|Site Upgrades & Submissions extended for "News in Pictures, January 13 - 19"|
After a week of horrible connection issues with the current hosting company (though you may not have noticing them depending on your geo-location and ISP), this weekend we have moved to a new hosting company, and upgraded the server in the process. The site should be fast accessible from any parts of the world now.
Between porting the database (which takes time due to massive amount of data to be ported between two servers) and udgrades (some parts of the site like "submissions" needed to be completely rewritten because they no longer worked on the new platform) we've lost about 4 hours worth of data (votes, comments, and submissions) this Sunday.
To at least compensate for submissions issues, we have extended the submission time for "News in Pictures, January 13 - 19" by 12 hours.
The issues that still need to be fixed as of the time of this writing are:
1) Uploads to personal mail folders don't work
2) Stats graph bars don't work.
These two will be fixed on Monday.
