In a recent forum post, Vyvyanne said she aims to have the remaining servers upgraded to the new server hardware before Thanksgiving.
“The new hardware is coming along great. We have all the equipment in place and built out and are now onto the arduous task of moving all of the software and data from the old hardware to new, making sure connections are correct, running QA tests etc. We should be having a load test on the new Bullroarer Beta world soon and will make announcements about it as soon as we have a date locked down. The aim is to have everything completed and live before the US Thanksgiving holiday.”
How long will the servers be down for the server upgrades?
“There is actually a lot of data that can be moved before hand by taking a snapshot of the past 8 years and moving that and then just doing a transfer of the difference when we are ready to do the actual switch over. Currently the estimates I am getting have the downtime being no longer than a normal update downtime of a few hours.” – source
In another post, she mentions free transfer plans after the free transfer period ends:
“…all accounts will receive 3 free transfer tokens and tokens will be required for transfers between the remaining worlds. Closing worlds will always be free and not require a token to transfer off of, forever.”
