[Announcement] Server Move & Maintenance Downtime

Hi everyone!

We will be moving to new servers on Tuesday July 28th at 10 pm PST time. The downtime is expected to last approximately 4-5 hours. During this time we will be migrating to a more powerful front end server as well as the database server. We will also be applying minor optimization updates to feed and tribe index pages to speed up the loading process by dropping a number of dynamic queries. We should expect a noticeable increase in speed once the move and accompanying updates have been completed!

    Growth is a good thing! Our time may be turbulent but hopefully we'll have a prosperous future.

    Snapzu, I'm really proud to be a part of your community. I hope we grow even more!

          More exciting than Battleship. More fun than Clue. Zanier than Jumanji.

          You've got to slide it, to believe it.

      Looks like they are shutting er down tonight at 10 pm Pacific, so you still have exactly 14 hours left on the uptime ticker.

        You're right. So tomorrow is going to be my most productive day of the year (or I'll jump out of the window out of boredom I still didn't decide).

    Great to hear! Lately the site has had some speed issues on my end, so it's great to hear it'll be speeding up!
