Thread: The Forums have been moved

  1. Default The Forums have been moved

    I just completed migrating our forums from our old web server, Slag's Lair. It was about a 5 hour process that started around midnight last night. The old server has been hosting these forums for over three years. Slag's Lair also used to be our private Unreal Tournament server back as far as 2000. It was also our local file server for the several LAN's hosted by Arx many years ago in Chicago. So it's definitely done its tour of duty. Slag's Lair is being fully retired over the next few weeks. I hate to see it go, but all things must come to an end

    We are now on some newer technology and the system appears to be fairly snappy. We should be in good shape for quite a while now.

    Please note that during the migration, I found some corrupted records in our database. The corruption appears to have been isolated to sometime in the afternoon yesterday. So a few posts may be missing from yesterday, but I think that will be the extent of it. Please let me know if you find any other issues. Sorry for any inconvenience that may cause.

    Also, attachments are not working at the moment. I'll get that fixed later today.

    Welcome to our new webhost

    Yay! I access the forums from everywhere a lot, but it was so tedious to go through CI's lump portal. The new URL for 'em is so much easier to remember/type!

    It was "http://www.ciwow.com/forums", now it's "http://www.ciwow.com/forums". Subtle but different.

    Please be sure to update any bookmarks or favorites you are using to the new URL. I already had one bonehead thinking the forums were still down down
