Hello,

I sometimes experience an error loading a page in this website recently, and I've received messages that a new version of englishforums.com will be rolled out very soon.

I was wondering if the pages' web addresses here will change as well. My dilemma is I bookmarked all my favorite topics here and I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to access them again because the threads' addresses linked to my bookmarks have changed.

Could someone please advise? I'm just worried. Emotion: sad

Thanks so much.

Hi,
first of all, this is not in the right section. This is the "grammar" section, and you should have asked this either in the "help" section or in the "comments" section. However, I won't move this thread for now, or you might not be able to find it again and see this reply. I'll move it to the "help" section only after you have replied here, to make sure you know you'll find this in the "help" section afterwards. Ok?

Now, to answer you questions...
The problem is that you are anonymous, and you don't have an account here. If anything here is moved, deleted, changed, etc. you will never know, because you can't get any kind of notifications. If you are a registered member, however, you can.
I suggest you sign up and get an account here. It's free, and you won't see any adverts.

We had a major traffic increase, and a failed drive on our main server (all in the same week). No new version of EF coming out, it's now the most stable / fastest version we've had - from here we'll make gradual changes, no biggies Emotion: smile

Due to the way the internet works, we'd rather shoot at our feet than change web page addresses Emotion: smile You have nothing to fear.

Thanks, Kooyeen, for your response. I'm sorry if I post this in the wrong section since I usually only use the grammar section when asking questions. I guess you can now move this to the help section.

OK, thanks for inviting me and I'm happy to sign up and will do it after posting this. I just hope the original links that I previously bookmarked from this website won't change their addresses because they are so many. Emotion: phew
I just moved it, and I checked the URL: it didn't change. Emotion: smile
