On 10th February we will be migrating our services to a new specially-built server infrastructure in order to keep up with ever-increasing demand and traffic on the site. We will require a period of around 24 hours of downtime in order to be able to properly test configurations on the new backend.

Updates will be provided throughout the process via. the usual outlets, with in-depth details and a log of all events being provided on our status page.

If you have any queries regarding these upgrades, leave a post below or contact us by another means (ideally PM) and we'll get back to you.

Will this mean that the downloads will be slightly bugged?
It'll mean that the forums are completely offline and inaccessible for 24 hours and then, if all goes well, we return to normal operation as before but your PC talks to a different server which should cope with the load better. If the downloads end up bugged then something has gone horribly wrong.

Due to a delay in provisioning our new services we're migrating to, we've had to reschedule our downtime period to begin on Tuesday 13th February.
