After Oblivion's release in Asia the site has seen a significant growth in traffic from 950,000 unique visits and 8,500,000 page impressions to 1,500,000 unique visits and 14,000,000 page impressions each month. I have just purchased a new server for the site and forums to keep it upgraded to meet the current demand and hopefully keep things in check for the foreseeable future.
Thankfully The Planet
, my server provider for the website (not including file servers), have a double-up promotion on at the moment that has meant I've been able to double the bandwidth on this server to 6,000GB from 3,000GB and add in some quad core xeons at the same expense as the current server that only has dual core xeons. Good news I'd say!Approximately 6 hours of downtime is scheduled for this coming Tuesday 1st of April starting from 2pm to 8pm GMT.
Understand that this time might decrease or increase depending on how the process goes, but the 6 hours alotted is accounting for a few minor unforeseen hiccups along the way.
It is important I take TESNexus offline during this time to make sure that new files, comments, forum posts and all the statistical data generated during the transfer period are not lost.
Thank you for your understanding.PS. just realised the date might make this news hard to believe, but I promise it's true!
