    It looks like traffic was so high on Wednesday during the Villanova game that we actually had some people unable to access the site. This is a great thing and it means it's time to upgrade to prevent this from happening again. The upgrade is scheduled for 12:45 am and should only last an hour or two, so it will not impact the vast majority of you. The forums should remain viewable for almost the entire time but any posts made during the upgrade are at risk of being lost. I apologize for any issues this causes.

    Update: These have been completed. The new server is online.

    Jared,

    As someone new to this site (but I have been a fan since the Collier days and actually attended my first game in 1988), I just want to say thanks for running this site and all the thankless work you put in. Keep it up!

    Ditto. Nice job Jared. Been going to Butler games since the '70s.

    Thanks, I appreciate it. It's a lot of work at times, and I'm not always able to stay on top of it, but it's worth it.

    Ok, I think we should be done with all of the errors that originated yesterday. I know some have been getting more this evening. If anyone gets these again please let me know. Hopefully this headache is over though.

    I just learned that the IP I've been assigned is flagged by Microsoft and for spam and they reject all emails. So if anyone has a Microsoft email account (ex: hotmail, outlook) and has their settings to send them email notifications they probably aren't getting those. I'll have to handle this later tonight.

    This should be fixed now.

    Not a big deal, but might be related. Just got a Tapatalk email and it was filled with some other forum's messages. Nothing related to butler. Maybe some wires got crossed.

    That's probably a Tapatalk issue. If you forward me the email I can send it on to their support.
