The DF2Mod forums are down for the very same reason as MOTS. We had nothing but problems with spam bots and it also looks like our host Freeforumhost isn't very reliable with their own network as their main page displays similar coding errors. Based on our experience, I wouldn't recommend them and it doesn't look like I'd recommend invisionfree either, although I can't personally speak for Seph or any of the other MOTS team members. As for the project itself, I'm sad to see it go as they made some really cool stuff.
Jedispy, if you're willing to pick it up or DFMod when it wraps (I know we talked about that. It took longer than expected to finish) just let me know. I might have a busy schedule but I'm more than willing to give it the time, whenever I can.
