We're moving

Later this week this Thinking Anglicans site will be moving to a new home. We hope to make the move as transparent and as painless as possible, but as it involves a little bit of internet magic (updating the DNS of thinkinganglicans.org.uk) there may be a short period when you can’t reach the new site. We hope this period will be no more than a few minutes, and most readers may not notice it at all.

All posts and comments will be moved across to the new system and no data will be lost. We’ll post a further note here before moving out, and after that point no further comments on the old site will be approved, only on the new site.

This represents the biggest change we have made in the 15 years we have been publishing Thinking Anglicans. From the start we have been hosted by our friends and colleagues at Justus. The new site continues at Justus, and we are grateful for their support.

It is an appropriate time to say a big thank you to the Thinking Anglicans team. This site is important and I much appreciate it, thank you.

Also thanks to Justus for making it possible.

I agree. Enormously indebted to you for hosting, and for wisely monitoring the various (and, at times, heated) conversations.

Hope the new format works out better than it has for Episcopal Cafe.

When you announce the change, can you please give out the new URL?

I fully agree with Kate: I appreciate this site for its news on the CofE in specific and the Anglican Communion/Fellowship/Conglomeration in general. So, my thanks are due as well.

Thanks for all you are doing to provide this platform, and good luck with changing the DNS. Make sure the phone is off the hook!

To answer a specific question -- the URL isn't changing. We will continue at thinkinganglicans.org.uk as we have since we began in 2003.

Thanks for your comments. I'm hoping to make the switch this evening, with Argentina v Croatia providing entertainment.

"We hope this period will be no more than a few minutes"

For some people it may be an hour: more than a few (broken, in my view, but it's a losing battle) operating systems cache the results of looking up names for an hour, irrespective of the TTL. I see that thinkinganglicans currently has a ten minute TTL, but unfortunately some operating systems won't respect that.

Thinking Anglicans a more tolerant, much fairer site than Virtue online...I got excluded and I am not liberal!
