Site is now online, we will continue monitoring and improving performance & fixing bugs in the meantime.
Due to some issues found we are extending maintenance by another 30 minutes to fix these issues.
Data migration has finished and the team is working on verifying if everything works as intended and that there are no missing fictions, chapters, users or other things.
Due to the unexpected slowness of the process, the maintenance is currently expected to take 30 minutes longer than the original estimate.
The previously specified date on this page has been wrong due to timezone issues. Apologies about any confustion it could have caused.
We will be migrating Royal Road to another service provider. This should address some issues we’ve seen in the past (such as the random BadRequest errors) and allow us to roll out updates somewhat easier and more streamlined.Some degradation in performance may be seen after migration as we need to re-optimise several systems due to a change in database software we will be using, but these should go away as we get around to re-tailoring the queries for performance on the new platform, though this should not be significant as the new servers will have significantly faster hardware available to them.
