Expect a little downtime tomorrow while we shuffle around some data. A specific group of NG users will be excited with the resulting update!

I really hope this update has to do with the medals not registering in people's profile's.

I'm guessing either Audio or Art folk. Otherwise, Lit folk might have a good day, hell I dunno.

Tom's prolly just fucking with us and is going to replace all emoticons with genitalia.

Around what time would you say this will be happening?
I need to know when I will be getting outside and seeing the sun for the first time in a long time.

We were also very fortunate to enlist the aid and participation of veteran video game music composer Jeroen Tel, of Maniacs of Noise, who has kindly agreed to donate a small amount of his time to help judge this contest.

We know it's not that, because the update pertains to a certain group of users, not the entirety of us.

I hope it's the lit portal! If it were, say, a better documentation for the NG API, they wouldn't need downtime. A new portal, however, will obviously need lots of it.

Fingers crossed. :)

Oh shit. How long do you think Newgrounds be down?

A specific group of NG users will be excited with the resulting update!

Is this will be a supporter only thing? What will it be? An edit button on the BBS for supporters? A block user function on the BBS for supporters? What?

Now, I know there's no way to tell how long it'll take to complete, but can you give us an idea of a start time? I need to know how this will affect my attitude for the day. Being without my Newgrounds... rough!

I'm hoping it's the Lit portal. The latest new "Writer" and "Reader" auras have been hinting at a Lit portal even more.

The Collabinator and featuring MWC13 on the front page also hinted at the Lit Portal. :)

I don't require or expect any special privilege as a supporter, and hope the new functionality will benefit the users as well as the producers of NG. In the spirit of Thomas Paine, I'd say privilege breeds inequities aimed squarely at our souls.

The most notable new features (social networking) lend themselves to reliable contact, especially to the collaborating producers here. Perhaps we could get a specific start time? You might think the outage might be a minute or three, but what if something gets shuffled incorrectly? One less variable, by setting a start time, may help save someones time and prevent data-loss.

A set time for the downtime would be great if you already have it planned. Of course, I may be at school.

Serisly hoping for a Lit portal!
