(I hate to suggest it but) It looks almost as though the domain registration for stats.pbase.com has run out without renewal and maybe been picked up by some reseller. (I hope I'm wrong, preferring to think it's been hacked ... :shock: )

Thanks, after playing around it a bit more I was coming to a similar but unbelievable conclusion.

Yup, hacked for me too. Seems to want personal data with a bogus request to renew membership.

I emailed them at support@pbase.com earlier to report this "hack" and got an auto reply. That notice about screwed up DNS servers has been up since around 11:00 this AM. I suppose the two problems could be related.

This was posted this morning...

Pages, Images, Stylesheets Not Loading
Network Problem

The PBase servers are up and running with no problems. There was a networking / DNS issue that is preventing access to servers for some people, but not all.

If you are experiencing missing/broken pages, images, or stylesheets, it is due to this networking issue.

Steps have already been taken to resolve the issue, but it takes time for the changes to propagate through the network. We have done everything we can to resolve this as quickly as possible. Your patience is greatly appreciated while we wait for the update to reach everyone.

Because this is a networking issue, your emails might not reach our servers right away. We will answer your emails as soon as we can.

Thank you.
The PBase Team

Copy and paste(d) directly from this website:
How often are statistics updated?
The statistics are updated once a day around 2AM UTC.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The above statement will soon become erroneous if not
repaired sooner, than later.

For a [paid for] service... 'Patience is the Fruits of Endeavor' can only last for so long.

(Who would have ever thought... it would require electricity to look at photographs.)

Here's to having the problem FIXED soon!

=====================
Here at my end (SW FL USA) everything has been working OK for almost a day. I also just quickly browsed thru your galleries and did not see any problems viewing them.

Ah, but have you clicked on the 'View full statistics' link in your profile? Things appear to still be less than 100%. Interestingly, sometimes I see a bunch of Asian characters, but sometimes there are a fair number of English words/phrases on the page that comes up.
