We'll be moving to a new server (we are now on the new server!)

Hi all,

Just a quick note to say we’ll be moving to a new server within the next month or so.

There will be two separate instances of downtime, the first will be when we move the forum to the new server, and the second will be when the server is physically moved into the location of the old one (this is so we can keep our existing IPs - we’ve built up good deliverable/rep on them so it makes sense to keep them than start all over again).

We’ll set our DNS server to cache our entries for no more than 1 hour to help speed this up but if you find the forum is unaccessible you might want to flush your DNS caches.

We’ll post in this thread before each step and/or leave a note on our Twitter when it’s imminent :023:


Just a quick note to say we’ll hopefully be moving to the new server over the weekend as it’ll be one of our quietest periods of the year.

If you’re an avid participant in our giveaways, please obtain all entries by Friday - we’ll switch them off a bit earlier this month as it’ll save copying them over to the new server.

Just FYI, the Devtalk link on the page is not functional.

If you can see this… you made it to the new server :023:

If you notice anything that’s broken, please let us know in the Forum Help/Feedback section. Thank you!
