Server Upgrade Notice

Recommended Posts

Saru

In response to the ever growing demands on the server due to Unexplained Mysteries enjoying it's highest ever traffic these last couple of months, and to combat the problems that have been causing downtime, slowness and other issues relating to high traffic, a new, more powerful server is now on order to which we will be transferring in the very near future.

The new server will fix all the server load problems, allowing speedy and problem-free access to the site. In addition it will allow me to expand the site considerably, with many new planned changes and updates which have not been possible before.

The transfer to the new server should not create any periods of site downtime, however during the final stages of the changeover, the forum will have to be disabled temporarily to prevent data being lost after the site database has been transferred. This period should not be more than a few hours, however.

More details will be posted nearer to the time of the changeover.

I've never been too keen on the idea of asking for donations, the adverts on the site help to fund all the server costs.

I'll keep the idea in mind though Scar, thanks thumbsup.gif

He is very selfless when it comes to financing his site, I can't begin to imagine the expenses he has incurred over the years. That's why I always link to Amazon.com from his site when ever I make a purchase there, the return isn't much, but every little bit helps. thumbsup.gif

What about those who are on low income who can't afford to pay? How can they access the site? Also, I live in the UK and have never heard of Paypal, until I got on the web.

Alot of people would lose out on a brilliant website

I think that is a brilliant idea, I hope you do setup a paypal account so that people here can pitch in for all that we have gotten from this site. For a year now this site has added a great deal of entertainment to my day while I sit at my desk working away. You have created a wonderful online world for everybody to be a part of that deserves to be supported.

I run several websites and I can't even fathom how much bandwidth you use here...oy. wacko.gif

Don't worry, i have no intention of imposing a compulsary fee for site access, UM will always remain free to use. thumbsup.gif

Thanks to everyone here for their support, it's much appreciated. original.gif

Server Update

Our new server has been set up and i will start configuring it today. We should be transferring over to it before the end of the week if all goes well.
