The Classical-Crossover.co.uk website will be going offline for renovations and streamlining on the 20th December.
So this means the 2012 artist voting will officially end on the 20th December when the website goes offline. Those stats will then be recorded and included in the 2011 Annual Award information when we launch the new website.
Although we have explained this before here is a brief list of the changes being implemented during this streamlining process:
Article Voting will be removed
Article Comments will be removed
All Member accounts will be deleted
The User Trophy leaderboard will be upgraded and made more relevant to all artists.
The CC Compilation CD information will no longer be held on a seperate website.
The general layout will be altered to make the whole site nicer and easier to navigate.
The frontpage will have more information and features added to it to make it easier for people to see new content, features, blog posts and competitions as they are added to the website.
Most other things will remain the same, and the site will remain free for all relying on generous donations in the form of User Trophy orders.
A more complete list of the updates included will be available on the developer diary after the changeover is complete.
These forums will remain up and running throughout the changeover process.
As you may have noticed the server transfer has already begun. Part of the transfer involves transferring the Domain name, domain name propogation can take up to 72 hours.
We are now wiping and shutting down the old server while the domain propogates. As our servers are uk based most uk residents will not see any change, just the offline message during the time. However other people may get a no website to display error once the wipe and shut down has completed.
It will only be temporary and by the time the website is ready to launch the domain name should have fully propogated for everypone world wide.
Will be posting again once the website is back online.
