The return
« on: April 26, 2010, 04:47:44 AM »
Today, CrowsTown begins its (hopefully triumphant) return. After taking a machete to the database to cull out the old domain name wherever possible, and doing some voodoo magic, it looks like I've gotten the site up and running again at the new domain http://www.crows-town.com (just the dash - is new). Please note that for the time being there may be issues using the site without the www, i.e. just crows-town.com may be problematic. So use http://www.crows-town.com.

So far I know for certain that the forums are working. I haven't yet tested the torrent system at all, but please feel free to do so and let me know if it's not working.

I will be continuing to tweak and monitor the site over the next couple weeks, and expect to have everything back to normal(ish) by the middle of May at the latest. For now, enjoy the forums, and anything else that works, and let me know about things that don't work.

Welcome home. :)

I've just tested the torrent tracker and it does not appear to be working. There is also an error after you post a message, though it does not seem to have any serious effects at the moment. So that's my next task. In the meantime, post, y'all!

Awesome job. Sucks that it wasn't set up for a smoother transition but thanks for the effort.

The Shoutbox display on the front page of the forums is currently not updating. It's taking low priority for now until I get the tracker going again. Some other small issues have been fixed though.

Also, the "forgot password" email function, and emailing in general, may not be working yet.

Tracker appears to be back up. Please test!

The shoutbox is temporarily removed from the front page until I can get it updating again.

I was thinking the same Sandra, perfect timing because the proboard is playing up for me too.

Plus we have ghosts here :yeah:
