tl;dr - new server, some breakage but hopefully not much, say if you spot anything.

We have a new server which we are in the process of moving things to - this should mean that Shartak is a little faster but it's also an opportunity to upgrade some of the other software in use.

The wiki has already been successfully moved and upgraded to the latest Mediawiki - if you spot anything broken, please say something!

The forum (as it is now) will not run on the new server due to a much more recent version of PHP not supporting some of the functions used in this very old version of the forum software. There's a newer version that is still supported but the upgrade path may or may not work. It could be easier to just start again from scratch and have a static archive of the old content. Some more investigation is required.

The game seems to transfer successfully now that I've ironed out some problems - some people noticed the downtime the other day, there's going to be another outage in the coming weeks when I make a second attempt to move it which will hopefully be successful. There will be a forward from the old IP for a while so you shouldn't experience too much downtime - again if you spot any issues, please let us know!

Don't forget - there are some of us hanging out on Discord https://discord.gg/Nb25Nth (invite code Nb25Nth if you're using the client). This is the best way to get in touch, or alternatively the usual email address or feedback forms still work.

www.shartak.com should now be pointing to the new server - it seems to be working fine but keep an eye out for anything that doesn't look quite right.

Both Underworld and Deadzone aren't recording kills.
