Hi all,

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:

I predict an outage of no less than 24 hours.

The lack of information the last time around drove me nuts so now I'm involved I'm endeavouring to keep every one posted. The board as a whole want more clarity. Obviously we can't tell you lot everything but there's definitely more that can be shared that there was before. We'll also be able to talk more about what went on once we're on the new servers.
