When the forum is down you can not access the subtitles section. You may still be able to access DramaWiki and FansubWiki. If you know who is subbing a drama try to find their blog / follow them on social media.
How often maintenance takes place has been changed, and a few other things have been updated. This should make the site run more smoothly. If the forum server is very busy then the forum and/or the search function will be automatically disabled.
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.
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.
See Links of Interest for places on where to find information, dramas and subtitles.
