    2019-04-23 Site Downtime

    Yo, The site database went offline due to an issue with hosts in the San Jose availability zone. Once the provider sorted their issues we came back up! Thanks, //wthww
  2. Hello All, I will be updating the site software and underlying stack to the lastest version of each component. Please be aware that the site will be unavailable during the hours of 22:00-24:00 in PDT, which is UTC -7. Please keep your eyes on the IRC at irc://irc.oshaberi.ne.jp/#68kmla - or - Twitter @68kmla Thanks, //wthww
  3. Hello All, Apologies for the extended downtime, I severely underestimated the time required to make a snapshot of the site on our current vps platform. Crappy disk performence; so it goes. Please let us know if you run into any issues. Thanks, //wthww

    Unable to access the Wiki

    Hello All, I finally got a free weekend, the wiki is back and has been upgraded to the latest version. Thanks, //wthww
  5. Apologies for the extended downtime, life gets in the way! Please continue to let us know about issues on the new site here. //wthww
  6. Hello All, The software that our site runs on has been upgraded. A few things everyone should know: All post data must be reprocessed in the background. The site will be a little slow to respond until this has been completed. Posts and their attachments from the old phpbb site have been recovered and will begin to appear as post data is rebuilt. A few users accounts have had the email field reverted to what the value that was on the old phpBB site due to how I went about merging in the content. We know which accounts were impacted and those users will receive notifications from the admin team as we change the field back to the correct value. Invision Community 4 is a lot different, but much is the same. We're still learning some of the features/quirks of the new version. Thanks for your patience while we worked to get the upgrade in place. If you happen to encounter an issue with the new site, please in this thread so that we may keep a central store of problems as they occur. Thanks for your patience and continued use of our community, The 68kMLA Admin Team
  7. Hello All, We have migrated a copy of the site from a few days ago into a test instance for beta testing. It would be greatly appreciated if folks would assist in the testing effort. Please reply to this thread if you would like your account to be enabled on the test site, which resides here. NOTE: All replies /not/ related to requesting access will be removed. EDIT: Please use this thread to talk about the beta site. Thanks, //ulterior

  21. Hello All, We had to do a database rollback due to some issues with upgrading the software. A few hours of posts were lost, unfortunately. Apologies, and thanks for your time! //ulterior
  22. Hello All, Sorry for the delay in fixing problems with email after the migration. Emails are now working as expected. Please let an admin know via the bug tracker thread if you aren't receiving emails you think that you should be. It may take a little while for dns and spam filtering services to catch up with the change, so please check your spam bin. Thanks for your patience and understanding, //ulterior

  24. Hello 68kMLA Community, Life, the universe, and everything has gotten into the way of the day-to-day for the admin team in recent times. In order to provide a more consistent experience we've been deliberating on inviting site members to join the moderation team. The admin team is happy to announce that Gorgonops has accepted our invitation to help steer this crazy train, providing us with experience, perspective, and the time commitment that come with volunteering to mod a lively site such as ours. Hats off to Gorgonops, //ulterior [wthww]
