XT's New server

After months of work and such, XT has now migrated to a new standalone server which will now sort out the gremlins of slow load times and white pages. We are the only site on the server and hopefully this along with a lot of other background work will help XT overcome the problems we ensued in the past year. A thank you must also go out to some of the key people at VerticalScope who heard and acknowledged the problems we had and worked and continue to do so in helping us to aliviate those problems.

So hopefully a brighter future for XT.

Then re-install the member list...

And don't come up with reasons why it has been shut down, all have been heard before and acknowledged as nonsense.

It wasn't actually removed. It got deleted when we upgraded to a newer vBulletin version. The arcade was an unofficial add-on (also known as a 'hack'), which is not supported by vBulletin. So when you install a new version of the software, it simply overwrites any code that's not part of the official program and in doing so deletes the add-on.

After the upgrade we didn't reinstall it for several reasons. The main ones being that hacks can cause instability in the forum software, that they're difficult to maintain and that they basically need to be reinstalled after every upgrade and thus are rather labor intensive. Also, the hacks may contain code that exploits security vulnerabilities.

I believe that last reason is why VerticalScope doesn't allow any such hacks to be installed in any of the sites in their network.
