New Contributor and Global Moderator

Posted on 26th Feb 2017 12:56:07

In light of the recent upload by Mezzy Chizra to the Crusader 2 downloads section, it is simply impossible to ignore the vast amount of effort which has been put into The Viking Crusade campaign.

Therefore, we have decided to promote Mezzy Chizra to the rank of Contributor with immediate effect!

Congratulations Mezzy Chizra, and I hope as many of you as possible take the time to play the very well created campaign that has been created.

We've also decided to promote Crusader1307 to the rank of Global Moderator for his outstanding work in the History section and Open Castle Inn - but also site-wide. Crusader1307 is one of the most active members by far, even more than myself sometimes, and this is a very well-deserved and overdue promotion for hours and hours of hard work and dedication, which our gratitude and thanks cannot possibly put into terms.

To both of you - thank you very much for making the site the place it is today!! Your contributions cannot possibly be put into terms. A big thank you from everyone, and enjoy your new promotions! smile

Scheduled downtime - 11/2/2017 to 12/2/2017

Hi everyone,

There will be some scheduled downtime next Saturday and Sunday (11th and 12th February) to move the website to another server, I'll be putting the site in maintenance mode around 9 AM UK time. I've already started some of the transfer, so it should simply be a case of updating the name servers, which can take up to the full 48 hours specified above. The most likely outcome is that it will be substantially shorter than this time (usually it's around 4 hours for me), and you can manually clear your DNS cache if you'd like to view the site sooner than this.

I'll also be making a backup of the site and downloading it on the 10th February, so while everything still will be transferred across, I'd recommend posting anything before around 18:00 UK time on the 10th (just to make life a bit easier when transferring everything else across).

I'll keep everyone updated within this topic - thanks.
