Shame that it was down while Teletus was opened. That was a real Gorums-type sim, but had nowhere to advertise.

Is Teletus closed? I only had a chance to visit it once last month and it was packed. When I went last night to see it again, it looked 75% under construction and the sim name was "..."

Yeah, it struggled for a couple of months before they pulled the plug. Beautiful sim, but if it's being rebuilt, I doubt it'd be Gor.
