The migration to a new datacenter is complete.
The "Groucho" server migration didn't start at 4:00 UTC as promised but
at about 5:30 UTC instead. Oh well. It caused about 30 to 45 mins of downtime to
Cats Paw Island and other sites, but all should be back online now.

We are changing the Chatlands™ registration
Some people have been using disposable email in order to "ban hop"
on Chatlands™. There's also "Hotmail" and other Microsoft email servers
what they consider spam, rather than putting it into a
"spam" or "junk" folder. This means that the user has no
that they received that email. This makes it impossible to
validate your Chatlands™ account. For these and other reasons, we have
decided to require that when registering for a new account
the following email domains will be accepted.
aol.com, gmail.com, icloud.com, me.com and yahoo.com (including yahoo's
We will update and expand this list from time to time. If you don't already
have an account with one of these email services, you will need to create
one first (it's free) before you create your Chatlands™ account.
Note: This only applies to new accounts.
If you registered with some
other email address, you can keep using that one. We apologize for this
inconvenience, but we feel that this will help us to provide a more pleasant
experience for all users on Chatlands™. Thank you for your understanding.
If you want to help Chatlands™ grow, please
tell your friends!
- Thanks! -
