Google Cloud Move


Hello,

We wanted to reach out and let you now that we will be moving the site off our current hosting platform to the Google Cloud. There may be a period adjustment, but we are hoping that this platform will provide a more reliable environment for the community. As we get closer to the move date, we will update this thread to let you know.

Please report any issues in the Staff or Community sections you normally would and we will address them ASAP.

Thank you in advance

Your Community Management Team

Hey y'all. This has already happened on most of my sites, so I have been through this before. If any issues occur, I will be on top of it. I will let ya know when this is live.

This move has been completed. You may have noticed the site down for a few minutes during the move. I am checking everything out, but if you see issues, let me know in this thread.

Could have sworn I posted that I wasn't getting email notifications either, but low and behold, it's not here.

Re: Google Cloud Move


These are the current known issues.
  • Email notifications not working.
  • Contact us emails not working.
  • Favicon (.ico) missing. (as seen in bookmarks and tabs)
  • Wrap icon for bb code (strike) in advance reply broken.

I will update this thread as these issues are resolved.

They may still be cached for you or it may depend on the browser. It is gone for me and displaying the default vBulletin favicon.

I agree, it is running rather quickly. Granted right now probably isn't a peak time as far as traffic but it's loading fast.
