We've made updates and improvements

As always, we've been hard at work improving our forum.  The recent changes are aimed at usability and performance. 

Here are the highlights.


  • We moved hosting yet again
    • We're now hosted with Liquid Web, canceling our contract with GoDaddy, for an improved server hosting environment
    • We now have immediate and professional support
    • We upgraded our server CPU and platform
    • We upgraded to SSD's for speedier file access
  • We moved our backup routine to Amazon S3 to ensure reliability, stability, and ease of access of backups
  • We installed redis and are using it for our memory caching service
    • This drastically reduces the amount of time the server requires to pull cached files (sessions, css, etc)
  • We revamped our CloudFlare settings to ensure speedier access from around the Globe


  • We removed the ease of quoting posts to ensure content is linear and compact
    • This is a quality of life improvement to ensure those using screen readers and similar have a friendly browsing experience

We will continue to improve our service and community.

A big thanks to all of our moderators, volunteers, members and subscribers for making these updates possible.
