On November 6th Iwaku will be CLOSED for many, many, many hours for a MAJOR SITE UPDATE. This could be anywhere from 8 hours to 24 hours, depending on how long the updates themselves take and if we run in to problems. Due to the huge amount of things we're doing this round, we are expecting this to take most of the day so we can make backups, install, bug check, and double check to make sure everything is working okay. During this time, we will have all of the CHAT ROOMS open! You will be able to chat with Iwaku peeps or even roleplay in one of the roleplay rooms to keep yourself entertained while the site is down. A couple people are also going to be hosting some off site things, like LOTGD, Cards Against Humanity or Skype nights. Staffers and Volunteers are going to be hanging around all day to keep and eye on things. SOME THINGS THAT ARE GETTING UPDATED: Forum Software & Modifications: This is mostly bug fixes. There might be one or two new features or tools, but mostly bugs! Iwaku's New Style: We'll be converting over to our new style. The whole site will look dramatically different, and we expect many complaints about icky change, but HOPEFULLY the nice clean new style will make mobile support even better and easier to manage. Roleplay Section Rearranging: Iwaku has grown SO MUCH in the past year that we now have to rework the way our roleplay section is organized. Don't worry, everything will still work exactly the same, we're just going to be ordering the sections differently on the index page. We'll even be adding a new Genre for you. Can you guess what it is? OTHER THINGS???: Since the site is going to be down for so long, we're going to try to cram as many updates as possible in to that timeframe. So when the site is reopened, people can run around screaming OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD.
