I thought my current server setup would be enough to handle the traffic. It seems that it is, but we just don't have enough bandwidth to handle the site. We're almost at our limit for the month already which is 2,000GB (we're at 1600 already on the 11th). I get billed $.50 per Gig over my limit. At the rate we're going, we're going to go over by about 2,000 gig (which means I'll be billed an additional $1,000 next month if something doesn't change).

I'm basically going to throw an additional $200 per month at the site so we're nearing the $700 point for the 2 servers. I refuse to limit features on this site while we're getting whacked with all of this extra traffic (double what we were doing last month). Here's the new IP address: http://74.53.137.200/

UPDATE: The site was too big to do a straight copy of the current website to the new server. I got most of it the first time through, but it appears there were some things that didn't make it such as the /comics/ diretory and some of the toy gallery directories such as /images/toys/files/24 (universe) and /images/toys/files/40 (movie).

I really, really, really need all of your help to comb through the new server to see what's missing. I need to find out what content hasn't been ported over yet that I've overlooked.

http://74.53.137.200/

This is going to happen very quickly (as in this weekend). The more of you that help find things that aren't working properly on the front end, the sooner we'll be able to get everybody moved over to the new server.

Please test everything - old sections, new sections, image galleries, links in news posts, etc. Post all problems that you discover in this thread from missing images to missing sections/pages. I will be fixing bugs throughout the night on the new site.

Please note that any posts you make on the new site will be made here as well. Both sites are working off the same database, which is hosted on a separate server. The only exceptions are uploading images to the forums and for the staff to upload images for the news section.

Thank you all for your help!

Two problems I noticed

1) The News bar on the left hand side of the site is listing older news, not todays news

2)I get a Redirection status Error when I try to post from the other site that asks me to click another link which leads to the same page

Some images in the news column are not appearing, like the image for "New Deluxe Bumblebee and Unleashed Prime Out in the U.S." feature. Everything looks ok so far

I love this site and would do anything to help, and even though I work for the internet...

I promise you I shouldn't be touching computer stuff!

However, everything I tried here seems to be working perfect.

Well, nothing much going on at work, might as well have a play through the "new site".

Both of these errors have been resolved.

Please keep looking. There have to be more things that aren't working. I'm good at what I do ... but not that good. Please look harder! There's got to be more things that aren't right. :D
