I don't want to get banned but there is another help forum I use almost as much as this one and I keep getting a 404 error when I try to go to it. Before I do something stupid will I get in trouble if I use it's name as I was wondering if anyone heard what is going on with it?

Thanks Gecko, the site is pc help forum and as mentioned when I try to reach it, it says

"404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

just wondering if anyone had any info on what's going on as I saw no posts on their site last time I was there about them closing or shutting down.

It's been several days.

From what I see pchelpforum.com is resolving to the default IIS Server installed screen that links to Microsoft. All other links to their site pages I found return the 404 error you mentioned. The domain is registered until 2024, however a tracert times out on the last hop.

I'd give it a few more days to see if it gets fixed.

I found that it may have changed from .com to .net. not for sure but going to pchelpforum.net takes u to a site that use's the same logo.
