Exclamation Upgrading again - Worth a quick read!
Hey Guys,

Just a quick note today. First of all I'm really sorry about the bumpy ride lately with server outages, Mario Mayhem has grown very quickly and we have outgrown our new server.

We will be moving shortly to a brand new server that will hopefully cater for all our needs. We will be giving it a month trial and then worst case moving once more but I'm really hoping it won't come to it.

This new server is really expensive ($90 a month) so I may have to introduce some sort of donation button on the site to try and cover at least some of the costs, but we will see how we go!

I just wanted to give everyone the heads up about the move as there may be some posts lost again over this transition period. If you have something important you want to post just hold off until I can confirm we have moved.

This move is planned for tomorrow!

Thank you all for helping MM become so popular, I've said this a few times but I never imagined it would become such a big website!

Woo, I wish I had a bank account, credit card, or some other way to donate. Tongue

Let's hope this moving goes without any serious problems! Tongue

Wow, that's expensive ;u;. I knew some servers were expensive, but I thought that was only for like, sites with millions of visitors...now I shudder to think what kind of money they have to pay x_x.

Glad that these server issues will be cleared up soon~

On the new server now! Everything went really smoothly so I don't think we lost any posts or anything! Hopefully we can say good bye to that dreadful error 500 page.

Great to see you guys around and active still too! Smilie_v2_Mario

Hmm. If that donation button ever pops up, I'll be sure to beg and plead my mom to make a donation. (jk)
