Scheduled Maintenance and Downtime
DoA will be 99% closed from November 1st to November 7th. During this time, you will be able to access your PMs, as well as the Rules and Announcements subforums. Additionally, we will open a temporary "chat" subforum so that people can continue to talk while we work on the forum.
We will also have several periods of complete downtime for technical maintenance, which will be announced as needed.
As a note to advertisers, your ad term will be extended by one week to make up for this downtime!
Over the next few months, the forum staff will be trading off taking some well-earned vacation. During this time, you may see some familiar faces without their wings! Please be respectful of the fact that these moderators aren't on duty unless their names are green.
As happens every few years, the moderators will be evaluating the forum's mission statement, subforum structure, rules, and staffing. During this time, you may be asked as members to answer survey questions or submit ideas about how you think the forum could be made better. Your opinions are important, so we hope that you will join us in our ongoing adventures in forum improvement.
Also, please remember that the Suggestion Box
is always open!
