    Poll about server move - Please Vote!

    Ok, here's the deal. I can move to our new servers without taking the site completely down. It may take a bit longer, and there may be intermittent outages (for a minute or two here and there).

    HOWEVER, to do it, I'd have to close the site to new posts, PM's, and registrations, because anything that changed between the time I started the move and finished the move would be lost anyway. But this would give everyone a chance to continue reading forums, at least.

    The other thing is, tonight is a busy site night. I could move it this afternoon, it would take a couple of hours, and it would be done before primetime. OR, I could wait for the weekend and do it then, but we have to suffer with the overloads we've been experiencing for the rest of the week.

    SO, the vote is up to you. You have 2.5 hours to vote, because at 4pm Eastern, if the vote is to move today, I'm doing it.

    Please vote!

    I think it's like a bandaid - just do it quick and get it over with. But I really prefer that you do it whichever way is most convenient to you, John.

    I say just do it and get it over with, John.
    Getting lost will help you find yourself.

    John, I think you should just go ahead and do it today before primetime. I don't think that much reality TV news is going to break between 4 PM and primetime.

    As for whether to keep the boards open for reading or not, if it's easier to close them down, I would just do that.

    I agree with hepcat. Just go ahead and get it over with.

    I agree with everyone above. Do what is more convenient to you. We'll just have to spend time with our family

    I won't know what to do at work if you do it today.

    This weekend, but keep the boards open to read. I voted cuz you said "please".

    I'd say it's pretty overwhelmingly in favor of moving today, so I'm going to go ahead and do that. Because it's quicker and easier for me, I'm going to shut the site down while I do it.

    I'll post the link to the chat room for those who want to chit-chat while the site's down, and those who want updates once in a while on where we're at.

    Thanks, everyone!
