Default Upcoming Server Upgrade - Downtime Expected

VGMdb will be down for a few hours on March 7th, starting approximately around 10:00PM Pacific Time (GMT -8:00), in order to make an upgrade to our server. This upgrade will increase the amount of disk space available and allow for continued growth of the database. At this point we are close to maxing out our space but this upgrade will nearly double it. We like the sound of that, don't you? :3

As always, we appreciate your support in helping VGMdb grow into the fantastic resource it is today.

Japanese translation: (Thanks Cedille)

VGMdbは、3月8日の午後15時前後から数時間ほど、サーバーチェンジのためにメンテナンスに入る予定 です。データベースの拡大に伴い、今回の変更でサーバーのディスク容量を増加いたします(現在、ほぼ限界容 量まで来ているところですが、今回で約2倍となります)。

VGMdbのここまでの成長は、皆様の日頃のご愛顧の賜物と感謝しております。

So what's taking up so much space? I thought the scans weren't a big issue.

63,000 scans do take up a lot of space. We probably ought to do an accounting for.

Very cool idea to translate the message for our Japanese readers. Thanks, Cedille.

Not many sites have such high quality scans. It's good to know we will be able to continue uploading them. I hope it's not burning your pocket too much though.
