Server upgrade coming soon
« on: January 26, 2013, 10:27:08 AM »
Hello everyone! Our current server configuration is struggling to keep up with our server needs so an upgrade is essential. Sometime in mid to late Feb we will be moving the site to a new more powerful dedicated server. During this time the site/forum may not be accessible. The downtime could be anywhere from 4 hours to 48 hours.
Once I get the new server ordered I will put out concrete dates and times.

You are...A GOD!!!
I love it when people come into a message board and immediately begin to mix it up.  I mean, Jesus, at least say hello!  Do you walk into a room full of strangers, pick a random woman, and tell her she's fat? - buildingcincinnati

And there was much rejoicing.

It's all fun and games until somebody gets burned at the stake.

Now to help subsidize the server and the time put in, I sincerely hope that a number of UO regulars sign up for Premium Memberships!

Great to hear!  I've been getting lots of "the server is under high stress" messages.

That was me. You might want to mention where to sign up for a premium membership. It took me a few minutes to locate it under the "My Proile" section. I guess I just mentioned it  :yap:

An Ignore function would be a  nice incentive for premium membership.
