Server Crash and other issues

Postby ali » Wed Aug 06, 2008 9:48 am

Well as some of you probably noticed, the site crashed. Don't ask me how, ask our hosting company :roll: Aparently they had our server pointing to a different domain name or something strange. Either way, I fixed the problem on my own and we are up and running now.

I also added a special redirect so that from now on when you link or type http://www.e36-tech.com into your address bar, you will end up at the forum automatically. This will help us eventually in search rankings and things like that. I am working on getting a lot of search engine optimization things going here. Its tough going with work and moving. I apologize for any inconvenience the site being down may have caused ya'll. Please also keep your suggestions coming! They are always appreciated!

I spent the night without The Tech in a lukewarm bathtub with a bottle of Vodka, debating whether to start opening up veins. :evil:

Thank you Ali!!!!!!

During the last two days at work ive been stuck on bf.c, reading all the retarded posts by the kids on there. Not having The Tech for those two days truly showed how great having this site is.

thanks again ali, if my memory is f-up, this is only the recent couple of incidents and other than that it's been fine.


we need a recruting campaign before our one year anniversery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I remember like it was yesterday, I was up real late, vacationing in the cool mountains of NM. I had a fishbowl size margarita and was with my older son messing around on our laptops and we started the membership campaign that night, i must have sent out 50 pms on various forums.

haha abe and I probably sent out 500 between the two of us. Those were the days. I remember our first super big spike in members. 600 in the first month. It was crazy. 45% of those were spammers haha. Thank god we upgraded to phpbb3. No more spam.

Hopefully weekly/monthly newsletters will eventually be a possibility. That should bring more people in. Not to mention sweet give-a-ways lol.
