After several years of service, the BF3s.com has retired.
In Nov. 2013, the server hosting BF3s experienced a catastrophic drive failure forcing me to rebuild all of my websites. Many of the sites had lived well past there prime and faced with having to rebuild them I decided to let them go and look to greener pastures.
The forums have been left online and running for now, and I don't have any plan to shut them down.
