Hey folks, as some already know, we moved ASN's forums to a dedicated server last night. ASN has become so popular and so heavily trafficked that shared hosting was no longer an option. The good news is that we should be able to stay up and running without interruption during even the most exciting Avatar events (premiere's, finales, and so forth).

In the meantime though, you might notice a few things awry. For example, the smilies aren't working yet and the "report post to moderator function" messages aren't getting to the staff. Please PM us for now if you see something that the staff needs to address. We are working on these last issues and hope to have them resolved soon.

Later we will be moving the rest of site to our new dedicated server and plan to roll additional functionality when the move is completed and everything is stabilized.

Thanks for your patience, and we hope you enjoy the improved performance and reliability this move should bring!

Smileys and avatars are working fine, now.

We currently are not receiving emails from the forums.  The primary impact on users is that things like the "forgotten password" function won't work and you won't recieve notifications of new posts or PMs if you have that configured for your profile.  We'll get it fixed as soon as we can, but that may take some time.

Email is all fixed.  The forums should function perfectly as before.  The only continuing inconvenience is that the url forums.avatarspirit.net and chat.avatarspirit.net still won't work.  You can always get to all ASN functions by clicking on the appropriate option on the left and right columns of the Mainsite- www.avatarspirit.net.

The subdomains should be working now.  In other words you can get to forums using "http://forums.avatarspirit.net" or chat at "http://chat.avatarspirit.net".

We're still sorting some other stuff out.  We apologize to folks for temporary interruptions of service.  If you experience anything other than brief losses of connection between about 8pm and midnight PDT, please leave a message in the "new server" thread on Bison Whistle.
