D-Addicts status

ao_nono2Official Twitter account for D-Addicts.

Forum downtime is most likely caused by a MySQL database crash (or spam bots), it usually gets back online after a couple of hours. DramaWiki and FansubWiki appears to not be affected by this.

When the forum is down you visit the status thread at Jdorama.com. Some news may be posted there.

You can also see D-Addicts status at: www.isitdownrightnow.com

Many of the torrents posted on D-Addicts can be found by searching for them at Bitsnoop or BTDigg. You can also try searching using the  original Japanese/Korean name of a drama. Another alternative is using the search engine Bing.

If you use Bitsnoop / BTDigg: 신의

If you use Bing: 신의 torrrent

When the forum is down you can not access the subtitles index. If you know who is subbing a drama try to find their blog/follow them on social media etc.

Currently a new site is being worked on. Development updates will be posted here. Until the new site is up, see links of interest.

Announcement
On November 19th 2014 D-Addicts closed down its torrent section.

Only the torrent section is closing. Discussions, subtitles, DramaWiki, etc will remain according to Ruroshin’s post.

From now on some will post over at Nyaa. Look under “Browse” and “Live Action.” For other places see links of interest.

At first, when I saw the I announcement I thought, “Maybe it’s an old thread.” I had to double check the date. Sadly it wasn’t. I wish it was April 1st.

And I happened to be the last one. :(

2012.11.04
Word circulate on Twitter that CJ Entertainment America has shut down D-Addicts.

Quoting Edohiguma from Jdorama
Those are just removal requests, including asking Google to remove D-Addicts from the search. Besides, CJ Entertainment has been doing this for weeks.
What we saw was the server not loading, then the MySQL database being gone and now it’s all down. My guess is something got fried big time. Repairing can take a while (especially over the weekend), and usually you wait for any news on that before switching hosts. I’m convinced D-Addicts will come back, it may just take a while.

Brianna hadn’t seen Taylor at all and hadn’t talked to anyone about anything except what as happening with work at the time. It was nearly too much to handle in one afternoon.

Brianna sat down and tapped her pen on her desk. What is he doing? Why would he have said something like that? He knows how I feel. Brianna thought.

It seemed as though she was finally getting things on track. She was beginning to think that as more time passed, she could possibly come to see Tulsa as home. That made her feel happier than she had in a long time. Everything seemed to be on a good path in her life.
