Wangan Midnight Expressway Forums > Announcement Board > Server Migration (2011-11-01)


Posted by: E86 Oct 25 2011, 11:23 PM
As some of you have probably heard, the plan to switch to a new host had been well underway for the past few months. Why are we changing server you ask? Well, forums activities had declined dramatically since mid-2010. There just aren't much traffic hitting the forums. At $25 per month for server fee, our funding dries up rather quickly despite many of your generous donations. As a result, I approached our host thewird to negotiate for a better rate. However, that fell right through. The rate remained at $25/mo. despite the decline of bandwidth usage.

As a last resort, I started looking for a different host that offers the same service with a smaller price tag. At last I found it two months ago. At $15 per month, the new host offers the same service with unmetered webspace and bandwidth. One of positive things that comes out of this server migration is that WME and IDW will no longer keep a separate donation sheet. Like the old way, the donations are shared.

With that said, the forums will be temporarily unavailable for roughly 36 hours starting 8:00 am Pacific Time, Tuesday, November 1st, 2011. I will keep you all posted on the server migration. Please check back for more info.

  • Tuesday November 1st, 2011 08:00 AM (Pacific Time) - DNS change initiated.
  • Wednesday November 2nd, 2011 11:00 PM (Pacific Time) - DNS propagation completed, forums re-open.

$10 is one hell of a difference.

All hail the wise king of WME E86.

DNS transfer has been completed for some ISPs in California and Canada. For the rest of the world, it'll take another 24 hours to have everyone back on the same page.

Oddly it has finished for me, and you know that I'm from the Philippines...

maybe this one is of topic but i can't download any of the soundtrack from the list, it just keeps redirected me to the initial d's forum page. Is this also happens to other or is it just me?

I just checked the links, everything's fine. Are you using any kind of download manager? If so, try right click and save as. We have hotlink protection implemented, if you try to download the songs from another domain, it will redirect you to idforums.net. smile.gif
