AngelsWin.com Forum Move & Upgrade Scheduled this week!

Question

So I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is we'll be offline for a couple hours sometime this Thursday after 2 pm or sometime on Friday for a major upgrade & relocation. 

The good news is, I'm upgrading to the current forum version which fixes a lot of bugs (including no more cookie policy pop-up's @Lou), has new feature enhancements, better performance AND I'm moving the site away from GoDaddy where I've been hosting at since 2013 to a new Cloud hosting solution which also means I will have a secured SSL connection (HTTPS) @John Taylor,and a bunch more capabilities. 

The URL after the transfer and upgrade will be angelswin.com/forums/ like it was way back in the day. 

Nothing should change as far as our logo or overall design, just better features, faster performance, less nuances and a secured connection. 

That said, I'm going from paying $50 to GoDaddy a month to $70 a month and based on traffic, it could go up to $130 a month if I exceed a certain number of unique visits. 

I know that many of you here enjoy AngelsWin.com as much as I do, so I'm doing this both of us. It's an extra $240 a year + an installation/transfer cost, but I think ya'll are worth it. Well at least some of you. ? The ad money helps, but I'll pretty much be breaking even at the end of the year unless something changes. Your donations are always welcome, as is your Ad-free memberships (which I need to audit soon for those who paid for just a year). 

Anyhow, let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them. 

Cheers!

Was the URL Stradlingisalwaysright.com  unavailable?  

 

thanks for the SSL cert.  like seeing the Green URL instead of the red Site not secure. 

Yeah that was another reason to move to the new server. We're 100% secure now yo! 

I also like that we're ANGELSWIN.COM  and then Forums, just like the old days.

Is there any affiliation with The Sports Daily anymore?

Yeah, but we will post our blog articles off of the homepage and from here from now on and secondarily I'll be posting them at Sportsdaily since we're affiliated with them.

lol. No luck for you with Cookie Policy popups. The only recommendation I can make is clearing your mobile device's cache/cookies and disable popups. 

I'm in a new server now and with the latest version so it could be a cookie that's referencing the old site's behavior on your mobile device.

Gotta give @Chuckster70 credit for unknowingly taking the forum down when the biggest Angels story in years comes out, lol.

Actually we launched just 30-45 minutes after the story broke. So it wasn't bad. 

Now signing Joe Maddon or a big FA would have sucked.

My only suggestions would be to add the thread title to the “Next Unread Topic” tab and I would prefer that when you hit the large AngelsWin.com at the top of the page that it takes you to the forums, since that is the most used portion of what we do.  Obviously that second part is just something to get used to.
