    Hello Everyone,

    To provide the optimum environment for this forum, I will be moving destee.com to her own dedicated server. I'm planning for this to happen within the next 7 days and for the forum downtime to be minimal, perhaps 3 - 4 hours.

    I know what 3 - 4 hours with no forum does to some of my Sisters and Brothers, so I've loaded a TEST FORUM at the URL below. This TEST FORUM will be much like our new one, with all of the added features, including Private Messaging other Members who are logged in.

    http://www.destee.org/forums

    This TEST FORUM will be up until after our move is successful. You are more than welcome to sign in on the TEST FORUM, post messages and become familiar with the new features. I welcome your suggestions regarding it as well. Keep in mind that none of the posts on the TEST FORUM will be kept. They will all be deleted when the new forum comes online. It is for TEST PURPOSES ONLY.

    This is all new to me (Server Administration), so prayers are welcome.

    I'll be sharing another announcement with you prior to the actual move.

    If you have any questions just ask.

    Thanks,

    Destee

    Thanks For the Love

    I also want to send a special thanks to Sherykah. She's been helping me troubleshoot the board, learning the new features and teaching them to me. Our thread is there and I'm sure you will find her notes helpful.

    Thanks Sherykah!!!

    Wow ... yall are so good to me!

    Thank You!

    Just wanna provide an update to this thread ...

    We're not moved yet!! :cry:

    Still trying to coordinate the move of this database to the new server. Hopefully in the next day or so.

    Basically what will happen is the current host will tell me they are ready to move the database. (I could move it myself but they don't provide telnet access).

    I will then close this board down and prepare for the move.

    With this in mind, the notice may be short (if any).

    If you come to the site and the discussion forum can't be found ... you can hang out at destee.org/forums for a few.

    Gosh ... I miss yall.

    Destee
