Forum could be down for a short while!

Postby Crossa on Fri Jan 07, 2011 4:50 pm

Hi all,

The forum needs some maintenance, and while this is carried out, the board is taken offline for a short while. Now we realize this is severely distressing for some of you! What to do with all that spare time?

Most importantly: remain calm. Do not start making all sorts of real life friends and such, because the forum will be back soon and then you won't have any time for these poor people anymore. Also, do not go running off and signing up on the NASCAR forum or something. They are a hostile bunch, who do not take well to us refined F1 fans. If and when you get into trouble, and if you have Lyria's private email address, you can contact her. If not, good luck to ya, you're on your own!

Oh no, I've only just joined this merry throng - hope I have the mettle to resist joining another forum while you're down - when will that be exactly? If I know, then I can plan to sleep for the duration and no harm done :hihi:

Can't happen too soon - this place is far too much of a distraction :reallyevil:

I let slip one small fart and this entire forum has to close down for maintenance. :eerie: :eerie: :eerie: :eerie:

I wonder if this maintenance has a scheduled time, or if they're planning an ambush?

It will happen as soon as admin has time to do it. Sorry, can't be more specific than that. We have had some issues over the past week or so and they need dealing with. Hopefully it won't be down for long.

I am reliably informed the forum has been down and is now all shiny and new. If you find any issues with it, please do let one of the mods know about it and we'll report it, get it fixed. All should be well though with any luck, it looks fine to me so far :yay:

Neither have I.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the server went for a quick nap on the job, and lied about being upgraded. :noway: :noway:

The main benefit is to us mods, it's got more security to keep out the spammers. If you guys can't see any change that's good to know!!
