    Friday March 30, somewhere in the morning GMT i'll take down servers one by one and do some maintenance / updates.

    No need for panic.

    I'm going to hold off adding mayor functionalities / features till i have more time to actively monitor performance and stability. I might add some features to the xenforo stack but no mayor addons are planned as it is.

    Also for those wondering where the wiki went and why: there was an issue with a database corruption and dataloss, i vaguely recall someone working on salvaging information but i don't think that was very successful. I'm unsure if the broken db is still available, i would have to give it a look.

    The above considered, its a tad cautious to only (re)introduce the wiki features when it will be well supported.

    LOL as you probably know Sue, David Cameron's men told us not to panic re the non-petrol strike, that hasn't been arranged yet, and then told us to stock up. So of course no one is panicking . . .

    That did not go as hoped for, for yet unclear reasons some servers decided to take their ball and run with it when it came the time to reboot them. Migrated the site to new servers instead but didn't get to do all the maintenance I wanted to.

    Will keep an eye out.

    Turns out it was a failure on the virtualization node, moving the machines to a new one solved it (knocks on wood). I might finish up things tomorrow around the same time.

    This maintenance window went a lot smoother, had about 15 minutes on my clock.

    I must say that I'm quite excited by this new tagging function.

    I'm pretty sure it's new. What about it?
  23. Pique Member

    I think I'll ignore all the unsightly 'ZOMG guys come and be my personal army with the zombies and the illuminati because they're coming to GET ME!'

    Or maybe the buy-THIS-spam. Yeah that's the ticket. I'll ignore that too. :D

    (thanks for responding to user request sue)

    Wow, ticking all the non-English forums really cleaned up the Recent Threads, thanks Sue!

    Yes it's new, thought it was a small yet useful addition.

  27. sue Administrator

    Whoa, just got an alert that I'd been fagged by sue.

    The scary part is... I kinda liked it.

    I hope this doesn't encourage posting the same thread in different forums.
    I was thinking it would be nice to have a "see all" link so I could see if I missed something.
    I guess I could sign in with a sock for that.

    Thanks sue. This is a nice addition.

    I love being able to block the foreign language forums like that.
