Hi All

I am looking to migrate the electricferret domain to a new webhost. My current webhost's pricing is too expensive and it looks like it will be a lot cheaper for me to move into Amazon's EC2 cloud. And who doesn't want to save money, amirite?

Anyways, I'm not sure exactly how this is going to go down but you should probably expect it to occur suddenly. All the interactive features of the site will be taken off-line, probably for several days. So the site will not be much fun for a bit.

Thanks!

Will we lose the characters in the database, or will those just be tranferred over?

When is this change happening? Will it still be "Electricferret.com"?

Will I still keep the title I have even though it should have been removed months ago? D:

Move to Amazon EC2, huh? In light of today's events, I'd be a bit wary:

GameFAQs, the number two gaming site in the world, is also down:

So... is it done? I'm a little disappointed. Thought it would look different or something. Oh, well.

As if I know what that entails. Not like I've been a part of a Forum that's had one before. Not to mention, all kinds of things were different the last time...

Yes, that's generally how these things go. It takes five working days for me to make it a non-event for you.

Heh. I hope you're not offended, Fox. It's just that the last time we had site changes, all kinds of things were changed, as I mentioned in my edit. I was expecting a somewhat similar event.

Huh? Where did my intra-maintenance posts go??? After I bragged in Mibbit about being able to post during the maintenance and everything... Now they'll all think I was trolling... :o :P

Anyways, I guess we can just about return to the status quo now.

However, if anyone wants to get back at me now for mocking them for talking to bots, I guess this would be a good time. :blush:

Ooooh, new features already! *points of bottom of forums page*

I won't go into detail, though, as I'm sure Fox would like to explain things himself once maintenance is done.

Yeah, I'm installing the upgraded Tropical theme which is compatible with this new board version. It will return in the options shortly along with a new Dark Theme.

Hehe, I figured it was something like that, but still thought it was worth posting. Especially since most people seem to either dislike the tropical theme, or simply prefer the others :P

I'm liking the new dark skin.

And the light skin.
