I agree if anybody cant go without the forum for a day needs to be away from it anyway.

Take it down anytime that way it has the best chance of working this time.  :)

Okay everyone ... here is what happened:

1) This morning the hosting company moved the entire gamingsteve.com site to a new server. It looked good so I transfered over the domain to the new server.

2) It seemed to be working just great, the new server was insanely fast and all the back-end systems were just fantastic. But there was an error with the forums...

3) So I tried to fix the error, and it didn't work and messed them up.

4) The more I tried to fix them, the more they got messed up, so...

5) Rather than having the forum down for days while I figure out what went wrong I switched us back to the old server. And now we are here.

So we ended up losing some posts, and for that I am truly sorry. But I spoke with the hosting company for about two hours tonight and I have a nice, detailed plan on getting this up and running on the new server once and for all. Before we were trying to just resync the whole server at once and that simply just wasn't working for some reason. They are not sure as it always works which is why they were just as confused as me.

But now we're going to do something slightly different which should work and will allow me to test the server and forums 100% to make sure they work. This won't occur for several days so for now we're still on the older server.

Once again I apologize for all of this. I have probably lost a year of my life due to the stress of trying to move the server and then having the forum go down like that was almost the end of me. That was very very very bad. But it's up and working now, and we're going to do the move slowly to make sure it works.

Once again, so sorry everyone.

It's cool Steve. I have a way of entertaining myself for the next hour. "What Posts Went Missing?" Hehe.

Suicidal Rabbit still there? What about the Captain Kirk image? Khan? Khan!

So thats why I down graded in my rank, ie my star rank. Last time I remember I had nearly 104 posts and now I have to do it all over again *faceplam*. Eh.. it's ok though, good idea Steve really, that is a good alternative instead of closing the forums for days on end. ;D *Gives Steve hug* No homo ok lol :)

Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Post count isn't everything. Aspire for respect, not post counts.

Who knows, you may be able to pull off both like Patman.
