To show their support to the Round Table (or maybe they are performing maintenance on their hardware...), Ubisoft kindly scheduled a <a href="/http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/ ... 61035">six hour downtime on February 6th</a>, from 7AM GMT to 1PM GMT (2AM EST to 8AM EST): "During this timeframe, all Ubisoft forums will be shut down and unavailable."



You are getting CPU Quota errors here because, on January 25th, our current host had decided to show us (the hard way) that shared hosting isn't enough anymore, after two years of decent performance. We still haven't found a new home for Celestial Heavens and its forums, but we are evaluating several options. Web hosting shopping is tricky, particularly with a resource-hungry site such as this one. That's why I cannot provide any specific date at the moment, but I would really like to have more news soon.

If you would like to take a look at the original page visit this link:

Dear Ubisoft. Thank you very much for your support. Next time, we'd like a gift certificate instead. :)

Maybe Ubi's seal of approval? :P
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

lol, Ubi indeed supports CH in trouble. :P They probably noticed CH forums are down and decided that it would be cool to have a downtime in Ubi forums as well.

This means the CH page has to be relocated to another server? Will a new adress be required then?

Yeah, I had mention this about UBI's shut down in the previous topic, "Round Table Temporarily Down"... It took me a long time to get logged into this topic today as I kept getting the error message, CH had exceeded its limit or something like that.. Anyway, I am hoping you will find a new place soon Angelspit and I will follow CH where ever you go.. Actually I just hope you find a place as CH is the Main Heroes place for me, without CH, I would be lost. No one else compares.

The move will be transparent as the domain will lead you to the new location. No need to change your bookmarks.

I assume that’s because you own the domain name and that will transfer to the provider you decide to use.



This break from the forum is giving me far too much time to work on maps; I need the forums back so I can be distracted again.

I've finished revising for the three exams I have tomorrow and I have nowhere to relax a bit :( I think I'll start re-reading Gothrak and the RTW.

On my end, I've got a dull Sunday to look forward to (not even my surfing of the Wizards of the Coast forums can calm my boredom ). :(



CH eternal!!!!



Question: Um...do we keep our post counts if the domain moves?

For that matter do we keep anything? (like the profiles, avatars...etc.)

Must... post... something...

So how's stuff going, guys? I'd even accept "soon" as an answer.

Careful Lucky D, Sikon clearly has 'soon' trademarked when referring to this situtation, as clearly written "soon™", in the other thread.

"going along just dandy, minus missing the forums of course .... you? "



hehe. I feel the same way. I hope the forums will be back up soon.



I've had a few rough days recently (personal stuff mostly...the reason why I started the Love Thread kind of stuff :P...). But, all in all, I'm ok ;).
