Update 19:22BST 20/6/2013 - Due to the downtime of the Neocron servers we have decided to bring forward the downtime while it's quiet. Updates at the end of this post.
On Saturday 22nd June to Sunday 23rd June, we are undertaking a major upgrade to the THN. The forums are being migrated to a new more up-to-date forum software. This upgrade will affect access to the Rares DB.
During the upgrades, the THN forums and the Rares DB will not be available. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
The Item DB, Wiki and Stats DB will be available as normal during this planned downtime.
The work is expected to start at 10:00BST and is expected to last most of the weekend.
Any updates will be posted here in this post, and also on Twitter.
