I do have one question. Will this new server mean any changes in allowed content?

Are you sure? You might have forgotten about it since I first started sending those out a couple of months ago to give everyone enough heads up. You can read the message here, and it seems you've indicated that you have already made the required change.

No

Yeah I did it as a seperate more in-your-face notification because I know from experience that some people don't check their notifications at all

Nice! Honestly, I thought the server had moved before, when the site started running a lot faster after a period of acting up/not loading, but it seems I was wrong. Packed and ready to go! :D

Alright folks, I've spent plenty of time familiarizing myself with the new server and how things work over there. Before I go off on longwinded irrelevant tangents let me just say this:

The server move will most likely start half a day from now

Which is to say, once the americans have gone to bed.

I've done all the preparations, tested CF works correctly on the new server, wrote myself a little script so I don't have to manually add several 10 million custom domains using the control panel... thingy. I think we're good to go, save a few small details I'll take care of in the next few hours. The new server's really nice by the way! I tried to do some operations that would always make the current server cough blood (like clearing the post history of someone with thousands of posts), and the new server handles it like a beast.

also oh my god the control panel is infinitely less janky than the dreamhost one, and it has an actual API so i can automate things like adding domains!! the support over there has also been very good in the face of a barrage of questions as I was getting my feet wet. I'm excited!

As for the move, the longest chunk of time will probably be transferring over the files, but the majority of that will happen without the site in no-upload mode. I actually expect that no-upload phase to barely register with how I've ended up deciding how to handle things. I also tested importing a Database backup, and that'll take around 3 hours, which will be the amount of time of time the site will be fully in "read only mode", so no comments, forum posts, managing webcomics, etc. but everything will still be accessible for reading.

After that I'll switch over the domains to the new server, at which point you'll be at the mercy of your ISP and browsers figuring out comicfury.com (and the other domains) now point to a new location. I'll probably update the announcement on the site to let people know the domain has been switched over, so that point will be a good point to reboot your pc just to help the change along a bit.

Wut??

About the only thing not allowed here is child porn and like, idk, step-by-step instructions for making an atomic bomb at home?

C'mon...

I'm gonna give the benefit of the doubt and say they were asking if anything new would be banned. The answer is still no afaik tho

I really hope anyways bc you're right literally nothing is banned here that's not extremely illegal lmaoooo
