Transfering Server Stats?

I've had a server for a long time and it was registered on here. It's in the 90th percentile. I just got a new server and ceased ownership of the previous one due to problems it was giving us.

The new server is now ranked in the upper 3,000's when the old one was ranked in the 200's. I've met the guy who owns the old one now and the stats on my old server haven't changed... So now he's got a way better rating than i do, even though his should reset and mine should transfer...

Can I transfer the data from my old server to the new one? He would be willing to help if he was required for action.

There is no feature to transfer statistics to a new server page or just modify the IP : Port of an existing page. If you have a new IP or join port, you must add the new combination.

There may be some feature in the future to help in the situation of using a new address. We cannot give an accurate time frame when something could potentially be created.

If your server is just as popular at the new IP, you will jump up in the rankings back to where you would have been. If your server is not as popular, it will go down to the same ranking in either situation - if the servers old rank was kept or if the server started at a low rank. Ranking is determined from a one month time period, so the server will be to where it should be in the ranking very quickly. The algorithm looks more closely at the recent week or so, so you should notice the biggest jumps fairly quickly.
