In all fairness, those big, old servers of yesteryear must be really heavy. Maybe the 'guys' down at Rivals H.Q. have got achy arms after lugging them to the new place? What if they have to go down stairs? Maybe the elevator's broke? It's easy to scoff when you can't see the full picture.
only problem is other clubs fans can't use it without registering seperately, which defeats one of rivals objects.
I dont see it as a problem, I see that as a good thing because it does help cut down on spammers, flamers and trollers.
All the trouble with the QPR fans the other week wouldnt have happened on this forum, the genuine fans who just want to talk about football will probably still register, and thats what it should be like.
Rivals.net will be carrying out essential maintenance this weekend. The message boards and story pages will not be accessible and therefore not be available from first thing Saturday until Monday assuming everything has gone smoothly.
This move is part of a company wide policy to relocate all our servers.
We thank you for your patience during this time and have a good weekend.
