I realize this isn't the best time, what with the SWSH going on right now, however we'll be migrating to a new server sometime next week. Our hosting provider has a great promotion on right now, so I'd like to capitalize on it, as we'll be able to get something faster, with more modern hardware, and more bandwidth, for a bit cheaper than what we're paying right now.

The migration will take place at some point next week; more details will be available soon. For any downtime, we'll extend the SWSH an equivalent amount into April (likely no more than a day or two).

Keep an eye on this thread and we'll update it with more information is it becomes available, yup yup!

It looks like the migration will take place Tuesday night - at some point after reset. Once we start, we'll be putting the site offline, so you won't be able to go on GPX or the forums until after it's complete. Hopefully the transfer will only take a few hours at most, yup yup.

EDIT: Changed it to Tuesday night, yup yup.

Changed my mind, gonna do it first thing when I wake up in the morning instead so that I get to sleep tonight. It'll start sometime between 6:30 AM and 7 AM EST/server time. I expect the entire process to take 2-4 hours or so, and due to steps we've taken over the past few days, I expect few users will have issues accessing the site immediately once the switch is flipped (though some may be unable to get on for as much as 24-48 hours), yup yup.

And now we're live on the new server! If any of your friends are still being directed to the old one, feel free to let them know that the changes can take from 24-48 hours to full take effect, so they just need to be patient. We have taken steps to help minimize this, however.

If you notice any issues or if anything seems missing, please let us know ASAP. Otherwise, we've also extended the Honey+ an extra day (the last day being today now), and the SWSH until April 2nd as well, to compensate for issues over the weekend, as well as this transfer, so be sure to take advantage of the extra time now at your disposal, yup yup!
