Our provider will be doing major datacenter maintenance on January 19th (west coast USA). They have announced a maximum of 24 hours of downtime but offer a "best case" scenario of 15 hours. As the window is large, you should be prepared for all Guild of Writers internet resources, including the forum, site, wiki, and the Gehn Shard, to be unavailable for that day. Please note that the Deep Island Shard runs on a different server and will not be affected.
Downtime is always frustrating, but this will come with several benefits--namely improved network connectivity
On a totally unrelated note, the forum now supports Tapatalk
for a better mobile experience.
