Moving Twilight website to a new server...
« on: December 02, 2008, 07:22:50 AM »
In the last few weeks ive been trying to add and improve some aspects of the site for all of you, but Im not running into a small wall of sorts of a technology limitation on the server back end. The current server is running a slightly older version of Linux which is limited in what other applications it can run for things like this website. Because of that, little small features of the forum are disabled, things with the main site are as well, different things I want to add are not possible, and I finally had enough of the headache of that limitation and am buying and setting up a new server.

Im trying to get this done before the new year comes as I also want to release a new look and feature version of the main site as well as some other things but my time line is limited based on how quickly the new server arrives.

Basically v3 of the site will have a new look as well as new options for guild members, signature image generators, the Blogs will be in full effect for all members who want them, small improvements in performance and little nifty features of the forum like Spell Check (*cough* Arc), Video Streaming capability and so on.

Im just letting you all know now as during this next month, whenever the new server arrives, I will be having to work hard to migrate everything over to the new server in a short time to avoid paying extra fees for IP's and whatnot with the ISP. Because of this there may be some sporadic downtime between moving things and I wanted everyone to be aware its for a good cause. Ill do my best to avoid any downtime, but sometimes no matter how hard you try, stuff still breaks.  :-\

Holy crap don't scare me like that Shadow. I saw "Moving Twilight to a new server" as "Alexstrasza is overfull so we're going to one of the free transfer realms."
