The Site will be undergoing Database Optimizations on the 15th of August 2012. This may cause a slight slowdown on page load times. Work will continue until around 3:30 EST.
Any Further information regarding possible site work will be posted as an update to this post, or posted on another similar post.
Update: The Site is back online and working properly. We discovered a bug in the server code which prevents the server from fully utilizing all of the system resources available. As a result the servers will be undergoing further maintenance on August 21st, 2012; starting at midnight EST. The updates will take around 5 hours to complete. A new post, and Announcement will be put up the day before, to warn everyone of the upcoming update.
