    Amibay.com is moving home

    This evening Amibay.com will be moving home and joining us here on the classicamiga.com servers.

    This move has been planned for some time now and finally it is taking place tonight at 11pm GMT.

    The move is due to the existing Amibay server host no longer being able to keep up their original level of service quality. Their servers are now over subscribed and slowing down under the weight of the number of different user hosting accounts on each of their servers. This has caused issues with Amibay slowing down at random times of the day for certain users, and the server failing to always send out automated email notifications to site users.

    Fingers crossed the server move goes smoothly this evening. If all goes well Amibay.com will be up and running on the classicamiga servers by midnight tonight!

    I'm pleased to say that the Amibay server move went smoothly and Amibay.com is now sharing its home with us on here at classicamiga.com.

    Amibay is now running much faster with much better page load times and site access.

    Now that this is complete it might open up some exciting cross site possibilities in the future.

    I didn't visit Amibay for at least a year now.

    Great work mate. Looking forward to see what the future has in store for both sites.

    You should pop by Amibay more often, Demon, as there's quite a lot of good stuff to be found there. Many funny and interesting discussions as well.

    I'm pleased to announce that the migration of Amibay from phpbb3 over to vBulletin 3.8 (same as this forum) went smoothly towards the end of last week, and the final template updates and mod installations are nearing completion.

    Everyone seems happy with the move to vB. The site is noticeable faster than phpbb ever was, and the moderation tools in vB make administering the site so much easier and nicer.

    Pop over and have a look when you get chance, and let me know what you think.

    Into the future, once vB4 is released I want to look at how Amibay and classicamiga can more closely share some resources. Such as knowledgebase for hardware upgrading and fixes. All that is to come in the future though.

    I got a friendship request on AmiBay from Harrison, but when I try to log in, it says that either my password or username is wrong, but it isn't. Were usernames deleted some time ago?

    There is a notice on the front page of Amibay explaining that all passwords were reset when the site was migrated to vBulletin. You should have received an email from the server with a link to reset your passwords.

    @Sarek2K

    You have a couple of PMs. I reset your password and fixed your registered email address on amibay.
