While we back up and restore the database, we will have to put the site into ‘read-only’ mode, and turn off the Xbox scanners.
The site will still be online, but it will be placed in ‘read-only’ mode to avoid any data loss while we carry out the move.
- Scanners will be turned off — your achievements and Gamerscore won’t be updated during the move
- No posting of solutions
- No commenting on Friend Feeds
- No posting in the forums or on news items
- No voting on solutions
- No rating of games
- No setting of completion estimates
- No gamer goal creation
- No status updates
The work is due to start at 9.15am UTC, and we expect that everything should be back up and running by around midday.
Note: When the scanners are running again, they will collect any achievements you won during the downtime… there’s no need to stop gaming!
Thank you for your patience during this time.
