Hi everyone,

Due to a small delay in getting our new server, we have put the Nations Forever Exchange site in read only mode. (http://tmnforever.tm-exchange.com)
You can read the front page news for more information.

The United site will follow unless we get our new server online.

Thnx for your patience.

Kind regards,

Fleppie

For the read only state, only Rix can do that for United side as he is the owner of the United codebase. Hopefully the server won't be too much longer and it then read-only wont matter.

Hi All,

At this moment our server is out of service.
All TMX sites will be unavailable until our new server is online.

We're sorry for the delay, and hope we'll get it back online soon.

Regads,

Fleppie

We were hopeful of getting the new server today. Since we were told it was taking time because they do not have the server we wanted on their site and they have had to ship one in from another datacenter.

But that was days ago, so unless the server is being shipped in from Brazil ? :ftw:

Remember, whenever the site does come back, there is every chance it will go down again while we do some configurations and optimisations. We will post news when all of that is complete.

Is there any chance the lost days will be added to the tracks?

Clearification xD: When you f.e. uploaded a track 2 days before the downtime, your chance to make it to the BoW will be kinda ruined by the downtime of tmx. Is there any chance the remaining time (so five days in this example) will be added to the day tmx will be up again. So you still have 5 days to make it to the BoW...?

Hm I don't think this should be a big problem because they always did it the way you describe when tmx was down...
Otherwise it would be a bit sad (because I also uploaded a track ;) )
