I need you all to read this.

tl;dr summary: I'm going with this. Now, to copy what's in my own admin panel, and why this is relevant to you:

As you may have read .. we are at the beginning of a long process of upgrading our entire shared hosting infrastructure to new servers. Servers that are more powerful, more power-efficient, and more isolated from each other (for better stability)!

It sounds pretty great, no?

Well, it is.. except that the transition is going to be long and will doubtlessly result in various problems along the way.

Which is why we're looking for volunteers to get moved first!

If you're interested in having this account moved to the system sooner please read what happens when you click the button below:

* You will be added to a wait list. There is no pre-set time you will be moved... it could happen immediately or after a year!
* This account will be upgraded to unlimited disk and bandwidth immediately and permanently... subject to our unlimited policy!
* There will likely be problems on your account because of the move (the new servers also run a newer version of linux). Please be prepared to be friendly even if something breaks!

Before clicking the button below, please make sure:

* Everybody on your account is using their full email address (not m######) only to check and send email with their mail client.
* Everybody is only ftping/sshing to your domain, and not a server name directly.
* Nobody on your account is using .procmail or .forward files.
* You don't have /home/.SOMETHING/username anywhere in your files at all... you should change it to just: /home/username

So.. still want to be an early-mover?

tl;dr summary of THAT: Shit could break temporarily.

Long story short; any objections? Delia? Cris? You have 24 hours.

late reply but

I can access my ftp, but two things I just uploaded aren't showing up. I take it that means shit's started to break for the time being...?

Reupload them. They were having problems with the new server today.

Tried that, still didn't work.

Sara, are you still having this issue?

Yes, and now I can't even connect cause my login's apparently invalid.
