Hello Guitarmasterfriends biggrin.gif

I have noticed recently I am being constantly redirected to the U.S server (www alias) rather than the european server (www2) while i am on the forum. For me over here in europe Im finding it super slow useing the u.s one.

Any ideas? smile.gif

thanks!! wink.gif

Guys check your regional settings. Browser always checks the regional settings and try to redirect you to the "virtually nearest" node. For example if I set my regional settings to U.S. then GMC won't redirect me to www2 . And its not only the GMC, a lot of webpages use this. Bright example is Google.


--------------------
It doesn't matter how much time you spend if you don't know the correct things to do, and the correct way of doing those things. Fifteen minutes of correct practice will do you more good, than 5 hours of incorrect, unintelligent practice. Bad practice just makes you better at playing badly!

But this shouldn't matter as the forum only is available on one single server in the US.

I've meant about video section Kris smile.gif


ADD: I guess I know why matt was confused. First of all when you go to https://www.guitarmasterclass.net then press video lessons link you are redirected to www2.guitarmasterclass.net but if you press Forum link the alias stays as www2 tho you are redirected to single forum server which is located in U.S. right after you click on any subforum or thread the alias changes as www.

That could confuse you guys smile.gif

Here is the screenshot. Take a look.

Just to clarify, this is how it works:

* We've got two main servers. One in the US (www) and one in Europe (www2)
* When a user from europe enters the US (www) server, he gets automatically redirected to www2
* When a user from outside of europe enters the European (www2) server, he gets automatically redirected to www
* The exception to this is the forum, which for technical reasons can only be hosted on one server. This is the US (www) one. The first page of the forum is an exception to this, that page can always be loaded from either server.

We are working on making these solutions better, btw smile.gif

It exists definitly a problem with the european mirror and I have already posted it here.

The problem still exists and I hope that it will be solved because watching the videos in 5 second fragments is not so funny.
