Events

New M6 Forum

In February 2006, the old M6 forum is now in error and either never or can return. After the old M6 down, it has new forum that currently used today.

M6 Down

On March 19, 2008, the whole website around the world was down and already dead that can cause installation of M6.net.

M6 Recovery

On April 10, 2008, it has been recovered by Test 080410.

New Official Forum

As of April 2008, the new official forum is Orbiter-Forum.

Blocking of Orbiter-Forum

On April 3, 2008, Orbiter-Forum was blocked in some parts of the Philippines. When the ban will be lifted is unknown. The government of the Philippines does not black-list any websites, but the internet provider of the Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philipines(CBCP), cbcpnet.com, established it's own black-listing of any sites related to pornography, gambling and other things, which they consider unethical. It is very likely that the blockade of orbiter-forum.com is related to their activities and can be avoided by switching the provider or by using onion routing software.

This does not mean that orbiter-forum is unethical. It is just enough to share the same address in the internet with an unethical website. Orbiter-forum does not run on a dedicated server.
