<b>The Wiki Has Moved to a New Host</b> - [http://ac.wikkii.net Link]
 
<br>Over the years we have moved hosting of the wiki a couple of times, each time because we had outgrown our host's ability to handle our usage. This time our move was for quite different reasons and had to do with Wikia's decision to seriously overhaul their default skin (which controls how the wiki is laid out and its appearance). Wikia also decided to make the skin mandatory and the major contributors to the wiki decided that the changes were fundamentally incompatible with the nature of our particular wiki. Wikia has always been a gracious and helpful host and we wish them well in the new direction they have decided to take their site, and regret that we cannot accompany them.
 
 
Please come visit us at our new home at [http://ac.wikkii.net http://ac.wikkii.net] where you will find the most up-to-date and helpful information about Asheron's Call you can find anywhere on the web.

Wikia will replace Monaco with a new default skin this fall. - Link
Wikia has decided to move to a new custom skin this fall that will replace Monaco as the default skin for most Wikia wikis. Monaco will be supported for a time but will eventually be phased out completely. Monobook (which many ACCW readers use) will continue to be supported however there is no promise that it too will not be removed at some point. While the new skin is still being actively developed, you can get a first look here. If you would like to help beta test the skin and influence the final result you can apply here. If you have thoughts or concerns for our particular wiki please let us know on our forum.

Missing AC Subscriptions and the Account Management Website - Link
Turbine is aware that there are some unexpected changes happening to accounts, game logins and forums access. They implemented some updates to the billing systems this week and are working to resolve all of the resultant problems for everyone.

Turbine assures that the website issues are simply a display problem, which has no bearing on your actual account status. Also, your characters are all still there. For more details read here and here.
