Server Upgrade Completed
« on: July 26, 2017, 08:36:46 PM »
The site was offline for a couple hours this afternoon while I upgraded the server.

If there is something that was working yesterday, but is not working today, please post up in this thread so I can look into it ASAP.

I'm going to be monitoring the server very closely over the next few days as I continue to optimize the backend.

Once this is completed, I will be proceeding with several site updates. I'm excited!!!

Thanks.

John is the owner and administrator of the egameaddiction.com site since he bought it from Bluevoodu a few years back.

Yes, absolutely.

This forum software is severely outdated, and we were getting inundated with spam attacks. It was easier to disable new user registration for the time being.

The biggest change that's about to come is a huge forum software upgrade, which will bring us up to date with something much more modern. I'm currently in the middle of testing the migration out, and will be posting up ahead of time before the changes are made live.

Many more updates to come. I know they are long overdue, but I'm excited for the updates to come.

I have yet to see any traffic increase.  I really cannot tell if anything changed.

Welcome back, John! I'd love to rope people back into the forums if we can...a lot of us keep in touch via Facebook.

Please keep us posted!

I have not seen any new traffic lately.  I was surprised to see that MM had posted!
