Neowin Forums being upgraded (now back online)

The forums are being upgraded from Invision Power Board 3.2.2 to 3.2.3 at the moment, so the forums are temporarily unavailable for the time being.

We expect the downtime to be minimal, and we thank you for your patience.

Neowin IRC is still available, join us! Connect details here: http://www.neowin.net/irc/

Meanwhile you can waste a few minutes by entering in our Sony Ericsson Xperia ray giveaway, or read a couple of reviews we've recently put up:

Battlefield 3 review: Pure multiplayer beauty
Nokia N9 review: It's incredible

Update: The upgrade has completed!

Something shifty is going on, because at the moment it is bouncing back with 403s.

Also, have avatars gone walkies?

IPB's 'offline' page is useless, its far more efficient to fix some of the issues by locking you guys out totally, than displaying that, should only be for about a minute more.

Had not noticed any bugs as such, maybe slightly long page loading times occasionally - looking forward to the upgrade all the same

I thought so to.

Just wondering how long is the upgrade going to take? I had a personal conversation running having some technical issues subject to troubleshooting and help from another member.

Any significant Neowin update/upgrade always takes at least 3 days...

This actually has 100's of bug fixes that affect our members, it isn't a patch upgrade release which we also do and you all never know about it

I'm pretty sure Monday is part of the Week.. It was announced for the weekend.. so technically no announcement made for a Monday shut down.

How long is the downtime going to be? I say 6 hours.

With Neowin's trackrecord more likje 6 days...

It was.
I did see the announcement in the forums, but you guys have to find a better way to announce it. Not everyone is going to see that...Add a sticky or something on the front page or a banner, something that makes it more visible.

I concur.
