Gamesquad will be moved to a new server 1PM - 2PM Monday afternoon, US central time, the 28th. There should not be an interruption in access but don't be surprised if it does occur.

The change occurred today, just minutes ago. If you have problems, doing a refresh may help.

The migration to a new server is complete according to the server host company.

Seems fine to me. New IP but the usual level of spam to hunt and kill.

But I got my best, most vicious spam hunter and spam killer on the spam killing job! ;)
Given how much he used to report it, I always thought just making him a mod and allowing him to kill was a better option. It is one of the reasons I thought he would be a good mod, You're welcome. ;) -- jim

Early on as a mod, I looked at the post times for the Indian/Pakistani spammers. Most seemed to be roughly in the 1pm-6pm local time slot. That suggested to me that most were kids/teens using internet cafes, libraries or school/college PCs rather than their own home machines. Covid dramatically slashed the amount of spam, from a dozen or two per day to 1-3 per day, though that since has crept up to 4-6 occasionally. That seems to fit with my earlier guess as such places would be closed or severely restricted. Their commonly awkward English phrasing would match that spammer model as well.

Oh, I almost forgot, GS's time is still about 6.5 hours out.
