SITE UPDATES Upcoming Site Maintenance

Discussion in 'ANNOUNCEMENTS' started by Kitti, Jun 7, 2018.

  1. With the recent announcement regarding the forum audit, we announced that the Admins are busy reworking some aspects of the site in an effort to improve site usability and adapt to the needs of the memberbase. In line with this, we're going to be reorganising and tweaking a few things around the site.

    In order to do this as smoothly as possible without any posts or people getting lost in the mix, the site is going to be temporarily down for maintenance during the following times:

    June 16 2AM Central Time - June 16 10AM Central Time

    It is completely plausible that the maintenance will not take the full time slot and that function will resume early but the full eight hours is being reserved in order to ensure that there is no surprise extension of the downtime needed. Better to plan for more and need less than the reverse. The Iwaku Discord will still be available during this time period and updates in the maintenance process will be announced as they are available there.

    Thanks everyone for your understanding! Be sure to bring your owl treats to feed the Diana while we clean out her habitat.

  11. Nope, that's still being held off until software updates and will come with a specific warning that blogs are going away. You should definitely get it done as soon as possible though. :P
