    When: 24th May 2100hrs (9pm) EST
    Duration: Until it's Done

    At the above time, the site will go into maintenance mode and then the process begun to move it from shared to (virtual) private hosting. This is being done to resolve the slowdown and stalling issues the site is having during peak times - allow us to ramp up (and down) CPU/memory as needed.

    The Chat room will still be available via http://webchat.globalgamers.net/?channels=wildstar during the maintenance but all other site services will be disabled - this ensures that no database updates take place and that no content is lost during the server migration.

    Any questions, feel free to post them here.

    None. If there was, I'd give it :) I'll be reactivating the site as soon as possible but it's a one-way track this time - as soon as I start the process I'm stuck until it completes since I don't want to have data missed/lost during transition.

    Sucks, I know, but them's the breaks! I'm hoping to be done in time to get some sleep on Friday if that's any consolation? Because otherwise I'm pulling an all-nighter! (again!)

    Right... the site is now upgraded - we're running the website itself on a Private Server (the database itself remains on a public server for now).

    Since the database has gone nowhere... we're simultaneously running on the old and new servers for a time which brings it's own headaches.... If you post while on the old server you MAY cause issues (most notably if you include any attachments to your posts).

    I'd rather you not cause me that sort of headache so... here's an easy way you can tell what server you are on.
    • Go to this image
      • If it says you're <REDACTED> you're looking at the old server - hold off posting!
      • If it says you can stay, then post freely.
    The new IP for the site is 173.236.252.12 - if you know how to modify your own DNS records then feel free to do so! This wiki article may help!

    We'll be tracking the memory and CPU use of the site for about a week before locking down what this will be costing me ;) So use the site normally and we'll see how much of a resource hog WSC really is!

    Yay it's fixed. I was <REDACTED> earlier though. : / Shouldn't be a big deal though if I do lose anything since it won't be much.

    Well now it says that I can stay. Hardly a Dominion leaning server.

    So you're going to be playing mechari? Metal boobs 'n heels or no?

    It's only a matter of time until sexified robots become the outlet of pleasure for the lusty futuristic man's desires!

    I didn't think so. You didn't seem like the mechari type, or the draken for that matter. You're either going to be a cassian or the unknown race. I'd bet on cassian.

    Damn you! I thought they lift the NDA as soon as i didn't see the message anymore. Then i noticed that small tab which says "NDA".

    That reminds me of a certain robot from Fallout New Vegas that could be inspiration for a Wildstar character. I wonder how long they will allow our character names to be, I'm thinking that Fully Integrated Security Technotronic Officer is most likely too long a name...

    You know what? Scratch that, probably not the best idea for a character, I think it's better left in Fallout. Moving on. ;)
