Dark Millennia's move to the new server is complete! Minor changes (like forum icons and images) still need to be made, but for the most part, things should be back to normal. Thanks for your patience while the move took place!
August 19, 2007
Dark Millennia changed hosting services to (hopefully) increase functionality. The site might experience some quirks while the server is configured. Known issues: the Forum is closed while the database is reloaded-- the move will upgrade the Forum to version 3.6.8.; the navigation links are not displaying properly; and the "Thought for the Day" is not displaying properly. The cause of these issues is known, but it takes time to configure the server so that they work properly. Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

JULY 17, 2002
Dark Millennia is reborn after suffering a viscious attack by cyber-terrorism (read about it here)! During the lull created by the resulting downtime, we redesigned the site a bit, adding a side bar navigation panel and an expanded top and bottom navigation bar. Unfortunately, our forum database was completely destroyed, so members will need to re-apply for membership. We apologize for any inconvenience this tragedy has caused our loyal following, but we are confident that Dark Millennia will rise from the ashes and will be better than it was before the attack! We remain committed to bringing you the unique 40K web experience that is Dark Millennia! Enjoy!
