Today the Demotix tech team were trying to move the entire Demotix site - and all of the huge archive of your images, comments, profiles and discussions - from our two servers that we've been using for years to eight shiny new ones in "the cloud".

Unfortunately, it looks like the cloud doesn't have a silver lining for us just now; despite the best efforts of our long-suffering tech team (they've been staring at screens, pounding their keyboards and guzzling energy drinks for well over 12 hours trying to make this work) we haven't been able to get the site working properly on the new servers.

We will be making the move happen soon, but for now we're going to be back to normal service very soon, and certainly by tomorrow morning.

We know today has been annoying and frustrating - a lot of you have been trying to upload stories or talk to your Demotix colleagues while we've been working. Sorry that we've had to ask so many of you for just a bit more patience.

In the end it will all be worth it when we bring you a much faster, more capable site - it's just going to take a bit longer than we'd hoped.
