While the forum was down i realized how helpless we were. That there was hardly anything that i could do to get the site up and running. I was able to reach a few through facebook and finally Nasif bhai was alerted and was able to fix things.

I had an idea meanwhile to create a forum for times like this. It is in the link below. I am thinking when the forum goes down we can all continue discussing over there. Check it out.

BC is our home. But if it burns down we go there. So stop being a homophobe and join up on that gay looking forum as well.

It has more members than the Test audience. lol

In the coming months Myself and perhaps a few volunteers could set this backup forum up with banners, sections etc. We will see how it goes. I am done playing one of the helpless Sisters in a haunted orphanage in BC. We eventually need a place where there will be enough administrators to keep it running properly.

WHY CAN'T WE MOVE TO THE NEW FORUM PERMENENTLY???

The new forum looks very nice and the outlook easy???

If it has similar features like BC, why not move there?

SportingBD

I was thinking the forum will sink.. when Aklemalp and other members was loading the match thread with pictures after pictures... I am sure the size of those pictures were big..

SportingBD
February 3, 2018, 05:25 AM
I can ask all the members in the BC WhatsApp Group to join the new forum..

If I decision to move permentantly is made.

Perhaps a better name for the website also?

Someone has to make a decision from the seniors if we are permanently moving there or not?

Seniors = Mods/Admins? do they not have to make a decision if we move to the new forum?

Night_wolf
February 3, 2018, 05:45 AM
No, mods and admins dont have to make a decision here because these two forums can not be merged . its not like our house burnt down and we need to pack up our bags and move. If members here like that forum better and start to post there often eventually that will become the new place for BD fans.

at this moment that forum is a Back up forum if BC crashes.

I like the idea of a better name by the way. Bangla Cricket Fans sounds like a cheap copy of India Cricket Fans

To answer your question. That forum is created on a free creation tool and i dont know the pros and cons just yet. Smart thing to do is just to have an account there and continue here in BC.

I think the best thing to do is everyone to bookmark/add to favourites that website.
It's not easy to remember (I don't think we will find it in Google search).

Like if BC goes down, it will be hard to find that forum. Best Bookmark/add to favourite

I will join soon IA.

Yo, ma man.

The forum was perfect when we posted those pictures.

I've observed that the forum started malfunctioning when the countdown clock hit zero.

I was on at the time posting in the match thread....

Think of it as a vacation property that u can go to from time to time. Few others and myself will invest some time and keep it smooth and running. If people actually show interest i will invest real money of my own and buy all the plug ins and fancy features and take that forum to the next level. For now this is just a backup for BC, which is our real home

When the cricket forum went down, we’re discussing in the BC Whatsapp Group about a new cricket website/forum.

This is what I wrote on that Group:

“Like we formed a company by investing X amount each. Let’s say £100-£150 each (can reduce the value if more members interested). That would be 20 members (as an example, could be 100 members) times £150, Total capital invested £3000. Than we use that money to start a cricket website/forum, hire Journalist from Bangladesh. Get the website running. Earn money from advertisements etc and share the profit amongst the (investors/shareholders)”

If you plan to do something like this in future, please do let me know :)

Technically, the forum wasn't down. It just got slower. I felt as if I was traveling at close to the speed of light. Time slowed down.

3000 pounds is a lot of money. I dont think domain registration and getting a website up and running will take more than a few hundred dollars. But i would rather have this discussion the next time BC goes down. Meanwhile just bookmark your vacation home and register :-)

If the cost is £1000 or less that is even better!
Would mean 20 members have to only contribute £50 each.

Let’s see if BC goes down again. We can talk about it on the other forum.

If the problem is our server admins not having enough time to spend on site maintenance, can we encourage them to migrate the forum to a managed version of vBulletin? vBulletin Cloud (https://www.vbulletin.com/en/vbulletin-cloud) doesn't seem so expensive, and it shouldn't be difficult preserve data as we won't be changing the forum software. In case something goes wrong, regular moderators/admins would be able to get in touch with vBulletin support to resolve the issues.

IMO, that would be much more preferable than forking the forum into "regular" and "backup" sites.

It wasnt a server issue guys. It was just an external api(scorecard on the forum front page) that crashed which caused the site to keep fetching the data that wasnt there and choking the server. We should all thank Nasif for figuring it out quickly.

Nah man there have been a couple times it has crashed ever since I've been here. The last crash almost erased 6 months or so worth of data and accounts created within that time period.
