We've been noticing some issues with the website (errors and slowdowns) and contacted our hosting provider who said our website could be moved to a newer server. That move is in progress now and should be done within an hour. The database server that runs our site is separate so the only thing that may be affected by this move is if someone tries to update their profile picture during the move it may be lost. Thank you for your patience.

I've been moving through the forum pages with no troubles... perhaps you all should not log on so freakin early... you're waking up the computers and they're sleepy still!!

For whatever reason the move never got completed as we were told (it initially appears to be a problem with the host), so we're on the same server that we've been on for years.

We're working on getting it moved yet.

Keep in mind that there are many factors that affect the speed that the pages load, and only a small portion of that is related to the host.

I'm fairly sure that if I say in a month that we've moved again, we'd have 5 people say that it's faster and 5 say it's slower when in reality we never moved. Smile

If you're seeing actual errors when you try and load a page (something out of the ordinary) then please post them here or let GeoPierce or myself know via the contact form.
