I third this event is happening to me to. I have to refresh, goback, or open a new browser in order to get on almost all the time. I hope this is just because the updates though and are fixable.

Yeah, the site has been a little slow/ glitchy for me as well, but nothing that I can't bear
So does the new host mean that we get more smilies?

hey Guys!

Sorry about all the instability! It is indeed due to the server move.

Here's the quick and dirty rundown.

The site is growing by leaps and bounds every month and our server bill is starting to rack up. Our current (or old as of 2 weeks) solution was working great but it is expensive monthly and upgrading (which we will have to do soon) is pricey. I am exploring more reasonable options that are not only cheaper monthly but also allow for more reasonable upgrade prices.

I had high hopes for the current solution we are on but I'm afraid it isn't working out quite as well as I would have hoped for. Don't want to go into too much detail but I lose alot of control that I had before and the service although in theory should be even better than before, doesn't quite work out that way in real life.

Hang in there!

Take your time, Kyle. I just renewed my subscription, so that should help at least a little
