    Dear all,

    In the next few days we hope to be moving Disney Secrets to a new server.

    In theory :wink: the move should all take place in the background and all users/passwords/messages/threads will be moved across without you needing to do anything. One day you'll login and simply find yourself on the new server.

    If you DO have problems, please post in the guest services forum. If you can't get in to do that, please email admin AT wdisneysecrets.com (replacing the AT with @ of course)

    The new server is faster than the old and has some brand new forum software with all new bells and whistles :) more about that once we've made the move. Don't worry though, it's still really easy to use and looks a lot like this current one.

    If you've any questions/concerns, please let us know

    Are you going to have to do anything special to allow Tapatalk users into the new server?

    yep tapatalk will work... I'm HOPING it'll just find the new server without anyone having to change settings but if that proves not to be the case, I'll update people

    Just a reminder... over the coming days we expect to move to the new server and brand new forum software so things may look a bit different. Don't worry, it's still us! :D

    We have a few. I like the new ones. :D Perhaps over time we can add more, but right now we have the "modern, lean" approach to smilies. :D

    yep, it wouldn't migrate smilies but we do still have them so it's just a matter of adding them over time

    :confused: still trying to find my way round, I've managed to get in the front door, but a bit :confused: at the layout of the rooms. Leave me alone and I'll sort it out in my own sweet way ;)
