    Also, we're going to need new banners for the new styles for the forum!

    They will have to be wider.

    Hey for the past few weeks I've been unable to access the forum from my home internet as my service provider inexplicably seems to have blocked access to BF. It pretty much means I can no longer post as whilst I can browse the forum on my phone, writing long posts on an iPhone just isn't practical. With the domain switch this weekend is there any likelihood that I'll be able to access the forum again or is it unlikely to make any difference?

    Hmmmm it depends has your ISP blocked it by domain name or by IP address? In the second situation, it will be lifted as the IP will change, as will the DNS. But if it's the domain.. then for the first year we will have a solution for you (there is a temp extra domain for now), but can you contact your ISP to ask them WHY on earth they are blocking this site?

    Oh ok well a year is better than nothing as I think I might be moving in a few months anyway I have been putting off contacting them as they are a real pain in the ass but I guess I might have to. It's just very strange. One moment the forum was working fine then it started to get very slow and then I just couldn't access it at all. I can't imagine why they'd suddenly block me from accessing it.

    hmm that is weird. Well maybe it's related to the host we are on now (which is the pain in the ass reason we're moving, they suck beyond words and have absolutely not understood what the word 'service' means...)
    Let's hope that Sunday or Monday (depending on how long the DNS change takes, it can take up to 24 or even 48 hours, but usually 24), you will no longer have troubles getting here. And otherwise we'll give you the other domain name.


    Of course, you being in Australia, this means we'll start on this at Sunday night, and thus for you it will definitely be Monday or maybe Tuesday.

    Oh you will know when the DNS has moved, because we will close this forum, and then after the migration and upgrade the other one will be open.
    Then when the DNS has done it's thing and point towards the new webspace, it will be open.
    So closed forum is old host, open forum is new host

    I did contact Lunarpages and they said the IP wasn't blocked at all and think it's the ISP who have blocked it.. hopefully the move will mean you can access us again

    Will the new forum use different coding for replies, in terms of [spoiler*][/spoiler*], or [quote], etc? I'm just wondering in terms of replies I am drafting....

    Nope Everything will be moved to the new forum, that's why this one will be closed, otherwise people will keep posting after we download the last database, and those posts would be lost.
    The new forum will look a bit different, but it's still the same software, just a version up

    I was wondering about logging in. On the old forum I never had to log in again after the first time but even with the "remember me" option activated I still have to log in every single visit now. Is that the way the new forum works or do I miss an option?

    Thank you Rosely for all your work ahead of time to make this transition smooth and to only keep the forum off for a couple hours instead of a whole day.

    Lots of stuff is still going on behind scenes, the forum will move slower today while this is happening.

    We are also still editing and working on styles for the forum. I know we all miss the old ones we had for ten years. (I am in mourning for our old blue and green styles). They didnt work with this new upgrade which we had to do now. The styles we are using are not the only styles we will have and I hope we can edit at least one style to be more streamlined like previous ones.

    Have fun exploring! If you need help, ask in here!

    Lydia made the punch!
