Drunk Leo is holding his stuff pretty good then.  Game threads are the real test though.  If Merle can handle the LOL Miss game thread, that will be win

Can our Admin change the thread title to Austin Allen's Cock?  If so, then put me down for 10 inches, at least.

Shit...Verotik's got the board up and running over there already. Going to see how much work it is to get the themes going. Either way, we might be on Merle (I guess) tomorrow. Or tonight...if he keeps busting ass and taking care of everything.

The new serve is Merle.  This server is Marvin due to our desire to shoot it in the face.

I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.

It's up an running over there...Verotik's wrestling with the theme. I'd do it but I've been home a total of two hours at this point. Not feeling up to it.

Once everything's in place over there, we'll take this board down...take a copy of the database at that point and move it over. We've got to upgrade this one we're shutting down to smf 2.0 to make moving the database easy. 2.0 is running on the new server.

We'll bring the new board up shortly after that and change the ebays settings to route traffic to the new server. Sometimes that takes up to a day to resolve for everybody. But I'll replace the board with a page that says we've moved...which is what people will see until their dns resolves. On that page, I'll also do instructions for Windows people to force their computer to go to the new ip address for woopig.net. So you won't be down at all really.

Really should be sometime tomorrow. Wednesday at the latest. Even if we have to run some lame theme for a short time...we'll be on the new server.

It's not over yet, but thanks to all who have contributed so far...either technically or financially. You guys help keep my hobby moving along.

 :cheers:  Well kiss my old ass and call me shorty!  Great job, guys.  I got a little misconfused because I didn't have the "localhost name resolution DNS :: 1 localhost" bs, so I just typed the IP address and teh woopig at the end and it worked.

Obviously this isn't the theme we're going to go with. The real one needs some tweaks. But it's there for you to choose if you want.

Click Profile up top...then click Modify Profile...Look and Layout...click (change) out to the right there next to Core. Scroll down and choose Woopig4.

You'll see the tweaks I'm talking about.

What do you drink when you're hitting refresh, waiting for your woppussy fix?  I can't afford that expensive shit.  :beer:

Is it supposed to be black on black in some areas?  The worst seems to be the post reply page.

Heaven Hell.   :D

I lol'd.  That's prolly cheaper than cheap cognac.  I usually go upscale and hit the Boone's Farm.  :D

If you want to contribute...just paypal something to payments@woopig.net. It's running a tad higher than we planned....but we're getting a way better server.

I'm now a woopussy contributor.  I'll be checking my email often looking for the activation code for paying member features/services.

Go into your profile, look and layout preferences, and choose "woopig4."

Version 4 seems to have no "show new topics" or "show replies to post" options.

That was turned off earlier, and won't be turned back on for a bit.  It was part of the problem on the old server, but will come back at some point.

I was about to post the same thing when E posted how to get it semi normal.  I did not post about the blue part because I am afraid of waffels.
