Comic Vine Is Moving Servers This Morning

You may experience some oddness on the site this morning. Apologies for any disruptions.

Moving time for this little guy!

Giant Bomb and Comic Vine will be in read-only mode from 7 AM until approximately 9 AM Pacific Time on Thursday while we move our servers to a new colocation facility. During this time, posts to the forums, wiki edits, personal messages, and other site changes may not be copied to our new servers, so you may not wish to make any major changes or posts during this time. However, you can still read all available posts and content. After 9 AM, you should be pointed at the new location, but if you continue to see a red bar across the top of the site, you may need to refresh your DNS. You can find some instructions on how to do that here, although the specific techniques will vary based on your operating system.

Apologies for the disruption. In the long run we hope that this move will improve site stability and reduce downtime.

Meh, I need a break for this site anyway. You know, I guess you could say we will be locked in read only mode, meaning I'm getting out before....

Will this fix the glitches?

Will this eliminate haters hating because they are one centimeter outside their beloved comfort zone

UNACCEPTABLE!

@ptigrusmagus: You missed a question mark.

I'm not hating, but when you get sent to bad getaway for tenth time in one day, your profile background and image are constantly vanishing, and new glitches seem to surface every time one gets fixed you might begin to get a little bit bitter.

Please tell me that I will be able to upload images using my apple and mobile devices!

I really want to make a few appreciation threads for The Sandman, some Valiant characters, a Saga one and maybe a Transformers thread or two. (All of which I need images for it to be good)

Will it be the same URL address and everything?

@captainmarvel4ever: It's 2 hours. Not a really big break. Hell, I'll be asleep.

Yeah I actually misread the statement. But hey, at least I wormed in a bad pun.
