Wave Site shutdown - 20-01-08 -- COMPLETED

Hi all,

We will be taking the site down this evening (20-01-08) to implement the first phase of our forum reshuffle.

We are adding a new area specifically for traders and moving some existing lounges into the sub-forum format to make more room, it will look much like the technical assistance section, which will also avoid us having a very large forum home page.

I am sure that the majority will welcome the changes, however these changes are required to allow us to grow new and existing sections (Example: Blue & Me lounge - Coming soon)

The Second phase will concentrate on splitting model lounges but that is a few weeks off yet!

Regards,

AO

Re: Site closing tonight for a few hours - Cannot be avoided.

Closing approx 8PM and will return online asap.

Unfortunatley it will be for a few hours. Please note there may be a security lock out in place at some time too. (Little pop up box requesting usernames & passwords, your passwords will not get you in so dont waste your time )

Re: Site closing tonight for a few hours - Cannot be avoided.

Hi all,

If you notice any errors relating to the recent changes, please forgive us & report them here for now and we will investigate. (8 hours to make the changes is enough for now )

Regards,

AO

Re: Site closing tonight for a few hours - Cannot be avoided.

What a surprise when I logged in this morning. I think it will take a little while to get used to where all the lounges are, but it's just coz it's something new.

Yeah, I haven't been on for a few days, and had a bit of a shock, but I think it looks good
