Upcoming Forum Host Transfer 4/20-4/23 - Please Read

Post by Mowskwoz » Sun Apr 09, 2017 9:57 pm

Hello Everyone!
The Great Lakes Garrison website and forum will be going through a host transfer on or around 4/20/2017 through 4/23/2017. During this time the website and forum will be unavailable. We hope that the transfer will be quick and painless but, when dealing with technology, you never know what issues may pop up. We will do our best to keep you informed of the status of the project on our Great Lakes Garrison Facebook page while the forum is down.

Thank you for your patience and understanding through this necessary move.

Stay tuned to this thread and our Great Lakes Garrison Facebook page for further updates and information on the transfer.

One last reminder! The transfer is scheduled to start sometime tomorrow and could go through the weekend. If you have any events planned for this weekend, this is your last chance to retrieve all of the event details. EC's, you may want to connect with your committed troopers off of the forums via alternative means(Facebook, text, phone, etc...) to be able to keep them informed of possible changes or updates for your events.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding through this necessary host move.

Transfer is complete. The site and forum are now under the management of the Garrison and Base.

I have served as Webmaster and system admin for over 10 years (since before the birth of GLG) and it's time to move on, especially considering that I'm no longer an active member. The baton is being handed over to those who can dedicate the time and energy the site deserves.

Which also means, for long-time members, I no longer have the ability to change user names or titles on the fly ;)

Note: as a result of the move, if you notice errors like images and file attachments not coming through as before, please just upload then again.

Hello all, the host transfer is complete. We are back in business.

Special shout out to Rome "Crimson" Ohnui for completing the host transfer over the last few days. Please join me in thanking him for his service to the garrison as the Webmaster for the last 10+ years. We wouldn't have the much loved TOD tracking system, or the forums that we have enjoyed over the years, without his hard work and abilities.

Thank you, Rome! Enjoy your much deserved and well earned 501st retirement.
