    Hey Everyone,

    I'm planning a change of domain soon, probably going to register a .COM domain for this website. Since this has turned into more of a webmaster community than just specific to forums, I'm going to get a webmaster-like domain name.

    If you have any recommendations, please PM me with them. Do not post them on the open forum, I really hope you guys do :)

    Anyways, along with a domain change, I will also be change servers, same provider, just different server. So there might be downtime, I'll try to warn you guys but it might just happen for a few hours to a day.

    Anyways, that's it :)

    PS: Welcome to the new staff member Dr. Deejay, who has agreed to moderate the forum board. He is very knowledgeable and I know he'll do a great job as the board moderator!

    Sent you a Pm on what I think would be a great domain. It is rare that one like this is actually available so if you don't take it let me know and I will purchase it and add it to my collection for a possible future project.

    I also have a few here for sale if interested.

    ;)

    Like i said, if you don't use it I will take it.

    The domains I have for sale are:
    SMFDESIGNS.COM
    SMFHACK.COM
    SMFHACKER.COM
    AMERICANAUTOCLUBS.COM
    AREUFUCKINGSERIOUS.COM
    RUFSERIOUS.COM

    I had a few offers for PRIVATEGOSSIP.COM but they are not big enough for me to consider since I have big plans for that one.

    ;)

    The domain and server is going to be changed within 24 hours.

    If site is not accessable, you know why ;)

    You need to put a forward on the old domain and also announce the change at the websites that you mentioned Forum Scripts on so people can find the new site.

    ;)

    How about something simple? You will need to alter the header area height and logo size in index.css to match.

    I went to the old domain first before coming here, and got the 404 error message. "Quoth the server: 404" is a poke at Edgar Allan Poe.

    Allegedly by Edgar Allan Zilla:

    Oh wow, now I get it :p

    Anyways, contact my host, said there was a problem with the Litespeed websever, they are looking into it.

    Hopefully everything gets better.

    It doesn't match the domain name, but I'm otherwise okay with it.

    Hey, did you do F5 refresh? You might still see the old banner due to Cache.

    I changed it to one that says SkriptMaster because the domain is now http://skriptmaster.com

    Aha. No I did not do F5 cuz I thought it was enough to hit the circular arrow thingie on my address bar. I just learned sumpin here. I see the new one and I'm cool with that too. I for one know I can't beat it.
