Is a question some, but not all of you, may be asking right now. Basically we moved the server over to a new IP. I was told that there would be no downtime, but really I should have known better.

So basically whenever you ask your browser to load a website, it in turn asks your internet provider what the IP of that website is. This happens through your internet provider asking domain name servers etc etc, it's not that important.

Anyway, that data gets stored for a short amount of time, so you don't have to wait to figure out what the ip of a website is, every time you load a new page. This is only a problem if the IP of a website suddenly changes, which ours did.

So yeah basically, the site will appear to be offline for some of you, at the most for a couple of hours. Don't worry, it's all good.

edit: Oh yeah and I forgot to mention: This change should make the site faster! Hooray!

Yeah, I can't access a number of comic sites either.
But at least the main site is up again. :P

My comic's still not loading. :/

Should I just keep madly pressing the refresh button?

restarting your router/browser could possibly help.

My comic isn't loading either, it loads the .thecomicseries.com and etc links, but not my custom IP I set up.

Uhh, did you set up your nameservers as I told you when you set up the domain?

ns1.dreamhost.com
ns2.dreamhost.com
ns3.dreamhost.com

If you used the IP of our old server, then yes you would run into problems. I don't know why one would, though

I'm sure I had the nameservers set properly before, I'll try reverting and redoing it though and see if that works.

It looks like your site works now, so your domain registrar must've done something weird there

Really?

.. If you got an infraction, it's a note that you broke a rule and should not do so in the future if you want to retain access to the forum. Your comic is independent of the forum, and unless you're doing something illegal on it, it's unlikely that it would be affected.

That being said, continually disregarding the rules will result in a forum ban.
