Apologies folks, despite working at it until close to 3am this morning we ran into issues with regards to PHP limits and forum paths, considering that we're switching from one domain to another it made a little bit of a mess of the configuration.

Mistakes have been learned from however and we'll be in a much better position to migrate over at the next attempt- which I'll do in the early hours one morning this week (might be a case of doing it when I find the time between my work comittments this week-so apologies if we don't provide you with a great deal of notice before closing the site for an hour or two.

The reason why the forum remained closed overnight was because I had planned to finish up the switch this morning but I've come in to meet a trainwreck at work, so that's not going to be possible.

To summarise, the forums are exactly the same as they were before the close and people should continue to use the existing domain http://thefootballleagueforum.co.uk for the time being.

Apologies for the seemingly needless downtime. It wasn't a pointless excercise though as the problem has been identified and the next attempt will run smoother.

Forums can be used as normal in the meantime and there will be no data loss.

Customary comment about how different it is to actually receive this information.

I noticed during the attempted switch that TFF's domain now contains a placeholder page... Are you getting that domain?
They still own the domain name till April/May so unlikely until then.

Server issues fixed, we'll be closing at just after 5pm for about 20 minutes, then everything will be good to go.
