Resource Forum

Apr 15 2014, 10:57 PM

The default URL as well as many other things for the Resource forum including the entire design have been changed in the past few weeks, during this time challenges, contests, spotlights, etc. were put on hold.

Tonight we have begun posting new challenges, spotlights, and more; and have made all of the changes open to the public. The entire forum has switched over, and this was all accomplished with a minimum of downtime. The forum can still be accessed via the original links provided for it, but the new default URL being used will be:

All of the changes made to the forum were made in an effort to accomodate and add to the forum, it's focus and purpose - to bring quality resources to all service users for their forums - has in no way changed. Even with the new look and new name, absolutely nothing has been taken from the forum, this has all been done in an effort to add more to it, which we have accomplished in a neat and organized manner. For the maximum efficiency and use for all users.

We look forward to seeing what people think of these changes and welcoming all new and old users to explore the newly re-modeled resource forum.

Server Migration/Maintenance

Apr 11 2014, 08:28 AM

As a result of degraded performance (some freezing/pausing in pageloads) in the past few days we are upgrading the service's DDoS protected system from virtual to dedicated. This will improve overall performance in the future as well since it is a dedicated server.

Unfortunately this comes on short notice because our DDoS protected provider, Black Lotus, is unable to fix our system so we have been given a dedicated one to migrate to.

Migration of DDoS protection once everything is set up and ready to go should only take about 10-20 minutes while we do the switch over, however, I need to prepare the dedicated server to perform this move correctly. This will hopefully be completed by end of the day on Saturday. I will provide more updates when we're ready to conduct the transfer.

Thanks for your patience.
