    Hello Everyone!

    We are currently moving, or plan to move very soon, our site to an updated/faster server and we expect some temporary downtime related to this migration.

    While we do apologize for hiccups during the site migration, we are sure that you will be happy with the end result.

    If you have any questions or concerns related to the above, please post here.

    Many thanks to all our members new and old for your continued support.

    Will we experience the same issues as MLP, i.e. double posting and no search function?

    I think we will be getting Chinese spam posts for colleges instead of Malaysian online gambling like Tdpri.

    Maybe all history of our previous posts, pics, and juicy info will vaporize... :hmm:

    A mixed blessing to be sure.

    I notice that the site still powered by vBulletin hasn't had these issues.

    The original authors of vBulletin are the developers of Xenforo. Xenforo doesn't have near the issues that vBulletin has had in recent years. It sounds like they are upgrading the hardware not the software.

    Hey I have a novel idea. How bout restoring our SG resources and historical data, catalogs and literature like we once had?

    Now I know I will likely get a banned but for those who were here long enough, it is a serious sore spot, especially since I thought we were told it would be fixed a long time ago.

    Despite any claims to the contrary, it's gone. It was shredded and flushed down the crapper. Wayback only gives us tantalizing snapshots of pieces of a page.
    I guess this is like the rest of the internet (and the world) where talk is cheap and truth is negotiable.

    Bro bid. Please do me a favor and gimme some butthurt balm meme since my stock of it was all used up once that awful migration killed the priceless invaluable info that basically is the ESG version of Hitler trying to wipe out all the Jewish historical records and people. That's how crappy I feel from the loss.

    Maybe this is a good place to ask: Spending a lot of time on this forum, I wonder who are the people behind ETSG? Who is running it? Where are the servers? And how is this all funded?
