Site news

Posted February 28th, 2024 at 03:35 PM by truth
Hey everybody, this is @Xorlof . We've just gotten word that the service we use to host our server is going to be discontinued next month. This came as a surprise to us. We've hosted Heroscapers there for many years.

We're still going to be here for y'all, as always, but because of the short notice, our migration to a new hosting service will be less orderly than we'd like. We'll work to minimize any disruption, but at the very least there will be a couple of periods of slowness during the next few weeks. Nothing extreme--but eagle-eyed longtime users may sometimes notice an extra quarter second or so for a page to load. There will also be one or more nights where during the early AM hours (US Central time) we may have the site down for a while to test some aspects of the migration. During those times, there will be a page in place explaining the situation.

This loss of our hosting provider comes at a time where we were getting very close to having our long-awaited new site launch. We've been working on it silently for a long time and are excited to shake off some of the cobwebs of the current site. Today's news may push that launch back a couple of weeks--we're not sure at this point--but you can still expect that in the very near future. If you'd like to beta test the new site, send me a PM and I will add you to a list for when we open that up.

I guess better to have this occur now rather than during the NewScape launch when traffic will be higher.

Is the data breach of 2/29 on Scapers related to them shutting down?

New site? While I do have some typing issues on mobile devices on the current vbulletin, I hope it remains nice and basic html.

Migrations are never fun. I'm thinking about all the links in posts that reference other threads and posts based on their sequence IDs... Good Luck!
