Dear Colleagues and Qwriting Users,

On Tuesday, January 15th, 2013, we will be bringing the Qwriting server
down for a maintenance and upgrade session that will take approximately 48
hours to complete (Thursday, January 17, 2013).  *So, you will not be able
to access Qwriting from Tuesday morning to Thursday morning*.  We are very
sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.

The key changes that we will implement are:

   1. Migrating all the Qwriting blogs to a new server hosted at Queens
   College and
   2. Switching the site address from *qwriting.org to *qwriting.qc.cuny.edu.
    To clarify, from Thursday morning on, if your blog URL looked like "
   mysitename.qwriting.org" it will now look like "

All of your posts, pages and themes should remain the same.  Further,
anyone who tries to get to your site at mysitename.qwriting.org will be
redirected to mysitename.qwriting.qc.cuny.edu without having to do
anything.  This means that if you posted your site URL in an email or on a
website, etc., you *will not *need to change it immediately.  That can be
done at your leisure.

Once Qwriting becomes available again, if you have any issues with your
blog(s), please send us an email at qwritinghelp at gmail.com with your site
URL and a detailed description of the issue and we will try to get back to
you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience!
