T-Minus 42 Minutes

At 10pm Pacific time (UTC/GMT -8) we will be disabling all media uploads on www.livejournal.com and pics.livejournal.com. This means that you will be unable to add any additional userpics, make voice posts, or upload images to your ScrapBook. You will also be unable to make purchases from the Gift Shop or manage Recurring Billing this evening. Soon after, some journals will be placed in read-only mode as we prepare to switch traffic from Seattle to San Francisco.

We will be updating http://status.livejournal.org with the latest information about the move and downtime this evening. You can also follow the move "play by play" in our move blog at http://ljmove.blogs.com.

Read-Only Mode and Site Access

Access to ScrapBook (http://pics.livejournal.com) is currently disabled as we are progressing through the move. LiveJournal.com will follow shortly. Some journals have now been placed in read-only mode as we prepare to switch traffic from Seattle to San Francisco. Further updates will be posted to status at http://status.livejournal.org when LiveJournal is taken offline for a short period of time.
