Lost my server - A warning on restartingFollow

Just thought I'd post what happened to me last night so that other people in the same position may be warned.

I started out as a Lalafel Archer in Gridania. I chose the Figaro server since FF3 (yes I still call it 3 not 6 lol) was my first RPG so there was a fondness for my choice of server. Things were ok at first. But one thing really bugged me; my name. I chose the option to carry my FFXI server as my surname. So having a large block o' text over my head reading "Rockmonix Valefor" was starting to eat at me.

I decided to restart my character before I got too far into things. I deleted my character and began to remake. From the time of first creation to deletion took about 2 hours. Once my character was quickly remade with the now shorter surname of "Vale" it was time to hop back into Figaro... only there was no more Figaro to be found, it wasn't on the list of servers.

I tried again and again to go back and forth to refresh the server list, I exited the game and rentered but the choices were all the same; Figaro was gone and here I sit on Bodhum.

So be warned that if you're on your preferred server and maybe have already found some new friends and you're thinking of restarting your character for whatever reason; a name change, an appearance change, a city change, or even just a race change, you may not be allowed back.

This happened last night before any maintenance. But just out of curiosity. Where did you see them say that character creation was down?

yeah, there is server congestion on a few servers right now. if you want figaro you will have to wait... probably will be available again after maintenance.
Quote:
We are experiencing congestion of player characters in certain areas on the Lindblum World, in addition to the worlds mentioned in the previous announcement. Due to this, character creation on these worlds has also been suspended.

We will inform you when character creation is reinstated.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.

*Character creation is suspended on the following worlds.- Cornelia World- Gysahl World- Mysidia World- Figaro World- Lindblum World- Selbina World.
