    Server Problems

    As most of you will be aware by now, we've having some problems with the website's server. I thought I'd just post a quick message to fill you guys in.

    In the early hours of Sunday morning some necessary maintenance was carried out to fix an old error we were having where everyone's IP address was the same, rendering our Spam-O-Matic system, which denies the sign up of spambots, useless. You may have noticed in the last month or so how many spambots were appearing on the member list at the bottom of the homepage; we were nearly entering the 100s daily. That problem was fixed days ago, but by tinkering about behind the scenes, we generated an irritating new set of problems.

    The main one was the server intermittently going down making WC a nightmare to use over the last couple of days. Ino has done some work for us tonight and fingers crossed we might be over the hump on that problem, we haven't gone down for over 3 hours now.

    There was an interesting error on Sunday where people were being logged in as other members for a short period of time before the site refreshed you back into your account. Ino has since fixed this problem as well.

    I've noticed today that custom avatars are not working for everyone, although I swear I've also seen avatars from the server fail to load as well. This has yet to be resolved.

    I'm as frustrated by it as you guys are, but we're working behind the scenes to get WC running smoothly again.

    Thanks for your patience,

    The Admin Team.

    The only time I'll ever get to be mod is when you guys botch some behind the scenes stuff. It's okay, I cherished the second.

    As a hardware engineer I know stuff happens. As long as we have a good RAID system we should be fine.

    Re: Server Problems

    Just went down for about 10 minutes for me.

    The past few days I was getting both 521 and 522 errors. This one was 502 though.

    (Mostly putting this here, because I'm too lazy to put it elsewhere to keep track of to figure out the cause.)

    Take your time fixing the problem. Internet and server problems happen, and you just gotta stay calm and work through it.

    I've narrowed it down to when the logs are rotated, which means it's one of the modules powering the server.

    I tried changing my avatar a couple times and the site crashed both times. Maybe I am just that bad of luck?

    Re: Server Problems

    I just joined here and I just wanted to tell you all that what I have seen in the very short time is great informative threads, very friendly members, and people willing to help when I am trying to figure stuff out here. I know I am going to really like this place. I will try and be as active as I can until I go back to teaching on the 24th of August. Then I have 3 days to get my classroom set up and then the kiddos come in on August 27th. I will still try and be active then, but I know it won't be as much.

    As for the Server Problem that shit happens all over the Internet. Take you time and get it fixed to 100%. It really seems like you all know what you are doing.

    I think we're fixed now.

    Also DD, I installed the 'problem users' plugin, and put just you on it.

    Re: Server Problems

    It's not ideal, but whilst we're waiting for the custom avatars issue to be fixed there is a temporary workaround I can do. I uploaded my avatar straight onto our server and selected it like I would an official WC avatar and that seems to stay up all the time now. If people really want to use their custom avatar asap I'd be happy to temporarily upload your avatars to the server for the time being, just PM me what you want to use.

    Bubba Bomb, I can't do the same work around with the Profile Pictures, so that'll have to wait I'm afraid.

    No problem at all. Take your time. I get it up there sometime. It's not really that big of a deal. Plus I found a Dudleys Avatar and that is stylin' & profilin'.

    So is the custom avatar thing not seen by others only? Because mine is still showing up for me...
