    After many years, it is once again time for RHP to move home, and as a result, there will be an outage as all your games transfer over the internet from one home to another.

    In the past this has taken up to 24 hours, but we will be making every effort to minimise this, and hope that those who check in once a day will not even notice. Regardless, we will be compensating timebanks for those waiting to move as the outage begins, and in addition, suspending timeouts for a short period afterwards.

    No date has been fixed for this, but towards the end of this week is likely. A date will be announced soon, but notice will be short.

    Keep an eye on the site announcements forum, and during the outage, Facebook or, for more granular updates, Twitter.

    Russ, does this mean the site will have a new look?

    No, this is just a backend change, so no UI differences.

    If you are playing in any of the following games, you will not be able to submit a move until tomorrow once the migration is complete. (Submitted moves will remain unregistered). Introducing this limitation will permit us to end the upcoming outage sooner that would otherwise be possible.
