Downtime 12-13 March 2009 & Upgrade Note
« on: 13 March 2009, 07:17:34 PM »
Hey guys,

I just wanted to apologise for the downtime over the last day. Essential maintenance work was being carried out on our server, which should have only resulted in the site being offline for a couple of minutes - however due to a fault at the data centre, the server never came back online automatically as it should have done. Eventually it came back online this afternoon and everything is as it was. We are now back online and everything is now running fine. Before the rumour mills start, we were not hacked and nobody else was involved.

Hopefully this won't happen again, but I thought we needed a way of finding out about server/site issues if it ever does, so during the downtime I setup a Twitter account for the workedshoot group. Any site/server issues will be posted here as they happen.

Hope this clears everything up and thanks for your patience!

Will

We are planning on upgrading to the latest version of vBulletin over the weekend.

Whilst we hope this to be completed as soon as possible, the Shoutbox and Members Who have Visited Today features that we currently have are incompatible with the new version, and thus those features will be unavailable until we are able to rectify this.

8-)

As I said, we plan to upgrade it over the weekend - until then, apart from the couple of missing features, you should be able to do everything as normal :)

Glad to see all is back up and running and by the end of the weekend nice and smoothly with the applied upgrades.

I've never realised how boring it is when this place is down. Even when it's at it's quietest and not much is happening, it's still somewhere to hang out and read stuff.

Bookmarked the twitter page, seem's useful.

I was quite annoyed at first thinking Mayhem had been hacked once again, and thought it wouldn't be back up for yonks. Glad it was only minor.

Good to see things back to it's normal-self.

The major upgrade work has now been completed. As this was ahead of schedule, we have brought the site back online. Minor tweaks will now be made throughout the day, however this should not have any impact on you using the forum.

Thanks again for your patience!
