    Good news, everyone! We're getting ready to make a our first (and hopefully last) big server move next month.

    We know that our current host, GoDaddy, has not been kind to many of you -- especially to our users in Europe. Periodic server errors and occasional outright flim-flammery have been too common for our liking. But thanks to our acquisition of a tech admin Shi, and thanks to him donating some of his precious free time to our cause, we're finally ready to address these issues by moving to another, hopefully better, host.

    The move is currently scheduled to take place during the first weekend of September, from the 3rd to the 4th. Hopefully the whole thing goes well and the move lasts only a few hours, but we're reserving the entire weekend in case condiment-related issues arise and further work will be required. And of course any and all expenses paid for this move will be reflected in September's monthly financial report as per usual. We intend to move everything, from the database to the domain, so it'll be the most excitement our accountants have seen since the Great Indiegogo Deposit back in May.

    "What a hectic month!"

    If you're keen to stay up-to-date with how the move is going you can do the Facebook thing or let us Tweet at you from time to time while the whole thing is going down (or up, we hope!). Again, though, we've no reason to believe that this move will be anything other than buttery smooth, calorie-rich sailing.

    Thanks for your patience throughout all of this, especially those of you who are disproportionately affected by our current host's failings. We hope that this move will solve most and hopefully all of your issues!

    The rougher the seas, the smoother we sail. No wait, that only applies in POTC.

    If we are relying on @Shi then I expect the server move to take about 2 years. LOL.

    Just playing shi. You still my dawg. Either way that's good news and hopefully we have a smooth transition.

    Coolio, can't say I've personally had any errors since the Hotmail debacle when I signed up, but happy to hear the Europeans will have a better ride.

    Server has given me no problems so far, hopefully it continues to do the same. Best to Sakuga.

    The database and server files have been moved over to a new host.
    Hopefully, everything is stable and good to go.

    The site might be a bit weird for about 48 hours as it updates across the world.
    Essentially, your internet node needs to refresh if the site is running slow.

    Before you report any issues, make sure you clear your browser's cache or specifically, anything that has to do with SC.
    Hit Ctrl + F5 for a hard refresh (forces your browser to redownload most files for the site).

    If you still run into issues such as things not showing correctly or you have a performance problem, let me know.
