Tonight, February 06 2006, at 23:00 PST (2:00 EST), there will be a scheduled downtime of the forums that will last about 2 hours. The forums are being moved from the server they are on now to a different hoster, and will be available under a different domain name.
Access through ap.animemedia.org should still work for a little while, but it is not guaranteed that this link will stay up forever. The preferred d URL for the new forums is forums.arlongpark.net, or the new forum's new domain (which will be general knowledge after we're done setting it up).
We are hoping that some of the changes we are making will fix the problems with the forums crashing under heavy load.
