As many of you may know, there are times when tPC is very laggy or not available (or you get CloudFlare'd!) and we have been working on getting a new, upgraded server for the site.

finally. YAY!

Now with this new server we'll need to move.. herein lies the reason for this post.

The Community will be taken completely off-line during the moving process. We expect this to last 1 - 3 days (depending on if we run into any major trouble or not.

ALL pokecommunity.com and related services will be unavailable (oekaki, pc battle server, web-based chat, email, etc.) due to dns changes and propagation times.

We expect to begin this move within the next 2 weeks or so and will announce the exact date / time when it nears.

Excellent. Just two questions.

1. Will you keep us updated on Twitter throughout the process?
2. Will this allow the users who are interested in name changes to be able to have those again? I'm sure there are people who are wondering.

I'm not sure if it will allow name changes.. you can be sure the staff will try it and see what happens..

Yes, we will providing updates on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook as the process unfolds.

I'm personally excited for this. I was always a little frustrated with the frequent crashes, and it's great to know that you guys will be fixing the problem.

Well that's great news, although I'm a bit gutted the forum has to be down for a while, thankfully it won't hurt since I'll be at Ever Grande City during that time until PC is back up. The crashes always annoyed me so the upgrade was well needed.

I'm assuming no since it's just a move to a new server and all the data will just be transferred.

Anyway, I'm glad we'll be getting a new server soon cause we really need one. Cloudflare honestly bugs me way too much. Having to wait 3 days to get back on PC is no problem, I have Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and other forums/social networks to occupy me till PC's back up. XD

3 days without PC???? I couldve stand it earlier, but now I'm too attached, don't break my heart! Well, I guess it is for the betterness of the community so I'll live.

Seriously, anything to get rid of Cloudflare can only be a plus. That site needs to die a quick (yet still very painful) death.

I just hope that everything (PM's/VM's, blog entries, etc.) make the transition flawlessly.

Three days without PC? The battle server? Hm. I guess could manage that. Looking forward to the move!

The servers seriously have been needing a upgrade since I've ever been here (about 3 and 1/2 years now) so I welcome this for the small price of a few days of unavailability.

But will there be name changes?

Actually, it's true that name changes are removed now but since we're switching servers, they are asking if its possible if name changes come back coz the new server *might* handle the name changing pressure.

Guys let's just ignore name changes for a while and revel in the awesomeness of this news.


Good bye Cloudflare, good bye lag, good bye random errors!~

Yes, let us bask in the glory that we have poisoned the tyranny of Cloudflare and is slowly but surely releasing its grasp over the PokeCommunity kingdom!

I hope PC will be back in a better state that the PC will move to a new server. I'm looking forward to this, and I appreciate it.
