UD has notified us that he is planning to move the server we are on. We will be moving from Go Daddy over to Linode. He plans to have this fully done before November 27th and plans to start the process this weekend. We are expecting that this will create some downtime and disruptions during the process, but we can't fully predict these in advance.

Thank you for your patience through this time and process. We will keep you informed with any updates.

Aw, this is also nice and making me nervous. I hope things go good and that, if the sites do go down, that we'll get them back safe and sound. I also hope that things will be just as swell on the new server.

There won't be very many apparent changes, and we're not real sure what to expect. It's more for the backend of things. It's supposed to be faster and more stable. Godaddy is bad anyway. >:

This should be really good, assuming the move itself goes smoothly. I don't have experience with them personally but I've heard from a lot of people that Linode is an excellent webhost. Whereas, GoDaddy... is awful, haha.

There will be some chat downtime!!

Underdog has informed us that he has shut the chat server down to make the move. It may take a while (a few hours), so please bear with us while things get settled.

Yeah, I heard that Linode is WAY better than GoDaddy, smart move! Hopefully, all goes smoothly and well.
Can't wait for WH to go back online! (:

I saw nothing got posted but better late than never? We had an update last night and that everything had been moved over to the other server and turned back on, however there are still couple issues it seems that need to be worked out. Other than that the chat seems to be running!
