    Server will be down this weekend (NZ time) as I'm taking the server to a LAN.

    Yeah I screwed up the thread title and I can't change it :(

    Just remember that the one with 15 players in the title is actually the 4th game.

    From oob...

    The connection is down, so the server is down till further notice, this will probably be about 9-10 hours from now.

    I'll reload from the most recent save on both.

    What are y'all names inside the game?? I hate it when everyone has a differentname in the game vs the forum. AND I dont have control over CivStats, while subbing in for CH....

    Can CH be kicked out of CivStats? Or can anyone/someone please make a list of names inside and outside the game so I can conduct a little diplo??

    CivStats is down tho !

    I'll PM you a list of email addresses for people in the game (hopefully this is ok by everyone).

    Thanks Oob,

    @everyone else in the game, I went over both the 3rd and 4th games "diplomatic situation" and I should be up to speed.... In taking over there may be some miscommunication as handover was short and sweet (i.e. no access to CivStats)
    If anyone feels I need to know something or wants to make sure... Or communicate with me for any reason if only to say Hi or something, PM me... I will also -try to- send a PM to everyone with my Email...

    I'll take a look when I get home, that'll be about 4 hours from now. Anyone else getting this problem? The Civstats page still appears to be up.

    I'm moving flat on sunday (NZ time), so I'll be taking the servers down on saturday or sunday depending on how the turn falls (I prefer to shut them down shortly after the start of a new turn). They shouldn't be down too long.

    Well my connection has been sucking for the last few hours, so just to save us all some headaches I'm taking it down till tomorrow, hopefully it will be alright by then.

    Connection seems stable now (since I've gotten home from work at least), so I've brought the servers back up.

    It looks as though someones connection hung onto my other game after they left (happens from time to time) and was taking up a lot of the upload. I've restarted that server now so it should be fine.

    If anyone can think of a solution to this problem (connections hanging for a long time afterwards) let me know, as it's the bane of pitboss hosts everywhere.
