    Hi everybody,

    If you've been browsing PhantomPilots in the last few days, you've likely run into some persistent errors affecting site access, posting, etc. We're aware of the problem and apologize for the inconvenience. Adam (the owner/site admin) is actively working on resolving these issues, both immediately and in the long-term. As of this morning, things seem to be a bit better, but additional resources/improved hosting are also being pursued.

    There's an active thread on this subject in the General Discussion forum here: http://www.phantompilots.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17561. The mods are going to keep things organized by locking duplicate threads on this topic and directing conversation to the main thread above. If you have any individual/private concerns about this, please feel free to PM Adam or any of the mods listed on the main forums list (http://www.phantompilots.com/viewforum.php?f=1).

    We'll update this announcement thread or post a new one when we know more.

    Thanks very much for your continued patience!

    SERVER MOVE IS HAPPENING SATURDAY Morning between 9 am and noon central time on JUNE 14th (USA time). Take some time off from Phantom Pilots! Not sure how long the outage will last but I will post here when we are back up and running on the new system!

    From the server admin who will be handling the move regarding downtime:

    Regarding downtime: "Around 15-20 minutes. It might even be less than that. But since the changes might take a while to propagate around the world, there is a possibility that some users might see the site at the old server for around 24 hours. This is due to their local misconfigured DNS server that caches older records for times longer than required. This cannot be worked around in any way, but for the average user, the downtime will not be more than 15-20 minutes."

    Ok, we are on the new server at http://new.phantompilots.com

    This is only temporary while we wait a few days for the DNS to update.

    Due to the way cookies work in your browser, you may get automatically logged out and forced to log back in. This is only temporary until we get back to www.phantompilots.com in a few days. We are off 1and1 forever!
