All the Nexus sites and the forums were brought down today from 1pm to 9pm GMT so that I could upgrade all the sites to their latest versions.
The upgrades went down without a hitch and there were no unforeseen problems during the upgrade process. However there could be plenty of unforeseen problems with the new site code that my own personal testing hasn't picked up. The scope of testing I do as an individual, and as the creator of the site is very limited compared to the scope provided by the some 150,000 different people that use the Nexus sites each day. So please, if you see an error on the site or you think something isn't working as intended then fire off a quick report to me using the site contact form, let me know via PMs on the forums, post a comment on this article or make a new thread in the feedback forum. A couple of minutes of time can save me and the whole community a lot of time and aggro.
It'll be my job over the coming 48 hours to monitor the servers and benchmark performance and insure the changes I have made have actually been for the better. Some fundamental changes have been made to the way the sites interact with the various databases the sites make use of, so if things seem slow then let me know and I'll be on it.
The full change log for these updates is available in the previous news post.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this period.
