UPDATE: Migration is over. 11:50 AM.
UPDATE: We have started the migration at 10:50 AM.

-------
We will be performing a server upgrade today between 10 AM - 2 PM UTC/GMT today. The upgrades include:

- OS from Windows 2008 R2 to Windows 2012
- DB from MSSQL 2008 to MSSQL 2012
- All new hardware

The hosting facility is not able to point the IP address to the new server; sadly the IP addresses of our services will change as well. As these (DNS records) changes may take few minutes to many hours to propagate through the WWW; some of the users might end up looking at old host. We will be modifying DB pointers to handle such cases.

The downtime should not exceed for more than an hour while we move the database(s). Website tickr will inform about the exact timings.

Please do not attempt CrowdFlower tasks during the downtime.

Thanks,
Team EP
