Tonight we will be getting a big facelift! I will be taking TFO down sometime around 11pm PDT and we will return ASAP after that with a fresh new look and a blazing fast new server.
Features like search and mobile responsiveness will be added in the process. This is a huge undertaking and any number of things can go wrong but I pulled an all-nighter last night doing the final test run and it looks like all systems are GO!
I'm really excited about this upgrade and soon you all will see why. Thank you all for your support and patience! A whole lot of improvements await us on the other side!

Wish me luck!

What will be replacing the app? Besides its "issues" it is really easy to use, good layout, very transparent, nice overall interface. Hope whatever the replacement is, it will be as pleasant to use.

WHAT?! Don't say that! :shy: hehe

But seriously, wouldn't that be awful if all the TFO archives were wiped and was no more?? Can't happen though.. I don't think...... right?? ;)

We have backups to prevent catastrophe. And backups for those backups! :) ;)

CHANGE OF PLANS: Looks like the migration will happen possibly TOMORROW night. There's a couple more issues I need to iron out before we go for the final push.
Thanks for your guys' patience. I'll keep this thread updated
