Server Upgrade

The server will be going down on Thursday, April 13 at 5 PM CDT for an upgrade. The upgrade should only take 2 to 5 hours. This will affect only the wesite and tracker

Website Upgrade Weekend

Various parts of the website will be going down this weekend to be upgraded in order to address various issues with the front page, the wiki, and forums.

Donation Goal Met

Thanks to everyone, we've met our goal of $500 USD to keep our server running for another year!

Forum and Wiki Upgrade Scheduled June 16

The forums and wiki will be going down on June 16, 2016 at 7:30 PM CDT for an upgrade. The process should not take more than an hour or two. During this time, the forums and wiki will be inaccessible. The front page and tracker will be unaffected and accessible as usual.

Tracker fixed

There was an issue with the tracker from restarting the server last night that I did not catch. It has since been resolved.

Password Reset

There has been news that the software we use for the front page may have been hacked. I have taken the precaution of replacing the old installation with a new patched one and testing the old one for any modifications. It does not appear that we were affected, but not all hacks will leave a trace. Therefore, I have taken action to force a password reset on every forum account. Please make sure to reset your wiki password as well!

Server Donations Part 2

Due to an overwhelming response ($600+ USD donated in about 3 hours), we have taken down the donation links while we get everything sorted out.

Thank you for the response and kindness!

Site Maintenance

The forums and front page will be going down for maintenance on Monday, May 21 at 12:00 AM CDT (6:00 AM BST).  During this time the forums will go down to be moved to a new URL (forums.tvnihon.com) and then the front page will go down for an upgrade.

Tags:

Site URLs

Over the next couple of days the URLs on the site will be changing.  The tracker has been moved to http://tracker.tvnihon.com.  Please update your bookmarks to reflect this.  There is a permanent redirect in place so the old links will continue to work.  The forums will be moved to http://forums.tvnihon.com within the next few days if all goes well with the tracker.  This has been done because the site is growing (we will be adding a wiki soon) and the new URLs should make navagation easier.

Server Downtime!

There will be some server downtime tonight as I transfer everything over to the new server.  The process will take a couple hours.  Once this is done, the site will be up for most people fairly quickly; however, for some it may take up to 24 hours for the site to come back up.

Edit:  By tonight, I mean the early morning of 5/21 in the central daylight timezone.

Server Maintenance

Over the next week, I will be upgrading and moving around various things on the server, so the website may go down unexpectedly for a few minutes or so at times.  I will try to keep the downtime to a minimum and I will do upgrades that noticeably affect the website early in the morning (roughly 2-3 AM CDT (GMT - 5?)). 

As with the forums, they will be going down for maintenance between 2-3 AM CDT on Sunday, March 27 for anywhere up to an hour or two depending on how well things go.
