I've set the wheels in motion to upgrade C3VR.com!

1st, we'll be moving to a new server.  
The sever we are currently on is about 7 years old.  In Dog years, that's like 49 years old! So it's time to upgrade to take advantage of the newer technology - faster operating system, faster processor, more powerful database.
This will be done within the next week and will require the site be down for some time.  Not sure how long, but when I have a better idea, I will let everyone know.

2nd, I'll be recreating C3VR from the ground up.
I'm going to start with new 3rd party forum software that takes advantage of all the latest programming technology, including a mobile friendly version for all mobile devices. I'm working closely with a 3rd party vendor right now to get that started.
This will take some time to build. Maybe a few months. Once complete, it will require some down time to transfer over to the new site, but should not require much down time.

I've decided to do this in light of the issues some users have been experiencing lately, in order to hopefully make their experience with the site flawless.  

Also, everyone will benefit from the faster speed and more power of a new server.  (You'll see this benefit soon).

So, stay tuned for updates and thanks for your patience and support during the upgrades!

Well, sorta.  The site it self will serve pages faster, but that doesn't mean people will slow connections may not benefit as much as those with faster connections.  And image downloads will still be the same.  However, the new forum software does have automatic resizing of images as they are inserted into posts.

That re-sizing will help.  But will it let you drag an drop pictures into a post?  That would be handy if it did.

C7Registry.com
CorvetteClothing.com

Have all been moved to the new server.
I'm working on getting C3VR.com over there, but am running into some issues that need to be worked out first.

Stay tuned!

I think I have all the kinks worked out. It serves up pages SO much faster! Now I just have to transfer all settings over there. I hope to be done by this coming weekend. Please continue to bear with me, and enjoy some more popcorn while you wait. :D Thanks.

C7VR is certainly faster now, but it doesn't have to load the ad graphics. Kewl! Can't wait to see what happens next!

Honestly, that's not going to make much of a difference. Those image files are very small, even if the banner is big.

Getting closer...

Moved SaveTheWave.net and VetteBookStore.com tonight.

I also continued to move more settings for C3,C4 & C6VR over to the new server.  Man are there a lot of settings to move!  I'm getting closer to "the big move."  It will likely happen this weekend.

I have to shut down the VR sites, move the forum posts and member database over to the new server; move the email over there; then change the settings with the registrar - which is the last piece of the puzzle. Changing the registrar settings make it so when you go to C3VR.com you'll be taken to the new server. 

After I take down the old site, when you come to C3VR.com you'll see a message saying that a change is underway and to try later.  Once the registrar updates complete, you'll automatically be connected to the site on the new server and you'll once again see the site.

This may take 24-48 hours to complete.  (But really, it'll be the weekend and you should all be out enjoying your Vettes (or working on them) instead of hanging out online. :)

Please bear with me as I work hard to make everyone's experience with the site better!

Thanks for your support!

This is pretty funny.

As I'm working on creating the new/mobile-friendly site, I came across this thread!

Some funny things...

This thread was created 7 years ago.  
In it, it says that the server is 7 years old.
It talks about upgrading the server. And about upgrading the website to be mobile-friendly.
It is now 7 years later.
I just completed a move to a another NEW server a few weeks ago.
And I'm currently in the middle of creating a mobile-friendly site.  (Guess I never did get around to doing that part 7 years ago). But I am doing it now! Trust me.  It's coming this time!
