Hey All,

Just wanted to give you a heads up. Sometime within the next 2 weeks (could be as early as tomorrow, but probably not) we are going to be upgrading the forum software. This means the following:

  • The forums will be down, probably for a couple of days as we need to do a lot of testing, backups and configuring. All of that takes time in a forum this size.
  • The Links section will be going away. If you want to keep any links, I suggest you bookmark the actual pages now. We may revisit this section in the future with different software, but it's up in the air.
  • If you are in the middle of any transactions through the website, we suggest that you find alternate means of communication with the seller/buyer/trader. You will not be able to use the website to communicate about transactions while the site is down.
We will try to give additional notice before we bring the site down, but we are not sure how much notice will be given. It could be anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Regards,
The Arachnoboards Team

Consider this some additional notice.

The boards will most likely going down for the upgrade sometime tomorrow, January 28th 2020. I will try to give one more additional notice an hour before they go down, but not promising anything.

Regards,
MrD

Sorry for any inconvenience.
