Most thanked posts would be interesting, would be far more revealing than a user having a total of 1,567 posts. 

Who wants the job of going thru every post since the thanks button came in and cataloguing the numbers?

Actually we've had this discussion before. We vetoed the idea then.

Fair do's. Forgot about that and i wasn't thinking in terms of competition. I'm certainly not in favour of folk posting in a bid to receive attention or abusing the system (i can see folk agreeing to 'thank' each others posts).

What just thank every single post you see? That would be cheating!

It's that time again: I need to move the site to a new web host. Skip to the bit in bold if you don't want the details.

I've been with Future Hosting since December, but I've never found their customer support good. I've actually had problems with them from day one - when the site failed to work they said it was just a matter of waiting till domain records caught up. Eight hours of downtime and repeated requests later on, someone bothered to go in and check the records, found the fault I was asking to be fixed, then put it right. Not a good start but I didn't want to move twice in two days.

I think the problem with missing PMs also started when I moved to FH, but I quickly realised they wouldn't help me investigate so I had to live with it. I've been paying for a fully managed server but feel like they don't really care when things go wrong. I get standard responses from bored sounding staff - when my account was suspended at the weekend I asked them to help me troubleshoot the CPU spikes, and got a generic cut-and-pasted answer about some things somewhere possibly being badly coded. Like, dur. No effort to help me look at error logs or isolate the cause.

I'm going to a company - WiredTree - with a much better reputation for customer service. I've spent a lot of time browsing the threads on WebHostingTalk lately and they consistently get good reviews, and the communication I've had with them so far has been positive. We'll see how it pans out. Hopefully the site will also be a bit faster, but there will also inevitably be some troubleshooting to do. 

To avoid losing article comments and forum posts, the site will be put into read-only mode while the migration takes place. I don't yet know when it'll happen - completion time isn't up to me, but it'll be sometime in the next few days once my account is set up. So if you see a notice saying the forum is temporary locked, it's happening.

It should last for just a few hours but may take longer. If everything is open you can carry on posting as normal.

I'll post updates here if there's anything to say, so don't feel you have to ask if it's happened yet. Thanks in advance for your patience, and apologies also if things break.

Whoever wants to can Come Together on Annadog40's site

http://thefourmofbeatles.freef.....-site-news

to have a watch party during the time our beloved BB is down (in read-only mode). Hopefully, for Joe's sanity, the party won't be Long, Long, Long.

You can post as a guest there without creating an account.
