The Distributed Proofreaders site is scheduled to be completely unavailable between 2 pm and 10 pm server time on Saturday 13 July 2019 as we upgrade our forum software and update our forum database tables.
We hope that the update will not take the full 8 hours. If the upgrade and data conversion and related checks are completed early, the site will return sooner.
Thank you for your patience. As you wait for Distributed Proofreaders to become available again, please feel free to browse through the excellent articles in this Blog.
We’ll keep this blog post updated with progress during the outage. You can also find us in the pgdp Jabber conference room and on Facebook.
Update 5:20pm EDT: Site is back up and operational, thank you for your patience!
Update 5:00pm EDT: Testing and troubleshooting of change underway.
Update 3:00pm EDT: Proceeding as planned.
Update 2:00pm EDT: Maintenance started.
