Hey guys, as you are aware I am working towards a migration and upgrade of the website. Now it is inevitable that there is going to be some downtime, there are some very large files that may take a few hours to upload. I will also have to make some adjustments to the website so it's usable. It could be a day, it could be two days of downtime, I really couldn't say for sure. Now I have come up with an idea that would mean you could all carry on chatting as you do whilst I do my work. But it really depends on what you guys want to go.

So here's my idea. Those of you who would like to keep on chatting away, can do so on Oscarfishlover.co.uk. I know it's not ideal and new posts will obviously not be here once you come back to this website, but it would mean you could still chat with each other, even if you aren't actually answering peoples questions. Let me know what you think. Oh, you would be able to sign in with your username and password, so no need to create another account, unless you are fairly new to this website

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

You do what you think is best Penn. A day or two wont kill anyone, and the alternate site will suffice fine imo.

Okay, sounds good. A day or two before I am ready to wipe all the old files and start uploading the new ones, I will let you all know, I'll make sure everyone knows where to go. At least you will all be able to carry on chatting as you do on here. You'll just have to remember that if you do start a new topic,it won't be here when you come back. So I would suggest just using it to chat casually. I thought a very good idea, I would hate it if some of you went off and joined other websites and didn't come back :-) :-)

Not really, you never expect to be one of the top websites on the Internet.. I wrote a little article about keeping the Oscars and put it on my personal website, it started getting quite a lot of hits and visitors so I thought "what the hell" let's put together a website based on my own experience and opinions, six years later hear we are.

Good idea, we all need our daily OFL fix, well I do anyway :laugh:

Surely nobody would leave over a bit of down time!

I don't think people would move on, if people were looking for an answer then obviously they would look elsewhere if the site was off-line for some reason. However once you find somewhere where you feel at home than you normally stay put.
