Yes folks, it’s time for the forums to be moved to a new server. This process should only take a few hours if everything goes smoothly … if not, it could take all night (and possibly some of tomorrow).
This website should be unaffected by the move, so keep a check on here and I’ll try and keep you all updated as to how I’m getting on.

UPDATE 1: 25th Dec @ 23:00
So far things are not going as planned. I have the forums copied to the new server, but for some reason the templates (i.e. how it looks) are not working. I have been trying for hours now with no luck, so I think it’s time for a sleep and I’ll tackle it in the morning.
UPDATE 2: 26-Dec @ Midday
Things are looking a lot better now – the main templates are working, and now it’s just a case of going through ALL the forum settings to ensure they are correct (as the latest forum software didn’t inherit the old settings in the upgrade process). So, hopefully a few more hours work, and you’ll all be able to get back on the site 🙂
UPDATE 3: 26-Dec @ 14:50
We’re nearly there! I’m just performing some site maintenance and then a quick test of the forum itself. Then, you guys and girls will be free to log in 🙂
