Update: This will roll out on 12/02, not 11/25.
We’ve recently upgraded our server technology at GuildLaunch to make your experience even better! This means faster connectivity and load times on your site and improved functionality and support.
With this upgrade you may notice some minor changes to your GuildLaunch Signature. Beginning on Monday 12/02 we will be rolling our Siglaunch servers over to the new hardware – this will have the following effect on these game specific signatures:
- - Any Game: No Change
- - WoW: Auto-updates will be re-enabled and pull information directly from the Armory. If you have an inactive character, you will need to update your information. Your Character information will update every 7-10 days; so if you make an update, please give us a week or so to import that information.
- - SWTOR: No Change
- - RIFT: No Change
- - LOTRO: The LOTRO data API no longer exists and therefore we have no way of auto-linking your character information. Because of this you will need to update to an Any Game signature.
- - GW2: No Change
If you have any questions or encounter any problems please shoot us an email at email@example.com.
'ello, Launchies - This is Slater, your resident support guy, and I've got some exciting things to let y'all know about!
1. WowStead Forum Threads Are Now Movable
If you are a former WowStead customer, there is now an option to migrate threads out of the archive on your Forums tab and into your Guild Launch forums proper. Just visit the thread you would like to add to the site forums, and there will be an option in the top right of that thread to move it out into a forum.
2. WowStead Voice Servers Are Actively Being Migrated
Some of the voice servers from WowStead have already been migrated into our billing system - now that we have the full data we needed, the rest of these will be added in the next few days.
You will receive an email from our billing system with your new login for our billing system at http://billing.guildlaunch.net/ - your control panel will be available on that site.
We know that this has taken more time than we intended and apologize for the inconvenience it has caused, but there have been some roadblocks in our way that we've had to barrel through. It's now going smoothly. :)
3. Guild Launch Servers Are Migrating!
This is the first announcement about our hosting servers moving over to a new system. We have already moved http://billing.guildlaunch.net/ to the new system. The next step will be http://www.siglaunch.com/ , followed by site hosting at http://www.guildlaunch.com/ .
This should not affect the majority of Guild Launch sites - it will just make them better, faster, stronger! We have the technology. It may cause a few minor issues with sites on a full domain (since we may be changing IPs), but we are looking into solutions for this before we cut everything over.
I will keep you informed as we go through the process.
Are you interested in taking your guild to the next level? Would you like to see beta functionality that we are putting together to help you do so? Do you (and your guild mates) have an Android phone running the 4.0 OS or better?
If so, we'd like you to help us test out the new Guild Launch Banter app!
You and at least five (5) other members of your guild would need to meet the following criteria:
- An Android 4.0 or better smartphone.
- A Google account email address.
Those interested should click here and check it out!
Our developers are going to be wrapping up the migration of our voice server billing system, http://billing.guildlaunch.net/ , over to a new server on Tuesday morning. The migration will begin at 7 AM EDT and should be wrapped up by 8 AM.
New voice servers will not be able to be ordered during this process, but current servers will remain up and active.
