In case you didn’t notice (although I am sure some of you did) we had quite some issues with uploads lately. Although the limit was 20 MB, some of us who tried to upload anything close to 16 MB couldn’t, so we had to split files larger than 10 MB to two parts, something quite non-convenient. Plus, the site was a bit slow sometimes or even went down for short periods of time. In two words, our current server proved to be unreliable.

All of the above led us to change hosting. The switch will take place this weekend, so you are kindly advised to NOT upload or post ANYTHING during next Friday-Saturday-Sunday, or your work and your posts will be lost.

We will be back on Monday with a new server, a faster speed and a glitch-free operation. Your old uploads and posts will still be there, so don’t worry. Unless we do :)

Finally.

While you're at it, you can do something about the file type upload limitations (no uploading of 7zipped files for example).

 

Also, this might be the right time to tell you that I have inherited the domains bb4win.org and bb4win.net (.com sadly didn't make it), but have faced trouble making them point to this site via dns entry
