    EA-Land will go offline.
    8:45 AM PST
    Database Admins to back up database
    9:15 AM PST
    Start migration of database to East coast
    12:30 PM PST
    Database Admins finish copy and EA-Land team validates.
    1:30 PM PST
    Start up EA-Land internally and EA-Land team will run a few tests.
    2:00 PM PST
    Open EA-Land back to players
    This is the plan and if all goes well we expect to be running again by 2:00 PM PST. As we did today we will you updated with general status every few hours.

    *just hitting reply*
    yes i am going to whine,
    why does TC3 have to go down as well? how come you cant work on 1 city without affecting the other?,and is TC3 going to be down for as long as EA Land? should we expect this to be a "norm" from here on out?
    i am asking these questions to a DEV not one of us "wanna-be" dev's,,lol

    They posted that it was just going to be a quick 15-30 minute maintenance, and yes it was necessary to do it right then.

    No cities are being merged today.

    They are moving EALand onto the East Coast servers so that they can run the east coast city merges (which I would assume will start later in the week)

    Now THAT'S what I'm talking about... giving praise where praise is due.... pat them on the back (which is not kissing butt by the way) convinces the team to move faster, and think harder for new ideas for your enjoyment... keep up the great work DEVs and thanks for the positive post

    An interesting side note...during todays migragion I lost my front walk. I still have a sidewalk but not in the front. Lee says I might have a rare lot now! W00t! Still it would be nice if they would take the street too so I can have my 3rd side of water that I paid for. [​IMG]
