Forums online, news to follow


Recommended Posts

Steven P.

The upgrade took longer than expected (a lot of post data to move over and resynchronize) We decided to open the forums and news will be converted over in the next 24 hours.

For some this is neowin.net and for others it will be neowin5.net until the DNS has completely changed over.

Enjoy, because I'm tired and am going to bed now. :)

Definitely, we really appreciate it! It seems to be running quite fast atm, though of course it'll be a few hours before it gets a real load and we can see for sure.

[edit] www.neowin.net works for me, but all the forum links take me to www.neowin5.net... Love the quick edit in-place editor, btw :)

Congratulations on getting it up. Unfortunately, for me at least, the pages are loading slower than they ever have, taking an average of 15 seconds between clicking a link and the page actually beginning to load. And yes, Neowin is the only site this is happening with.

I'm assuming it's a DNS issue with my university connection so let's hope it's all sorted by tomorrow :)

Perhaps DNS, :unsure:

I tried to re-upload my Avatar but it did not work I think cuz it uploaded it to neowin5.net/forum/uploads and we are going to be going back to neowin.net/forum/uploads.

Give it time. :yes:

Yeah same here, i think its just the new servers getting updated.

And Neobond, or any of the other admins. When would the best time to subscribe? when its all finished? or once the servers get updated fully?

Forum is fast! Is neowin5.net the new site domain or is it still going to be neowin.net?
