This is advanced notice that introduction of another database server tomorrow will require us to "freeze" the forums for a short time while it synchs with the active database, during this time the forums area of the site will be inaccessible, instead a warning message will be displayed. We have chosen to do this work tomorrow (26th October) AM UK time (early AM US time). All being well the whole process shouldn't take more than thirty minutes. Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.
