quick update

wtaworld is looking and functioning fabulously thanks to amanda and her team

the only thing now is to wait for the DNS settings to propagate before you have access to the site on the new server

the time for this to happen is going to be different for many users.. some can take up to 24 hours...

thanks for your patience... in my opinion it has all been well worth it :)

incidentally those of you who were using the Dark style to view wtaworld will no longer be able to

we have to limit to one style in order to keep updates like this one and modifications easier to impliment instead of having multiple templates to configure

though the dark one looked nice, over time it causes much more strain on the eyes so i chose the lighter one as default... with a few adjustments... the board looks really nice anyway now in my opinion

just letting you know so as to limit the moaning when it comes back up :D

Has anyone got access yet Poe? Can you tell by the hits its received?

I'm at work on our superfast server and it still hasn't worked for me.

Thanks so much for all your work.....I've been a little inpatient (well a whole bunch) so apologies :)

Poesie, is there an IP that you can give us to connect to the new site directly? you know, like http://0.0.0.0 ?

we aren't giving out the IP address because it causes a real mess once the DNS settings have updated... many people keep using the IP (some up to a year later :p) and we can't get them to all change their bookmarks

then when people are having technical problems with certain features we never know if this is a contributing factor, and it interferes with things such as the chat room that require you to be logging in from the wtaworld domain
