We're back! - was : Server shutdown Thurs March 20

Postby Bruce N H » Wed Mar 19, 2014 4:32 pm

Hey all,

The server is going to be shut down tomorrow in order to switch over to the new server. The process might take a couple of days. We will update you via announcements in the Flickr Classic-Castle group.

But... but... but... :twitch: The deadline for Garheim's current LC is tomorrow; I was going to finish my build tonight and upload it tomorrow before the cutoff. Guess I gotta build like crazy tonight :mad: :wink:

Hey,

The timing is sort of imposed from the outside. Due to some problems the hosting company is going to cut Troy off from the old server, and he already got them to extend the time so that he can download old files and get them transferred over to the new server.

Hopefully the Garheim leaders will take this into account - perhaps they can extend the deadline, or let people enter via the Flickr group or Merlin's Beard.

No, if all goes well the forum experience will not change at all.

Ronin, I'm sure any ongoing LCC deadlines can be pushed out a day to accommodate the server being down. In fact, I think Loreos and Lenfald have ongoing LCs with the same deadline, so you're not alone!

Yes, we are back. And we will need time to go through and address all the issues. Remember, the staff all has full time jobs, and lives. Patience is appreciated as we address what we can as we find it. Thank you.

___________________

We also need to extend a HUGE thank you to Troy for not only hosting Classic Castle for a decade on his server, but for his work in moving the site over the last few days.

And we need to thank davee123 for his help with the server move.

____________________

So please remember to thank those who worked hard to get the site back and functioning.

Hey all,

We're back (obviously, or else you wouldn't be reading this). Huge thanks to Troy and Dave for all of their effort over the past week getting this up and running.

There are still glitches - if you find any please leave a note in this thread so that we can work on restoring any missing files or links. We already know the avatar images, custom titles, and smileys are messed up.

Now that it's back up, can we have GCVII?

This is probably painfully obvious but, I better say it. The titles below your name is missing not sure if this is a new thing or just a glitch. Thought I better say something though.

This is one of the things we are aware of. We are working on it as well as other issues.
