Services maintenance

We will be upgrading network services to version 1.8.3 of Anope during the morning (around 11am EDT) of Sunday, 21 March 2010. The upgrade is being done to ensure that we have the latest bug fixes for our network services. (None of these bugs have been triggered on the network yet but it's better to be proactive about these things.)

During the upgrade process, services will be offline for a few minutes. We will keep this downtime to a minimum. No registrations or other information stored in services will be changed as part of this upgrade.

Welcome to our new test links

To improve service for our European users and to replace the recently departed, we have accepted link applications for two new European servers, run by CuttingEdge and run by truls. We welcome the admins to staff and we hope that their servers pass the test link process with flying colors.

Update: Due to unforseen events, this has been postponed to Sunday, 18 May.
