As you may have seen yesterday, SpielByWeb we be moving over to a new host over the next couple days, as we have outgrown our current host. I am hoping that this will be a seamless process, with very little downtime.

To keep within our resources on the current host, I have disabled Tikal for the time being. I will contact all users in Tikal games when the site is ready for them to take their turns.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

It's not so bad, Mikael. I'm amazed that you've managed to turn things around so quickly. Have you given any more thought to accepting monetary donations...?

Could you send a mass email to all players that the site is back up? If I wasn't obsessive about checking, I wouldn't have realized it's my turn to play in my games.

given that he is moving the server over tonight I would think he should wait before sending any mass e-mails. I'd be annoyed to get an e-mail about the site being back up and come over tonight and find it down for the switch.

Once everything is stable again, it wouldn't hurt to respawn the current "its your turn" message for each active game.

I keep seeing posts on BGG that Tikal is up, but I don't see it yet? What am I missing? Still just beta testing. Anxious to give that game a try on here.

Thank you. Also saw Santiago and other games coming which will be cool!!

Thx,

Nishikawa

Tikal was up, but was disabled because apparently the server was being overwhelmed. Once the announced move to a new host has been completed, I would imagine that Tikal will be available again.

Moral... have patience, young grasshopper. Smile

Still within my budget, so still no donations wanted. But thanks for asking!
