Over the next 24-48 hours, we will move our website to the new infrastructure. This is an internal change, you will not see any difference in look/feel/experience. Only difference will be, at peak times, the site will function normally instead of the heavy lag we used to suffer.

Once we initiate the move, the forum will not be accessible for up to 2 hours. So if in the next 48 hours, you find the forum inaccessible, do not be alarmed, know that it will be back in less than 2 hours.

Nice. But I wish there would be few differences in feel/look.

What's on your wishlist?

Our priorities for this round is for site stability and performance. No more slowness at even peak times.

Are you guys taking wishes?

Lets see. I've some. Let me think this through.

- Mention system. Someone qoutes you, you get a lil notification. I've seen many football forums have that. It's kinda cool and handy in this twitter age. (Priority 2).

- I'd bring back tagging at the bottom of the thread. (P1).

- A message/shout out box at the bottom of the forum homepage to cut down all the crap and off topic in threads. (High priority).

What else? I had few good ones. They'll come to me.

I strongly second that.
I've been meaning to make this request for a while.

It helps to follow up.

^ I'm sorry I didn't get that. As posts piled up I totally lost track of everything that went down in last couple of hrs.

The forum will be taken down shortly, and once the move is complete, everything should be as is, all in less than 2 hours.

<h1 style="color: red">BC Downtime</h1>BanglaCricket.com would be offline tonight at around 6:30pm EDT; 4:30AM BDT; 10:30PM GMT for major server upgrade and migration (approx 1 hour from now). Downtime may stretch several hours, and at times server could be completely non-responsive.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

- Team BC

And special thanks to Nasif - who sacrificed many hours of sleep and jeopardized his marriage to do the major brunt of the work during this migration.

Yes, Nasif did a near impossible task in a very aggressive deadline, and delivered amazingly.

Thank you Nasif.

Huge Thank you to Nasif for yet another successful move. It would not have been possible without the HOURS that both you and Mahmood bhai have spent moving us to our newer and (I hear) cuter space. Thank you.

Will take this opportunity to thank all 'BC Karigors' for giving us a place to practice cricket, a place where we feel we belong. And by the way I have been happily enjoying the new look BC mobile version for last few months.

Acha.. I don't see the preview of top 10 posts in the main page. I am not sure if this is the way it is going to be from now on or it just changed with this upgrade.

You might have experienced BC outage little while ago. This is part of BC transition to this new environment. As we stabilize BC, please do bear with these small growing pains.

Thanks.

It was an unexpected incident; nothing to do with server load or users.

I think because of the server change the fonts in article (unicode?) got messed up again. Such as this:

Good catch - my edits do not seem to be taking.

Nasif

It's the smart quotes from MS office. Those are in different code point in Unicode. We had this before, I actually have post on this; let me see if I can find it.

I don't think it's due to server move. Those articles always had that.
