WE HAVE MOVED BACK TO NewHosting!

Post by GoldStar611 » Sat Nov 02, 2013 5:55 pm

As an ongoing effort to keep all of us UAF's together in an enjoyable environment, we will be moving from some bad hoster to new hoster.

The final date will be December 1st, 2013 when my never ending "contract" expires/renews.

During this move you may experience some strange issues like we experienced last year or the year before (wow how time flys)

Please add my email address to your contacts list if you need to reach me directly.

Feel free to ask any questions here

It's going to be a bumpy ride!

I just recently uploaded an old version of the fourms and wiki to Net Firms. For those interested you can play around here:



I will be making "the switch" at the end of the week. During this period, WebHostingPad files will be marked as inactive so you might have some problems getting to the site for a few days while your ISP updates its files.

You probably don't recognize the forum anymore...but it's still here.

I am making it clearly evident that we have made some sort of switch. Please let me know in THIS THREAD if anyone has problems.

Attachments seem to be broken. No other problems noticed at the moment. Great job!

Now the main address (forums.metropolisdawn.com) points to the old site even though earlier today it went to the new one. Was that intended? Or has my ISP messed something (DNS etc..) up?

I figured it would happen that way.

There will be a period of 1 or 2 weeks where things will be screwed up such as

http://www.metropolisdawn.com
metropolisdawn.com
forums.
files.
wiki.


Eventually they will all be updated, it will just take some time. The old forums don't exist any longer. I have deleted those files. So you will get 404 error or this site

The list where you could see all those user ranks has been missing since the update. Is it possible to get it back?

I guess its address was "forums.metropolisdawn.com/factions.php" but I'm not really sure, and that address doesn't work.

I thought I would never find it...

It's available, just not linked

memberlist.php?mode=ranks

I'll see about getting it put back but it will likely disappear after another update

Oh, thanks. Luckily it didn't disappear completely.
