    The photoforum staff would like to inform all users that we will be doing our Server migration Tomorrow, July 16 at 10AM Eastern US time. The website will be down for no less than a half hour and up to two hours. We don't intend on it being down for too long but just in case. Also, when we do a switch for servers, we have to change the DNS (domain name server) which could be transparent to some users and could take a while for others. These are what tell your browser where www.thephotoforum.com is on the internet so you can find it. Sometimes, the information flows a little slower to some browsers so it may take up to 36 hours before you'll notice an improvement in service, but we hope not.

    This new swap should take care of the speed issues we've been having with the forum as well as some other unseen problems. Plus we need it to accomodate for our growth we've been having since the beginning.

    Thanks for your understanding and remember that you can always visit www.thesupportforum.com or www.yourtravelforum.com while you wait for tpf to come back online.

    We've actually been playing with a test version of the site for a week or so now and everything appears to be ready to roll. I'm sure there will be a few surprises, but there's only one way to find out! :lol:
