On early Friday November 10, we’ve scheduled a move to a new server with significantly more resources dedicated for our use.

The transition for our forum will require some downtime as we will close the forum on our old server, back up the forum and then move and install the forum to the new server. So please understand that the forum will experience some downtime on Friday and possibly for some members (depending on your location around the world) until early Saturday.

Please follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts if you want to stay up-to-date with the server move as it happens. We'll announce on Facebook and Twitter immediately when the forum is back on-line.

Thanks in advance for your understanding. We are making this change in order to provide everyone with a faster and more reliable surfing experience. Our new server will also take advantage of some of the newer web technologies.

Our server move was a success! There are several outstanding issues with the site that will be updated as soon as possible.

The issues we are aware of are:

- Our DNS records around the world are not yet fully propagated, meaning that some will still see the old site (or even no site) for a few more hours. This will resolve itself within the next 12 hours.

- E-mails may be delayed for a few hours for the same reasons.

- Our mailing list and some of our other scripts need to be configured for the new server.

- MC Radio previews with song titles are not displaying correctly on the MC home page.

If you notice any other issues with the site or would like to comment on the server move please post here. We will be watching the server loads and activity closely over the next several days to monitor the new server under normal traffic.

Thank you for your understanding during the scheduled downtime.

Today we completed the second phase of our server upgrade. We now have an optimized enterprise SSD server which will provide a noticeable speed increase for everyone using the site and especially the forum. This will also allow us to make some significant upgrades in the near future.
