A mailshot in the new year is planned.
Went in to spam and it did come across as very spammy/advertorial. Doubt it would do much to get people back, I'm afraid. IMHO, of course.

Re: Another crash

I agree, however, we don't know how many we have lost through the crashes. @theoptom Can you send an email blast out to folks to acknowledge the issues of before and promote the new and improved? If it helps, tell them MTP said it is worth it.

Re: Another crash

It's certainly moving along nicely. Did Santa leave us a more reliable backup procedure under the tree?

Re: Another crash

The problem is they all can kind of look as good as each other. Yeah it's a problem. I have no experience with Azure/AWS. Just had a chat with these guys and was impressed: https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/webhost.uk.net Has everything I'm looking for except the green credentials but I can simply o...

For reliability I wonder if it'd be worth looking at Azure or AWS?

Re: Another crash

Still seems incredibly sluggish. I know that the recommendation for DNS server changes is 1-3 days, in my experience, of late, though, it's rarely more than 12 hours.

The failure rate does seem very high, who is the current host?

Re: Forum image upload options

I definitely think it would help, boss. You're way, way over-estimating the IT abilities of folks. Plus, if you're hosting the photos it avoids the situation when photos are taken down by random free hosting sites and the, if you're looking for something, and it's in an older thread the whole thing ...

URL's posted aren't now automatically hyperlinks (I'm guessing they'd need the URL tags).

The backup seems to be about a week old. The host has deployed a new server with a new setup (I assume that's a good thing). Let me know if you notice any issues.

Anyone who signed up in the last week will have to re-register.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
I think EyePics is broken, boss.

Re: Recent outage July 2019 - server hardware failure

Is there not a way that the database could be backed up more frequently? I can't believe that it would be that large a file, given that the bulk of it would be text. For example this mod: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/auto_database_backup_2/ In saying that, the backup file should stil...
