If you're going to do extended chats while out-of-character, it would still be preferable to keep it in an appropriate @chat channel, or find an <OOC> room.
But, for short messages, like planning a scene, +OOC is the way to go.

In addition, I will be less involved than I have been. The reason for the server move was conflict at my home, where the old server had been, and this conflict has reached far enough that I'm also going to be without an internet connection for some time - at least a month, possibly even two or three.
I have an Android with Verizon, unlimited data, but its connection is slower and less reliable. Much of the responsibility has been passed to Fimbulwinter, and you can reach any and all team members at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for everything, and I'll see you around Equestria.

The new address for the live server (the one you've all been playing on) will be tangent.dune.net port 8789
Tomorrow at about 1145 AM Pacific, the game database will be saved and transfered, and hopefully the transfer will be complete by noon. Notice will be given in-game, and the old server will be left up for a few hours with notice of the move.
Thank you all for your patience through this.

This will change how you log in.
As soon as I know the new URL and port number, I will let you know in advance. The switch itself is still scheduled for noon Pacific on Friday.
Hopefully, this will all go over without a problem.

We are suffering unanticipated server downtime.
I hope to be able to remotely troubleshoot the problem, but if I am unable to fix it, it will be up to six or eight hours until I can have immediate physical access to the server.
I am also looking into other, more-reliable hosting options.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and my apologies for the inconvenience.

If you're having specific in-game troubles, you can @mail or @page a listed Wizard. There's a signpost in Ponyville Town Square (look Wizard Directory) if you don't know who to contact.
Apologies for any confusion.

Technically, they were assigned. The River's Edge Inn - Tavern is an OOC and Age Restricted room, while the Common Room is all-ages OOC.
If you're having any trouble getting into the Tavern (and you're 18+) then send an e-mail with your character name & birthday and we'll get that sorted out ASAP.

So, I'm looking to gather opinions on what to do with the current beta server while the development server is shifted to the foreground of the development process.
My two thoughts are as follows: 1) Leave it as is. 2) Strike it down significantly & reduce it to something more like a "talker" - A login room leading to an IC room, an OOC room, and maybe one of each for age-restricted chat.
Poll on the sidebar, specific thoughts below.

There's not a whole lot to be announced, except that this here blog exists and that I really didn't want it to be sitting here with a blank stare on its face until there was newsworthy news.
