Tonight, beginning around 23:00 UTC (though probably it will start later) there will be a planned downtime of the majority of the Guild of Writers services including the website, forum, wiki, subversion, and the Gehn Shard. Deep Island and IRC will not be affected. When the maintenance begins, all services will appear to be "down." The purpose of this downtime is to upgrade* the server capabilities and improve website performance. The entire process should take no more than 5 hours. Please note that when the downtime is over, you may not be able to access the website, forum, or wiki for an amount of time due to the need for some updated information to be propagated across the internet.
* We will actually be moving to a brand spanking new server. We are currently on a VPS, which means that what we have looks a lot like a real server, but it's really just one of several virtual machines running on one physical box. We have our own physical box now
