On Monday, January 2nd at approximately 10:15 PST the Tech Team has started the forum upgrade . This downtime will be used to upgrade the forums’ current software from VBulletin 3 to VBulletin 4. Due to the size of our forums this is a very strenuous and time consuming process, with that we cannot give an ETA at this time. I will continue to update this post as information becomes available.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience this may cause and will try our best to get the forums up as soon as we can.
