Yes, at long last the oft-discussed but never-seen update to DPWR is coming! It will be happening in stages, rather than all at once, because the Library is giving me more trouble than I anticipated, and the News section will be similarly difficult as a result. However, the Forum, Archive and Gallery are done and ready, and I'm tired of not having them updated, so they'll be going up tomorrow.
As a result of this update, the Library will be read-only for a week or two. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause the writers who frequent DPWR, but I haven't forgotten you, I just want to be sure that what gets rolled out for the Library is worth your time. Also, News will only be readable on the front page and the soon-to-be-unleashed Community page (now with content!), so get it while it's hot. You will also not be able to comment on news for the same reasons the Library will be out of commission. FOr those who post news and then comment on it with updates, please be aware that nobody will be able to read those updates until the commenting system has been fully sorted out. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience.
I do not presently have an estimate for when the downtime will occur or exactly how long the site will be offline. However, I anticipate this process taking at least an hour, if not several hours. I will do everything I can to make sure that the site is back up ASAP, and will be doing as much as possible to minimize the impact of the downtime on the Archive especially.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. See you tomorrow on the flip side.
