    For the unfortunate soul who is worried on how to access the old forum for records of old stuff, Don't worry.
    At the moment, it is suffering from a rare condition called "error 526 - Invalid SSL Certificate". Some say it is contagious, but they possibly don't know a thing.

    To the Noob-minded, this means that the website has lost it's secure certificate, so you can't access it via https://.

    There is however, a simple and way to access the forums.
    Simply change "https", to "http".

    I can hear the questions now...
    Q. But Deibo, how did you know this fix?
    A. I studied in college. We just touched on the subject, so I wanted to know more. Basically, use Google.

    Q. But Deibo, how long did it take for you to realize it wasn't working?
    A. I was on pretty much every day until it happened. So, I would take it, 12 hours.

    Q. But Deibo, is the forum still secure?
    A. Only time will tell. But for now it's secure. I do suggest not to log in though. Because this forum is superior now.

    Q. But Deibo, what...
    A. No more questions. What am I, The dictionary or something?
    To conclude:
    use http://forums.pocketmine.net
    Don't use https until it's back up and running.

    Most likely won't fix it's own SSL certificate, I expect it won't ever be back (until shoghicp gives up the domain name)
