RE: Host Switch
Hey everyone. As many of you know, the site has been experiencing some issues lately due to us switching hosts. I'll try to explain here a bit why these have been happening.
There is a process called pagination that must occur when you switch hosts. This process essentially is giving the Internet time to update everything associated with the site. This usually takes up to 48 hours to complete and this is why everyone was probably experiencing behavior that looked like two different sites. Because of the problems this process was causing, I decided to just shut the site down completely over the last couple days to allow the process to complete. Unfortunately, there were some threads and posts that were lost during this process and there is no way for us to restore these. Again, I apologize for this. If I would have been aware of this process from the beginning, things would have been dealt with differently. Although it would have been nice to not have had this happen, our new host will provide much better service than our previous one and should make fogpog an even better site to be a part of.
Hopefully everything is working fine now. Thank you to all of the members who have posted and sent me messages about the issues and kept me updated about what you were experiencing. You guys are what make fogpog what it is and remember, this site is for you. If there are any other problems that arise, please let me know. Thanks for your understanding.
