For you, specifically ... perhaps.
Can you make his outage much longer than 24 hours, please?

Fantastic news! This is more progress in a few months than 2 years of thinking we were getting a new site. Well done! :clap:

As the topic says, we're moving the site to new servers hopefully on Tuesday 14th. We can't give you an exact time of when its happening or how long it will take. It should be worth the wait though.

Initially the site forums will go into maintenance mode and then a holding page will appear. Once the domain is pointing to the new servers we'll check everything is working ok and then open the forums back up to you all.

You probably won't notice too much difference apart from the site performing a bit better and a few of the old issues have been resolved. This is just the first step on our plans to improve things though. From Tuesday we will have the site stable and on a cloud platform with scaleable resources to meet our every need. We can then start to upgrade the forums and work on our wishlist of features.

Thanks for bearing with us!

:clap:

Thank you, 1nkling. And, thank you, particularly, to the entire Tech Team. Your efforts are greatly appreciated and are reminiscent of the mind-set that originally grew this site.

You should use that time to go outside.
