Jcink Server Status

Dec 14 2013, 10:57 PM

Forum administrators have been asking for a quick easy site to check server status.

Today, we're proud to deliver the roll out of: status.jcink.com.

You can see a live graph of the server response time as well as the twitter feed. This site is intended to not just be a central place to check the status of our systems, but rather a secondary support site for anyone having issues with their access.

The site is currently beta, meaning that it may not function perfectly. Currently, it is monitoring the main web server. It's built using Flot live graphs and custom software we've written up to do service monitoring that I'm calling Pingnode - this will eventually be open source and freely available for anyone to download who wants it.

Please let us know what you think, and thanks for your support!

Have a great Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Paypal Payments [resolved]

Dec 8 2013, 08:08 PM

Currently, instant ad-removal paypal payments aren't functioning. There is an issue that we were made aware of today regarding an ad removal payment that fell through. We're working to resolve this, but in the meantime, you can still pay for ad removal and it will be processed manually.

It is not apparent why they are not being processed, but nonetheless:

  • If you submit an ad removal payment, you will be manually credited for the views your purchased
  • If you purchased ad removal today, you can ask for a credit to your board if you did not get the views.
I have already manually applied credit to all boards I believe who purchased ad removal, but if I missed any, please let me know. Email admin@jcink.com and include the paypal transaction ID.

Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience. We'll repair the automated ad removal system as soon as possible.
