10/09/2012 Traffic Spike

With in the first hour of the day we had 10,000 unique visitors, by this time we are closing in on 100,000. Which at one point used to be our yearly traffic. Expect site trouble. The influx is started from reddit but I don't see which article.

The vast majority of the work is completed on the upgrades for RW.

The most notable difference for our users is we have jumped 3 major releases to the latest version of MW. We are now running 1.19.1. If you want to know about the major changes review these pages:

Most of the extensions have been upgraded to newer releases as well but should continue to function normally. There were also major upgrades behind the scenes with our software and database but these should be mostly "silent" for normal users.

Continue to report in strange goings on at the RW technical support page.

7/22/2012 Downtime

UPDATE: Everything is moving along as planned, a series of database updates will have to run for many hours yet. I will be heading to bed and hoping to finalize things in the morning. Depending on issues hopefully we will be done Sunday afternoon.

There will be substantial downtime all day Sunday as I am implementing a whole lot of upgrades at all levels. The downtime will likely begin early Sunday with a site lockdown, while readable the site will not be able to be edited. As the day progresses the site will likely be totally down at several points or return strange errors or nothing at all. I will try and keep updates posted on progress as well as a more substantial explanation about what pertinent changes to the site users/readers will need to know about.

5/26 planned down time

The planned maintenance for 5/26/2012 has begun. Estimated uptime is about 4am EST. This is a behind the scenes maintenance so there will be no noticeable change in the site. If there are any problems or issues I will be updating this post.
