Thread: We're moving to a new host!

    Exclamation We're moving to a new host!

    We're moving to a new host! Our current host has too many issues and too much downtime. We thought we could resolve this with an upgrade to our current server, but that is not the case. So we've picked a new host that has stellar reviews and is optimized specifically for vBulletin forums!

    Migrating servers can mean a few kinks in the works temporarily, one of which is the domain transfer. This could take a few days, so expect some down time. It may be a few hours, it may be a few days- it just depends. If the site remains online, I'll update here. Otherwsie, watch our Facebook Page for updates during down time

    Woo! I wasn't sure if the site issues were just that or my shoddy wifi. Glad to hear of an upgrade, and here's to hoping the adjustment period is short!

    So there were some bumps in the road getting everything set up and the domain transferred over. Also with Malinghi having time to start working on the move. So it is taking longer than we thought to get this done. But better to take the time and get it right

    Don't overwork yourselves!

    Thanks guys! We've transferred the domain fine from one host to another, and are redirecting the domain back to the old server until we can get set up on the new sever. However there are some technical things that are tricky so there have been errors and hitches. Like right now people are getting locked out of accounts by what we think is something funky with the URL redirect between servers. If you can't log in, don't try and reset your password just yet (it won't work anyhow), just check back to this thread and our FB page for updates.

    Haha, whoops. I reset my password, but then after it didn't work, I accepted defeat and just decided to bide my time until the server stopped goofing with my account.

    Oh, I don't mind. I'm just glad to see it wasn't because someone else was trying to log into my account (which is initially what I thought happened because of the message I had received).

    Quick question...could a setting have been changed where one would stop receiving all notification of followed threads? I don't think I clicked the 'unsubscribe all', and I KNOW I didn't verify an unsubscribe. I was just wondering if that could have happened behind the scenes.

    I don't think it would cause something like this, but I don't know enough about how the domain name transfer works to say for certain. But I really don't think that's the cause. Have you tried changing the settings back to how they were? Did it have any effect?

    I didn't change anything, unless it's something I hit inadvertently while browsing notifications on my phone. No worries...I'll just check back on occasion. Thanks!

    Same thing happened to me about two days ago I think! Since then I've had no email notifications
