Twilight's Avatar So, some hours ago our server had an unexpected hard reboot which corrupted the database beyond repair. We've had to recover the database from our last backup (17 hours previous to this post), which will mean that there may be some posts missing and such.

Please peruse about to check for your latest posts and see if they're missing, and repost as necessary. I'm pleased to say this is the first time in over a year that we've been down for more than a few moments.

Thanks Jenni for quickly waking up and getting our backup restored, without even being late for work! We appreciate it!

Site Updates
Jul 29, 2015 - 9:04 PM - by Twilight
Twilight's Avatar A not-so important set of updates today:

  • ***Creative Writing forums disabled for newbies***
  • Shout displayed lines extended to 22ish lines to further improve ones ability to keep up with the conversation
  • Post-editing restrictions have been extended to 56 days to help members in their thankless job of updating posts instead of having to double-post
  • I have rediscovered my love of shota, he was apparently napping beneath my mouse pad. Those little fiends will nap anywhere (so cute)
A note and question on shout: Jenni has been considering changing the way shout is displayed. Presently we enter text at the top and the most recent messages appear at the top with everything scrolling down. This is contrary to most every other form of text communication (instant messengers, texts on phones, forums) where text is entered at the bottom and stuff scrolls up as new messages appear.

Would it be useful to people to have shout work this way, or is it fine the way it is? Relocating the text entry field may consume more than twenty minutes of Jenni's time so we need to be sure this is necessary, and by twenty minutes I mean six hours because he doesn't get a lot of time to focus on code changes.

IPv6 Support
Jul 19, 2015 - 9:33 AM - by Jenni
Jenni's Avatar Important announcement, we've just enabled IPv6 support for the site and the IRC!

What does this mean?
If your ISP supports IPv6 you may notice the site loading a little bit faster than it did before. If your ISP only supports IPv4, there shouldn't be any difference at all.

What do I have to do?
Nothing!

Why should I care?
There's a small chance this change may cause issues with parts of the site. If you find something not working please let us know and we'll see what we can do to fix it.
