In the cases I've seen, when sites get new servers, it's like an upgrade, not a whole new site. Backloggery got a new server a while back, and it's no different than what it was, with the exception of being faster. So basically all getting a new server means is speed.

Basically this, there won't really be a speed increase except in certain cases (100% club is faster). Standard profiles will go back to auto updating once a week and hopefully there should be almost zero maintenance now.

Thank you for your hard work and for the update as well. The zero maintenance is seemingly the best part of the server upgrade! :)

Will probably move tomorrow after I wake up, it's taking a while to archive all the trophy cards, 50GB of them :P

Does that mean that the manual update once per hour will be removed?

Not really sure how you're coming to that conclusion, but I don't think anything about what you're talking about will change.

Sly, you're the fucking man. You are by far the most involved owner of a site I've ever been a part of and I think I can speak for all of us when I say we really appreciate the constant status updates to let us know what you're doing with the site. Keep up the good work.

If you ever find yourself in Kentucky, I'm buying you a beer.

Transferring the site files now, 96GB. Once that's done I'll do a quick transfer of an updated DB (forums and stuff), point the domain to the new server and turn off forum posting on the old server. One cool thing though, the forum chat will work cross server, you'll see the same people no matter which server your DNS is connecting you to.

Is this why I cant tell which trophies I actually have? As I click on a game in my profile and the normal green border around the trophy doesn't appear, they are all grey.

Yes, that's why. It should work fine when maintenance is finished.

Yes, that usually happens when there is maintenance.

TBH, it's the first time I notice that, but I might have not looked at it before.
