*** DU will be down for an extended period of time starting Saturday 12/12 @ 8PM ET ***

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Announcements group).

Our long-awaited DU server upgrade is finally happening this weekend. Elad and the other admins have been working hard the last few months to prepare to move the site into a new, cutting-edge web server -- just in time for the 2016 presidential campaign.

We have a massive amount of data we need to move over to the new server, and a long list of other things to do, so you should expect the site to be offline for an extended period of time. Downtime will begin at 8PM ET (5PM PT), and will likely continue through Sunday and possibly into Monday.

We have made every effort to make the transition as smooth as we can. But once the site is back online we will undoubtedly encounter some unexpected glitches and bugs. Hopefully they will be minor (fingers crossed). We want to thank you in advance for your patience, and for your help identifying any problems.

Skinner, EarlG, and Elad

8PM ET is 5PM PT, so I'm assuming that's what you meant.

I appreciate the server upgrade, and all the hard work involved in the process.

94. AUTOMATED MESSAGE: Results of your Jury Service

On Fri Dec 11, 2015, 11:46 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

*** DU will be down for an extended period of time starting Saturday 12/12 @ 8PM ET ***
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10134856

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

What's with these guys preempting Sunday LOLCats? Completely inappropriate, rude and over-the-top!

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Dec 11, 2015, 11:46 PM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: My Sunday is going to feel like Monday without LOLCats.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Chill dude. Breath the catnip in deeply.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I agree this post is disruptive and rude. This is the ultimate transgression and the feline overlords will not approve.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: To the person that alerted. Get a life and get out of your mother's basement to play with your cat.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: What is wrong with this person? I would do more than just hide this thread if I could--I'd sharpen my claws to scratch him.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This will give me the long-awaited opportunity to get the cat fur out of my keyboard.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I'm going to use this break to buy some Windex and clean the paw prints from my touch-screen monitor.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.



I hope that the swap out for the new server goes well and I'm looking forward to the improved functionality at DU. Kudos to our administrators!
