Is MeritBadge.org down?

Postby milominderbinder2 » Thu Oct 02, 2008 12:07 pm

Can someone else try to access Meritbadge.org:

http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

I get a message that this page cannot be displayed no matter what page I try to see. All other sites can be accessed from my office including meritbade.net.

Can someone else double check Meritbadge.org?

I use Internet Explorer and have been unable to log onto meritbadge.org since Thursday at 8:30 AM CDT.

Still today nothing.

If you log on and see pages, you could actually be looking at your own copies your browser stored on your own computer. Hit Refresh (View -> Refresh) to force it to bring up the site instead of your own computer's copy.

If suddenly you no longer see the website, you have been looking at your own reflection. To fix Internet Explorer so that you only see real pages, click Tools -> Internet Options -> Browsing History Setting -> and then choose:
"Check for newer versions of stored pages: Every time I visit a website."
