PlayStation.com Forums Down
The North American PlayStation.com forums and website have gone down for approximately 12 hours (10pm Pacific/1am Eastern to 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern) for some serious renovations. But what can we expect?
The official statement is as follows:
...we're adding a new skin across our forums. No hints. You'll have to wait and see what it is. Second, we'll be working on the backend of our forum to prepare for a plethora of new community features coming in 2010. The new site heavily utilizes style sheets to reduce page size and increase download speed.
Translation: this is probably one of the biggest forum overhauls since the Forums first moved to Lithium in 2001. The forums will look considerably different, but still be Lithium-powered, so a lot of the stuff you're used to will still be there.
I only know some of whats happening to the forums (and even then I'm very limited to what can be said). I don't know anything about the main website or PSN.
