We’ve recently had performance problems with our existing servers, and our current host is not being responsive enough to help us fix the issues. This had led to some degradation in site performance, including spotty availability of search and private messaging functions. In order to solve the issue, we’ve purchased several new servers (at a very reputable host). We are provisioning these servers and are planning a move for some time mid-next week.
We understand the server issues are annoying. The new servers are much better than the old ones, and should completely fix the problems. We hope you’ll bear with us in the coming days as we work to get the new servers ready._________
