When getting onto the site, will the UGO "Click here to proceed to *Insert name here*" pages come up?

Nope, just the actual banner ads.

As for the banners not being there, yeah, using certain programs or settings you will be able to hide the ads, although we need people to see them to pay for the server tongue.gif

This is great, i am good at getting shoutboxes if you need one, and i can get rid of pesky ads, but this will be very good for the site. You will just move the site over there right, or are we starting over?

To clear up any concern, all that's happening is the site will be literally copied onto the new server. Nothing will be deleted apart from a few posts from tonight and the banners will be added. Everything will be the same as it is now just on a different (faster) server.

He said everything would remain the same. And I doubt Psy would change the URL of the site. But do correct me if I am wrong.

Not sure what the biggest is, but GTAforums has 40,000 plus members. I'm sure the site will rock, and a few new ads never hurt anyone. I've never had a problem with them, the only things that are annoying are pop-ups, but Psy has already said we won't have them, so it's all good happy.gif.

I am the person responsible for providing the new hosting for this great site.

The first and most major part of the move is complete. This involved moving the database to the new server, and then pointing this server to the database on the new server.

The final step is now in Psy's hand which involves him changing the DNS so that the web pages also move to the new server.

Until the DNS move is done (should be complete by tomorrow) the site might not be as fast as it potentially could be. This is because the web pages are drawing the database from a different server. For the technical minded out there this makes sense. For everyone else, just sit tight as within 24-48 hours things will be faster than ever.

And yes, just to re-assure everyone. The only change you will notice will be the the two ads (one at the top, one at the bottom). No name change, no URL change and nothing else. This new server will give Psy the ability to really grow the site to its full potential.

A big thanks to Psy for all the hard work!
