    Heads up! We're migrating our entire site infrastructure to its new home on Monday, March 23rd from 5-9am PT. During this window the site won't be accessible until the process is complete.

    Updates to follow...

    Migration is complete. Switching DNS to the new servers.

    If you experience any issues...please post them in this thread.

    Thanks your patience.

    I'm noticing some avatars don't display post-migration. Is there something the members need to do (re-upload) or will it be 'self-correcting' during propagation? Thanks.

    Users shouldn't need to do anything other than maybe clearing their local cache.

    I'd like to point out a potential problem. In the last 24 hours I have rated and reviewed three new beers. Two of which are from breweries that are new to me, including a state that I had never had a beer from. So far neither my states, breweries, nor my karma stats have updated.

    I'm guessing it might be due to the higher than normal volume of people on the site, but I thought I'd let you know Todd.

    This update is handled by a cron job. Those were setup later in the day in the new environment, but I'll continue to monitor.

    Yeah I’ve also reviewed 2 new beers over the past day and haven’t seen any increase in karma

    Good evening Todd. Not trying to bust your chops playboy. It's your world, I'm just using the freeways. But to update you from this end, since you made the switch 3/23~

    6 New beers rated and reviewed.
    2 New states checked off the list.
    3 New breweries checked.
    2 New beers added to brewery profiles.

    Among dozens of new posts in forums and hundreds of more likes, NOTHING has updated. I'm beginning think your new software does indeed have issues.

    Again NOT busting your chops but dude....

    Aside from the Karma issue, the new server update is great @Todd . The site latency and loading time is a least 2-3 times faster than it was before!

    To be fair man, the karma thing is rather superfluous. There are some glaring flaws though and pointing them out is the point of this thread right?

    Correct, getting the site operating exactly as it was before should be the point. I just wanted to point out some positive notes I noticed.

    Other than having to clear my cache to see the avatar pics correctly the transition has been seamless for me. What flaws are you seeing?

    As listed above none of my beers added, breweries and states are updating. Todd had eluded that the updates to those have been set to certain time intervals (24 hours) is what I thought. Three days later none of those are updating.
