I'm not actually questioning ahk.net reliability, I will keep using it and still think it's the best option to post file links here in the forum. But like many others I just want to know what happened and if this will be solved... I had backup of my files, but some users have lost theirs.

Problems can arise for a couple of reasons. Starting from automatic updates (apt-get update upgrade in crontab is a common evil) over to hack attacks.
So do not blame people who work hard for this community.

The only problem here is, that there is lack of staff who is in charge. Autohotkey.net is a personal project of Poly, so there is actually no guarantee of service.

For Autohotkey.com, it is a bit different.

Whats about sumon? I thought he has administrative access to the whole site.

JSLover is another person who aggressively offered support to fix forum issues, adding syntax highlighting etc. I dont know why he does not have yet access to the forum, probably Poly has its good reasons to not trust him. I have no idea.

I wasn't having a pop btw :) but you're right, I'm terrible at backing up and keeping version copies and fortunately haven't suffered much this time. Only thing I can think of is the server has started running out of space and auto melting peoples files
The problem with humanity is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

Is L.autohotkey.net the only source to download AHK_L ?

Looks like you can get it off the German site, see here.

My Scripts are written for the latest released version of AutoHotkey.

Need a secure, accessible place to backup your stuff? Use Dropbox!

As of the moment the homepage is back up!

Not the user pages though. Looks like someone's looking into it now.

Amazing to see some people complain and make demands about something that is offered to them for free. Give the guy (P) a break. ahk.net works 99.99% of the time and something like this hasn't happened before in all these years (not that I can remember anyway), things happen, I'm sure there is a backup somewhere - any good hosting service has a backup plan. Give it a bit of time... (and don't start crying "but it is been a day already")

Or hackers maybe... who knows? I'm now starting to think that maybe poly could actually be away from any tech devices... Or too busy to post an official note about it. Let's give him some time. I don't think he would let his own projects abondoned or anything like that.

I'm just going to use dropbox from now on

Ditto here, 2GB for free and a dead simple user interface.

AFAIK the only thing you could do with autohotkey.net that you can't do DropBox is host a website.


Not sure about that. I got this webpage up.

Can we FTP upload to and URLDownloadToFile from dropbox the same as Autohotkey.net?

Anchor shows -https://ahknet.autohotkey.com/~polyethene/repos/trunk/Anchor.ahk as the download location.

All of the ones I checked show a folder on autohotkey.net.

? so all of my files are gone as well. looks like Rambo is making un-announced changes again I honestly dont know why you are all amazed/dismayed by his behavior anymore. Its not gonna change and he is not going to change. he has made it clear numerous times that user feedback is accepted but ignored. Poly knows best. now be good little children and take your whippings standing up. Poly seems bound and determined here to make changes that are for the best. lets give him time to properly eliminate the rebels and disband the senate (queue up the Darth Vader effects). I honestly don't know why you all keep complaining.
Never lose.
