New Servers And An Old Forum

OK, so the past few weeks have been less than enjoyable with regard to finding a new server for CobaltApps.com to call home. I may get into more detail at some point in the future as I’ve certainly learned a lot in the process, but after a few miss-fires I believe I’ve settled in with a combo of a Bluehost dedicated server for this site, and SiteGround shares hosting for my others. Included in that latter group is the vBulletin forum which I recently locked down to move our members over to a bbPress forum setup. Well, that posed a few unforeseen problems, among other things, and proved to be less ideal than I had hoped. Also, I’ve since moved the old forum to its own dedicated domain which resolved several issues I was having when it was in a subfolder of this domain.

With all that being said I just wanted to first apologize for moving back and forth with the forums, as well as some of the down time we’ve had on my sites due to the server issues. Most of these issues could not have been foreseen, but I like to be as “steady eddy” as possible for our members and simply could not deliver these last few weeks. But as I said, I believe we’re on the tail end of these few hiccups.

So with the changes mentioned, as well as quite a few members sharing their preference of the old forum setup, I’ve decided to remove our bbPress forum and re-open the vBulletin forum. And if you’ve never used our old forum you can do so by simply registering an account.

So thanks again for your patience and I hope that in the end the vBulletin forum remains a member favorite for Cobalt Apps community interaction.
