New Server: Thank you for your patience. We moved to our new server. Everything should be back to normal EXCEPT for the Gallery. We will have that restored shortly and will make an announcement. If you see something that is not working please report it here: Server Upgrade.

Server Upgrade
« on: December 06, 2018, 03:38:02 PM »
Dear all,

The forum will soon be changing from a shared server to a dedicated server as part of our upgrades. This will improve the speed at which the forum works. It will also allow other parts of the forum to work properly and improve further upgrade work to be done.

This will mean that when the forum is being switched over you will not be able to post for about 24 hours (although hopefully less!).

Many thanks for your support and the forums success,
Tank.

Should be happening from tonight.  The technician is making a backup of the forum as we speak...which is now at 50GB.  A big site!

I have been informed that it may take 48 hours.  Best to get it out of the way before the busy weekend!

Correct! As stated at the top, the gallery is not yet uploaded.  That's about 45GB!
