View Full Version : Forum Downtime for Upgrade - May 19 9:00 PM GMT

Hi all,

We've been testing a new forum system over the last few weeks and we plan to upgrade the ArtRage forums to this on Monday May 19 - 9:00 PM GMT.

The expected downtime is 26 hours as it can take some time to import and thumbnail the large number of images we currently have on our forums. Any posts which are made from now until the forums are shut down for the upgrade will appear on the new forums, as well as any previous posts.

We're pretty excited about this, as the new boards will have better support for attached images ( no more 'download' links, large images will automatically become large clickable thumbnails instead of text links ) and potential for us to add user galleries for everyone as well as a number of other improvements.

If you need support during this time, you can email us at [email protected] There will be a status message on the new forums which we'll update if there are any addtional delays or changes as we go.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the new forums when we're done! 8)
