Hello all, the PIE forums are going to be moved to a new hosting facility tomorrow night - June 24 at 10pm CDT.  The forums will be down for about an hour during this process.

 

I will be assuming the technical responsibilities regarding the site, so any questions or concerns in that regard you can now be sent my way.

 

I would like to thank Takumi for his time, effort, and resources for the many years he has maintained the PIE forums. Salute!

 

The new URL will be http://www.piecorp.i...community/board once the move is complete.  If you hit this link now you will see the site, but it is going to wiped during the move tomorrow so please do not post there.

I'd like to echo that thanks to Takumi.

Under his watch, this has been the most reliable community experience I've ever witnessed.

Even when through the moves, updates, bot invasion and dreaded 'user authentication', Takumi was there.

Thanks mate!

Indeed, thank you Tak for the blood, sweat, tears and soul you have poured into this community over the years. It would not be the place it is (or possibly even here!) today without you.

Of course, I will more than likely be having the following conversation with myself:

So, what was that new URI again? pieinc.info?
No, piecorp.co.uk?
No, pieinfo.corp?
Wait a minute, I'll get there...


Should I never find it again, know that it has been a pleasure to chat and serve with you all ;)

Is Tapatalk still working? I can't seem to find the forum on it, and it still lets me post to the old forum :(

I'm guessing you need to update the URL in Tapatalk.  I will make the old forum read only.  You shouldn't be able to post from the webpages at least right now.

Ok, on the old forum I've switched people to the banned mask, except for admins.  hopefully that locks it down enough until that machine goes *poof*

Great job, both Mitara for actually doing what I just talked about and Takumi for years of keeping the place running. :)

It seems there are issues with resetting passwords, I am looking into it.

Thanks for the kind words, was my pleasure to host this site! I'll help Mitara all I can to help finish off the smooth transition, and of course be on tap for any help thereafter.

Is taptalk a useful app for these forums?

I have no experience with it.

It used to be pretty good, much better than the mobile skin. I find it's far too bloated these days, geared towards social guff and disovery of new forums.

 

Anyway, now that we're moved over, would you like me to allow the pieinc.co.uk domain to expire? Still ages left on the lease, as I recall.

Might as well.  Once the old server is shutdown does whoever you have the domain name through have some kind of 'parking' page or something that you could set to redirect to piecorp.info ?

Set pieinc.co.uk domain to point to the piecorp.info nameservers.
On cPanel for piecorp.info add pieinc.co.uk as an additional domain, but with a 301 redirect to piecorp.info.

That will mean anything connecting to pieinc.co.uk gets directed to piecorp.info (and bookmarks, etc. should be automatically updated)

That sounds like a plan, thanks.
