The only problem with the theory that there modlife isn't ready yet is that they were using modlife yesterday before the outage.
Holly HoX! modlife is kinda hard to explain but it's like a message board/store where people can post videos, sell merchandise and otherwise give news updates about the band.
EDIT: Modlife is a website that connects fans with bands, artists and personalities using live video broadcasts, text messaging, video blogs, mobile updating and Twitter feeds. Modlife's goal is to reward loyal fans and to create a new revenue stream for content creators through a high level of interactivity between celebrities and fans. Modlife’s business model is based on a community of fans who create profiles, leave comments, and engage in live text chats with each other and with their favorite celebrities.
Thanks. I was wondering this as well.
