After some time and heroic efforts from Whitehorse and me I think we successfully moved all the files, databases and our domains to new host.
White is without proper internet still but I believe he will take advantage of new host and many addons we have at our disposal now and will make our site even better.

Sorry for longish downtime but it was neccessary to make sure all DNS kicked in properly and everything is OK.

Also I must offer some apologies as due to me making many, many backups and working from 3 different locations (computers) I might have uploaded forum database a bit older than I should. I believe that only 1 or 2 latest posts were missing.

Have fun and enjoy Royalstorm forums again :)

Teamspeak:
- The main address of our TeamSpeak server is now: ts.royalstorm.eu (default/no port)
- Created a backup TeamSpeak server in White's server, with the address: ts-backup.royalstorm.eu (default/no port)
- Implemented a script to check the connectivity to the main server every minute, try to restart it if it doesnt respond, and if it fails switch the ts.royalstorm.eu tsdns domain to the backup server

Forum avatars:
- Detected and fixed a problem that prevented users from uploading new avatars. The problem was caused a bit ago when we changed file host. The old avatars were not affected by this problem.

Forum/website:
- Adjusted the code for the forum and website teamspeak viewers to not reload on every page refresh, only every minute. This is to (hopefully) fix that random TS crash that has been around for a couple of months.

(Because of the API changes of youtube that broke the capacity of AEVA to add youtube videos to new posts)

Forum plugins/packages:
- Removed: AEVA.
- Installed: Simple Audio Video Embedder.

Extra Notes:
This update also adds new advantages, some of the most noticeable are:
- supporting the HTTPS urls from youtube.
- supporting the short URLs from youtube.
- supporting other websites previously not supported.
- faster load of the forum pages that have embedded videos/audio.


Forum URL Icon:
- Now all Boards and Topics will have the RoyalStorm logo on your browser tabs.

Forum Header:
- Increased the width of the TS viewer by 30%. (from 200px to 260px)
- Placed the CET Timezone clock in the same column as the "total time logged in" (but being in the bottom right of it).

Forum internal menu:
- The "Members" link will now by default list the members with the most recent accounts first, instead of alphabetic order.

Note: All of these changes were achieved by modifying the php code of the forum.

Forum:
- Created a new sub-board for Blade & Soul, named: China/RUS
- Moved the old topics of Blade & Soul to the new sub-board.

Notes:
- Some topics also got renamed to make it easier to identify to which version of B&S they refer to.
- The reason for these actions is to clean up the main Blade & Soul board (and associated "Tips & Tools" sub-board) to give space for the upcoming official USA/Europe release, while still having access to the old topics for reference.
