Haha belated April fools (I hope!)

Late tomorrow morning I will be removing the www.nogoblinsallowed.com site, and the entire forum will remain on forum.nogoblinsallowed.com as it has been for a little while now. Hopefully, this will result in no change whatsoever, but if there are any links you need to update, or any baby pictures that you absolutely cannot afford to lose, I recommend doing so in the next few hours.

Thanks,

Sarah

Remember to swap out the links and stuff you have in places like your sigs. Its as simple as changing the "www" to "forum".

For instance if you signature said:

Code:
If you are interested in contributing content to [url=http://www.nogoblinsallowed.com/viewforum.php?f=40]The Creative Corner[/url]


It should now say:

Code:
If you are interested in contributing content to [url=http://forum.nogoblinsallowed.com/viewforum.php?f=40]The Creative Corner[/url]


Otherwise you'll link to a dead end.

So when is this happening or what happened?

2 days later the old site is still up, so Jack is just curious.

Google always seems to return the old site as a the top search result. Since that's the case, should you redirect traffic, or maybe provide a link from the old site's mainpage to the new one.

Hmm... that is potentially worrisome.

The old site's main page will still exist, however; it will just be different as soon as we can get everything worked out.

Indeed.

When the forums were moved over to the new address and we started with some of the issues of essentially having the code running in two places, as separate entities, simultaneously, I mentioned that the old site should be taken down to skip running into more glitches in the proverbial matrix. But that rather than pull the rug out from under the community the http://www.nogoblinsallowed.com address should still be something, even if that something is simply a white page that says "In preparation for the launch of the front page our forums have moved here: Link"

This would keep all the links that people have sewn across the net coming back to at least a page that links to the forums, and would still have all of the cached information that's stored at Google not go to waste, as well as making the launch of the front page a much smoother process.

A redirect should be in place now.

If anyone has any issues please report them in the Metaboard's Bug Reporting Thread. Thanks to Welder again for some awesome work.

Cheers,

~Sapper
