Information TVF Server Migration
Just a head's up folks!

TVF will be migrating back to US soil within the first 2 weeks of April 2016. The most likely date for this to happen is 13th or 14th of April 2016.

As a result of this, some of you may have temporary accessibility problems depending on your ISP's and how fast they update their DNS databases.

If you're finding that you have a longer than expected inability to connect to TVF.. please be aware that 'some' ISP's can take up to 24hrs to update their databases (quite rare by today's standards though)

Another thing you can do is to flush your cookies and your DNS tables on your own devices. I'll leave you to Google-Fu how to do this Smile


It should be a straight forward migration as we have one of the best server admin's (not me... but a Professional) on the case, so no need to panic Shok Tongue

RE: TVF Server Migration
Just out of curiosity, is there a particular reason for the server change or is this just a general site update? I'm wondering if this has to do with TPD compliance or am I reading way too much into this?

TPD. If the servers are outside the EU, then no issues with the TPD. Forums could be - and eventually probably will be targeted as "advertising"
