If we make changes, if the boards will be down, or if we just want to let everyone know about something, we'll be posting it here.

Downtime Expected 03/03/2018 @ 3 PM EDT

Post by Diablo0 » Thu Feb 15, 2018 9:27 pm

So I was surprised to get an email from the host today saying effective March 31st, 2018 they’re closing their deactivating everyone’s accounts and closing their doors.

Over the next month we may experience some downtime while I move it to a new host. I’ll post up to let everyone know when this will occur.

Thank you,

Planning to migrate the site to the new server this weekend.

Expect the forum to be disabled for posting starting Saturday, 03/03/2018 @ 3 PM Eastern.
I'll need to disable the forum so that no data is lost during the migration.


At that point, I'll be moving it to the new server and reconfiguring the site to work on the new server. When I update the DNS nameservers, this can take several hours for it to propagate throughout the internet to your DNS provider. When you see the site come back online, this should be a good indicator that you're now accessing the site on the new server.

After the move, you may experience some errors. Please feel free to report these on the Site Problems/Feedback board so I can work to resolve the issues as they're found.

Just under 2 hours before the forum goes down for a day or so.
