The Site is Almost Back!

Postby Naggie » 25 Feb 2015, 15:28

After many hours of hard labour, I've gotten the site back up online. Thanks to an old back-up I made, I've managed to restore most of the site's content. There is of course the issue of some recent files not being included. For the time being, I think we will have to survive. These files are avatars as well as attachments. There are still quite a few bugs that needs sorting out, and I'm doing my best to fix them all. It will take some time to get it all, but if you find a bug or something that's incorrect, post here in this thread to let me know.

I am fully aware that the site has been offline for far longer than expected. It has been a nightmare for me. I've gotten plenty of PMs and mails and facebook chats and whatnot informing me that I've failed as a technical admin. I've been working almost 90 hours straight with this issue now, and with this post I can happ0ily inform you that I've made some progress. We are now able to post on the site, but it also means that the old anti-spam MOD is back. You know, the MOD that prevented almost everyone from posting at all. I am trying to get rid of that MOD without corrupting the database again. So there's still plenty of work left to do, but right now I will need some food and some sleep before I continue.

Don't worry. We'll be here even if the site is down again. Thank you for the great effort you put into the site, even though you are not so active in the hobby anymore.

Hey thanks for reanimating the site. I've got no idea how much time it costs or what you would be doing.. but I'm guessing you invested a lot of your spare time on the site last days.

Best Wishes for the Site :thumbsup:

Thanks for getting it up and running again -- I know a lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes that users are generally not privy to.

... this made me angry. Totally unnecessary! I know they should be ignored but I just don't understand those people. Grrrr :mad:

Just curious- Is anyone else having problems adding a profile picture? It won't give me the option to add one. It just says display gallery, reset, and submit. It won't let me add a picture. :confused:

I've been having issues with the avatar uploading feature. I think I got it fixed now. It seems I can upload a new avatar on GWH's account anyway ;)

It seems as though the site is back to running properly, all them messages at the top of the page are gone :D

Someone has been putting in some overtime I'm guessing, thanks :thumbsup:
