Heads up, we're moving servers

Some time within the next day or two, GTAF (and the rest of the network) will be going offline while we move to a shiny new server (or two). When the new boxes are plugged in, it should only take a few hours to transfer and set up everything. DNS changes, however, might take a day or two to propagate.

 

During the (hopefully short) downtime, you can use irc.gtaconnection.net to get to the various IRC channels.

Sounds cool, they've been running a little slow lately.

 

By the way, about five minutes ago I was browsing Z's private forums and some people had medals under their flags, so I thought a new feature had been added. So I went into Announcements to see if there was a topic about it and now they've gone.

 

What was all that about? wow.gif I didn't get a screenshot.

Which hamster are you going for? The UK2 hamster or the other unnamed hamster?

 

Both were pretty awesome.

I can remember when we got we first got the hamsters. Sure, one was a tad slow, but he always put forth the effort. It's quite sad to see them pass.

 

Good luck with the server swap, illy.

Former release date = Server switch date? Conspiracy theorists, start your engines.

 

Seriously though, the site has been running a little slow. However, I can see a lot of sad little monkeys wanting to get any new information on the old release day only to find dead hamsters.

Well, this is good news. Hope the transfer is nice and smooth, and hope that I'm offline while it happens. And like the previous member said, will the search function be back if all goes well?

Excellent timing! I'll be away in Romania (Transylvania) during the next few days. I wont notice a thing.

 

But yeah, will the server changes bring anything new onto the table?

Damn. I only been here for about a Month or so and GTA Forums is moving already. Well I hope it runs good. Good luck with everything.

That sounds great. Will the search feature be enabled when the new servers are in use?

I hope so.

So those hamsters finally died, huh? You think Petsmart is onto us yet?

Nah, but I think PETA's keeping a close eye. moto_whistle.gif

 

It'll be nice to see the forums after the completed upgrade. icon14.gif

On an old computer/browser/etc, Mark?

 

Anyway, on topic, I'm not sure if I can or can't wait. The forums will run faster, and there's a chance of search being back, but I don't know if I can go a day without any GTAF. cry.gif

You missed a lot of GTAForums history, kiddo. There's already been one transfer before and another time, they shut the forums down for a week because everyone seemed to be fighting.

 

Now that I remember that, it seemed so long ago... wow.gif

That's unlikely, because the only reason that the gang system went down was because of a Forum overload.

 

I could be wrong though.
