In order to reduce costs, CodeWalrus website will shut down its DigitalOcean webspace on January 1st 2019 and everything located there will move to our second hosting provider, which already hosts both CW and WTFCity's Minecraft servers.

The website will also ditch Simplemachines forum software in the near future in favor of PhpBB3 or Discourse, depending of which is the most up to today's web standards by the time it happens.

I thought you could not switch from SimpleMachines because there was still a lot of work to do ?Between phpbb3 and Discourse though, i much prefer phpbb3. At least you can use it without javascript... Hopefully you end up using that. (or another alternative that's just as good)Good luck

Yeah, sometime last year, motivation went rock bottom for both of us, that and it's kinda hard to choose the right software for our needs. On that case, we definitely need a restructuration by the start of 2019. Not a hard limit but it would be pretty cool to be done by then, as in moving everything to that new server and it's starting to get pretty expensive. We're open to any suggestion that would be better than anything we said :)

Also, the server in question we want to move to currently hosts 3 Minecraft servers and a Mastodon instance on calc.news (which I encourage you to sign up on cause why not), it's a nice server with 32 GB RAM, enough disk space to breathe and it's only 10€, but it's the kind of company their tech support is pretty much their vice-president and it went down for 3 days cause we had a bug with it, the VM became a zombie and we had to migrate the VM to another host, so yeah. Hope it won't happen again and I do more offsite backups, they said they're gonna upgrade their installation of OpenVZ soon and it's gonna be very welcome. I mean, it's still on Linux 2.6.32 and Debian starts complaining about it.
