Over the course of the next few days (there will not be an ETA), MYSTcommunity will be inaccessible due to a long-needed forum upgrade. This change will provide for a more featureful, secure and perhaps also faster result. It will also, at first, get rid of some customizations, unfortunately, but we might be able to sort all of those out sooner or later.

Please respond ASAP if there is a particular reason to postpone this downtime. Otherwise, it will start taking place Friday, August 04, 12 PM UTC, or a little over 34 hours from now.

It'll be a boring weekend, but I can lurk elsewhere for a while.

By the way, when was the last time someone formally thanked you for keeping all this up? Thank you.

Yay, a software upgrade! ;)

We might even excuse the orange colour of the notification if it's for such a noble purpose. :laugh:

Ragstone rocks are orange... :laugh:

I have just realized that this downtime falls uproots the Writings Challenge schedules. So here is an announcement-within-an-announcement, for those interested:

The July Myst Writings Challenge will close tonight as planned. The voting deadlines will be pushed back indefinitely. Basically I would be planning for ten days to two weeks after MystCommunity resurfaces.

Until then, I would advise you to save the entries locally or print them, so that you can read them offline at your leisure, and be ready to vote when the board is up again.

Not to mention that this is an opportunity for many people, now that we will briefly have no way to post on MystCommunity, to participate in reading and voting in the Writings Challenges! :)

I'm sorry for the sudden rescheduling, but we will just have to make do.

SBS ;)
