Downtime ahead! (now over)

Postby [violet] » Tue Jul 28, 2020 4:55 pm

Hello all! To facilitate a hardware upgrade, gameside will be unavailable for about 45 minutes tonight from 11:45pm PDT (Tuesday, July 28).

See in your local time.

As usual, people who are logged into the forums at that time may be able to continue posting, even though gameside is down. (The trick here is to stick to a single browser tab and only click around the forums - don't use your back button, or refresh the page, or anything else that might make the forum try to reload your authentication details.)

The site won't be any different when it comes back, but we hope to be able to improve performance over the next week or so, especially with regards to daily update lengths.

Edit: It hath begun.

Edit: All finished.

Weren't we told that update length cuts would only be considered once there were less than 200,000 nations in the world, or does [the overlady Herself] know something we don't? :P

I hope this gets rid of the random 30 seconds of silence moments we've seen too many of over the past few months.

Cheers Violet. Even more so because it is at a time of the day when I'm much less active.
