Server Upgrade
Currently in the process of moving the site over from cheap shared hosting to an $80/month VPS. This will ensure that the site (or parts of the site) will not go down during traffic spikes, as happened earlier today.

There shouldn't be any downtime due to the server move but I can't guarantee that there won't be any in the next 48 hours. In addition, the comic gallery will unfortunately have to remain closed for the next 48 hours until the transition to the new server is fully complete.

Now, time for the good news...the RP contest ends tomorrow! Two lucky people will win $10 RP each.

Sorry again for the inconvenience caused by the downtime earlier.

RE: Server Upgrade
We should make you a statue, really



Lock in your characters and let me explain
The tale of a man who's caused so much pain
Demacia is the place he was raised
If you listen to me you'll be quite amazed
To learn why he's the king of the Rift
The enemy, they're all scared stiff
The heart of a team on mid lane pushes
The reason your foes stay out of the bushes.
The heat of a battle, Garen appears
Down the top lane runs a river of tears
A beacon of light, watch his enemies run
On his back eighteen cloaks of the sun
The lane seems clear but it's hard to say
Is he in the bushes, is he MIA?
It's team fight time, he'll lead the charge
His scarf is long his sword is large.

RE: Server Upgrade
Will the ads and whatnot keep the overhead down? I'd hate to see you upgrade the server and then have to dish out cash from your own pocket.

Should be fine, although I'm a bit worried about the impact of the site downtime yesterday. Traffic is way down and the site is no longer on the first page of Google when you search "League of Legends comics".

I expect the site to rebound within the next week or so, however.

RE: Server Upgrade
Well the traffic might've just been the prize whores for the raffle so I wouldn't be too worried about that. Don't forget that one of the Riot staff actually linked a lot of people to use the other day because of the extended downtime so that might of been another source of the sudden traffic.

Though hopefully we'll come back as top dog for LoL comics as I haven't heard of anywhere else that has such a collection.
