    Default *ATTN*: All Board Members....

    We Will Be migrating To A New Server...

    We wanted to inform everyone that we will be migrating to a new host server at any point from the time of this notice (4pm - August 1, 2010).

    We will put the site into "Maintenance mode" where you'll see the site and notice that it's in Maintenance Mode but you won't be able to access the website. This will be done so I can make an accurate Backup with zero data loss.

    After Maintenance Mode and the backup is made the website will look like it doesn't exist. You'll put in the URL or refresh and you'll get a page to nowhere. The cause for this is that we have to redirect the Domain Name and it can take anywhere from 1 hour to 24 for it to get registered/propagate through the Web. So be sure to check back often.

    We expect to hopefully have everything completed, done and changed over to the new host by Monday. If we could buy some luck, by tonight (Sunday night).

    If there are any questions please feel free to contact Kipper and fill up his inbox at - pittsburghsportstavern@gmail.com

    Thanks,
    Kipper & NKySteeler

    Thanks for the info guys. Great site by the way. I stumbled upon Planet Steelers too, but since you obviously have to check your manhood at the door over there this is the place for me.

    So far I left my vaseline over at the Planet for those guys to enjoy. I am hoping I don't need it here.

    I did take away from the Planet that their sponsors seem to be more important then their members.

    Welcome to the board, Boomerang.

    We also don't fill up the Pittsburgh Sports Tavern with an enormous amount of "ads" to make this site look like the back window of a 1979 Station Wagon that just came back from a cross country trip. We don't pressure people to click on ads to support us and we aren't asking for donations to a site that is designed to support personal ad revenue and the selling of personal sports goods on ebay.

    Our current server migration that will be taking place today/tomorrow is being done with the sole 110% purpose of making sure that this Message Board can be operate and run at a quick capacity with limited down time. In other words, we aren't paying for a higher end server VPS to suit ownerships personal needs (ad generating for personal profit and ebay store personal profit advertising) instead of the purpose behind this site - the Message Board. Simply said, we are forced to use a higher end server because of nothing else but this Message Board and the traffic this Message Board uses.

    Kick up your feet and enjoy

    UPDATE: We recently found some new info, and are evaluating which server host might be the better deal. Kipper is currently exchanging e-mails with them for more info... Long story short, we won't be starting the process until a bit later this evening...FOR THIS REASON, The complete process MIGHT run into Tuesday at the latest.

    ...But as the original message stated, once we start the switch, please just keep checking back... Once on-line with the new host, it should be better than ever, and with much more reliability. That is the faccet we want to obtain prior to the start of football season, for you all, the members.

    Steeler Nation is at least a 100% fully dedicated Message Board. They aren't hosting a bunch of personal revenue generating crap on their site and then passing the costs of a message board with limited traffic onto it's users

    You are right, it is a dedicated message board with no advertising and I'll give them that. The good thing about experiencing that board is that it really makes me appreciate this one.
