On the off-chance that someone else might have missed it...

The old URL for Swordforum (http://forums.swordforum.com) does not seem to function anymore, but the forums are still alive at http://www.swordforum.com/forums/! Now on to update my bookmarks...

Regards,

Well the new link works for me and I'm using SAFARI 4.0.3 if that information helps at all. Question

that'll teach me to not read the messages before they do a server change.

Thanks Vincent!

The link does not work for me, either. I can get the home page but not the forums.

Are you ensure you are linking to the new site address or defaulting to the old one ? What you describe is what I was getting from my internet provider: An error message saying it couldn't find the site of the Forums.

Try putting the new link in your favourites but also delete the old obsolete link just in case your computer is getting a brain cramp.

Or, it may be a browser issue ? My best guesses but I'm not a computer geek. Wink Big Grin

Actually, it does not seem to work from wher I am now either Worried The errors are weird enough...
(Technically, I'm pretty sure the DNS servers are a bit confused right now between the old and new server).

I guess the update is not going quite as well as expected, maybe the situation will be more stable later...Anyway, the URL I gave is still the one that appears on the front page of Swordforum, so it must be somewhat correct Wink I seem to be able to get to a moderately functional version of the forums with this hack:
http://65.49.17.240/forums/
But I don't expect that to last permanently.

Well, the new URL now takes me to the main forum index, but I can't access any of the fora themselves. Worried

They're both working for me now. There's an announcement up that they've been having some difficulties.
