You will not be able to access BGDF on Wednesday 13 May, between 8:00-11:00 EDT. Approximately.

BGDF is finally swapping over to some new servers! Some more info afterwards, when it is successful.

Please take note...

That in the coming few days leading up to the maintenance... We also ASK you to NOT "Upload" or "Attach" images to your posts. Otherwise you may lose those files or you might need to upload them a 2nd time.

We will advise you all ... When the situation is back to NORMAL.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Just wanted to BUMP this back to the TOP!

Just an FYI that tonight we are finalizing the migration. As far as performance is concerned, I didn't see any difference. So the new host should be about the same (in terms of performance) as the old one...

Again please do NOT upload images or attach them in the Original Posts (OPs). Like including an image with your thread.

Embedded images hosted off-site are permissible. So if you use Markdown and add < img src=" ... " > < /img > this is OKAY. But again they MUST point to offsite websites (like a personal website where you HOST the images).

This is ACCEPTABLE and PERMISSIBLE (Sample Duke from "Crystal Heroes").

We'll be sure to let everyone know when things are completed! And then, everything will be "back to the NEW normal". Cheers.

Everything looks to be back to NORMAL... or the NEW NORMAL!

So please feel free to continuing using BGDF as if nothing had happened! Let me tell you last night the site was pretty darn buggy when we migrated. A special thanks for Matthew (@Black Oak Games) for helping debug the server... Also a kudos to our new hosts for having that 24/7 chat line for support (Technical and Customer).

Welcome Back to the NEW BGDF!

Please be aware ...

That some parts of the site have become "stale"... We will be working to correct this in the next few months. Some big and lofty goals to establish "custom" content from our partners in addition to seeing if we can form new partnerships with other vendors.

I have a online meetup with Rich tonight and we're going to talk about what will happen next. Priorities, availability, real life and all that good stuff ... So that we can focus on what's ahead and clearly establish a site with good content (and might I even add "exclusive" content).

Stay tuned ... We'll be turning the corner soon enough!

On a personal note, Thanks! I'm glad you noticed. This is my artists favorite illustration (according to her). She really enjoyed the adding the Royal "flair" to the Duke's clothing.
