We have finally done our testing of the new site on our Dedicated Server and will be leaving ReliableSite.Net (and IIS) for good TONIGHT. I will be taking the forums down at 1AM ET/10PM PT to do the database backup and transfer to the new site, and then I will be switching our DNS records over. The main website will still be available as no part of it is really updated during that time.The downtime could be anywhere from an hour to four hours, depending on how long it takes your DNS to propagate. (The actual database migration will take about 15-20 minutes.)Once the forums are back up, there *may* be some issues with stability. I have optimized what I can out of the MySQL database on that server, however I won't really know until we actually get a lot of people on the site at once. I'll try to keep a watch on it and see if we're good. Let me know if you run into any problems.ONLY the Forums will be down during the transition. The main site, chat, community, girls, shop, and wiki will all still be operational.

big cheers for bobby, rabid, and the Zster for all their hard work making this move a reality. Once the site is moved we'll begin addressing the next steps in design and functionality.
