    Forum Access Issues

    To make a long story short, we're on our way to a new host.

    We've simply outgrown our current plan by leaps and bounds, which is why we've been experiencing the outages we have these last few months. Considering these are happening in November, you can only imagine what would occur by the deadline or playoffs if nothing were done about it.

    It's more money, but more security, so if you ask me, the trade-off is quite fair. It's simply the cost of doing an ever-growing business. And we are ever-growing.

    The site should remain up and accessible during this migration process, however there's still a chance it could impact us before the move-over is complete, so please just bear with us for a few days. This should all be done by mid-week, and I'll try to keep everyone posted on pertinent information as it's available.

    If anyone has any questions, just ask here.

    Can you just give us the general thrust of why the current provider can't handle the current load, increased security, etc. ?

    How many people are active on the site for Game Thread Days, which I presume are the heaviest-trafficked ? Did you guys experience a surge last Spring when the Rangers went to the SCF -- and did many of those folks stay, necessitating the switch ?

    I thought most websites/message boards could handle tens of thousands of posters/viewers/etc., and I thought we were just a few hundred at most -- am I wrong ?

    Yes, I can, but I won't. It's not relevant information to the general public here.

    But I can tell you, the issue isn't over number of users (though a minimum number is required to reach critical mass). It's over number of users at one time.

    OK, good luck with the switch.
