I got intouch with Boardhost and so far have had no reply to answer why was the board down?
I was starting to worry incase they'd went bust, so I had a look for alternative message boards. If that ever happened, and I hope it never does, don't worry as I'll have an alternative up and running asap. Just look for the new URL Link on either of my websites. I'd keep the same name 'Hebburn and our Neighbours' anyway.
I dont want to lose any visitors like what happened when Vikki closed her board with very little notice.
