Hi Nick!

1) That believe it or not is the original way of accessing your webmails, was meant to be decommissioned with the old admin panel back in 2007.
Guess it stayed, don't know why.
I stand to be corrected here, I'm not 100% sure on this.

2) ForuMotion doesn't use anything like that, plus our servers are far more powerful then any of the ones used by Award Spaces Wink

ForuMotion infact uses Softlayer as our servers, and they are consistently upgraded to improve speeds, security, and space. They are occasionally replaced, which usually happens atleast once a year, and is always carefully monitored by both our Developers & Network Teams, but also Softlayer's deployment team
There was a previous instances where we attempted to change companies, however, that had *hunches* failed terribly, and that company also faced legal issues, I believe.
We have upgraded our servers previously, and have already done an upgrade this year without any problems :wouhou:
We have been using Softlayer since 2002, when ActiveForums (French Service exclusively) was first coming around, still in their ALPHA Stage, but it quickly moved to the BETA and also quickly moved to Release candidate in 2003. The English service started in 2005.
