Don’t you love that title? Well, that’s what we’ve been doing behind the scenes for two weeks! What would have normally been a smooth and easy move to a new server turned out to be a sidewinder of gory dirty coding tricks, mixed in with death defying feats and really some amazing genius by our sly friend Foxly. He’s the awesome person behind the code that hosts all those images on your profiles, which by the way, you can now have more of! We have room for growth! So stretch out everyone!
The move was not without some casualties though and we apologize. We had to resort to a 2 week old backup of the site because of some data corruption that couldn’t be resolved. New members who joined during those two weeks will receive an email from us very soon to welcome them back. (If you were one of those members and you are reading this… very sorry. Please rejoin, you won’t become a casualty ever again!) We hope their first impressions weren’t tainted by our slanted pancake eating backflips. But we’ve worked very hard behind the scenes … very hard… excruciatingly painful jedi mind tricks hard… to bring you a better site. It may not look like a lot has changed, but believe us, it has!
Those of you who lost blog posts; Sorry, there wasn’t anything we could do about it. Everything got corrupted during those two weeks of limbo. We hope you will repost what you lost. If we could bring it back for you we would. But, from now on we can definitely provide a more stable site.
We are upgrading everyone’s profile so you can have 50 images! And image sizes are going to be set to 350K instead of 200. We hope this will help. We would always appreciate smaller file sizes as it’s just much easier for us to manage, but if you don’t know how or don’t have time hopefully this will help out. All blogs will also receive more space. At present it’s 10 megs. So we’ll up it to 40 megs.
Thank you for your patience during this transition. And if you see anyone imitating our pancake tricks, please take pity on them. It really is not easy! And do not worry about Ducreux… he certainly isn’t.
