GD Upcoming Forum Maintenance
« on: 03 June 2019, 21:08:13 »
"Heads up to everybody: our forum will be undergoing an extensive maintenance in the near future (we'll announce an exact date once we have everything in order on the back-end but expect it in the coming days!).

During this maintenance, the forum will be unavailable. The maintenance may extend over several days, so be aware if you have any social plans on the forum.

Old Accounts
While the forum is shut down, we will be doing some major clean-up as well as updates. During this clean-up, we will be deactivating user accounts that have not been active on the forum in the last 2 years. If retaining your existing account is important to you, and you have not signed into the forum in a very long time, we suggest you take a moment to sign in over the coming days.

Old Threads
In addition, we will be selectively purging certain sections of the forum of threads older than the release of Grim Dawn (02/25/16). If you wish to retain anything older than that, make your backups now!

Development sections will not be affected by this, so history of Grim Dawn will be retained. However, feedback posts from 5 years ago are probably a bit outdated now, among other things.

Password Reset
Lastly, there will be an enforced password reset. When the forum returns online, you will be required to set a new password. Due to this, make sure that the email address you have associated with your account is one you can actually access and not some ancient aol account or something.

The Future
What will emerge on the other end of this extended maintenance? Hopefully something awesome for everybody all around. Stay tuned!"

Forum will be going down later today, 5th June.

"I am happy to report that work on the back-end is progressing smoothly and we are ready to proceed with the next step.

As such, the Forum will be undergoing its extended maintenance starting tomorrow (06/05/19 around 1-3pm EDT).

Once the forum is in maintenance mode, you will be unable to make new posts or create an account. We expect this maintenance to take at least 48 hours.

To keep you going during these dire times, you can stop by the other Grim Dawn communities around the internets:

    Discord
    Steam Forum
    Reddit


For those in Europe 5pm-7pm GMT/6pm-8pm BST/7pm-9pm CEST"

If you need to back up any info on the forum do it now!
