New Servers
« on: January 14, 2008, 10:27:23 AM »
You've probably noticed the recent unreliability of the servers.  These problems should be a thing of the past!  We actually were already in the process of migrating to new servers when this happened, and so accelerated the process to get things working again.  We've got a new host, a new, very, very fast and capable server, and new software.  Because of all of these changes, there might be a few minor glitches in the site.  If you come across any, please let me know.  The domain name will settle down in the next day or two.  We're planning on doing some significant upgrades to NWR in the near future to take advantage of our new resources, including new forums, so stay tuned!

Alright!  How long ago did this happen?  A few times I've clicked on things in the forums, I've been taken to the whole website's main page, and I think the times are off today, as well, but I've already noticed the better speed.  Thanks!

Edit:  Yes, the time is off two hours from the time I have my profile set to, but only for posts from this afternoon.  My post says it was posted at 9:41, rather than 7:41, for example.  Also, I couldn't leave my profile without putting in a birth date, something that's never happened before.

New forums?  Does that mean HIGH DEFINITION AVATARS?

Silly Pro, the Wii is not Hi-Def.

BTW, is it still Cold Fusion based? Is the forum database going to move over?

The new forums will not be CF based. The database will be converted manually.  I'm not going to worry about the timezone setting since the forums will soon be changed. The random links that take you to the wrong place are probably just something stuck in your cache and should settle down once the DNS update propagates across the internet.

Well everything seems to be okay except that the NWR URL is being converted to IP address.  I'd guess it's move related, just weird is all.

I actually just noticed that. Hmm, was this the backup plan when the Planet Gamecube name changed? Did "74.52.183.162" lose out to "Nintendo World Report"? If so, I have to say, it's a travesty. Just using the numbers.. why, it's numbers, which are universal, thus mirroring Nintendo's blue ocean strategy. And plus, names are so blasé these days.

I think you guys missed an opportunity here, I must say.

They aren't popping up for me, rather, I just see a normal question mark there.

The problem may be one with your computer, browser, or font, stevey, though I'm no expert on these things.  I just wanted to note that I see normal question marks where that thing stevey pointed out is.

I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be a question mark either

Do you guys actually use the NintendoWorldWiiport domain? =P

It'll work again as soon as the dns stuff updates.  I will have to fix it when the forums change though.

I think chat is broken as well, but it's probably just the java applet.  It's not like anyone really uses chat right now, anyways.

LOL I totally forgot about chat on this place. However, Java sucks and i'd rather use a native client.  What is the channel and server for the chat?
Since I don't have Java installed, I can't see that for myself on the chat page.



Any why can I type so far over to the

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.
