I am thinking of upgrading the forum to the LONG awaited 2.0 Next Tuesday on Sept 28, 2004. While I'm upgrading, I will shut down the forum. I'm not sure how long it will take but Expect it to start around 2-3PM EST and probably last till evening or so as I test it out and add a bunch of new features. One feature which will allow people to become premium members and get tons of upgrades to their account for a low low rate
Also I am testing the new server by moving a few less populat sites over there first. Once those are transfered without problems, I will move AF. Downtime is expect to be around 2-3 days. I expect to do this in late october. Once I moved AF to the new server, I will launch a TON of new content onto AF. If you think AF is popular now? wait till I finishing moving it over to the new server I will annouce it when the time comes.
EDIT: Will do it a day earlier!
