Yeah.  I tried to register and it says my account is still awaiting admin approval.

As before, with the deluge of new registrations I am only approving accounts once a day. If you have put one in, just wait a while. It will be approved. But don't put in more than one. That annoys me and I will either reject all of them, or randomly approve one. Depends on how I feel.

Wow... Forum went from 10+ seconds to register (or modify) my post, and frequent errors to 0.1 seconds. Awesome!

It's... lightning fast.

Nice to see the forums back up, sure the downtime was painful but considering the voluntary aspect of Aurora and the forums we're lucky to have the effort put in that Steve, Eric, and the others give to make this community run somewhat smoothly overall.   
I do see what acid web is getting at though, but he should be thankful about the recent karma change, I imagine a few people might have gotten smite happy there.

I fully appreciate work of Erik Luken.

But I have major character flaw - I say what I think. And harsh truth is not always nice.

Sorry to say this but you really dropped the ball with this migration.

Process that should take 10 minutes (not counting DNS records update) crippled forums for half week and caused pointless week long database rollback.

I hope that you will prepare better next time.
I did the backup on the 16th. Attempted to use their automated tools to restore it on the 17th and 18th. On the 19th I put in a ticket for them to do the restore. This was done, however created a second CPanel account (don't ask me why). The DNS change was pretty quick, but with the dual CPanel accounts, the subdomains were not behaving nicely. That's what caused the long rollback and such.

I didn't change the DNS until after I knew the backup had been restored.

Anyway, nicely said MarcAFK. 403 issues are fixed. New faster host. Win Win.

Thank you.

That's because I don't send out emails. And I only do approvals once a day. So if you've registered anytime since noon central today, you will get approved tomorrow morning.

Are password resets sent out automatically or manually?

If it's manually you might want to change the "A mail has been sent to your email address. " message to something like "A mail will be sent to your email address within a day or two. " so people don't expect instant responses and spam the system tring again if they get nothing after a few minutes, assuming they made a mistake/typo or the system derped.

If it's automatic I've not recieved it; tried my user name and my email, just in case I registered with my old now-inaccessable email account and then reregistered with my new one and forgot about it(as the signup says my current email is in use here).

The email is coming from aurora@pentarch.org. That address is not monitored, so don't send to it.
