New web host is live. Goodbye, Bluehost.

We're working on transferring over the remainder of the uploaded images (user avatars, etc) right now, but everything should be up and running other than that.

The new web hosting team is an absolute joy to work with. Without naming any names, they also host a site that rhymes with 'Greasy PainBaker", and they came highly recommended.

In short, you should expect to see almost no downtime in the upcoming year, as well as improved page loading speed and snappier response times all around. Thank you for your patience, and thanks for the tip Mr. Baker.

    Thanks Webstey! Working great now!
    Sorry for submitting a help ticket..... I hope the boss doesn't dock you too much pay for any adverse effect my submittal has caused. I'll pay you back from my substantial 2016 AG winnings!

    Much more responsive. Nice!

    I noticed during the transition you are running on MySQL. If you ever need a hand with anything DB related let me know, I worked for the MySQL company for 5 years and currently work for the founder's new company.

    Agreed @Aaron Webstey ! Pretty massive performance difference already, too.

    Yeah, the speed difference is even better than I'd hoped. I'm impressed by these guys.

    Ohhh - and I was logged in when I got to the page, and didn't have to log in again or refresh it to make it recognize that :)

    Congrats to those of you who discovered that the forum sort of works. The site is a bit wonky but it should be all good tomorrow. I swear to you, this short term pain will be worth the long term gain. I love you all.

    I take great satisfaction in knowing that 99% of our community had no idea who Bluehost is. And now they are synonymous with incompetence.

    Kudos to Webstey for being our punching bag. You probably all know that what he does is invaluable. Not only is he the best dude you could ever meet, but he's put just a ton of work into this venture. I only hope this thing continues to grow and that I can put a few dollars in his pocket.

    Thanks everyone for your patience during the changeover. It was a sizable investment, but we're now in great hands. If a server/host/whateverthefuck is good enough for Ray Maker and his 3 million monthly visitors, it's should be good enough for us.

    Onward and upward.

    Thanks Webstey! We will try not to burn it down while you are working.

    I'm in Canada for work and somehow feel more forgiving.

    I'm sure you noticed that the thread view count is static.
