Since the migration to Discord has been so successful I’ve decided to pull the plug on the ‘ol TS server. We’ve had a long history with Teamspeak. Starting with actually finding and paying for a hosting service for all these weird internet people so we could organize in games better. Having members willingly crowd fund to keep it running. (Thank you!) Constantly expanding the service to accommodate all our members and other groups for raids, 100+ people at times! Figuring out how to set up a virtual cloud server and configuring Teamspeak to be hosted off it. (So much cheaper!) And finally the wildest part was actually submitting a request for a limited Non-Profit License from Teamspeak, configuring the site to meet their standards (Across store we hardly knew ye) and actually getting approval! (Free 512 person slot server license!)
You’ve served us well for the past 8 years TeamSpeak! Thanks for the memories!
Well that was embarrassing, there was an issue with the captcha that prevented members from registering with the site. That’s been corrected. There is still a captcha issue with logging in through the forums which I am looking at, but may take time as I need to contact the people who actually made the forum software.
You may register and log in through the blog to post on the forums. Again I apologize and will try to get this corrected asap.
I’ve added a simple calendar to the site for a quick reference as to what Free Company bonus buff will be scheduled to be up on what day. The schedule is subject to change as more members progress and as I receive more feed back.
On another note:
If anyone is having trouble finding other Across members to organize runs at certain times we have a Facebook fan page that you can use to communicate with other members outside the game, or feel free to use our forums either on the Acrossx website, the lodestone forums or even on our Teamspeak. Last but not least, the Free Company chat is always open, you’re not bothering anyone by asking! We have many avenues of communicating with each other. So please make use of these tools.
Finally, those of you who are new to Across please take the time to read our doctrine. Its a good run down of who we are and who we strive to be. Hopefully it’ll give you a feeling that you belong.
Oops! Across turned Four years old last August – Happy late birthday!
This weekend we officially changed hosting services for the website. Thankfully when the domain changed over to the new host everything was running flawlessly. Hopefully we’ll see less down time and database load errors with our new service compared to Networksolutions. Only time will tell, but so far webhostinghub.com has been incredibly easy to work with. They have great support for exporting and importing databases from different hosts, which was something I’ve never done before. The prices aren’t too bad either. Anyways, I’d like to thank iCup for helping me go over the website to make sure everything was working.
Also, I know the images on the teamspeak walk through are down, and that’s only because they’re out of date and have the wrong information on them. I’ll fix it and post the new steps once I find the time/will to do it.
The forums are now functioning at 100% as well so please get some use out of them!
And now some Evangelion AMV: Radioactive by Imagine Dragons – JUST BECAUSE!

Update your bookmarks! Our old TS3 server will be up until funds run out, but we’ll be hanging out on our new server. Join up! We’ll be camping the TS all weekend for Final Fantasy XIV Beta!
