Hello patient WC!ers,
Thank you so much for hanging in there with us. I know it has been a long few days for some of you, as I read many encouraging messages from you along the way during this process. Thank you.
The site was taken down for the past few days for major repairs on the main database that crashed on Wednesday. That database controls our posts and main discussion forums. If you were one of the lucky few that logged in yesterday at some point, you would have seen that you could use chat or the PM system, but only for a short while. The main database became corrupted during the first round of repair and it had to be rebuilt today.
The site is going to still go through the big upgrades and migration to a new host within the coming weeks. There might be more downtime and some interesting error messages before then. On the other side, however, things will be rolling smoothly. I'll keep you posted as much as I can with what is going on and when.
Thanks so much to Bob and Kat for all their long hours rebuilding and repairing.
And thanks to the membership for being patient!
