As many of you have certainly noticed, MaBiWeb has been down for a few days :(.
On October 31 the site has been blocked by the host provider for "excessive numer of emails sent". This probably means that the recently increased number of email notifications due to the addition of a new game (Shadow of the Emperor) triggered some kind of automatic check and they thought that the site had been hacked and was actively spamming.
I immediately replied explaining that those were legitimate mails sent to registered users but just to be sure and avoid issues I had disabled notifications entirely and so I asked for the reactivation of the site. I never got any reply other then the standard automatic ones ("your site has been compromised, please upgrade your scripts to the latest version, bla, bla, bla"), so I decided to move to a different hosting provider.
It has taken a while but now we are back. A little more patience will be necessary as I'm still working to sort out some issues and glitches (different environment, different PHP version, etc.). Games are currently still blocked, I hope to reactivate them soon.

Thank you all for your patience,
MaBi

Update: I have reactivated the games, please tell me asap if you notice something wrong.

thanks Mabi......we appreciate the behind the scenes work. I also hate transitioning websites especially when PHP versions are different. Always a glitch here or there.

Thank you all for your support, but there is really no need to thank me, I'm doing all this for a purely egoistic reason: to be able to play the games I like. The fact that you can play too... well, that's just a fortunate consequence :).

Oh, and you HappyProle, you shouldn't be here wasting your time, you should be at SpielByWeb, busily working at Maharaja :).

This must have been extremely aggrevating for you. You have my sympathies. Thank you very much for your dedication and hard work in producing one of the web's best game sites!
