In my ongoing efforts to improve the stability and infrastructure of the site, I will be upgrading the site to a new database server on Tuesday morning, starting at 7.30am BST.
I expect the whole process to take around 6 hours. Because this is such a long time, I will do my best to code the site to be read-only rather than offline during this time.
That means you will not be able to post in the forums, send PMs, or create or join gaming sessions (and possibly some other things that I haven't thought of yet) during this time.
I want to thank you for your patience during this time, as ever we will keep you posted as to how the upgrades are going on our Twitter feed
and our Facebook page
The good news is that initial testing shows the new server to be between 5 and 10 times faster - woohoo!
