View Full Version : Forum Maintenance (1/2)

August 9th, 2016, 06:40 PM
Hi everyone,

As I mentioned in another post recently, the admins will be doing some updates and changes to the forums over the coming days and weeks. For the most part, these aren't any cosmetic or "noticeable" changes, but instead are more backend improvements for the overall stability of the site. We're going to do our best to carry this out in two parts:

The first will be tonight, when the forums will be down for around a half hour for a minor change at approximately 9:00 PM EST tonight.

Please see the following thread for the next announcement

Thanks for your consideration,
The VT Staff

Unfortunately, this took a few hours longer than anticipated. I'll spare the technical details, but the long and short of it is that an automated script that was used to update a number of aspects of the server's "back end" did not deploy properly, and had to be reverted to an earlier installation, causing the extra downtime. The update did complete successfully following this automated error, however, and as a result this "phase" is complete. If you have any further questions, feel free to drop me a PM
