Something changed! [Board moved]

Postby Zechiel » Sun May 20, 2012 4:21 pm

Hi guys! MAJOR CHANGE!

The remnants site has moved from http://www.ffremnants.com to remnants.alterblade.com!

The board was running on outdated software and the board itself was open to various forms of attacks. I could also do NO maintenance work since the site was at its very limit in server disk space. (The database is 40mb zipped!) Plus the hosting provider is charging an insane amount of money. (A new hosting provider won't allow all the custom server changes the old website required, unless I have my own rackspace.)
So now I'm using my alterblade.com website to host the board. AlterBlade has plenty of space and a very good setup, so things will work great. The AlterBlade www site is under construction, you won't find anything there.

So what changed?
  • Upgraded from PHPBB 2 to 3, which is a major leap forward! You'll notice loading times will be much better.
  • All the remnants exclusive features are gone, such as the point and drops pages. Thats not such a biggy since the site wasn't used for such purposes anyway. I will post all the endtotals in a new topic for your legacy ;)
  • Don't worry I still have all the data backed-up, if need be I can set up the old site again.
  • Your login credentials are unchanged.
  • All data has been transferred, including your PMs.
  • I will lose the incredible ffremnants.com google ranking :(
  • I've added some extra spam countermeasures.
  • The forum style changed. I didn't want to invest a lot of time in recreating all the old templates for the new software. So I picked the most important stuff, like the header and icons hahah.

Other than that, everything works kinda the same.
