    Forum server move! Please take note....

    Hello all! If you read my last note about my gallery site moving, you may have realized that the forum too will be moving. Please make sure you have your bookmark saved as www.terraforums.com (the www is necessary for some features to fully work) and if you notice an error or the forum is "gone" it's just the natural process of everything getting moved. All the data will be moved, followed by the domain so there shouldn't be any data loss... just the delay of the DNS pointing to the new server location... but if some recent replies or newest posts end up missing, I'm really But it's all for the better!

    Thank you for being so awesome.

    Not sure. The new company provides free move. So I'm going to opt for that. :-p If I get a time/date ahead of time I'll let you know. But I assume it will be a "give us your login details and we'll get to it" kind of thing.

    Most importantly. Don't come here and see an error of some kind and think I'm gone forever. LOL Something happened long ago when I first bought these forums and was doing upgrades, that caused it to go down for a bit of time. It took a long time to build that membership back up.... :-\

    Ok I think the main part of it is done... Sorry it was almost a day. :-\ may be some more short outtages.... But I doubt they'll be for any real amount of time like this. BUT could still include loss of most recent posts/replies when the final database copy is moved.

    Thanks!

    P.S. 24 registered members were looking at the forum closed note when I opened the forum just now. That makes me feel really really bad.

    Well, it says the DNS is moved already... so I opened the forum. Hopefully that's right, it is kinda confusing to check since both servers currently have the exact same copy of the forums on it. LOL


    So I guess if you see anything strange happening, please let me know so I can check it out.
    Thanks!
