I am waiting to hear back from our current host, GreenGeeks, with some info on whether or not they will allow us to reenter the site and lift the restrictions until we can get our services fully uploaded to the new host, which has now been paid for.
The site is back online! However, I've disabled the forum as to refrain from pissing off our host with an influx of members trying to sign in and access stuff. I need to talk to Gemma before proceeding with things.
That being said, while Gemma is responsible for uploading our database, it is MY responsibility to keep this community on its feet and available to the members as best as I can. Gemma is currently trying to get through her last couple of weeks of school while dealing with some personal things, so the remaining downtime is partly mostly due to her schedule and how fast she can get things uploaded. Hopefully after I hear back from her, we can get a few boards open on the new forum until the switch, which buys her some time to get things uploaded without too much additional stress, and gives all of us some peace of mind. I will keep you posted
Again, I thank you guys so very much for your patience and I hope you're not all going as crazy as I am!

Take your time, Gemma! One of the best things about Equus (IMHO) is that everybody understands that our real life comes before our online life. Plus, this downtime has given a lot of people the chance to get to know each other a bit more
I don't know my loginname and password anymore at the new Equus site and forum.. And I don't know how I can get Equus to email it to me ?
And can we have the competitions back like we used to? Like Halter Shows and that kinda stuff, but the point system is useless now I think?
I can see that there's a member on the main site named Manon Carrana, so that's probably you. There's no forum account under that name yet, but when you create one, it must be the exact same name as your main site name, spaces and all. If you've forgotten your password to the main site, I'd recommend sending an e-mail to Christina, since I'm not sure if there's an on-site way to reset it.
We do have halter shows! The Breed Associations can host them, and members can also host B-rated halter shows through the Breed Associations and reward points for those as well. Lidija recently hosted her famous Aherne Marwin Stallion Show, for example. The competitions won't be quite like the ones on this old board, but we do have more going on now than when we first opened in January. If you have any other suggestions, there's a suggestion thread on the new forum where I'd recommend you post - this thread isn't really for suggestions for the new site, but just for updates on getting it back online and such.
