We've previously talked about moving the server to the Empire of Paid Servers, but as it stands, the Realm of the Forbidden is awkwardly placed in the middle of the Kingdom of Free Server Fees.

I believe myself capable of interpreting such arcane language:
Mayshar is the one person who is allowed access to server on which the forum is currently hosted.
Right now we are not paying for the server.
We could go to a different server, but it would cost money, and this solution works for the moment.

Did I get that all basically right?

So either teach Mayshar how to use computers or move the Alliance site. Actually, do the latter either way. Having it on a sever that can only be accessed by one dude who's not even on the GC sounds like a bad long-term strategy.

Mike is correct. And being a jerk.

It's not a long-term strategy. When last this came up the issue was that moving was dependent on where the Wiktenauer was going, and whether we were going to need to find a host that could best serve both needs. But we can move any time to whatever host the GC selects.

Yeah, it's been brought up, and it will happen. Timing and manpower is the only issue.
