Thumbs up SCMB Web Host Upgrade Completed

Hello everyone,

If you attempted to visit the site yesterday evening, you likely got a note that we are upgrading the boards. While they still look the same and all features and functions remain the same as before, the boards are now completely on a different web host and much quicker server. In addition to tremendous speed improvements (no more "hanging" when you post), our account gives us a lot of flexibility and options to further expand.

Yes, some of the vBulletin images are different, I am working on restoring everything as much as possible. You might notice the IP address in the URL now - that is just temporary until the sports-central.org domain propagates to the new host. This process takes 24-72 hours.

How is the speed for you? I notice significant improvements all around.

The main site has propogated to the new servers for me today. One known glitch is the forms aren't working on the new server. We're working on getting this resolved as soon as possible.

I think this was a good move, Marc. The forums are MUCH faster.
