Subject: System Problems - Mon Jan 30
Date: Jan 30 12
Our deepest apologies for the system problems that we've experienced for the last few hours. The issues affected all players, and no one could get to the site for a few hours.|
One of our main servers completely died, and required some serious CPR to get it back up and breathing. Fingers are crossed that the issue is fixed -- at least for now.
I will be replacing the entire server with a new one over the coming week, which should fix the problem for good and also speed up the site overall.
Again, sorry for the downtime. The global challenge set that was running when the problems started is still running now, and shall until this evening.
Please feel free to leave feedback for the site administrators. We will take all feedback into account as we tweak and
add new features.
The old reply to thread function was removed because it got to the point where people weren't even reading the
announcements and assuming, by default, that they were somehow being wronged or forgotten or insulted or abused or cheated out
of something in some manner.
