Thanks for bearing with us, there has been a lot going on behind the scenes with the transition in hosting of the forum and we wanted to update you all on whats been going on and what still needs to happen.

 

We have a new server to run the forum, have taken backups of the current forum and are in the process of restoring the backups to the new server to ensure that it all works as expected. We've bought the IPB licence (software that runs the forum) and are using this to test that all works correctly.

 

We've set up reliable external cloud storage for automated forum backups which will be scripted to run daily, and as part of the process we will also regularly test restores from these backups to the test forum to ensure it all works as expected in the event of a serious problem.

 

The next actions are for some testing to be carried out on the new server to ensure that the backup restores correctly, then to cut over to the new server for the 'live' site. Stanky and Slartibartfast have a plan for this which should only require about 15 minutes of downtime and no lost posts, timing of this will be announced once we are ready to make the change and we'll give as much notice as we can. The plan is for nothing to change on the surface as a result of this changeover.

 

Once the changeover has taken place we'll get a sticky post added to the top of the main forum with a breakdown of running costs and a link to a GoFundMe page for those who wish to contribute. We'll also welcome suggestions for improvements going forward.

 

 

Again, peeps, this has been the hard work of Stanky and Slartibartfast, and Mike is still helping us out.

Appreciated and thanks, but it really is down to the hard work of Stanky and Slarty. As Nettyhair correctly spotted, they know what they're typing, we're just messengers!

Excellent. What are the running costs looking like going forward? Not after full profit-and-loss accounting, but would be nice to have an idea so I can have a think about what to contribute.

It'll all happen. It's looking positive.
