Busy server

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

The rush of connections is always very large in the first hour of a voting round. If you are unable to connect to the site to vote, or the site is responding too slowly for you, please try coming back later in the day. Polls are open for 24 hours, and voting at the end of the day is exactly the same as voting at the start of the day; we will still count it.

Thanks to everyone for making this postseason successful with a very large voter turnout and new records set with this past semifinal round. The staff would also like to thank Kyouko and thx_to_staff for their donations this week. Our server is paid for the 2012 season, and we have begun early collection for 2013.

Server moves

Friday, October 21st, 2011

This news post is made on the new server. On the old server I left a notice saying we’d be switching servers. This has happened. Most users should have gone through DNS updates by now to see the new site. If you’re still on the old site, there would be notices on the main page indicating such.

We’re working hard to make sure things are in top shape for the start of the Postseason. Thanks for being a part of ISML.

Possible brief downtime

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

I received this email from our hosting providers (excerpt; server name removed for privacy):

As you know, we have recently had some problems with the hardware and operating system on [server_name]. This has regrettably resulted in multiple outages that have frustrated many of you as well as our support team. We offer our apologies again for these issues.

As a result, this Saturday, 12/26, we will be replacing most of the hardware in this server. We are confident this will put an end to the instability we have been experiencing and will provide an excellent hosting platform for the forseeable future. Due to the nature of this maintenance we expect there to be a 2 hour window where services will be unavaliable.

So if we’re gone for a little bit today, don’t worry~
