The little forum that could
GC is back up to 3rd position now...that's fast.
I hope GC got to 1st, GF got to 2nd and I'll be happy trailing behind in 3rd hehe

My host told me they shut off the old server to serve from the new one (supposed to be faster) and that the transition would be seamless but doesn't look like it.
I already notified them with the same screenshot.

hopefully it won't take as long as GC!

Turns out it wasn't my hosts fault.
My ads service (ezoic) was pointing to old IP.
I just updated it to point to new server's IP.
GL is back up (but might be flaky for another 6 - 8 hrs because of DNS propagation).
And also any post done yesterday is lost because it was done on old server and that IP is suspended now
and I think i lost a single member sign up
oh well at least it's not longer.

GL is now all the way on page 4 of search result for "gimp forum" now...
looks like it's hard to stay trailing behind http://www.gimp-forum.net.
I wonder if it's because of the site problem yesterday.
falling from 7/8 place. down to page 4 hurts my feelings

The GC problem did help... There is a noticeable increase of posts/day since Jan 17th. And it stayed that way even after GC was back on track.
