Brassgoggles steampunk site is down?

I know they many people who visit this site also visit brassgoggles.co.uk and the accompanying forum, and i know there's quite a lot of overlap between these two sites, with members migrating here, to show off their work, for example; Heresyoftruth and aintmicheal. For the past few days, i've not been able to access the site, nor its forum from any of the computers i've tried with. All i get is a screen that tells me: "Error establishing a database connection This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at 213.171.218.251. This could mean your host's database server is down." Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Has anyone heard from a moderator, or do they know where i can contact a mod? I'm starting to get worried about this.

Yeah, a few hours ago and I'm still waiting for the activation e-mail. If you can, could you PM Phoebsky there and ask her what's taking so long?

I can and will, but Pheobsky's a man.
Well I wasn't to know that, now was I? ;) Thanks, maybe I can actually get logged on at some point.

I'm not getting in again..... =[....]

I just get "page not found". Is it just me again? If i put in just "brassgoggles.co.uk" without the www. I get a page trying the sell the domain. Has it expired?

same stuff on the facebook page, no mods or admins to speak of there yet. I'm thinking that the page has been moved to a new hosting and the upload hasnt happened yet. Lets hope it didn't expire and loose all the old posts.

It's gone! And we've not seen Tinkergirl for months! What's goiing on on hte Facebook page, I can't view it, 'cos I don't have an account.

Edit: it seems its a holding page, I suppose maybe tinkergirl has switched hosting and not yet loaded the site?

Looks like the domain name expired or something, all I get is a place holder page.
