I was using the old site yesterday. Couldn't get on it today. Kept trying throughout the day. I was on ParallaxBill's and I saw a post about the new site. There was no link. Just kept reworking the old address. My short-cut that I used to use clearly was the problem. I am back now and glad to be here. Lightening fast. Just wondering did I miss some announcement on the old board about the move?

I think there are a bunch of Lost Members out there. I was emailed by several who asked what happened to the site; the link is dead. It's too bad that hitting the old link doesn't redirect folks.

I think that if you had a shorcut that took you to the forum and not the home page you did not find it. Only after reading the post on ParallaxBill's did I try in earnest to locate the new site. Really not a new address but I am sure many people used shortcuts which did not go to the home page but to the forums. This saved paging. Also I never received an e-mail.

The speed on this site is absolutely incredible.

I believe that the DNS (Domain Name System) records got updated faster than expected. In non-geek terms, this means that the old links were suddenly no longer valid as they were "pointed" at the wrong machine.

Old link didn't work and gave one of the "page doesn't exist" messages. I just typed in www.gunboards.com and navigated like always.

Web browsers actually tell you a lot in the error messages. You just have to look.

Every one of you who could not find us had made two errors.

1. You never went to Gunboards.com and hit the forum link

2. You never read any of the annoucements posted on the old boards about the move or the password issues.


Shame Shame....:confused:
