Server maintenance and system downtime August 2014

Dear friends, colleagues, and LINGUIST List subscribers,

the LINGUIST List website will be switched off for an hour to two at least once, maybe even twice, between the 5th and 7th of August 2014. The mailing list will not be affected by this, neither will the various blog sites and other information services (e.g. our social media pages or the RSS feed).

During the down-time we will migrate most of the pages to a new service. We would appreciate, if you let us know of any problems with the website after the 7th of August 2014. The site has been migrated to a new server platform, new operating systems, and a completely new software environment. The services of The LINGUIST List will not only be much more reliable and responsive after the switch, they will also be extended with new features during the next weeks. We hope that the new technological environment will significantly improve the user experience with the LINGUIST List pages and services.

There might be issues with existing applications and function that we missed during our quality control procedures. We might oversee some bugs and problems with new functions in the next weeks. Please help us correcting any issues or problems. Let us know of any errors by mailing to linguist or error, or the moderators directly at linguistlist.org. Your help, suggestions, ideas, and comments are always welcome!

Thanks for your understanding and support!

Malgosia and Damir
