Several hours : /
Oh really? That's 'long'? Haha, no problem. I thought you meant a week! Several hours is no sweat, I'll just sleep. ;D

Well, how much trouble is it to remind people that we have an IRC channel? People can just congregate there during the down time.

I was guessing long something around the lines of 24 hours, maybe a bit longer :P

So it'll be just a few hours for the core to be back (the basic forum), but quite a bit longer for the parts that need special replacement like Shoutbox, Arcade, My Topics, etc...?

Depending on how long the shoutbox will be inactive that might cause a bit of an influx on the chat (considering people know how to reach that)...

I'm assuming whatever you stored in My Topics will be gone, so everyone will have to backup that list?

Is there anything else we should worry about backing up?

What effect will this have on labels in private messages?

Assuming that it doesn't mess with recent posts, or even post history, I don't think backing up My Topics is overly necessary, since only lazy people won't go into post history to retrieve the topics.

I tend to use 'replies to your posts' to keep track of my threads anyways.

My Topics is a hack on your notifications. So you can just retrieve the list from there until I clear them. Bookmarks will be available almost immediately. The new shoutbox shouldn't take very long either, really. Of everything the arcade is the tedious one.

Question: With the new server that you just purchased and said upgrade being done on said new server... Will there still be a significant amount of down time on the site?  Call me stupid if you will, but I don't know how putting new servers in place and doing upgrades for them works.  ;D

I think Veks said that the switch / transfer would take several hours. :)

I will be giving a better update of how long it takes after I have my ducks in a row this weekend : ) The new server's disk and memory throughput appear to be about 50% faster than our VPS here, to say nothing of having two cores to play with. I could potentially have it set up within an hour again, though we'll still have to play the IP game for a few days.

I'll edit the first post or make a better announcement after I complete the move : )

It might be just me, but let me know when the die roller is up again. I just can't find it, and the links seem not to be working any more. And, well, I'd really need it for my games ;).
